50's all week and 60 on Wednesday?! Yes, please. I don't even care if it rains.
Also, the sun didn't set until 7pm last night and it was glorious.
I've been craving avocado more lately. I didn't eat them much all winter. Maybe because I think of them as more of a 'summer food'? But this is what I used to fuel myself up for my hour of shoveling last Thursday:
While I was out there digging out my car, I got to talking to a woman doing the same a couple cars down from me. She told me she just recently moved from Connecticut, and the last time she went home to visit, they had 4 1/2 FEET of snow!? I didn't even know how to respond to that. I hope Spring is truly here for you New Englanders.
I was able to get out for a long run again this weekend and there was decidedly less snow. It was also sunny and warm! Like 49 when I went out. It put me in such a good mood :)
Still hoping to run a half at the end of April so I hope this weather continues. I've pretty much had it with the treadmill for this year. I feel like a rat on a wheel on that thing. It's just not natural.
I burnt myself on the toaster oven last night. See that little white spot on my middle finger? On a scale of 1 to 10 how bad would you say that is? Because it felt somewhere around a 250. I took some Tylenol and it somewhat improved.
I re-watched This Is 40 over the weekend and it reminded me how much I love this song:
And finally, I am apparently going to be 36 in a week?! ONE WEEK. I dk where the years of my life are going. It's really true as you get older that time seems to move faster. I wish I weren't turning 36 but I guess it's good that I still only look about 21?! In all seriousness, this year has been pretty good so far and I feel like it's just the beginning of big changes and good news to come. For some reason, I keep feeling like things are going to come full circle this year but I can't quite put my finger on how/why. But then this happened on Friday:
I follow Vegan Treats on IG where they often showcase their soft serve flavors for the week. Gives me something to dream about from Baltimore. A few days ago they posted a new flavor: Bubblegum! A bit of back story here. I always say that I don't really miss dairy anymore and I could go forever without cheese, pizza, yogurt, etc., but there are 2 things I would give the world to taste again. One of them is a Snickers bar (used to be my fave candy as a kid) and the second is bubblegum ice cream. It was my favorite flavor. We used to go mini-golfing at a dairy farm that made their own ice cream when I was a little kid. It was this bubblegum ice cream that first got me sick and took me down the long and winding road to discovering I was lactose intolerant. It hasn't touched my lips since.
Soooooooo, anyway, I responded to Vegan Treats on IG and asked if they would consider featuring this flavor when I come back to Bethlehem for my birthday in 2 weeks. And they responded and said they WOULD! Full circle baby. It's been at least 20 years since I've had bubblegum ice cream and I am finally getting it again two weeks. This is big. This is huge. 36 IS MY YEAR!
Let's do this Monday. Have a great week!
What have you been up to?
If you are an ice cream eater, what's your favorite flavor?
Is the weather becoming gloriously warm in your neck of the woods yet? I hope so!
