I honestly don’t know what it was about this year, but October seemed to be so short. Not that I am disappointed though. October treated us very well. My new job is going splendid. I spent some time the other day eating lunch outside and it’s so enjoyable to be on a beautiful campus.
I will try and take more photos. One photo doesn’t so enough justice to how beautiful the Tempe campus of ASU. I can also say that the other campuses I’ve visited are equally nice in their own way. I had the opportunity on Friday to visit the west campus to visit with our counterparts there and check out the fitness center. I would be so happy to use the treadmills and look out at a mountain view! My husband and I have also driven around on the polytechnic campus to check out the family housing.
I can’t remember if I mentioned beforehand but the family housing on ASU’s polytechnic campus is old base housing and some of the dorms there are also old military barracks.
I am eager for all the good things that November brings. Today I got the wonderful surprise of finding gluten free ladyfingers. The Gluten Free Country Store in Gilbert had them (and tons of other great finds) and I wasn’t sure I’d be able to make a gluten free version of chocolate pumpkin tiramisu for Thanksgiving this year. I also plan on making a cranberry streusel bar recipe I found in one of the recent copies of Every Day with Rachel Ray magazine.
Oh and I’m back on trying to make a number of healthier meals for the week. I have to keep in mind that come February we are doing a Spartan Sprint and I don’t want to be terribly out of shape for the race.
