I actually feel like I have accomplished a lot today. I woke up early, went to the farmers market, Academy, and walmart. So I now have weeks supply of squash, oranges, grapes, eggs, sweet potatoes and bananas. I also have toilet paper and candy cane hersheys kisses. But perhaps the most important purchase of the day was running apparel.
Thanks to the clearance rack at Academy I now own a pair of spandex shorts, a pair of spandex capris, 2 short sleeved running shirts and 1 long sleeved running shirt. Call me crazy but I really think that the clothes make a huge difference.
For example, I just did my 15th Jillian Michaels workout and I'm pretty sure that I jumped a little higher over that pretend jump rope. I also completed the work out then went outside and jogged up and down my dead end road. In my spandex shorts. In 40 degree weather. Now would be the time to call me crazy.
I've been reading The Non-Runners Guide to Marathons for Women by Dawn Dias... which I highly recommend. It's highly entertaining but at the same time full of good advice. She also thinks that the clothes make a big difference.
oh, I also accomplished my good deed for the say. My Donate, Dine and Wine group has decided to be 'elves' and buy presents for 2 teenage boys living with cancer in Oklahoma. One would like gift cards for Borders or Barnes & Noble and the other wanted a blue, yellow or red North Face hoodie pullover. I found the hoodie online and ordered it today so hopefully it will be here sometime this coming week. If only we got to deliver it in person so we could meet them! I hope he loves it.
As far as my etsy store is going, I'm pretty pleased. I haven't sold anything yet, but I'm not really a good saleswoman. But I'm making some good connections and finding some amazing handmade gifts along the way. Two of my paintings have been featured in treasuries! My red Pink Floyd painting has been featured in 4 treasuries... which I am incredibly proud of. I've been working on some ornaments, although it's probably too late to post them. But I could still give them as gifts.
So, all in all it's been a pretty successful day. The tree is decorated, the chili is cooking and in 2 hours OU will play Nebraska for the very last time for the Big 12 Championship.
