Announcement Day

Today was the day they announced at work that I’m leaving. It definitely caused a stream of emails/office visits/phone calls from people. But I must say, everyone was so positive and supportive, it made it a great day. Lots of well wishes and congratulations from my coworkers. I really do work with a great group of people, and I know that will be the hardest thing about leaving. Good thing there’s Facebook to keep in touch 🙂

I totally slept in this morning. I rolled out of bed at 7:50 this morning. Oops! That meant no biking to work for me today.

I whipped up a quick breakfast when I got up, because I was starving. To combat the heat, I went with a cooling smoothie.

  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • milk

I’m sad I don’t have my fancy glasses anymore. I guess the ol’ Magic Bullet ones will have to do.

I also defrosted an almond quinoa muffin and spread on a little icing macadamia nut butter.

Then it was time to pack up a fresh & tasty lunch. I started with this wicked awesome sandwich combo – roasted red pepper hummus, sharp white cheddar, and creamy avocado, on Silver Hills “The Big 16” bread (on sale this week!).

The usual veggies on the side – carrot and cucumber.

And for the fruit component – fresh raspberries and a kiwi.

If you haven’t tried this sandwich combo, you totally have to. It’s key to have a strong flavoured cheese to play off the hummus, otherwise it will just get lots. It’s sooo good. I have a coworker to thank for introducing me to this one. I would have loved to grill it up, but alas, no grill at work.

Well, it’s time to relax before heading out to Skating Boot Camp. See you all later tonight!
