It is finally starting to look a bit like spring around here with some sun and blue skies poking through. On the weekend, we just had to take advantage of those moments and took some walks with the dog who very much appreciated getting out there. We took our first walk in the riverbottom park yesterday. It started off beautiful but within minutes of getting going the wind came up and clouds rolled in. But because we were fairly protected by the trees it was still a nice walk. The dog thought he was in heaven. So much to sniff he didn't know where to go first.
Saturday I got my monthly massage. This is something that is a need for me due to some neck and back issues so don't be too jealous because it is not necessarily a relaxing experience. This session was one of those times where it was not so much fun. She beat me up good. Not really, but it sure felt like it when she was working some of those knots out. I almost felt myself automatically calling up the breathing exercises they taught in prenatal. She told me I'd feel tender but better the next day and I told her I'd better or I was looking her up. We laughed but I wonder if she thought I was serious. I was. No, not really, I'm kidding. But I was thoroughly exhausted for the rest of that day. Whew.
Hubby was a sweetheart and treated us to supper that night. We couldn't decide between pizza and chinese food so we ordered pizza from a place in town that has really unusual kinds of pizza. They compete in the international pizza competitions in Las Vegas and have come in as high as Top 13. We got one of our favorites with ttomato sauce, mozza, provolone, feta prosciutoo, tomatoes and fresh grated parmesan. My mouth waters as I type this. Then we tried a new one to add a bit of "chinese" food flavor in there. It had honey garlic sauce (instead of tomato sauce), chicken, pineapple, bacon, sliced almonds and cheddar. It was really different and really good.
I've finished reading 5 books off my Spring Reading Thing challenge. I'm three behind from how many I've read at this point last year, but that's okay because I've done 3 non-fictions in the last month which if you know me, is a minor miracle. If you're interested at all, the reviews are here. Scroll to #'s 6 through 10. I'd love for you to comment (I always love to hear what you think about different titles) but please mention the name of the book you are commenting on in your comment. The blog is set up so that one year's reads and reviews all end up as a running post. It's easier that way to link in my sidebar. But if you don't mention the title it gets a little confusing.
So that's about it for my rambling thoughts on a Monday morning. How was your weekend?
