This morning while out on my run I came across a fox! I immediately turned around and ran the other way. I know people say wild life are often more afraid of you then you are of them but I will admit I do not want any trouble with a fox! Also now that I seen that fox I will have the song what does the fox say in my head all day. I love that song it seriously puts a smile on my face. When it first came out my kids and I would have an intense dance party every time we played it.
I'm honestly wondering what type of wildlife I will run into while out on my nigh time run at Ragnar. I have not ever ran in the dark yet and I'm starting to think Ragar will be my first time. I will keep everyone posted.
Friday was my daughters last day at her first daycare. We loved it there very much so I wanted to bake something to send in as a treat. My daughter is obsessed with oatmeal and raisins so I decided on Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Bars. I adapted this recipe from One Ordinary Days Oatmeal Cookie Bar. They turned out great. I hope all of her friends at school enjoyed them as much as she did.
