Traveling to Vermont this weekend. Hectic week at work. Crazy weather. New nephews. What do all these statements equal? No running. No running for four days straight. To be honest, I hadn’t done anything remotely active from Wednesday of last week until today. Woof. In order to pay for these sins, I did what every good little girl should do: I repented by going out on a 7 mile run today.
Getting back to the weekend, Chris and I stayed with friends in one of the most amazing places I had ever seen. It was an entire home left the way it was intended to be, an artifact of 1972. Each nook and cranny was filled with antiques and unique items. Chris couldn’t help but comment that you could visit this place every weekend for a year and still discover something new each time you visited. Some of our favorite finds included a gentleman’s cookbook from 1962, offering about 16 different recipes to cook eggs; even ones that included “meat jelly”. Please someone explain to me what meat jelly is? Maybe I don’t want to know….
Throughout the weekend, I wasn’t very good at being healthy but I WAS very good at sleeping, being a bum, and being way too indulgent. Seriously…I ate an entire bag of cheddar Ruffles potato chips in the land of healthy, organic, green food.
