all noodley

Yesterday when I came home from my track workout, I told John I felt "all noodley."  That's a good thing though, it means I worked hard!  

8 x 200m (@ ~8:00/mi), 2 x 600m loop on the trail (no idea what my pace was, but I was 6 min slower on the second one), 2 x 200m (@ ~8:00/mi).  

After an exciting (and not really in a good way - it seemed like we were running the Psych ward with a side of delivering babies) weekend at work I spent our two days doing a lot of relaxing (John's weekend was less exciting, but he did just as much relaxing with me, it's important to have good company when relaxing).  I finished a book, finished the top of a quilt, and started a new book.  At one point, Kiva decided that she needed to get in on the relaxing and wedged herself between John and me on the couch.

Monday evening we drove up to Arctic Valley so John could drop off some stuff for the espresso shack (go check it out...coffee and snacks at the top of Arctic Valley Rd. Fri-Sun noon-8pm!), it was quite cloudy and spooky up there.

Tuesday morning before my track workout we had blueberry pancakes for breakfast and then went to Costco.  Kiva decided that she was unimpressed by her breakfast and decided to spill it all over the place.

If only she knew what she was like when there was not cheese involved...

It rained pretty hard most of the day on Tuesday, then it got sunny, rained some more, the got sunnier, windier, and stopped raining.  I love Alaska weather!

Now it's off to work today and tomorrow, then the weekend off!
