A Free Friday

Now that it’s Friday, I can say that the week went fast. And I’m so glad the work week is done because there is nothing on the agenda for tonight except catching up on the magazine’s that have piled up on my table. So let’s get with the eats, shall we? :D GEDC7457

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup Quaker oats
  • cinnamon
  • crushed pineapple
  • Sahale walnut snack mix GEDC7455

Here are some snacks that I enjoyed today… GEDC7464 GEDC7459 GEDC7460 GEDC7461

The pineapple flax muffins turned out perfectly. They’re nice and big and filling…healthy, too!

I got all set to go to the gym today and had just started on the elliptical when a co worker came to get me because the school had called that DS needed his inhaler. CRAP! So off I went to the school. Thankfully my office, house and school are all on the same route so I was there pretty quick. DS doesn’t have asthma in the “traditional” sense. It’s more environmentally driven and his main symptoms are cough and tightness of the chest. Normally spring and fall are the worst for him, but extreme cold can trigger it, too. And it is COLD today! Minus 21*C (around 4*F) with the wind chill. YIKES! They had been out for recess when he started complaining. A few puffs later and he was a new man. :)

Back at work I warmed up my very last serving of 10 minute chicken and rice soup: GEDC7462

I also spread 2 Ryvita crackers with a LC cheese wedge and topped them with some red pepper strips. GEDC7463

I picked DD up right after work to deliver her to a b-day party. After eating pizza and cake the girls are going to see The Tooth Fairy”. She was pretty excited to go! Then I dropped half my pay cheque worth of money (just kidding…..maybe) off to DS’s power skating coach. While gone my hubby got dinner together. GEDC7465

Grilled turkey sausage, steamed veggies and I warmed up the chickpeas. In the centre of my plate is some Ted Readers peach bourbon sauce for dipping. Food always tastes better when someone else cooks it, eh? ;) I came across one of my favourite ever chocolate bars on top of the fridge after eating. GEDC7466

Not sure if I was suppose to touch it, but I cut that baby in half and savoured each delicious bite.

My boys are currently watching one of Don Cherry Rock’em Sock’em videos. Man, some of those hits are outrageous! I told DS that when (if) he gets to a level of hockey where that kind of hitting takes place I won’t be able to watch. I think my head will be stuck in my hands the whole time! *shiver*

So, what crazy, wonderful plans does everyone have for the weekend? Mine will be fairly low key. DS has a 2 hour practice tomorrow and then we’ll go to the store to get grab bag goodies for his glow in the dark mini golf party on Sunday. Should be blasty!

Bye for now!!


  1. You are the best Momma in the world for going to school for DS. I have pretty serious asthma and my parents definitely had to make some sacrifices for me! After awhile we just had me carry around an inhaler (I don't believe this was legal haha).

    Mine definitely gets bad in the cold. Especially running in the cold! Glad he is feeling better.

  2. I love those jelly hearts! One of my favorite Valentine's day candies :) Glad you're getting lots of relax time in this weekend- well deserved. Let us know how DS likes the tooth fairy- looks cute. I have a pretty low key weekend ahead

  3. Isn't it always funny that on Friday it feels like the week flew by but on Tuesday it is dragging! I think we might go see When In Rome tomorrow night :)

  4. pretty exciting weekend ahead with a 1/2 marathon in miami beach!

  5. You're right, this week did kind-of fly by! Awww, poor DS, asthma can be really scary! (I've got asthma too and the frigid cold like we've been having triggers it for me too.) Happy Friday, Krista! :)

  6. Those videos are crazy sometimes! My ex played at the Jr level in the CHJL (now he is in the states on scholarship) and was always in fights and I hated if he got in fights when I was at the games.

  7. glad to know that it wasn't serious for DS... I got my heart rate up for a sec.
    low key here too... it's going to be a lot of snow around... hopefully it won't get to -21C.

  8. Oh glow in the dark mini golf is so fun!! You are such a cool and fun mom!!!!!!

    I never heard of that candybar, it sounds yum, love the name of it!!! I almost thought it said wonderbra, lol!!!!

    Have a great weekend girl!!!!!!

  9. I've never seen that candy bar before--I'd have to say my favorite is a skor you have those in Canada?! Yum! And those pineapple muffins look like something I would buy at a bakery--I bet they tasted that way too!


I'd love to hear from you!! Please leave a comment!
