The Apple Battle is Won

We are back in business.


It is quite evident that Fairway noticed my complete boycott of their market and finally caved in.

I am sure that sales had dipped; especially in the area of Granny Smith apples.

And it appears that Fairway is so concerned that I won’t return that they have also placed Ezekiel bread on sale this week in order to sweeten the deal.


I may not win the battle this summer with the ice cream man and his song singing truck, but I won this battle. And this is a MUCH bigger market win.

Speaking of the ice cream man, the boy informed me that my container of Breyer’s Cookies and Cream ice cream is no match for the Mr. Softee Truck, no matter what topping I offer to include.

I am just realizing that we never discussed my return to Spin Tuesday. Please forgive me . I have been a little preoccupied with my chocolate dipped fruit consumption.


No, spin was not held outside. Would you believe that as I got in the line to wait to enter the class, the fire alarms started blaring?

Oh yes. Building evacuated.


I still don’t even know why it happened. All I know is that we were outside for over half an hour.


Eventually we were allowed back inside but it took another 20 something minutes for the music to work (along with the air conditioning).

Would you believe me if I said the alarms sounded again 10 minutes into the class? Oh yes.

At that point I gave up on spin. Even though they told us we didn’t need to evacuate, the music was off once again in the spin room so I just elected to finish my mish moshed of a workout on the elliptical machine.

There is always next Tuesday. There is a spin class I like this morning but I ran a crazy amount in the last several days (30 miles I believe in 5 days) therefore I am going to do an easy elliptical workout/strength train at Lifetime instead.


I am still loving this  eCard. It is so me. Of course I plan on getting up tomorrow for my long run. Another reason I intend to not overdo it today.

There is a crazy amount of rain expected today into tomorrow due to Tropical Storm Andrea. I sure hope it stops early enough tomorrow to not ruin the day (or my long run).


This week felt rather endless, didn’t it?

What are your plans for the weekend? In the summer months, I try not to over plan my weekends and base everything around the weather. I am hopeful for the sunshine and relaxing with my friends by the pool.

Have a great weekend!

    Hahaha, I’m so happy all your stuff is back in the store! I can’t say much about granny applie (I am a Fuji apple girl) but yay for you getting them back! Maybe now you can bake me an apple pie and ship it down here. do I beg for food from other bloggers too much? yes. Am i lazy and do i possess 0 baking skills? yes. Ecard is the best! And yes, this week has gone by so slowly and has been one b***h of a week. Ugh. Thrilled it’s almost over. Have a great weekend too lovely!

    Yay for your apples coming back! That’s so annoying about the fire alarms though- that happens in the building I live in sometimes and it drives me crazy.
    I will be camping and mountain biking this weekend 🙂 Have a good one!
