*That night Chuck wants something sweet so I make another cake because they are so darn easy to make in the microwave. But I made up some cream cheese frosting for his. Used a little too much cream so was a little too runny. But he loved it.
*Eating out can be a challenge. I love Jason's Deli but sandwiches just aren't part of my eating regime right now. So I got a side salad....
...and a Beefeater sandwich.
What I left behind. It all works out and I had a happy tummy. No bread or chips for me. Just sandwich guts and salad.
*Found a blind baby duck in the parking lot at Jason's Deli! Was less than 3 days old. It still had its egg tooth. So we drove to a wildlife rehabilitation center across town. Rachel and I volunteered there with the baby birds one summer. Baby duck was left in good hands and seemed to be perfectly fine other than the blindness. They'll take good care of him. He was so sweet and would snuggle under my chin.
*Ran 7 miles Saturday morning in the cold. I freaked out when I got inside and my fingertips were purple. I remember a nurse telling me once that when the fingers start to turn color is when someone is about to die. But was it purple or black that they turn?! I was near death, I tell you! It went away with a hot shower which cures everything.
*Did I mention that I ran 7 miles? Longest distance since my half marathon in December. The last mile sucked!!
*Eating out. Love to go out with friends. This time to Crave Sushi.
I got a hot rock...
....where I cooked my own steak. Delicious and very cool.
...and tuna and salmon sashimi with ginger and hot wasabi. Yum!
*Went to a friend's house in midtown Houston. Very cool place! Three story townhouse!
Good to hang out with friends we haven't seen in years!
They have a keg of St Arnold's beer! Everyone was having a very good time. I had a couple of sips from Chuck's glass. A little too many carbs for me to indulge.
*And off we were to beautiful downtown!
....to Molly's Pub to see Tomfooligans!
Great band. Always a lot of fun to hang out with them. The video quality is not that great. The guy in the white at the end was trashed and later took a nose dive into the stage.
GREAT weekend and so much fun.
*Got to watch another friend make beer Sunday! What a cool process. Gonna have to try that someday soon.
*Weight is still going down so I'm a happy
And that's my weekend! Hope you had a great one.
