Monday Mentionings: January 25

A whole month has passed since Christmas.  Where on earth does the time go?  I have not been too great at taking photos this last month, so I don’t have a lot to share with you today.  The winter weather, cold, grey, and icy, makes for a hibernating Renee, apparently.

Jasper has been a playful little bear lately.

The lake at work was frozen over for most of last week.  The geese spent some time sitting on the ice, then a few days later it was all covered in a layer of snow.

I’ve still been going to cycling classes.  I was able to start running again last week, and unfortunately, my knee pain came back.  I see the Orthopedic doctor again this morning to see what else may be going on.  In the mean time, I’ve had about three weeks of cycling classes, and really enjoy them!! I even had a couple people ask about me when I showed up to Saturday morning’s class, they wanted to make sure I was coming! Talk about making me feel welcome. =)

I ran outside twice over the weekend, both times with Amy.  It felt fan-freaking-tastic to get back out on the roads with Amy.  Saturday morning was a chilly one, we had to bundle up quite a bit and had ac coupe matching bank robber masks on.   We ran again on Sunday morning, and unfortunately the snowy sidewalks slowed us down and cut down our mileage a bit.  Later on Sunday, it warmed up nicely, and the sun came out.  I think most of the snow has melted, which will be great for running this week.

Saturday, I ran some errands, got my oil changed, and then did my taxes! This is the first year I’ve done them all by myself, and it was a heck of a lot easier than I thought it would be.  I even get a refund!  Sunday, I cleaned the bathroom and kitchen, bought groceries, and got a lot of cleaning done around the house.  I hereby declare the weekend an adulting success!  I don’t really think Jasper was as angry as he looks in this picture – I think it was the front flash on my phone that made him squint and put his ears back.  At least, that’s what I’ll continue to believe.

These memes have been going around on Facebook over the last several days, so I may as well share mine.  You can make your own here.
