Third Time’s The Charm

After a 4.5-hour drive of fog, rain, ice, and SNOW…home has never felt so good! I mentioned yesterday that I was a bit anxious about the weather forecast for today and driving “over the hill(s) and through the woods”. I had the right to be anxious alright. Let’s just say it was one white-knuckled drive. I thought it was Spring Break, no? Well, I guess since it’s technically still Winter, it means that Mother Nature is allowed to SNOW! It honestly took me a minute or two to realize the sticky raindrops on my windshield were in fact snowflakes, as I can’t remember ever seeing snow fall [true story]. I know this can’t be entirely true because I have been in snowy weather various times – I’ve even been snowboarding – but I am a California girl…what can I say?

Of course now I wish I had stopped to take a few photos of my drive through Winter Wonderland, but at the time, all I could do was concentrate on keeping Little Blue on all fours.

I relaxed with an extra long, hot shower as soon as I got home before getting ready to go out to sushi with the ‘rents. Sushi, oh how I’ve missed you.

Press Rewind.

I woke up at the [butt] crack of dawn today – 6:00am – in order to get everything packed, top of my tank, grab a ‘Bucks, and get to O. Chem on time. Since Operation Empty Fridge was in effect, I decided to utilize every last bit of my $6 jar of PB by making OIAJ [Oats in a Jar]. I’ve claimed that I do not like nut butters in my oatmeal, but I just may have to take that back. I believe today was Trial #3 for OIAJ, and I think I hit the jackpot!





Humboldt Honey OIAJ

1 cup water

1/2 cup rolled oats

1/2 T ground flax

1/2 banana – cooked

PB&Co Bee’s Knees

splash of 1% milk


I’d love to stay and chat, but I have a long appointment with the pavement in the morning. Come back tomorrow for a RACE UPDATE…
