Friday at last

I was up late last night at a meeting, but in the end of a long day we got home and fell into bed. The day went well. I was healthy and happy, and even made a yummy healthy supper (butternut squash saag). Other than the homemade small cake donut a friend made for me (which I ate...even tho I didn't need to- I mean how often do you get to have a homemade from scratch chocolate cake donut? Not often enough!) I had a healthy day...but a long one.

This morning, I was tired but I was up and in to the gym. I wasn't sure what to do and it was the yelly instructor teaching class that I don't like, so I did ZWOW #1, modifying the pistol squats into only half way down, plus same # one legged lunges (my knees won't do full pistol squats yet...but I'll get there...). Then I threw in 2 sets on the hip/butt machine, back raises, hanging crunches and side crunches at the end and a few minutes on the bike to cool down before a nice long hot shower. A good workout. Today is another busy day, but it's friday :)
Tomorrow we are going to see the old silent film the Thief of Baghdad with the soundtrack played by the local symphony chamber choir! I've been looking forward to it for a while now. AND Saturday evening we are getting together with friends, so it should be fun. Sunday is thesis day. With any luck I will roll through the weekend accomplishing much and napping here and there.
I have to bring the weirdest possible dessert I can think of to the gathering tomorrow...so after searches, I am going to attempt red bull confetti cupcakes. If I survive the taste test I'll let you know how they turn out. I also have to check on my mead on the weekend to make sure it's fermenting OK. With any luck it is and I can rack it next week into the secondary and then ignore it a few months...

Whew...that looks exhausting to write all that out. It will be fun though! We're starting to plan our summer...it's going to be exciting!!! By the end of the weekend we should have it all worked out. I'll keep you all posted :)
Never a dull moment around here!

Have a great weekend!

cake donut! you wouldn't been clinically insane to turn that down.

I can't do pistol squats. They feel funky, like my knee is gonna crack in 25 different places and therefore require extensive surgery. So I just avoid the pistol instead.
