I went for a little run this morning in Aruba and here’s what I ran by.

Aruba street and palm treesIt was nice to be able to run with some sun out because since we arrived here on late Saturday afternoon, it had been raining steadily throughout Saturday night and pretty much all day on Sunday.

Lots of standing water and puddles but they seem to be drying out.

Sandy shores and landscape

If you can’t get into your Zen groove while running next to this, you never will.

No iPod required.

Enjoy the tranquility.

Blue skies and sea shore

This is my happy place especially when it’s sunny.

The water really is this color.  A perfect shade of turquoise-aqua.

The rain that we had here wasn’t all bad though because I put some of this white chocolate that I brought with me to use.

Bags of white chocolate chips

While I played in the big girl kitchen, Skylar played with her toys.  Maybe Santa will bring her one of these play kitchen sets.

White chocolate recipe coming soon.

Along the lines of White Chocolate Cookies & Cream Fudge

White Chocolate Cookies & Cream FudgeBetter plan for a few longer runs based on the ingredient list.  And worth every bite.

So were the Baked Eggnog Vanilla Donuts with Eggnog Rum Glaze

Baked Eggnog Vanilla Donuts with Eggnog Rum GlazeThey made it which made me happy than the donuts themselves.  Almost.

And now for some fun stuff.  Paying my property taxes at the bank.

Questions:

1. What have you been running by?

Snow?  Holiday shoppers at the mall?  Running by a big sink full of dishes from all that holiday baking you did this weekend?   Do tell.

Hopefully you ran by some downtime and chill time over the weekend.

2. Best thing you ate or did over the weekend?

For me, just getting to Aruba was pretty much the best.  And being with my family.

Have a great day!
