The weather here is absolutely perfect. The Husband, the dogs, and I spent nearly the entire evening on our patio, watching the sun set and the street grow quiet.
We even ate dinner out on the patio. Y’all know how obsessed I am with outside dining / patio action in general. It was lovely.
I felt a little off all day – just one of those days, you know? I struggled with writer’s block while doing a project, and I wasn’t in the mood to run. Only 24 days out from my marathon, I really shouldn’t be screwing around with my training plan, but I simply did NOT want to run 9.0 miles today. So I met up with Nicole, ran 3.2, and felt good about it. Something is better than nothing, loves! 🙂
Dinner was cooked by the Huz – he made a very, very, VERY spicy stir-fry with lots of veg and whole wheat pasta.
I contributed these little mini biscuits.
Although those little babies look scrumptious, they weren’t very good so I’m not going to share the recipe… I don’t want lots of biscuit lovers to be mad at me! Something was just off with these dollies.
Oddly enough, I was then struck by the urge to make a pumpkin roll. Probably because I realized I had a block of cream cheese sitting in the fridge. I followed this recipe. How come I can never get my pumpkin rolls to look as pretty as the ones in the recipe?
At least it tasted amazing.
Quote of the day: “Don’t wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So what. Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful.” (Mark Victor Hansen)
The proper Englishwoman in you came out in full-force in this post tonight- love it! As well as your pumpkin roll & quote:)
