Are Ya 1, Are Ya 2, Are Ya 3….

You’d have to keep going for awhile! ;) So today is my birthday. And I couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day! The sun was shining and it was, dare I say, hot. IMG_0820 IMG_0831 Short sleeves and shades…..Perfect!

Like yesterday, I made my breakfast after dropping DS off at hockey camp. I popped into the Bulk Barn yesterday and stocked up on rye, kamut and spelt flakes and chose rye for today. IMG_0817

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup rye flakes
  • cinnamon
  • raisins
  • almond butter
  • kefir IMG_0816

After eating DD and I borrowed KC and took him for a ride in the Jeep to a popular trail in the area. He loves a car ride: IMG_0819

And loves his walks, too. Here is he too impatient for a picture: IMG_08181 IMG_0822

By the time we came home it was time for lunch. I filled a bowl with baby spinach some leftover quinoa and this can of tuna: IMG_0823

I had a coupon for a free can which is why it ended up in my pantry. Here it is up on top of my greens. IMG_0824

It was OK. Definitely spicy, but not to peanutty. I also had a wee bit of trouble getting past the look of it. It just didn’t appear appetizing to me. After my salad DD and I noshed on some secret granola bars. IMG_0828 IMG_0826

I promise a reveal by week’s end!! :)

DD went to play with the neighbour kids for a bit after lunch so I took the opportunity to catch some sun out on the deck with a few magazines for a half hour or so. The I spent 1 hour in my flower beds getting rid of all the winter “stuff”. I know it’ll probably snow again, but I figure I’m one step ahead now. Some of my plants are even breaking ground! YAY! When she came home we took a walk to the grocery store to get some fixings for subs for dinner. Then we picked DS up from camp.

In the 10 minutes that I was gone my MIL dropped a b-day present off for me. Check it out!! IMG_0838

She knows me well. LOL I can’t wait to get into this treat! And now that the kids sports are easing up, I’ll actually have time for to do it.

DS had practice with his team from 5-5:50 and us gals had Pilate’s at 5:45, hence the sub dinner. I baked up 2 Dempster’s WW oven fresh baguettes and let them cool for 15 minutes before loading them with goodies. My 6” had provolone, Swiss, turkey, ham, cucumber, tomato, lettuce and honey Dijon dressing on it: IMG_0839

Mmmm…so good! And much cheaper than Subway, too. I also had a Gala apple: IMG_0837

I’ve got The Biggest Loser on now and just finished a camera shy dark chocolate blueberry banana muffin. And I’m working on a tea:


Before I go, here is one of the items I bought online from Lululemon last weekend (please excuse the dork ass look on my face):


I still have one other item to show you! I’ll do that in the next few days.
