Ray Of Light

Whatever that little blip in the weather was yesterday, it was sure gone today. I woke up, and it was a beautiful sunny day. And since morning is the only time of day I see direct sunlight at my front door, I figured I should take my breakfast out there, at least to take a couple photos.

Check out how awesome my baked French toast looks bathed in sunshine (and a little maple syrup).

A side of well-lit bacon (with ketchup) 😀

And all that sunshine deserves a little party – Mango Peach Party!

Now, I’m sure you are thinking, if it was a lovely sunny day, you must have biked to work. Well…not so much. See, I generally only wash my hair every other day (it’s better for your hair, and I can save on hair products!), and today was a hair washing day. I didn’t want to have helmet head when I got to work, since I have my new ‘do now, so my vanity won out, and I drove. In my defence though, I also had to run some errands after work, and I have skating boot camp tonight, so I think it was justified. I’m planning on biking tomorrow. I promise!

I got some crappy news at work today – I might be losing my office. Boo-urns. I know I’m only there for like, 2 1/2 months (not even!), but still, I like my office. I think if I do lose the office, I can at least wrangle a sweet desk, because I’ll play the seniority card. Hey, you gotta do it sometimes!

Lunch was a bit ridiculous – I believe this is what one would call volume eating?

It looks like alot, but when you think about it, it’s not really that much. I brought the fixings for a salad: red leaf/romaine lettuce, strawberries, walnuts, raspberry vinaigrette, and some unpictured goat cheese (I had left it at work yesterday). As you can see, I also brought some cottage cheese & black pepper, about 1 cup of plain popcorn (crunch!), carrot, cucumber, and a wee slice of caramel apple bread.

How vibrant are these fruit & veggies?!

And a gratuitous caramel apple bread picture, just because 😉

Quite a lunch, eh?

Well, I have to get ready to head out the door again, so I shall leave it at that. Have a great evening everyone 😀

    My hair gets washed every other day, too! I can totally relate to your reasoning for driving to work instead of biking!

    Breakie and lunch look great! 🙂
