One Photo Monday

January 26, 2009

Hello my loyal readers,

Hope you all had a lovely Monday. We had some more ups and downs at work today – seems to be a weekly occurrence! Overall, I had a fairly nice start to the week.

After work, I knocked out 8k (7 run, 1 walk) and then some weights, basically simulating Jillian Michaels’ routine, but at the gym. 

I made a trip over to Shoppers’, then perused the magazines at Chapters. Nothing like reading for free! 🙂

Dinner was easy tonight – maple salmon and leftover roasted veggies.

Hence the title – easy meal, easy post!

I had a little dessert (sin bowl with gummi bears and Nibs, amounting to 150kcal) while watching streaming Gossip Girl. I’ve found a great site and I’m excited to try the show! It’s the perfect pastime for Graham-free evenings! Oh, well, except that I’m supposed to be stripping the dresser and bookshelf, in preparation for painting this weekend. And there’s Daring Bakers to finish. And skis/snowboard to pick up. And ironing napkins. Ah well, guess that can be done tomorrow!

Night, all. Sleep well!

Where were we…

December 7, 2008

I had a great day yesterday – haircut, hanging out at my parents’ with our dog, getting a few small things (soap dispenser, wrapping paper)…

Graham was in town around 5:45 and we headed to the party soon after. What a fun night!!! So much laughing, good food and amazing friends.

We had somewhat of a lazy morning today. Here was breakfast…

And then maybe another half 🙂

Here was today’s advent gift… the package on the back!

Holiday muffin papers! Thank you Santa! 🙂

Graham and I went to his parents’ to lunch, then to get our tree!

Graham went back to Sarnia, so I was on my own with the tree. I felt like I was smuggling a dead body into the building… I don’t know if we are allowed a real tree, so it was a little dicy. I only saw one person from the car to the door – the son of a neighbour. 

I won’t photograph the tree yet, because we don’t have any ornaments up. We’ll decorate it when Graham’s home. 

The evening’s been quiet – 5.1 mile run, quick trip to Canadian Tire, dinner, laundry, Amazing Race, shortbread cookies.

Sorry for the blur. That’s meatloaf that we made on the cooking spree weekend and froze, as well as sweet potato and raw veggie salad.

Guess that’s all for now. Hope you had a great weekend too!


Lazy Tuesday

November 11, 2008

This is the life! Well, I say that… it would be pretty lonely to lead the exact life that I had today. It was lots of alone time! But, it is nice to have a Tuesday to myself – with no work in sight!

I had a great shopping trip at Yorkdale, buying two skirts, a turtleneck and earrings. Pretty good!

I came home to a quick left-over lunch.

I’ve had a pretty chill afternoon – the bank, the shoe repair man, my book (finally finished Breaking Dawn!), two episodes of Lipstick Jungle.

Great dinner! Even though the sweet potato fries were a tad crispy! I’m now relaxing with my hot water bottle [side note: I think there is something wrong with our heat…] and Dancing with the Stars. I always said I wanted peace and quiet from Graham’s comments on results night, but I wish he was here! Ah well, Friday will come soon…

Night!

Good evening all!

We have CNN on and are watching the results trickle in… s   l   o   w   l   y   .

Here was dinner…

Graham cut off the end of the sausage just as I was getting ready to take the photo!

I guess that’s all for now… going to get a few Halloween candies, I think, and continue watching the tv. Happy to have my computer back, too, so I can internet and watch at the same time.

Enjoy your evening!
