So it looks like I've become a sporadic blogger. I start each day with good intentions but truth be told - I'm busy these days and something has to give. Truly sorry about this.
Currently relaxing in Trexlertown, PA getting ready for the first cyclocross race of the season. Looking forward to racing and having some fun on my bike. Also will be good to connect with my pals from Belgium and England who have come over for some North American racing.
This week I had a blast shopping! Yes, I ordered and received my new Lole clothes. Many thanks to Lole for the amazing support this cyclocross season. My package of clothes arrived just as we were leaving so I didn't even have a chance to open the package - but let me tell you - as soon as I get home I'll be opening up that yellow package of goodies!
We had a pretty relaxed evening and easy drive down. We're not so sure about the drive home though since the Binghamton, NY area is flooded and we fear the 81 North will still be closed on Sunday... But we'll deal with this on Sunday.
I've been chilling out with the television - Food Network to be specific! What strikes me the most now that we don't have television (apart from downloaded programs) are the commercials. I'm shocked by some of the new products out there and just the obtrusive nature of the commercials.
I bought something very cool at the Wegman's: Powdered Peanut Butter. I've read about this amazing product on many food blogs - basically peanut flower that you mix with water to make your own peanut butter. You can also bake with it and add it to smoothies. It is lower fat than regular peanut butter and more cost-effective. (I think we might need to return to Wegman's tomorrow so I can buy another jar...)
Alright, I'm going to sign off. Check out my other site http://ottawa.cx tomorrow for a race report. (Oh and if you're in Ottawa, be sure to buy the Ottawa Citizen and look for an article and photo of me on the Active Living page...)
