I spoke too soon


Things are starting to get busy at work, which is good, but it means I came home very tired today. Thinking that I’d broken my fear of going home before the gym, I decided to repeat yesterday’s routine and relax before taking a 5 o’clock spinning class. Nope, didn’t happen. I guess my epiphany just wasn’t as exciting today. But, I did clean the kitchen and start on a project for work that I had been putting off for a while, so I guess it was a good thing. Since Matt was in class, I heated up a new soup for dinner. I’m not usually a big fan of pre-made soups (cans make me nervous) but this one was really good and the chunks of sweet potato kind of dissolved in each bite.





I also had a ham and gouda on an incredible new raisin bread from When Pigs Fly Bakery.


Matt found a cupcake with cream cheese icing in his office, so he brought it home just now and we gobbled it down.
This week is moving sooo slowly; I’m not supposed to wish it away, but I’m really looking forward to a relaxing weekend and a pint of pumpkin and it’s only Tuesday. I guess House Hunters will have to do for now:)


PS: If you live near Boston, GO to Masa. I’ve been many times for tapas, once for dinner, and I finally when to brunch with my friends on Sunday. The corn bread melts in your mouth and is divine with the sweet butter and haberano jam, and my southwestern eggs benedict on cheddar biscuits was somethin special.

    I think it’s always hard to come back to a work week after such a fun weekend. I’m with you..but tomorrow’s hump day!

    It’s tough to feel motivated in this kind of weather. What happened to the crisp, clear weather of fall ?!

    I’m generally with you when it comes to canned soups, but Pacific (and Trader Joe’s) boxed soups are great in a pinch. They’re usually a bit too salty for my taste, so I try to hunt down low-sodium varieties. The Thai Sweet Potato sounds yummy!

    LOVE Masa :). Fun drinks, delicious food, and a cool atmosphere.

    I always speak too soon. I workout once and say I’m back in my groove and then the next day I eat 10 pancakes and sit on my sofa all night. It’s hard to get a schedule going when you have so many things going at once, so I just accept the fact that I’m in school and work full time, so I’ll fit working out in where I can.
