Bobby and I spent this weekend up in Ithaca, NY for our college reunion. We didn’t stay in the dorms and go to all the CU Reunion events; we stayed at the Super 8 next to Wegmans with our best friends and we went to a few events that sounded fun (wine tasting!).
It all started Wednesday night…
We left work a little early Wednesday so that we could get to NJ in time to see my dad’s softball game (they lost, unfortunately, but it was to the best team in the league). After the game we went to pick up my Grammie’s car that we borrowed for the trip.

Day 15, Wednesday: A Day in the life (include photos from throughout your typical day).
Sometime between 7:30 – 8:15am – Wake up.
Make and drink coffee, read, do some cleaning. Sometimes I blog in the morning (like today).
This coffee has ground cardamom in it, Columbian-style. I went to Juan Valdez cafe a couple weeks ago and discovered this delicious trick.
If I have time, maybe I make lunch or do some food prepping. This morning I was up around 6:30, which is earlier than normal. I was able to make 2 different soups based on recipes in the Vegan with a Vengeance cookbook (carrot soup and butternut squash soup).
^^ Roasted Butternut Squash Soup – had it for breakfast! ^^
^^ Blending the carrot soup ^^
(Recipes for both to come.)

I just found out (via Jenny) about a blogging “challenge” that actually has nothing to do with food. The challenge? To blog every day in May. To be honest, I have felt uninspired by food lately (hence the lack of posts for about 2.5 weeks). So I think I am going to try this challenge, even though I am late to it.
The only rule is… there are no rules.
Today’s assignment is:
Day 6, Monday: If you couldn’t answer with your job, how would you answer the question, ‘what do you do’?
I build things. Sometimes the things I build are physical in nature; other times they are more intangible. I analyze and optimize. I teach. I lead trainings. Some things I made today:
- Scripts to get, parse, and store data
- Dinner (a breakfast burrito)
- My husband smile
Other things I did today:
