Seven Things: About Triathlon Training

Thursday, March 8th, 2012

1. I’ve wanted to do a triathlon since I was 20.  At that point I don’t know that I had ever run a complete mile outside of middle school gym class.  I started the Couch to 5k program and taught myself how to run.  (I did however swim semi-regularly, and swimming a half mile or […]

Seven Things: We’ve recently watched on Netflix

Wednesday, February 8th, 2012

On pretty much any given night, after having cooked, eaten and cleaned up dinner, you will find husby and me curled up on the couch spending our last wakeful hour or two with a show or movie or documentary on Netflix. We have a Kinect, so we can control Netflix vocally, by using arm movements, […]

Saturday, December 17th, 2011

Sorry guys, I know this is super late. I know my faithful readers anxiously wait for the seventh of each month to find out what my list of seven things will be, and here I am over a week late. I blame finals and school as usual. The title pretty much sums it up.  These […]

Seven Things: I can because I can

Monday, November 7th, 2011

I started canning things a couple years ago.  Our neighbor house had a couple pear trees, and was sitting vacant, so one afternoon at the height of pear season my brothers and I took the ladder and pillaged the trees.  We brought home a couple grocery bags full of pears, and one of the things […]

Seven Things: to cook with all the wonderful late summer fruits and veggies

Sunday, August 7th, 2011

Fiance and I have a half farm share this year, which means that every 2 weeks we get to pick up a box of veggies from a local (about an hour and a half away) farm.  Having such fresh produce has been wonderful.  Every other friday I excitedly wait for the list of veggies we’ll […]

Seven Things: I love about the new apartment

Monday, July 11th, 2011

Fiance and I moved in together about 2 weeks ago.  So far we’ve made it through the move, changing a flat on the side of the freeway, and removing a wine stain from a white carpet since we shacked up.  All without killing each other.  I think we’re in it for the long haul, folks. […]
