Yesterday totally felt like spring- thank goodness! After a thorough spring cleaning (which takes about an hour in our tiny place), I went for a long run on the snow-free pavement. Trail running is still a while out, although that brings up the issue of bumping into bears. (Many people here run with a gun, but that makes me more nervous than bears.)
We ate our dinner while basking in the sun on the porch. It felt lovely.
Pile of greens with homemade guac and salsa. The salsa was made by a friend and it is incredible. She refuses to give out her secret ingredients.
Celebratory spring cocktail:
1 small pkg frozen strawberries
2 tbsp raw honey
1 cup sake
Makes two huge servings or four normal servings.
I'll show you the whole cheesecake tomorrow.
Question: Do you have any summer goals? Mine is to run all the way up our 1/2 mile straight-up-and-down death hill (on the completion of a longer run) without stopping. I've been told it can be done, but I've yet to see it.
