Final pumpkin post

  • Although I am an introvert, at the 3 hour mark, I felt lonely at the pumpkin patch. However, I read a lot of good blog entries and read some great training books.
  • My son is now old enough that I can embarrass him which is the only reason I didn't bring running clothes or start doing pushups on the picnic benches. If I'd been here by myself, exercise would have happened, because I truly don't care what other people think.
  • I bought a new pig -- a really cute garden stake. I'll post pics later this week.
  • Pumpkin apple muffins are delicious!
  • I need to rethink my eating. Confession: I've fallen into the love of manufactured food trap once again. And as I'm a lazy cook, I'm living on salads and protein bars, because I don't want to cook two dinners. May have to rethink the vegetarian thing, as often times being veg these days means I eat raw almonds, protein bars, baby carrots, and whatever sugary treats I want (one of the benefits of running lots of miles, but NOT the way I want to fuel my body).
  • Note to self -- post butternut squash soup recipe. I just said I'm a lazy cook, but that doesn't mean I don't cook at all. In fact, I'm a good cook, but I'm burned out on the whole dinner thing. I do have a few fabulous fall recipes though, and one of them is an out-of-this-world good butternut squash soup recipe. I promise I'll share it this week!
Time to load up the kidlets and head back home. Happy Monday, friends!

I'm glad things are well in your little world.

Keep doing your thing, you should be so proud of yourself.

Can't wait to see the latest pig you adopted! ;-)

Oh and I'm signed up for the CIM!!!!! We get to run together this year, after all!

I've fallen into the same food trap. Do share that soup recipe - butternut squash is a favorite of mine.
