This morning started a few hours earlier than yesterday. I woke up at about 9 and realized that once again it hadn’t snowed overnight.
Such a bummer… but anyways, I got a mug of coffee and threw together a random breakfast of multigrain cheerios, cinnamon toast crunch, and crunchy peanut butter. A bit later, my mom made a big bowl of oatmeal and toasted a few cinnamon raisin bagels for the rest of the family. I kind of wish I waited for the family breakfast… oh well.
Rather than driving 45 minutes to Yosemite Valley, we decided to hike around our neighborhood by Pine Mountain Lake. It was much warmer hiking today and we didn’t definitely didn’t need to use the showshoes like yesterday.
Our house doesn’t have a direct view of the lake, but we were lucky to get a good look on our hike.
The weather was surprisingly warm and there were blue skies all around. Today I didn’t even need gloves, a scarf, or a hat!
I’m convinced that my mom bought me a camera so I can take photos of her and her fiance….. (I’m onto you, Mom!!!)
After two miles, we reached a bend in the creek and a horrid skunk smell. We took that as a sign to turn back around and hike home.
Back at the cabin, we packed up our bags, locked up the car, and started our trip back to San Jose. Before hitting the road though, we stopped at Two Guys Pizza Pies for lunch. My mom and I each took a trip to the salad bar, but made sure to enjoy some pizza as well. Their veggie lovers pizza is so delicious (MINUS the olives).
Now we are back in San Jose and it’s time for me to do some laundry, run by the mall, and figure out what in the heck I am going to do on New Year’s Eve! It’s one of those annoying holidays where everyone over-thinks their plans, and then everyone ends up doing something they didn’t want to do. Just my friends and me? Oh well.
Question: What’s your favorite type of pizza? Are you a thin crust, thick crust, or deep dish kind of person?
