Enjoying the Spring

Happy Monday!  It has been over a week since my last blog, wow!  It is so busy right now at school.  The end of the semester is always the hardest time and now that I have joined a research group, the workload is even heavier.  On the scale of priorities, writing a blog post isn’t always very high.  Anyway!

Some little updates, my April challenge is going pretty well but I have to admit that I missed some workouts last week.  Homework has been taking a higher ranking that fitness so it is what it is.  I have been trying to get steps in when I can (and when my foot isn’t hurting).

This past weekend, I also made sure to get some relaxation in while it was gorgeous outside!  I also got a ton of housework and homework done.  We took a break on Sunday to spend a few hours in Philly.  We met friends from my graduate program for dim sum in Chinatown in Philly.

Then we walked over to Reading Terminal Market to shop around and get some smoked kielbasi for Easter this weekend.  It is always a shame going there when you aren’t hungry!  So much amazing food!  I did get some iced coffee and we found some smoked sausages at a German meat market so a minor success.  The Amish markets aren’t open on Sundays though so that is always a bummer.

On our way home from the city, we stopped for groceries at our local produce outlet and they had lots of plants for cheap!  I picked up some herbs and 4 tomato plants so our garden is starting to look happy again!

That is all that is really going on right now.  I’m sorry I don’t have better, more frequent posts right now.  I have some planned but they take time to research and write, and I just don’t have time to give right now!  And now I must be off for a class lecture about our Master’s project that we’re doing next year.  The class at 1, a short break, and another class in the evening before heading back home on the 7:12 train.  I left my house at 6:35 this morning.  What an exciting life I lead! 

Have you been enjoying nice weather lately?  What do you do to get outside?
