Day 333

Today made for a good end to the weekend! I started my morning by video chatting with the BAKErs, my best friend circle from high school, which is always a treat. I have noticed that many of my Facebook friends are using their newly-discovered time at home to stay connected (or reconnect!) with friends, and I must say I think that's a silver lining to all of this.

Last weekend when I made macarons, I only used the whites of eggs. Not wanting to waste the perfectly good cooking materials, I did a Google search to see what I could do with my egg yolks. There were several options, but I settled on lemon curd because my friend Mary Bess used to make delicious lemon curd. The situation quickly escalated into an If You Give a Mouse a Cookie or If You Give a Moose a Muffin situation where I had to buy or make other things to use the yolks. Really just lemons, though. Then this morning, I made scones to go with the lemon curd (another famous Mary Bess goodie!), and Richard and I loved them!

This afternoon, I went for a long run--6 miles with Ken through and around LSU, then 7.1 miles on my own on the levee. I ran out of fluids around mile 10, which was less than ideal. I have clearly forgotten how much I need to drink once it warms up, and it's only March! At least I remembered my sunscreen. 

Tonight, Richard and I picked up crawfish for dinner. This is the second time we've picked up crawfish in a week, which is quite the change after not eating boiled crawfish at all in 2019. I'm not complaining about this tradition.

Tomorrow, it's back to work, but I am ready for the week. It's going to be weird having class again, but I think the added time constraints will put some additional structure in my least that's what I'm telling myself as I optimistically head into this week!

Something that made today great: Enjoying delicious food with my best husband
Time I woke up: 8:45 am
