First of all, Happy New Year’s Eve to you all!  I hope you have fun plans for tonight.

I feel like I haven’t been on the internet in weeks, but it’s only been one day <— Goal #13 accomplished!

In that one day, a few other things have happened.  None of which you’re probably interested in but you’ll hear about them anyways.

I FINALLY finished Gone with the Wind <— Goal #2 accomplished!  If you enjoy character development and have some free time on your hands I suggest you read it.  It has a lot more going on in terms of plot than in the movie.

You may also be surprised to learn that I started my yoga challenge (7-days of yoga class at CorePower Yoga) and two days in I am already SO sore.  My arms, hamstrings, quads and hips are all feeling it and it hurts sooo good.

I’m hoping the weather doesn’t stop Beanie and I from going today!!

Yes, it finally snowed.

There’s nothing prettier than a college campus all dressed up in snow.

By the way do you see that statue of a man sitting on a bench on the left?  I think it’s a real person every time I walk by.

Hello, library.

Unfortunately my attitude while taking these pictures was not pretty.  I had just spent the past hour trying to make it to work (public transportation sucks in the snow) and just as I was getting off the bus, my boss called to tell me the library was closing early and I need not come in.

I’m still fuming.

I could have had such a relaxing morning, but instead I rushed to an early morning yoga class, took forever to drive home in the snow, rushed through my shower and scarfed down this bowl of oatmeal at a dangerously fast pace.

Topped with my new almond butter (roasted maple cinnamon) and I’ve decided it tastes like cookie dough.

Clearly, I still felt like I had all the time in the world to photograph/admire my breakfast.

I also found time to photograph the stew I made on Wednesday.  Recipe can be found here.

I was skeptical — pumpkin puree and apples?  But it was good!  Just wish I could have tasted the apples a bit more.  Maybe I’ll add those in later next time I make this.

Nothing like stew when it’s snowing.

Even though I was rushed and annoyed yesterday, at least my feet were warm.

Smart Wool = awesome.

Pictures of my feet?  Do I know how to end a post with a bang or what?

I’m off to enjoy breakfast and maybe a little reading (I’m on the Pride and Prejudice now) while everyone is still sleeping but then I fully plan on taking advantage of this day off.

Have a safe but fun New Year’s Eve!
