October 16th

Started the morning with a run at 8 and it was chilly but nice. I got really nauseous on the run and I think that I am going to have to give up on morning runs. The past few that I have gone on end up with me not feeling very well and I don’t think that it is worth it especially if I am able to run in the afternoon with no problem. I enjoy running, but with me not having a goal to work towards, I will admit, it has kind of fallen to the back burner. There is still plenty of walking that is going on so I am still getting exercise, just not as much as I was before. I came back, had the rest of my yogurt and jelly, had some coffee, and got ready for church.

The Padre of San Carlo came up to me and asked if I would like to do a reading and as I responded in Italian, his smile slowly faded as he realized I am not very good at speaking Italian. He smiled, mumbled something, and then walked away. It would have been cool to say that I had done a reading, but I think it was in the best interest of everyone that I did not. Mass was good and went by quickly then Courtney and I went to the super market because we were out of food. I bought fun cheese and wine for the first time and I am excited to try them. Courtney and I have decided to do a chicken and pineapple fried rice, very Italian, so we split up the ingredients and purchased what we needed to.
Lunch was goat cheese, salami, and arugula sandwich that I tried the other day at the panino shop. It was delicious! The cheese wasn’t goat cheese, it was far less pungent, but it still tasted very good. I am happy with my fun cheese purchase.

I spent the rest of the afternoon doing homework and preparing dinner. I cooked the chicken and then chopped onions and garlic. For dinner, we mad the fried rice with chicken, pineapple, onion, garlic, and rice. It was really good and we will have enough leftovers for part of the week.
I finished the night with putting the finishing touches on my projects due Monday and went to bed rather late. Maybe one day I will learn to not procrastinate.

Con amore, Ciao!
