Running + Skiing + Cuddling = Weekend

Ugh, Monday! I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling it hard with the time change. It’s nice to have an extra hour of light at night though! At least my clock in my room will finally display the correct time. I didn’t change it back in the fall! I had a pretty productive weekend.. I’d say it was pretty marvelous!


After school on Friday I went to a friend’s house to make a project for English. We read To Kill a Mockingbird so we had to make a movie acting out scenes!

I had 2 great runs. I can’t even explain how nice it is to be running on the actual road instead of snow!

There was some great cross country skiing too. Sometimes I really take it for granted that I have so many trails just a few miles from my house!

Yesterday we saw a porcupine! He’s kind of hard to see but he was so cute!

Cooking With Lynn was pretty fun too.

I ended the weekend with some cuddling with the princess.

And that’s about it! I got some posts prewritten since I won’t have much time during the week to write. Yay Drivers Ed… track also starts tomorrow! I’m gonna be a busy girl!

Do you remember reading To Kill a Mockingbird?
I loved it. 

Is there still snow where you live?

    I can barely remember what To Kill a Mockingbird is about to be honest haha. It seems like forever ago! Love the video though- well done!

    Glad to see you got in a good run and I’m so jealous of your ability to go skiing whenever! Although, I don’t know how much I can complain because it’s 75 degrees and pouring sunshine here haha!

    Have a lovely week <3

    To kill a mocking bird is one of my favorite books! I love it so much! Cross country skiing looks like so much fun but a lot of hard work. I think I’ll have to add it to my bucket list.

      You’ve got to get out and do it! It’s a blast. And I know what you mean about thinking spring is near.. yesterday it was 59 degrees and Thursday it’s back down to 9!

      EMILY! Thank you so much!! Those sandwiches are awesome!

      And the roads? Terrible! I’m literally running through constant puddles! It’s ruining my shoes, haha!
