Hi!! It seems like I’ve been gone from the blog so long. “Busy” has been my middle name the past few days and I can guarantee that I’m exhausted today. I don’t have the energy for a huge post and wouldn’t do that to you anyways, so I present you with some highlights instead…
It was a typical day at work. I did have a pretty decent lunch, though!
Cottage cheese, blueberries, a peach and honey.
I also picked my first spaghetti squash of the season from my garden.
I steamed half and topped it with salsa, a wee bit of sour cream and kidney beans for a great meal!
I bought these 2 chocolate bars that were just begging to come home with me: I’ve only tried the 64% with cacao nibs and its to die for!
This was actually my Friday. Amen!! My belly was a little off all day so I decided to buy some chicken soup from Tim Horton’s instead of eating the tomato/tuna salad I had packed:
I kept dinner light, too with scrambled eggs and a toasted Ezekiel muffin with zucchini jam: We went to Costco after dinner to pick up a few pies for the hockey fund raiser Friday night. Each family was required to bring dessert so we took the easy way out!
DD had an appointment downtown Toronto so that’s where I spent my day. Looks like a mall inside, doesn’t it? After her appointment we grabbed some Starbucks and walked around outside for a bit. I had a grande iced decaf Americano with a shot of vanilla syrup:
DS was pretty sure he was gonna “pet” one of these pigeons: Yeah, right! :) On the way home we stopped at Chudleighs apple orchard to see what varieties were available. The one I love, honey crisp is due out at the end of September along with the kids fave, McIntosh. I did, however, get my second fave: Friday night was the hockey party. My babysitter bailed in the 11th hour so we ended up renting a room at the hotel that the party was held at. One of the dad’s is the manager so anyone who wanted to have a few drinks got to stay at a reduced rate. We stashed the kids with movies and what such and proceeded to have a blast. Don’t worry, we checked in on them frequently. I knew dinner would be a late one so I had a microwave dinner before we left to tie me over: These are just a few photos from the night:
The evening was a huge success and a good time to boot. All the parents on the team DS is playing on this year are fabulous people and I’m so happy to have made a new group of friends. YAY!!
I was happy to find a big pot of oats in the breakfast area the next morning! I topped them with raisins and honey. Lunch was pretty great, too. Kale freshly picked with tomato and tuna all dressed with some fig balsamic dressing: We went to a BBQ at the neighbours place last night. I didn’t take any pics because I got the distinct feeling the the hostess woulda been offended. I did take these over, though…
HA! I’ve consumed more alcohol this weekend than I have in 10+ years!!!
We all slept in this morning, but had to be in the next city over by 11:30 for 4 hours worth of soccer. Ugh… At least it was a gorgeous day out! We stopped for a very late lunch at Subway before coming home. I think DS was famished even though I fed him hardboiled eggs throughout the morning!
I had a veggie & Swiss on a flat bread; This is my second go with the flat brad and I’m not convinced yet. They just seem too gummy. We also got cones at McDonald’s for the drive. We spent the rest of the afternoon chilling in the cool rec room watching Eclipse. The fam loved it, BTW! I’m going to go scrounge up something for dinner. Then I’ll be relaxing some more. Don’t want to start the first full week back to work tuckered out!!!
