Currently {July 2015}

Cherishing: Parenthood sure has a way of showing you exactly where there's a need for personal growth...!  And, to be quite honest, during the past few months I've learned that, in my case, there's lots and lots of room for improvement.  I'm sure that raising two little people will be a never-ending learning curve, but I'm really trying to, amidst all the learning and growing on both the parent- and kiddo-side, just cherish what we have right now.  We're in such a delightful phase: Miss K (3) is the wisest, wittiest little thing and Brother J (1) is having a blast with his new-found sense of humour.  I'm in heaven!



              
Devouring: I'm not really a cookie person, but man these are good!  Chocolatey and chewy and healthy leaning towards the healthy side...  I just can't stop!


  
Running: Things are finally returning back to normal after my 18-day flu lay-off.  I'm almost back to my pre-flu running tempo and even clocked a (hard, but heavenly!) long run last weekend.  I'm very excited to start putting in some hard work for October's race - perhaps I should try the half-marathon...?      



Watching: We don't watch a whole lot of television, and when we do, it's usually something on Cbeebies with the kids.  But on Sunday nights I make an exception for... The Amazing Race!  That show was made for me and soothes my wanderlust just a tiny little bit...  Can you imagine the adventure?!  If ever there's an SA version (yeah right, right?), I'll be the first to enter.
   
Happy weekend, everyone!

    1. Wouldn't it be awesome, Hailey?? The other contestants will probably make fun of me, 'cause I'd giggle and be in awe the entire time, haha!

      Ooooooh, Miss K just LOVES her ballet! She's always fluttering around the house like a little butterfly, singing and dancing all the time! :)

  2. Now I am living that phase with my grandsons but, of course, with my children it was a different experience.
    Glad you can run as fast as before. Here it's hard now because the hot weather.

    1. We're actually having a lovely winter, Stefano - apart from a week or so of below zero temperatures that we had, our days are lovely and mild. Perfect for running! :)

    1. Ugh, Lisa, the "getting back into it" is always hard and always the same, haha! But once it's done, the satisfaction is always gooooooood :) .
