I can’t help it if Environment Canada sucks! I’m almost disappointed. I was hoping for some thunder and torrential downpour [...]

I awoke to a very dark room this morning thanks to my new black curtains, unfortunately the darkness still didn’t help me get 8 hours sleep. Gah! At least I got to put my new hand blender to work this morning, and made blended oats!

2 tbsp wheat bran
1 cup water

Before I get started, I want to share a little perk from work tonight. I was covering city council and look what was on the agenda:

That’s for my triathlon!! Is it strange that I find all this re-zoning stuff interesting? Maybe I could be “Councillor Susan” someday??

Wow, my weekends are boring! Up at 4:30 am, in bed at 8:30 pm. Even though I work a full eight hours, I feel like I should be go-go-going when I get off work because it’s so early in the afternoon. Days like today, where I don’t, I feel so lazy. I definitely don’t feel [...]

Well hello there! I just uploaded my most recent pictures and I totally forgot I took this one last night…

Ahahahaha. Chris and I saw this display when we were walking around downtown. It’s not even a store, they’re just using the windows as an advertising display.
