More Portuguese sweet bread baking (although this time I ditched the raisins and instead added lemon zest. It was fantastic! I made the muffins for a potluck this afternoon and as a dry-run for Thanksgiving.)

A bit of sewing too. Market bags and new fabric (bunkeys!) for a Christmas project.

What I didn’t manage to photograph was the 7-mile run Saturday morning that left me lame most of the weekend. It was the brutal reminder I needed to: get off the treadmill and back outside for longer runs, clean up my diet and get out of my exercise rut. I’ve got my workout clothes ready for a 5-miler tomorrow and hope to start increasing my mileage to 20-25 a week. When I’m running that much I find my mind is more focused, I’m more emotionally even and I am much happier with the way my jeans fit. With turkey day around the corner, my new found enthusiasm for my Nikes is perfectly timed.

Hope your weekend was also fabulous, but that it moved considerably slower than mine.

  1. I LOVE that stamp set you used!!!

  2. I need to spend a weekend with you. All I’ve done is watch reality shows and movies to the point where I’ve lost track of how many I’ve watched. I’m even watching one now.

  3. Thanks, it’s been a great weekend…I went running Saturday too and have the same thought – I like how my jeans fit now. πŸ™‚ Love that fabric.

  4. I love the monkey fabric. I don’t know how you find time to accomplish so much! I worked on a Christmas gift for my niece and started cleaning for house guests arriving tomorrow. And now it’s back to cleaning!

  5. I’m sure your projects will be just as thoughtful and lovely as always!

  6. Busy girl, as usual!
    What do you think of those stamps? I’m used to the ones on the wood bases. Of course if they’re good enough for Martha…

  7. Looking forward to seeing you on Saturday.

    Hmmm….I am impressed that I got my Christmas cards odered & picked up from Sam’s. πŸ˜‰

    Have a great Turkey Day!

  8. Love you holiday stamps! and the bread looks wonderful… yummy.

  9. Good luck on your run! The bread looks yummy, & yesterday seemed to drag on. I’m kind of glad it’s Monday.

  10. Bunkeys! πŸ™‚
    Those breads look yummy.

  11. Mmmm…more of that delicious bread! (You ran 7 miles?!?!)

  12. I love your blog and all, but I’m contemplating breaking up with it. It’s not you, it’s me. I get so jealous of all the things you have time to do! Although, I guess I could be more positive and aspire to accomplish as many things as you do. (-: That bread sure does look yummy.

  13. Love anything monkey…

  14. Not sure if you know, but while shopping black friday at Macy’s yesterday I was in the martha section and they have a whole place setting and accessories with your stamp images. I said, “whoa, thats that stamp.” very cute
