Fall is in the Air
I woke up this morning to the leaves blowing and the scent of fall in the air. Yum! I missed fall last year (Lima has 2-3 months of summer and 9-10 months of fog and chill) and have been looking forward to it for a few months now.
It seemed like the perfect morning to head to the market.
Love this amazing wood tub! And fill it full of winter squash and I am head over heels!
Into the bag went over 7 pounds of squash plus this beauty
And pie I will make! This sucker weighs over 6 pounds, I think a few pies may be in order.
We also bought some shiitake mushrooms and promptly turned them into lunch.
Behold, gluten-free crust piled high with fresh tomatoes, sauteed red onions, shiitakes, and crook-neck squash, topped with feta and eXtra sharp cheddar. SO AMAZING.
I am not gluten-free but I had a leftover crust from Thursday, when I made dinner for my Tate’s brother and his wife (and their brand-new bitty baby!). I used a mix and it was easy and turned out tasty.
Today’s workout featured this little present I got myself a few days ago.
I was attracted to this dvd because it features three 20 minute workouts, each with upper and lower body strength training, cardio, and abs. Today I did the level one and it was great. Simple but challenging. I am looking forward to checking out levels 2 and 3. Tate and I went for a 25 minute slow run afterward. I really wasn’t in to mood for yoga so instead I did a long and deep stretching session. Just what I need after 8 hours in the truck yesterday!
By Tuesday we should be full on homeowners and residents of Charlottesville!
Any extra special plans for the long weekend? It’s my last weekend and so I plan to live it up by spending time at my mom’s, my dad’s, Tate’s mom’s, and Tate’s dad’s. Yowza, that’s a lot of running around! (But they’re all SO worth it 🙂 )
