Peachy Keen

Here I am, blogging from the ferry on my way home from the island. Sadly, there is no Wi-Fi onboard, but at least this will be ready to post when I walk in the door, so I can hit the sack ASAP! It’s been one long day.

I started my long day bright and early – or should I say dark and early since the sun isn’t up yet – at 5:30 am. I put together one monster of a cereal bowl for breakfast.

I enjoyed having fresh peaches in my cereal when I was over at my cousin’s house on the weekend, and thought I would recreate it at home since my mom had picked up some beautiful peaches at the farmer’s market on the weekend. They had just gotten ripe enough to use.

I dished out a bowl of Kashi GoLean Crunch, then added half of one giant peach chopped up. A dusting of shredded coconut & a healthy dose of milk completed the bowl.

I think it was almost a1:1 cereal to peach ratio. And that was only half the peach!

To continue on with the peach theme, I had a glass of imposter Mango Peach Party juice.

It even went with the new fall tablecloth on the dining room table.

I actually drove myself to school today, and it was alot quicker than I expected. I guess rush hour isn’t quite in full swing yet when I have to get to an 8 am class. It was also a beautiful sunny day, which always helps πŸ™‚

After class, I motored on over to the ferry terminal, and caught the 11 am ferry. Once I was settled in, it was time to work on lunch.

I’m sure it’s not shocking that I had leftover mac & cheese.

With a side of green – cucumber slices.

I also grabbed some concord grapes for a fruity kick.

And had a few bites of the trail mix that forever lives in my school bag. I take it every day, but haven’t been eating more than a bite or two at a time.

One of my good friends picked me up at the ferry terminal, and we hung out at his house for the afternoon – I was playing around on the laptop, sorting out some more hockey pool things, and he was playing some first person shooter game on Wii. Quality time, I tell ya πŸ˜‰ We did have a little unpictured popcorn snack. He makes the best popcorn, seasoned with cajun spice and seasoning salt. Yum!

Then I was off to my old workplace, where I had a little time to catch up with some people before the hockey draft. Fortunately, dinner is always provided – the winner from the previous year buys pizza for the night of the draft. I ended up with one slice of Hawaiian, and one slice of some veggie pizza. It had artichokes on it, so it had to be good. I also managed to draft up a pretty good team – assuming no one gets injured on me. Here’s hoping I might actually win this year!

One of my coworkers whisked me back to the ferry, but sadly, I had to wait an hour since the ferries only run every two hours when it’s not peak season. I had a little nap in the terminal, and called home to chat since everyone will be in bed when I get there.

Once I was on the ferry, I was feeling the nibblies. Could just be boredom, but whatever, I went with it.

A delicious white chocolate chunk cookie. This one was perfectly crisp on the outside, but chewy enough on the inside I didn’t think I was going to break my teeth πŸ˜‰ Plus it had giant chunks of white chocolate – how can you go wrong?

Sadly, that brings my day of eats to a close. I think I’ll play a little mah jong do some homework for the rest of the ferry ride. Hopefully I’ll stay awake the whole drive home. Night!

    Mmm..that’s my favorite kind of cookie, ever!

    I love artichokes too. I’ve actually never had them on pizza, is that crazy?! I will have to do that sometime. I could easily eat an entire jar of artichoke in one sitting, sooo good!
