The last 2 days have been cold and wet and I've been in a bit of a mood because of some family things and a pain down my right leg, again! I'm looking forward to a nice run and some weights and if I'm really good I'll try to fit in the ab work for my exercise challenge.
I have to do some baking this week for a church function this Sunday. Yesterday I made these chunky peanut chocolate chip cookies and wasn't tempted at all (helps that I'm not a huge peanut butter fan). Today I'll be making some cream cheese cinnamon rolls (much more my kind of thing) but should do well because they'll be frozen and baked on Saturday. I'm also making some chocolate orange cupcakes (love that combination) and lime meltaways. I've never tried either of these but they sound yummy!
My week has been pretty good. I'm almost at 15 pounds and I have met the mini goal of being at the weight I was when I left Chrysler last summer. I hope that I can post a new badge next week!
Today's pictures are from Venice. I was there 2 years ago just this month travelling with my cousin and I have to say it is one of my favourite vacations EVER! I loved Italy and Venice was our last stop. It was already getting hot at the end of May so I'm glad we went when we did.
The first picture is of the magnificent St. Mark's Cathedral and the second is a shot of the famous gondolas. I had heard some negative things about Venice (it's dirty, it smells, etc.) Well, not when we were there. It was just like I imagined it to be and more. I felt as though we were in the scene of a movie.
History, architecture, romance--it's all there and I highly recommend Italy as a vacation destination and if I have the opportunity I would love to go again.
I hope everyone has a great week and enjoys today! I will--it's sunny out today!
