I was up extra early today in order to get to the rink on time to pick my boy up from hockey practice. It was like leaving the house in the middle of the night! I grabbed 2 strawberry pumpkin coconut bites for the road. Too dark for pictures! We were home before 8am so I ate my breakfast then;
- 1 cup water
- 1/3 cup sunrise blend with quinoa
- pumpkin puree
- chocolate honey/macadamia butter
- Dorset cereal
DD was still ill so I called us in sick and then tried to get a doctor’s appointment for her. They couldn’t see her until tomorrow so I opted to take her to the walk in clinic and I’m sure glad I did.
Ends up she has a throat/ear infection and needed antibiotics. I can’t imagine how much worse she would’ve felt had I waited another day. We made it back home by 10am and she spent the rest of the day laying down watching movies.
I was a little nervous that they would be spoiled since they took a bit to get here, but once I was saw ingredient list and how they were wrapped, I knew they’d be OK.
I tried a twist on the kids toad in a hole from yesterday for my lunch today. The urge came from a McMuffin that one of the hockey Dad’s gave me this morning. I didn’t get much more than a bite before my lovely son claimed it! Instead of bread I used a bagel and plopped an egg white into each hole. Unfortunately, the bagel hole wasn’t quite big enough so the egg white didn’t stay put! Meh…tasted just as good! I topped them off with some goat’s milk mozz. Two of Allie’s treats also made it on the plate.
The aprican balls were very good. I may have gone back for 2 more, but only I know for sure! :D
I spent most of the afternoon on the computer leaving the house again only to go pick up my new glasses(!!) and DS. I promise some photos of the new eyes when I don’t look so worn out! Sitting around all day can sure make a girl feel frumpy! I did spend some time outside raking leaves and playing with KC. He’s so full of energy in the cooler weather!
Dinner was a big serving of steamed broccoli, a Yves veggie burger with a LC cheese wedge, dijonnaise, ketchup and romaine and some jade grain blend that I had bought a few weeks ago at the bulk barn;
The grain blend was very good. This isn’t such a great picture of it but I have some packed for my lunch tomorrow and I’m anticipating better lightening for then. It’s got a very pretty green hue to it. Dessert was another piece of strawberry peach rhubarb pie. I didn’t bother with a photo tonight, though.
Not sure if I’ll be going to work tomorrow. It will depend on if DD still has a fever or not. As much as I’d like to stay home, I’d much prefer DD feeling healthy again! Tonight will be an early night seeing as I was up with the chickens this morning. Hope you all have a great Monday night!
Bye for now!!
