Foam Roller is Killing Me

I woke up surprisingly sore from yesterday’s run! It’s been ages since I was sore from a run, honestly I’m baffled. Perhaps it’s because I hadn’t run for a week? I was so busy biking, swimming and doing other things.

Last night I did the Foam Roller on my quads, shins, and IT Band. Oooof does that hurt! πŸ™ But it helps. I did the Foam Roller again this morning when I woke up.

Michael and I went to a friend’s house for dinner last night. It was wonderful! They picked up pizza and she made a fantastic salad all from their garden. I ate three tiny pieces of pizza from the miniature pizza they got (they also got a regular sized pepperoni pizza) and 2 Mirror Pond Pale Ales.

Their garden is really impressive. They have rows and rows of veggies in raised beds. I got one picture but it was rather dark.

They sent us home with tons of fresh lettuce and spinach! I can’t wait to eat it.

Lettuce

The bag is so big, our fridge is full. πŸ™‚

They also have their own chickens! They get fresh eggs daily. She sent us home with a bunch!

Fresh Eggs

I grew up getting fresh eggs from aunts that had farms and love fresh eggs! Michael and I have been warming up to the idea of someday having our own chickens. According to various friends that have a chicken coop, they say it’s really easy and low maintenance.

Our friend is pregnant so after dinner she decided she wanted ice cream. It was rather humorous! She got fixated on going to Dairy Queen. I got out my iphone but it didn’t have any Dairy Queens nearby. We went to Burgerville instead. Everyone else got a shake of some sort (I’ve previously discussed their awesome shakes). I ordered their vanilla ice cream cone. Supposedly it’s 250 calories. I am skeptical!

Ice Cream

It was absolutely heavenly! It was thick and creamy and tasted like butter. πŸ™‚

QUESTION: Are you good at gardening? Do you compost or have a chicken coop?
