1. To my own amazement, I won a contest from Artizone for $150 in store credit. In addition to hand-delivering my gift cards, last night a friendly delivery guy came by with a giant bag of fresh produce to boot. I got one pound of strawberries, pears, apples, kiwis, broccoli and golden beets. Not sure what to do with the beets, but I'm super impressed by the hospitality.
2. Katie, one of the runners that I met when I ran my marathon PR in Vermont with #CabotFit, just launched an amazing cookbook featuring all things maple syrup. Maple is beautiful and features both sweet and savory iterations highlighting all the glories that is maple. I'm so impressed and can't wait to get cooking. I want to be Katie when I grow up.
3. It's true - Poley is a senior citizen. He had his first senior wellness check up Monday and passed, with clean teeth, strong lungs and happy joints. Basically, he's a rock star dog that will live to chase another squirrel for at least another decade, I hope.
