Are Pigs Flying???

This was the sight on my bed this evening

Here’s how I figure this went down: Sienna was sleeping on her blankie, per usual. Wilson came in, hoped up, and curled up on there. Neither were aware of the other’s existence, since  the lights were out. I have serious doubts they have become friends overnight. Also, ignore my unkempt bed. I’ll admit it, I can be a a slob, especially when it comes to be making.

Anyways…let’s back track to this afternoon.

I met up with my workshop group, and I think we’ve come up with a pretty good plan for our classroom workshops. Plus it gets the kids trying out veggies with different healthy dips (salsa, hummus, guacamole). I think it will be fun 🙂 I snacked on the new Peanut Butter & Jelly Larabar while we discussed.

I’m going to be honest here – I was somewhat underwhelmed. They had the peanut butter flavour working for me, but I wanted more jelly. It was more like a watered down Peanut Butter Cookie Larabar. That’s not to say it was bad, but I wanted a better pb to j ratio. To be fair though, I would give it another go, because you just never know if your bar wasn’t representative of the majority.

I also promised to show you my Sprouts treats from early today. First, I grabbed another delicious Diet-Buster (still hate that name) Cookie.

I had to get a second treat, because they had these Double Pumpkin Cranberry Cakies!

Can you believe I haven’t even tried either of them yet? I know, I’m obviously insane. I just hope my family keeps their paws off mah cookies!

My dad picked me up from the train this afternoon, then we went to vote. There was a federal by-election in our riding, so we had to do our civic duty. No one ever shows up for by-elections. I think the voter turn out here was something like 30%? Lame

Once I was home, I got changed, and decided to not go to cardio kickboxing with my sister. I had a new form of workout torture fun I wanted to try.

I picked these up on the weekend when went to get my hemmed pants. What can I say, I had a week moment. Plus they were only $9.99 each. I looked for the infamous 30-Day Shred, but it was MIA.

I decided to try out the No More Trouble Zones. Yeah, I’d say that was a good substitute for cardio kickboxing. I’m pretty sure I’ll barely be able to move tomorrow, which I love and hate. I liked the workout, because there were some challenging moves in there. It made me angry I couldn’t do some of them full out, but that just gives me incentive to work at it so I can do them 🙂

Dinner was leftover stew from last night.

See, even though I didn’t get a photo last night, you didn’t miss out 🙂 I was actually saving you from the boredom of seeing it two nights in a row. Riiight.

I had some beef, lots of mushrooms, carrot, celery, a piece of potato, and a small dumpling. ‘Twas all delicious.

Then I hunkered down, and spent the majority of the evening working through all the questions on my exam tomorrow. They are all essay questions, so I was just taking notes about what I want to write. There are a couple questions I don’t feel as comfortable with my answers, so I’m hoping they don’t all end up on the test.

I did take a break from studying to enjoy more leftovers – apple blackberry crisp.

I love the way the blackberries turn the apples that magenta shade. Very cool.

I also took a little time out to watch some CSI: Miami. It’s a big deal this week – all three of the CSI shows are dealing with an interconnected story line. You can’t miss groundbreaking tv like that

I’m considering a little more work on my exam questions, then getting some shut eye. It’s great, I get to sleep in tomorrow. My morning class is cancelled, so I don’t need to be at the school until my exam at 2 pm. And since we have our midterm, the class is only 2 hours instead of the usual 4, so I should even get home in time to watch most of the hockey game, enjoy dinner, and hit up the gym. Woot!

Time to go be studious. Night!

    lovely kitties 🙂 I loved when my cat hopped on my bed while I was studying at my desk. It was so comforting. I need to make some apple crisp soon 🙂

    There must be something in the air, because our dog and my cat (who hate each other) were both on our bed yesterday too… weird…

    Jillian never fails to kick my butt and there are some challenging moves in there. I alternated mainly between The Shred (bought on Ebay for $8) and Cardio Blast. Fantastic!

    I love when cats play nice. I have 5 who have a very love hate relationship!

    Good luck on your test!

    DAMN! I missed CSI Miami last night. Bugger…..

    Sienna looks less than impressed at having her picture taken with Wilson. What a ham bone!

    You must have some strong will power going on to still have those cookies laying around!

    I have 30 day shred. Do not like it at all. I cannot work out to some rude lady yelling at me. I prefer to go out for a run and do some free weights in the gym.

    I watched the CSI. All I have to say is what kind of incompetent idiots would let that chick leave the police station in the first place when there was obviously an issue.

    I did No More Trouble Zones last night too! Definitely feeling it a bit today.

    All I can say is, your bed is making me miss my own lovin’ kitty at home! 😦
