As far as cooking endeavors go this week, I have cooked up all kinds of yummy stuff! Once I got back in the saddle, I just felt like cooking (and writing) a lot so the family is happy to have had real food every single night this week!
However, I recently experienced a situation when chasing squirrels was not quite so fun; that instance was when it was a literal interpretation of the "chasing squirrels" phrase and I found myself at the wrong end of a leash being dragged by an energetic dog with a hell of a lot more strength and ambition than I had at the particular moment... chasing a fuc*ing squirrel. Like a furry rodent, not an crazy idea. In that instance, I don't really like squirrel chasing at all. So the take home lesson from this experience was: don't volunteer to walk my friend's dog unless I want to experience breathtaking, back breaking, rodent style, squirrel chasing.
PS The silver lining to this one was that I ran my fastest (so far) 5K time 24:02. Next time I chase squirrels I hope to break into the 23 minute time frame!
