Look who’s doing a double post again! HA! Last night instead of posting I watched “Where The Wild Things Are” with the fam. The kids loved this movie. I did not love this movie. Now, I have not read the book which in my experience is always better than the movie, but I really felt like the movie condoned, and awarded, bad behaviour. I had no patience for the behaviour of the main character at the beginning of the movie and very little tolerance for how the Mother handled the situation in the end. My opinion, of course!

- 1/2 cup Quaker oats
- 2 tbsp granola
The sun has been shining brightly the past few days, but it’s been rather cool. I’ll still take the sun, though. The only drawback is that the windows at work do not have curtains/shades/tint or anything else to block the sun. From 8-11am it beams directly at my work station forcing me to get very creative in how I block it. Check this out;
Yes, that is a post it note! HA! It does the trick and I have thick enough skin to handle the teasing. ;)
I like this flavour a lot, but wouldn’t put it in my top 3.
I did hit the gym yesterday, but my HRM was on the fritz so no stats. I did 30mins on the treadmill at a speed of 4mph with a 7% incline. I gabbed with a co worker the whole time, too. Then I got my 20mins of weights in. Three weeks ago when I started “lifting”, I was using 7lbs weights for some of the moves. Now I’m up to 12lbs! Progress!
Friday’s we usually do some kind of take out for dinner. My hubby and I wanted Chinese from a new place that just opened up, the kids wanted Mary Brown’s. Rather than arguing about it, I picked up both so we had quite the feast.
YUM! I really like this new place because they make everything fresh right in front of you. After dinner came the movie, some Criminal minds and bed. There was also an unpictured small bowl of Wild roots cereal somewhere in there. Here…
I woke up at 8 this morning after a very good sleep. Before I even though about eating I sorted all the laundry and got that business underway. That made me kinda hot so I went with a bowl of Kashi UP cereal for breakfast:
I had a bit more than what you see because there was still quite a bit of USVAB left at the bottom of the bowl so I went back for a bit more.
Judging by his position, I’m sure he was gauging whether or not he wanted to chance jumping! LOL!
The morning was spent on the computer, cleaning out the laundry room and the downstairs bathroom. Fun times. Lunch came around all too fast so I warmed up some leftovers from dinner. I used a trick that I read about over at Hungry Girl which involves rinsing food that has been drenched in sauce. Although I loved the chicken curry, it made me rather stinky last night so I put my serving into a mesh strainer and ran it under the tap for minute. I also ate the last of the broccoli with some soy sauce on it.
I was very pleased that rinsing the curry did not take away any of the flavour. And my tummy was OK after eating it.
DS and I made a trip to the mall this aft to develop some photos, get the sticker for the plate on our car and to buy him new shoes. He requested a small chocolate sundae from DQ as a treat and I stopped at Starbuck’s on our way out for a tall NF 1/2 sweet dark cherry mocha:
I made myself a tasty dinner tonight. There’s been a buttercup and butternut squash sitting on my counter for WAY too long so I decided to bake them. I cubed the be-nut and seasoned it with salt, pepper, cumin, oregano, basil coriander, chilli powder, cinnamon, garlic infused olive oil and lime juice. The be-cup just got sliced into wedges and sprayed with olive oil. I also made some quinoa with a 1/2 cup of coconut milk, 1/4 cup quinoa, 1 tbsp raisins, 1 tbsp shredded coconut and 2 tsp of pecans. I served myself about half of everything:
Haven’t tried any yet, but I’m looking forward to the coconut one!
Bye for now!!
