Yay for the afternoon off

December 11, 2008

I had a half day of vacation just hanging around, so I decided to take it today.

Left work at 12, stopped at Michael’s.

Came home for lunch.


Aren’t you proud?!? I ground the beans, frothed the milk and made the coffee! Wasn’t as good as Graham’s, but I do what I can. Sort of random, but that’s two oat banana muffins. 

I headed out to Yorkdale and was quite successful! I had a few more errands to do after that – return to Canadian Tire, Chapters, etc… I considered that my exercise today. After four days in a row, and a particularly long workout yesterday, I decided to take a day off.

Here was dinner…


Check out our new napkins! $1.97 each at Pottery Barn today. They only had two left, but ah well, they will be for the two of us! That’s why I switched out to the summer mats, so I could show off my bargain!

Here’s a close-up on dinner…


Shrimp, brown rice and carrots, with garlic, sesame oil and soy sauce!

Looking forward to CSI tonight, though Grissom leaves… I wonder what will happen to the show? 

Enjoy your evening, whatever you’re up to!


1 down, 4 to go

‘Til the weekend, that is! I had a very busy day, but managed to get in a run after work. My legs cooperated, so I did about 32 minutes on the treadmill. Speedy, but just enough to get me going.

Graham and I made dinner together – shrimp and rice. These pictures don’t do it justice! I told Graham that he could do a guest post, but he just laughed. He made the shrimp part, while I was making more pear muffins for Graham to take to work.

I’m watching Dancing with the Stars tonight and Graham is prepping law school stuff. Typical night here! I’m going to make sure to get in some reading because my book is getting so intense!
