What I Have Been Up To?

Sorry I haven't been blogging lately.
Ths past weekend, I really wanted to get onto some holiday baking. But before I got started on baking, I decided I wanted to consolidate all the baking stuff and make a baking station in the kitchen.
It took me a whole day + a little bit.
It involved a lot of pouring stuff out and washing the containers, finding all the containers with blue lids, and pour stuff back, making labels.
Now all of the baking stuff are placed on this pantry cabinet thingy.

Top row (from left): rock sugar, Splenda, sugar, brown sugar, powdered sugar, Splenda brown sugar blend, and baking soda.
Basket Row (from left): fruits, breakfast, tea and cookbooks.
The shelf below is actually a top where I prepare my tea.
The flour, boxed cake mix, mixing bowls, measuring cups are in the cabinet.

I haven't wrote about this
but last week, I got a really sweet thoughtful gift from Christine over at Dream Big Runner.
Along with the book was a very red sparkly Santa card.

I haven't ran much because I wasn't home at all.
I made a road trip to Louisiana to see my friends, favorite professors, and a former grad school classmate who happened to be in town from Tennessee for Christmas.
Lots of coffee, driving, and catching up but it was all wonderful.
I ended up spending a night at a friend's house because she fed me such delicious rice and curry
and I just cannot stay awake after that meal.
When I got home on Tuesday, I pretty much packed and left on a delivery trip with my boyfriend.
And now, I am home.
I will be running with my running friend tomorrow.
Running will resume tomorrow. 
Now, gotto go sleep!!
