pizza and beer. . . timeless

One of my favorite runs is on the greenbelt trail near ames.  Natalie took me to run an all new section of the trail that she knew about but I have never been on.  It was a beautiful, secluded run and gives me many more plans for country, trail running. 

Upon returning home, I didn't feel like cooking.  I started heating leftovers and then spied a left over slice of Black Market Pizza in my fridge.  I must drink a beer when I eat pizza, which is not always good when I'm dehydrated.  It takes 45 seconds to microwave pizza so that's how long I gave myself to chug a glass of water.  I finished the water in 22 seconds and spent the next 27 seconds watching the microwave count down and opening this beer. 

Ironically, the friend who gave me the Shock Top also has a similar hairstyle.  This makes me giggle.  At this point, I'm pretty chilled from being sweaty and also smell ridiculously. . . well, like a runner.  I am absolutely capable of shaving my left leg with my left hand and eating my pizza slice with my right hand.  I do know this as a fact.

New dining table

I bought a new dining room table.  I love it.  it makes me happy. 

Last week I purchased a bag of pears and waited for them to ripen.  I checked them every day.  Not ripe.  On thursday, boom, all the pears were ripe. . . for about 15 minutes. . . .and then they started to go all squishy and bruised.  There are only so many pears a person can eat in 15 minutes.

This week, I bought avocados.  They were getting squishy on the edges and needed to be eaten.  Based on the experience from the previous week, I decided that I would eat all of them at once just for me. 

An entire avocado contains 320 calories due to the high fat content, which is a lot for such a small amount of food. Enjoy them in moderation, and use them to replace foods containing saturated or trans fats, not in addition to these foods

I did not look that fact up until today.  I may have eaten four avocados.  Now, you ask me, you have a new dining room table?  Did you eat your avocados at your dining room table? 

Nah, I've been in the habit of having no dining room table and plunking myself about the house to eat.  The perfect place to eat FOUR avocados?  Of course, you must drizzle them with lime infused olive oil and sprinkle them with black sea salt and then they must be eaten in the bathtub.

Oh my goodness golly.  Is this pure joy or what?
