Happy hump day! I hope your week is off to a great start. Currently New Jersey is getting hit with another snow storm…yes it’s March 21st and snowing here. Fingers crossed it’s not as bad as they are saying it will be. I hope the weather by you is much nicer! Have a great day 🙂
Due to a project that is happening at work, my hours have been set back a little bit. Which is great because it means an extra hour of sleep in the morning. I’ll never complain about that! Well I won’t complain until it’s 4 o’clock and I realize I have to stay at the office another hour 😉 Before I headed out the door though, I scrambled an egg and grabbed an oatmeal muffin to enjoy.
During lunch, I made a ton of progress on Twelve Years A Slave by Solomon Northup. I saw the movie in theaters when it first came out and really enjoyed it. Well I didn’t enjoy the topic but I thought that was interesting and the film was extremely well made. The book had been on my reading list since then and I finally picked it up. I was a little hesitant since it was written in 1853 but it has been a great read. I knew what the story is but hearing it in Solomon’s own words is something else.
After work, the storm had already started. It was hailing and the sidewalks/parking lot at my apartment were starting to get chunky as the hail was beginning to freeze. I decided going for a run wouldn’t be the safest decision so I opted for a full bikini body guide workout instead. Man oh man, 28 minutes of legs and they were jello!
I hopped in the shower then got lunch ready for the next day while catching up with Alex. Once lunch was set, I started a pot of water for dinner. I made a favorite of ours – broccoli and sausage cavatelli. Full disclosure I didn’t use cavatelli pasta because I never see it in stores. I just use a box of whatever I have on hand. Dinner came together in no time and was the perfect late March storm dinner.
While we ate, we watched Billions. I’m on episode 2 in the first season and love the show! It’s a show about the struggle between U.S Attorney General in New York, Chuck Rhodes, who tries to build a case against Bobby Axelrod, a hedge fund manager. It revolves around power, wealth and corruption and I love it. When the episode ended, we hung out in front of the fire and read. I ended up finishing the story. Personally I enjoyed it but I don’t know if it would be as enjoyable if you hadn’t seen the movie first.
Question of the day: How was the first official day of spring for you?
