Today was gloriously HOT out…. 39*C (not sure what that is in F) and just the kind of weather I wait for each year. So it felt a little odd taking DS to hockey camp this morning! Before we left I made a bowl of oat bran;
- 1 cup water
- 1/3 cup oat bran
- almond butter
A purdy little feast!!
I had to have the boy dropped off for 8:30am so I went into work for 9. That seems so late after starting at 8 all summer! Before I knew it, it was almost gym time so I broke into a Peanut Butter cookie Luna bar that I picked up at TJ’s.
I don’t normally buy Luna bars because I’m not a fan, but I couldn’t resist a few flavours that I haven’t tried before. This one was actually pretty good! It kinda reminded me of a PB flavoured rice crispy square.
I’ve got a few sore spots from weeding yesterday so I set the treadmill to 6mph and ran a leisurely few miles. It actually felt really good to stretch everything out without using too much exertion!

I was good and hungry by the time I settled back at my desk so I dove into my lunch. First up was the last of the beer butt chicken, the last of the raw marinara sauce and 6 chopped up black olives. I guess you could call this a salad of sorts;
I’ll be visiting this vendor again on Saturday. These were some of the best beets I’ve ever had.
After work I went back to the rink to pick my boy up. I was hoping he’d be beat out, but not so much! He was so hyper!! You’d of thought that 3hrs of ice time as well as other activities would tucker him out. Ah, to be young again!
I used the “too hot to cook” excuse and stopped by the grocery store for buns and sandwich fixings for a cool, easy supper. My multi grain bun sported a slice of deli ham, mortadella, swiss cheese, mayo, chipotle mustard and lettuce. On the side was cherry tomatoes, honeydew and cantaloupe;
I’ve spent most of the evening on the deck with my book which I will be returning to after finishing up here. Then I have lunches to make for tomorrow for me and DS. I’m looking forward to tomorrow because my bestie is down from Windsor armed with her bootcamp notes so she’ll be hitting the gym with my after work! YAY! Enjoy the rest of your night!
Bye for now!!
