It’s been a productive morning around here so far.  Yesterday on my drive home from work I started writing out a weekend to-do list (while I was stopped of course!). 


I just love to-do lists.  Some people don’t, but I love em.  It feels so good to cross of items, and especially if I get them all done… which is rare.

This big guy not only kept me company most of the morning, he stole my chair the minute I got up!


Little does he know giving him a bath is one item I’m determined to cross off!

On the top of my list is granola making.  A big thanks to all of you for your comments yesterday… they’ll definitely help me decide what the next spent grain granola flavor will be.  I’m heading to the store soon but have not yet picked the flavor, so hurry and go weigh in on it if you haven’t yet!

What have you been reading this week?  I need to get my hands on a book ASAP, but in the mean time my google reader tells me I have enough reading to do for 5+ years.  Here are a few of my favorites from this week…

  1. I’m a list-making freak!! I have a list for pretty much everything I do 🙂 I don’t always get to cross everything off, but it helps me to know what I need to do next. And I’m the same way…if I’m doing something not on the list already, I will write it on there so I can check it off!

  2. isn’t it not the best feeling ever to cross things off your list!

    ugh i’ve been trying to read one day and it’s not that it’s not good it’s just that i reaaaaaaaaaaallly suck at reading haha i think i’m going to close my laptop and read now!

  3. Confession: I sometimes make lists that have already completed items on them—just so I can feel the satisfaction of crossing them off. Yeah, I’m a weirdo.

  4. Congrats on being certified. That’s awesome. And way to go with those 2 runs. I have never split up my runs and done 2 in one day. I’ve heard it can be good conditioning though. Kind of makes me want to get in another run today 😉
