Despite the fact that I haven’t posted since Monday, there is really only one important thing to note: I am HOME.
After one ridiculously busy/stressful school week, I drove 3 rainy hours south to celebrate my friend’s
twenty second 1st anniversary of her 21st birthday and run a 5K race with Girls on the Run before traveling for 4 more slow and slushy hours to the enchanting place I call home.
near already here! [Photo courtesy of my car company… don’t you worry.]
Y’all know how anxious I’ve been to get home. I haven’t been in Humboldt since August 10th, which is a longgg time for this homebody. As soon as I walked into my bedroom, I could already tell that it’s going to be hard to leave this place again come next Saturday.
I’m looking forward to a rejuvenating week vacation from my usual routine. However, my planner is already filling up quickly and my to-do [to-bake] list is stretching longer by the day. So after a soothing shower, I got right to checking something very important off my [to-eat] list: sushi!
My dad & I enjoyed a delectable dinner tonight at our favorite, local Japanese restaurant: Sushi Spot. The usual Dragonfly Roll for me + hot green tea. [I also had a plate of sautéed spinach, broccoli, and zucchini with a honey miso drizzle – love my greens!]
Ahhh… there’s not a lot better in life than a stomach full of sushi with the first fire of the season burning in the woodstove. Well, I’m running on a measly 4 hours of sleep at the moment, so I should probably call it a night; I want to be well-rested for the week ahead.
Here’s what’s on the agenda:
Sleeping inOutdoor runs & DanceFit.
- Baking and more baking.
- Haircut time – finally!
- Blog updating + guest posting.
- Photo organizing.
- Holiday decorating.
- A turkey-less Thanksgiving.
- Studying, quizzing, and projecting – ick.
- Time with family + friends.
You should expect to be seeing a lot more of NN on the Run in your reader this upcoming week :)
Sweet dreams from rainy, Northern CA.
