30 degrees!!

Christmas is getting so close I can smell it!!  Ok, ok, maybe that’s just the pine trees that seem to be lined up on every street corner waiting to be sold and decorated, but still… December 9th?  Where has the time gone??

I finished up another Christmas ornament tonight, but no pictures yet – it’s a gift!  I was so tempted to make the popcorn I was eating last night into Christmas garlands, but I don’t have my tree yet so I decided to hold off for now (much to my tummy’s relief – it was hungry after all that crafting!).  This morning I woke up and was able to drag myself out of bed to go for a run – with a little help from a very wide awake kitty who wanted to play.  I was so glad I didn once I got outside and got going because it makes me feel so energized and alive.  I knocked out another 3.05 miles and was back in time to make a big bowl of Banana Oats before work.  No Fancy mix-ins this time, just plain ol’ Peanut Butter.img_22071Does that just look so delicious??  Warm oats are reason #2 why I love running in the morning.  I come in all cold and then the oats warm me up from the inside out.  Perfect way to start my day!  Especially on a day where the temp on the builing outside read 30 degrees!!!  Now how come we don’t have snow yet??

Tonight I’m meeting friends for dinner at a sushi place I’ve never been to before – Choshi.  I seriously cannot wait!!  Sushi definitely ranks up there in my favorite food list.  I always try to pin down just one food to name as my favorite, but it’s too hard!!  I love sushi, steak, swiss chard pie, popcorn… and the list goes on.  What’s your favorite food (or foods)?
