Music, Mindy, and moving (as in exercise, we still live here)

Check out this new phone case I order from Andrea’s Etsy Shop:

I am obviously stoked about it seeing as it has two of my favorite things in the whole world: cats and books. Obviously.

Also, guys, I must recommend two albums for you to purchase. Before I make these recommendations, please know that I am making them as a regular person with no musical background whatsoever besides the listening skill. Now, if you want to read a music review I did when I actually was somebody (a.k.a. an editor at my college newspaper and the biggest John Mayer fan in the world (I’ve been to five concerts, then you can click here, because for some reason some of those articles are still on the Internet)).

Good stuff, y’all. Oh, and Mindy’s new show is on tonight, and we all know how much I LOVE her. Too much probably. Just kidding, probably not.

Tonight I made those spicy black bean stuffed peppers again, because I sort of loved them the first time, and didn’t want to wait any longer to eat them all up again. But I also completed my 3rd of 4 scheduled runs for my first week of half-marathon training, which started Sunday. I am using this 10-week plan to train for a race in December, only I’ve already broken it, because I have run three consecutive days, which it specifically says not to do. But the weather has been so fab this week, I couldn’t resist. Anyway, today I ran three miles in 31 minutes and 32 seconds, which is not fast by anyone’s standards, but it’s fast for me, because I have been running three miles in 36 minutes for the past year and a half or so, and it has been a goal of mine these past few months to get it closer to 30 minutes. So, I’m stoked.

I’ll spare you a picture of Lucy and Molly tonight, because they’re exhibiting surprisingly normal feline behavior tonight (sleeping) and not doing anything entertaining enough to be featured in tonight’s post. But I assure you, they will make another appearance soon.
