Happy almost Friday (thank goodness).
What a week it's been. A cold one, at that. This weather has been messing with us quite a bit here in Michigan. Although we had two nice Saturdays in a row, one with temperatures in the high 50s/low 60s and one in the mid 40s, Tuesday morning was sub-zero, and temperatures for the past few days have been topping out in the teens. Thankfully this weekend will be back in the thirties (I can't believe I'm saying that). But next Tuesday reads 52 degrees and thunderstorms...? I can't keep up.
On Sunday, I rekindled my love for Noodles & Co.'s Pasta Fresca after a nasty bloodsugar crash (that could have easily been avoided, of course). I used to eat at this place all the time in high school, but I don't think I've ever tried any of their other pastas. I really wonder if I'm the only one who puts Soy Sauce all over my Pasta Fresca (with extra Parmesan cheese and Parmesan chicken). I wish I could remember what made me come up with this idea... but it's delicious!
Yesterday was calm. Work was normal, leftover steak from the night before for lunch was delicious (although in combination with the exhaustion from the day before, it induced quite the food coma), and getting home to no plans and no need to rush around was awesome. We went to our favorite spot, had a couple drinks with a friend, and ended the night with working power and heat.
It's now almost the weekend. Although it will still be cold, Geocaching is on my list of things to do. Also on my list is art journaling! I stumbled upon art journaling through a few blogs I was checking out earlier this week and fell in love with the idea. What a great way to use the photos we take almost everyday.
I'd really like to make it to the museum to see that Lego exhibit I've been planning to see for the past couple weeks, but this is going on until some time in February. The Fire and Ice Show is this weekend in Downtown Rochester; for any of you that might be in Southeast Michigan, the list of activities is here. Frankenmuth's Snowfest is this weekend, too! If I weren't so clumsy, I'd definitely go to the ice skating rink in Detroit.
I know winter is cold and dreary, and a lot of the time you'd really like to keep cooped up in your warm, comfortable homes, but do a quick search on the internet for events going on in your area. There might be a few annual festivals close to you that really help you to appreciate the coldest months of the year!
Any plans for the weekend?
