The country side is beautiful and the roads are clear! This is the first time the GPS actually took time off the ETA. It took only 1 hour and 40 minutes to get to NYC. Not bad considering it says at least 2 hours normally.
Our 8 mile run was a nice and easy pace to chat. I enjoy taking the time to be active and catch up on life. You can learn so much about a person and where they're coming from by taking the time to listen.
After the run we had some breakfast, chatted some more and then went for Sushi! I had been craving Sushi for weeks and really enjoyed it. I got the lunch special with an eel cucumber, avacado, and spicy tuna roll. Delicious.
I then headed to meet up with another friend to can some strawberry jam. I had never canned before and couldn't wait to see what it was all about. Slice strawberries, mash them up, put it in a pot, add some pectin, sugar (I used sugar in the raw), and add a little butter to keep the foam away. It ended up tasting wonderful! Plus I have plenty to give away in tiny jars. Might have to save them for the holidays.
After the jam we prepared a fresh pasta dinner with asparagus and snap peas. Heavenly...
After dinner I couldn't help myself and stopped off at Uncle Ed's Creamery and had a child size scoop of cherry vanilla and vanilla fudge. Yummie ice cream. So good. So tasty.
Time to rest - Tennis in the am.
