My day feels upside down and backwards and I’m just trying to keep up!
I think I am thrown because of my last minute dash to Pennsylvania yesterday. Today feels like Saturday and Sunday all at once.
Over the weekend we found out that my maternal grandmother was hospitalized with pneumonia and other recurring health issues. My mom headed up to be there on Sunday. Tuesday she called saying that it was time to come visit because my grandmother may be nearing the end of her life.
It’s times like this when I am grateful for Tate and I’s decision to move “back East” and be closer to family.
I am sorry to say that it had been three years since I’d seen her and it was very important to there, even just for a few hours.
The cartime totaled just under 12 hours roundtrip but I had great company
Brother, niece, sister ♥
My sister Yarrow was a rockstar and drove the whole way (after we rendezvoused on I-81 between C’ville and WV)! Thanks!
I returned home just after 2 a.m. and crashed hard then slept in late this morning, hence the weekend weird feeling.
Last day at the gym :(. I spent it in a Pilates Reformer class and spent a little time on the treadmill then hurried home to EAT! I was hungry!
This meal came together quickly and was perfect! Filling, tasty, and healthy.
Veggie “Fried” Rice Gracefulfitness Style

Served with a steamed turnip and glass of ginger soda! Dessert was the last Super Snacky Snap Happy Ginger Snappers. Time to make more of these, they were great!
It’s another gorgeous day in the neighborhood so I hope/plan to get out on a walk (and rack up some miles) after doing a few things around the house.
