second breakfast + The Bag

I went for my first outside run last night, and took Dex dog with me. (He was immensely helpful on the hills. :) We went around the neighborhood--about 2 miles, calculated on Google maps!--and I am feelin' it today. I forgot how difficult running outside is compared to the treadmill.

I woke up starving, so I made some peanut butter toast...I'm also looking forward to having some oatmeal with pepitas (punkin seeds), brown sugar, and cinnamon! I'll eat this around 10 AM or so at work. (Did you know that 1 tsp of cinnamon = the same amount of antioxidants in 1/4 cup of blueberries?) I completely appreciate the concept of 2nd breakfast (thanks, Tolkien)--I don't think I could wait until lunch otherwise!

Here's the latest update on The Bag:

I've sewn the bottom on, and sewed the lining... now I need to figure out how to put it all together. I have a feeling I will be unstitching the lining--boo--but I didn't understand the pattern, and Mom and I kind of thought we could figure it out on our own. We'll see; I'm hoping to work on it tonight.

Happy Friday to you! Be well!

your bag is looking great--so properly done. i can't wait to see it finished--what do you planning on using it for? library books? knitting? work? ps i love second breakfast but second breakfast is also known as breakfast dessert to me which is probably less healthy than oatmeal!
