Refreshing Times

Today, I did a whole lot of nothing. And that’s just fine, because I really don’t have that much to do.

I slept in, and it was wonderful. Breakfast was a nice yogurt-and-cereal bowl



Plain yogurt, a not-ripe-enough banana, chia, Cinnamon “Life” and bran flakes.

breakfastAfter breakfast, I did some yoga. I had a 60 min. cross-training session on the schedule, and I was going to go swim at the Rec, but the pool was closed for a meet, so I did yoga in my room instead.

I downloaded “Yoga for Runners” from YogaDownload. It was HARD! I was really tired by the end.

I took a quick shower and then went to lunch with Allen at the dining hall.

We had a really bad experience today! On Saturdays, one of the dining halls serves “brunch” from 10:30-2, and I was excited for pancakes, but because it was so busy the were only “allowed” to serve one pancake per person. And the line was really long so I didn’t want to stand in line again. I was very frustrated. And then they were out of coffee, orange juice and Gatorade. Sometimes campus dining is convenient but sometimes I miss having my own kitchen.

After lunch, Allen and I hung out and watched some football. I took a nap, which was very nice. And then we went Christmas shopping! I only bought one thing but I got some ideas for other people. Hoping to order some gifts online soon.

Dinner was purchased at HyVee again because I needed yogurt and wanted sushi.

I had some Sugar Cookie Sleigh Ride after dinner:

ice creamMoose Tracks is such a good flavor. Mostly because of the mini peanut butter cups. I always save them for the end. This bowl had five!

Tonight I think we are going to watch some Boy Meets World. I love that show. We left The West Wing DVDs in St. Louis, and I’m kind of sad. Can’t wait for break!
