Mud, Running, New Baby, New Toy, lots of Motivation

I know we lost an hour yesterday, but for some reason the day seemed to drag on forever, maybe because I was so tired from losing an hour of sleep, or my daughter's coughing all night.  I did get out for a great 10k run yesterday.  It was windy up on top by my house so I drove down the hill and ran by my parent's house.  I hadn't run that route in a while anyway. It was good to get in some variation and lots of hills!

The main road wasn't bad. but all the smaller field roads are muddy.  I can't wait to get off the main roads and run again. I also can't wait for spring and green. The world seems so tones of brown and snow right now.
brown brown brown!
The creek had run over the road in one spot, with all the higher temps this week there has been a lot of snow melting, and we had a lot of snow to melt!
Love this picture of my two little munchkins.
Seriously what is cute than a little white face baby.  They are called baldies.  This little black baldy was only hours old here.

and I got a new toy this weekend.  I have wanted one of these for a long time so when my sister in law said she was getting rid of hers for a deal I said yes please!  I did it for 10 minutes yesterday, I forgot what a great workout a rowing machine is.
Not sure my husband is as excited about another piece of exercise equipment in the house as I am. The kids are pretty sure it's fun to play on though.

Sadly I think it is supposed to rain and then snow today and tomorrow.  Moisture is good though so I am not going to complain too much. Lots of rain and snow will mean lots of green grass and flowers soon.


  1. I was thinking about going outside to run today (I actually did 4 runs outside last week!), but then I looked and it was snowing and really windy. I guess I'll hit the treadmill instead.

    You're close to having a serious home gym going on over there!

  2. Were calving to and the little calves are so cute. That rowing machine is awesome. The two little ones walking together is precious .My hubby looks at me weird when I want another exercise equipment. Like don't you have enough. Never

  3. It is super muddy here too right now.

  4. We still have large snow piles, at least they are melting now! That rowing machine does look pretty sweet.

  5. Congrats on the new baby and the rowing machine. Definitely an exciting weekend!

  6. Ooooh love me some rowing action! I'm surprised how almost snow free you are. We've got a looong way to go to see grass of any kind, plus more snow tomorrow.

  7. That rowing machine kills me! Every time I've tried it at the gym I last approximately 14 seconds. That is such a cute pic of the kids!

  8. I would love to have a rowing machine. Great exercise! Baby cow so cute :)

    Love that pic of your kids too. The bright colors against the muted background is really cool


Because I love hearing from you all!
