A day so good, I might repeat it today

Yesterday was our first day back in the Chi.  Harry had to work (boo), but I have the rest of the week to rest my body and brain (and emotions) before school is in session again.

I took that physical rest very seriously yesterday morning.

It's freezing in our house, so I figured some hot oatmeal would be the best decision of the day.  Organic obsession much?

With the spirit of staying warm because of food all day, I text Harry to see if he would like grilled cheese sandwiches with soup for dinner.  I guess half of the city was missing, thanks to some horrible fog, and the way he let me know made me lol.

Second-best decision of the day was hopping on Lola for a spin while watching Game of Thrones.  That is pretty much where Lola will stay -- on the trainer -- for the next little while.

Side note:  The dumb Apple TV remote fell from between my aero bars.  I need a remote holder for my ride.:)

I showered up and went to the store to grab our dinner (we had NOTHING in the house -- that might be the only yucky part about being away from the house for nearly a week and a half).  Amy's has my heart when it comes to soup!

I also picked up some fresh sourdough bread for the grilled cheese sammies.  They came out perfectly.  So perfect, I may have another one for lunch today.

Two things came in the mail yesterday that I was REALLY excited about receiving!

I ordered a Momentum Jewelry necklace last week, and was really stoked to wear it.  I chose "Unstoppable", because that is the spirit that I will embrace this year as I come back to running.  More on that later...!

 MORE PRESENTS!  Some running reads!

I'll be doing a review on each of them, but I'm sure if you're reading this, you know enough about Hansons.:)

The final shot of the day:  All rings filled.

Have an awesome Wednesday, friends!  It's supposed to get SO COLD today, so I might do a repeat of all of my Tuesday, haha.<3
