Spring has sprung!!!
We have an entire week of warmth and sunshine which concluded with an absolutely spectacular 70 degree weekend! It definitely feels like June, and I am loving it!
Started Saturday morning with a strength sesh followed by a protein smoothie. Then headed into Chicago for my sister in law’s bachelorette party, which was a ton of fun!
I arrived back home around noon today, after dropping off my SIL and of course taking some time to play with her tiny little kitties. The BOY had plans to get his grill cleaned off. I told him stories of the evening while laying in the sun as he drank a beer and scrubbed off his grill. When all was done, I took a quick nap on the couch while the BOY grilled the first meal of the year for lunch. After lunch, we did our grocery store run (along with everyone else) and watched the sad end to the Hawks game.
I am working tomorrow, so it was a productive Sunday. Dinner went into the crockpot, laundry was washed and folded, and bags of veggies were prepped for the week ahead. In an attempt to bribe the BOY to take his lunch to work, I also portioned out fruit and snacks for him for the entire week so all he has to do is make his sandwich. With most of my ‘chores’ complete, I decided it was time to get out a bit and exercise.
I dusted off my bike and filled the tires and then literally rode into the sunset. Our path is a bit flooded, but I was able to ride about 12 miles out and back.
My bike was a bit neglected last summer, and I am planning to do a lot more riding this year! I’m even hoping to do some bike commuting around town if I can.
My first time out was fantastic! When I got back home, the BOY was already working on the meat for tonight’s dinner. I love grill season! And bike season!
For desert we are attempting to make S’mores ice cream. I’ll keep you posted how it goes : ) An hour of riding wore me out (or it was last night’s 5 hours of sleep…ha ha)! Either way, I’m calling it an early one!
How are you celebrating the start of spring?
