For some odd reason I was wide awake at 6:30am. I always thought getting up that early on a Sunday was against the rules! It did look pretty cool outside what with the thick fog we had. Check this out;
By 8 it had all burned off and the sun shone bright and beautiful for the rest of the day.
I wasn’t anywhere near feeling hungry so I decided to get some baking done. First up was a batch of Allie’s WW Pumpkin Raisin Scones;
These turned out GREAT! I used a 1/4 cup of raisins and a 1/4 cup of chopped walnuts. I also sprinkled some cinnamon sugar on top pre baking. Then I set to work preparing a batch of Super Charge Me Cookies from ED&BV.
Another hit although I feel badly for DD because she hates raisins and both these recipes have them. I promised her some non-raisin cookies this week. Speaking of the kids, they were actually well behaved while I was busy in the kitchen. DS had a word search going;
- 1 cup water
- 1/4 cup BRM 7 grain cereal
- cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice
- dried cranberries
- pumpkin puree
- chocolate honey
- almond butter
This ended up being a really big bowl of food! YUM!
It was the perfect day weather wise to get the job done. Last year it was so cold that I stayed in the house while it came down!
Then I indulged in a super charge me cookie. I spent some time on the computer before hitting the shower to freshen up for the hockey game. We left the house about 2pm for DS’s 3:30 game. Although they lost (again), they played a strong game. The other team had a terrific goalie and we just couldn’t get many past the kid. One of the Dad’s drives a taxi part time and gave DD a camera that someone left in the cab a few months ago. I’m jealous! It’s better than the one I have!!! Here are a few shots that she took using it;
I LOVE that shot of her!! :D It’s going in a frame for sure.
Me and my little man. Me in a hat = BAD hair day! I don’t often wear a hat because my ears are shaped weird. Meh, at least they work, right?!
DD and her BFF, “K”. All the girls do at the games is take photos of each other and together. Some of them are a real hoot! K actually did some scrap booking with them and it turned out awesome. Now that DD has her own camera she’d like to do the same.
We grabbed Subway for the drive home. I got a little crazy tonight and tried the flat bread. If you haven’t tried it yet, DON’T!!! I was extremely disappointed. I had all my regular fillings (turkey, Swiss, lettuce, tomato, grn pepper, cuke, blk olives and sweet onion sauce), but the bread ruined it. It was just like pasty white bread that gets all stuck in your teeth like glue. Blah. Live and learn, right? Next time I’ll be going back to my WW bread. Anywho, here’s the beast :
Looks pretty innocent, eh? Do not be fooled! Once we got home and settled, I warmed up a scone and enjoyed it with a mango apple tea.
Candy confession time! I did really good today. There’s not much left in the bags that turns my crank, so I may be done with the junk real soon! I did munch on an unpictured mini Wonderbar at the game as well as a French cap that my hubby bought me. Here’s the Skittles I ate;
Before I go, I wanted to try something that I’ve seen a few bloggers do that I think is really neat. If there’s anything you would like to know about me or my life, please ask me in the comment section of this post. I hope to get enough questions to put together a Q&A post for you all. Don’t be shy….I’m not! :D Looking forward to seeing what you would all like me to spill the beans about.
Hope you’ve all enjoyed the weekend!!! Here’s to a fab Monday, right?!
Bye for now!!
