Too Old For Cavities

Today was another stormy, wet day. Le sigh. What can ya do? I enjoyed a great breakfast, though!


  • 1 cup water
  • 1/3 cup PC 5 grain cereal
  • mashed up strawberries & raspberries
  • hemp seeds
  • sprinkle of sunflower seeds
  • splash of vanilla coffee creamer


I let the berries soften up in the water and then hit them up with the immersion blender before adding the oats. This was mucho delicious!

I ran out of any type of dried fruit for my morning nibbles and I survived! I’m trying to get away from that type of snack because I normally am only eating it out of boredom. Instead, I ate 1/2 of this Clif bar about 11:30;


Yum, yum! I have about 10 more Clif bars that I need to get eaten up before I can buy anymore bars. This may take awhile considering that I typically only eat half at a time.

I had some errands to run over my lunch hour so no gym for me today. If the weather holds I may get out for a run later on tonight.

I tried a new tuna product at lunch today. Gold Seal Smoked Light Tuna Slices packed in water.



Here’s what it looks like once opened;


I added half of this to the leftover roasted asparagus and steamed veggies from dinner last night. It was kinda boring. I really should have added some salt & pepper to it!


Not sure if I’d buy this tuna again. It was the same as the regular canned stuff only “cut” differently. Let me tell you that the canned tuna is much cheaper than this stuff!

I sat around most of the afternoon DREADING my 4:20 dentist appointment. You see, my kids were cavity free. Me on the other hand? TWO of them. What the heck? As the title of this post says, I’m too darn old for cavities. Alas, I sucked it up and got’em filled.

My mouth was pretty frozen but I was a starvin Marvin by 6pm so I whipped up a tasty green brown monster that I drank with a very classy straw;


  • frozen mixed berries
  • frozen mango
  • spinach
  • 1/2 cup water/unsweetened almond breeze
  • 1/3 cup oats

YUMMY! I got it all down without drooling all over the place, too! :) Once I can actually feel my face I’ll be diving into this bowl of sweet tasting honeydew melon…


Before I sign off, I need some Live Writer help. I would like my photos to be bigger but even the “medium” setting puts them out of the margins on my blog template. I manually adjusted them this time, but I’m sure they’re slightly distorted because of it. How do you all get your pictures to fit larger? Can anyone help a girl out? THANKS!

I’m off work tomorrow for Canada Day and what a feeling that is! I hope the rain holds off because the city always holds a big party in the park that involves fire works. I’d love a sunny day to enjoy it. Any of my fellow Canucks have plans for the day???

Bye for now!


  1. This weather is just ridiculous! I hope you guys have a good holiday!!

    On WLW you can set your own picture dimensions (skip the drop down menu with the small/medium/large) and just fill in whatever width you want. If you select lock ratio then the height will automatically adjust so it's not warped. I hope that helps?!

  2. Hope you got a nice run in! I hate hate the dentist! All that scraping and poking makes me ill! mmmm your melon looks awesome!

  3. hhhm sorry I cant help, i set mine at medium and it seems to work, but I believe you can change the width of your blogs text area in the blogger settings

  4. hooray for being off tomorrow!!
    that bfast looks soooo delicious
    have a wonderful night!

  5. Oh yum, your oats look delectable!

  6. For Live Writer, you can change the default size for medium as well. I did that, because if I use it's default size, my pictures ended up being slightly wider than my column width. You kind of just have to play around with the settings until you find the perfect fit for you blog template. Email me if you want more help though :)

    Way to not drool your liquid dinner with the frozen mouth though. The only time I've had that was when I had my wisdom teeth out this winter, and it was hard to not be a slobering fool!

  7. Lovely color for the oats!!! And oats in the smoothie too? wooooo..... that must taste good and filling!!!
    You made me crave for some tuna now! hahah.... I want a tuna salad too!!

  8. Oh no--cavities are no fun; although I wouldn't know because I still am cavity free! Hope that lasts!
    That tuna looks good, but I prefer pouched tuna better so it doesn't have that "canny" taste!

  9. That stinks about the cavities, my husband just found out he has 2 cavities also!


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