It was a l-o-n-g drive from Flagstaff to Salt Lake City Sunday. I hit the road at about 8:30 and didn’t arrive until 6:30 p.m. Since then, I’ve been mainly relaxing at my brother’s. I’ve even managed to get some writing/admin work done in the mornings when the kids are in school and everyone else is working.
The scene that greeted me when I arrived: A welcome from Sharon and the kiddos.
Highlights from the drive:
Other happenings? Brats and grilled veggie kebabs for dinner Monday night, and a walk with my sis-in-law after the kiddos were in bed.
Sadly, I forgot to clip my pedometer onto my pocket Monday morning, so I have no idea how many steps I actually took.
Breakfast Tuesday was something I’ve been meaning to try: One of Lindsay’s Quinoa Breakfast Bars. My sis-in-law made some a while back and had ’em in the freezer. I’ve wanted to try them, but hadn’t gotten around to making my own batch yet. They clean out their freezer; I get to satisfy my curiosity. Win-win.
Better yet, it was delicious. I’m going to have to make some of my own when I get back home.
It’s been low-key and relaxing … just the way I like a vacation. Just getting out of Flagstaff for a change of scenery has been awesome.
Then there’s Blend Retreat. It’s getting closer and closer, and I’m getting more excited every day. It’s going to be so much fun! I just hope I can keep up with all the twenty somethings who are far fitter than I am …
