I finally worked again! Taught swim conditioning class in the morning and had a blast doing so. It is amazing how you forget how much you love doing something until you don't do it for awhile. Then it was off to run with the tri group around greenlake. Once again an adventure. We ran in the bike path, dodged cars, stomped on puddles and snow embankments, and only had one near fall via Karissa. Which happened, not because of the conditions, but because my mouth was running and she was trying to listen, good thing she does pilates twice weekly as she recovered from a near face plant like a gymnast on a regaining control on a balance beam.
Arriving 15 minutes late, Shawn was already out the door upon realizing that they would need more pizza sauce to cater to his famished guests. So two pizzas it was going to be cooking.
(Mark added the seasonings to the side to demonstrate the ginourmousness of this pie- I claim the size is due to the massive amounts of veggies, however, he claims it is cheese...he is probably right)
Mark thought it was a sound he is all too familiar with-the sound of a champagne cork opening.
I thought it sounded like when the oven is preheating and you hear a bang because the broiler pan was left in the oven, of course, with the crusts form pizza rolls still on it. (Tell me someone else experiences that:))
Natalie some how avoided thinking it was anything, until we all walked over there and saw this:
We proceeded downstairs to use the community oven and baked away.
Then the night went on and we all could not get enough attention from her beautiful cat Natasha (18 years old). If I didn't already have two I would have kid napped her in my back pocket, she has to weigh no more than 5 lbs.
(Mark believing he is the most loved by Natasha-sucka!)
(Natasha has had enough- pizza, attention, and crazy people)
As usual we extended our stay past midnight...we have a running problem with that...maybe we will make that a news year resolution. But Natalie and Shawn we had a great time with you guys....looking forward to more pizza, more natasha, more laughs and more ovens!
