I headed out for my run a little earlier than usual this morning in hopes of catching a magnificent sunrise.  You know the saying, “Red sky at night, sailors delight.  Red sky at morning, sailors take warning.”  Well, I figured with the winter storm warning we are under that we would have a beautiful sunrise.  It was okay…


I always check the temperature before I head out to run, except for some reason this morning, I forgot.  I didn’t realize that it was only 15° until I got home.  Fortunately,  because I was running so much earlier than usual, I wore two unlined nylon shells on top of my long sleeved shirt (I usually only wear one).  Today my upper body was the perfect temperature, but my thighs got a little cold and about ten minutes into my run I realized should have worn a pair of capris under my running pants.


After my run I caught up on a lot of paperwork, trained a couple of clients, hit up the grocery store, trained another client, and came home to this…


Joseph decided to come home and weather out the storm with us (he lives about twenty minutes away); and while here, make his specialty, chocolate amaretto mousse.


While he made dessert, I made Tuscan tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches for dinner…


And then we had some of Joseph’s mousse for dessert!  Not a particularly healthy dinner, but when it comes to snow storms, it seems to be an excuse for favorite comfort foods!


As I write this, we only have about an inch of snow on the deck, but it’s only been snowing for a couple of hours.  Hopefully, we’re going to get the 9-12 inches of snow that is forecast before it ends.

I’ve watched our “pet” raccoon run across the deck twice.  See his second set of tracks?  Maybe some day I’ll share my raccoon stories with you…
