Answer: me, I am always excited about snow. Also Kara, Kara is very excited. Even more excited than me probably.
So anyway, we got a lot of snow last week. Apart from being unreasonably excited, I accomplished a few other things too:
Did some workouts
I went on some runs. I went to the gym. It was all mostly so-so, with two exceptions:
I went to an actual yoga class. I have good intentions about doing this once a week, but most weeks I end up just doing a 15-20 minute video at home because it seems like too much trouble to go to the gym for it….(It’s a 5 minute walk from my office to the gym…so much trouble.) So I actually went last week. It was, unsurprisingly, really not much trouble at all.
I WENT FOR A TRAIL RUN IN THE SNOW IT WAS GREAT. Ahem. And then my hands were numb for about an hour afterwards, which was weird. Not painful, just weird.
I did fun things
Ok, I do fun things regularly, but mostly it’s reading. This weekend I managed to fit in some more active fun things:
I played some piano (by which I mean electric keyboard). This is a song I played well in high school…30 minutes of practice the other day got me back to hitting the right notes. In the first 2 lines. And not at the right tempo. Turns out if you don’t practice a skill, it gets rusty. Who knew? At this rate I’ll be able to play the whole song sometime in January.
I started I sewing project. By which I mean I chose a pattern and washed the fabric. But at least that makes me more likely to actually start sewing.
Earlier in the week I cooked up the last of my CSA apples to stuff inside some soft pretzels. Nom.
I did less fun things
The usual: cleaning house. Snowblowing/shoveling. And calling my insurance, only to find out I didn’t actually need to call because everything I was calling about was in-network. Which is probably the best result you can expect from a call to your insurance.
What’s a hobby you want to pick back up?
