Only One Day Left

Well, it will be once this is posted and anyone reads it 😉

Can you believe that 2009 is practically over?! Seriously, where does the time go? To think, one year ago I was still in my 20’s, working in my full time job, living on my own, doing the adult thing, and now I’m back at home, in my 30’s, back at school, and not always feeling like the adult I should be. Crazy!

How did I spend my 2nd to last day of 2009? Mostly in my pajamas!

I started my morning with some fantabulous oats.

Hello new tablecloth! And yes, this is another one my mom quilted. It’s one of my favourites, probably because it reminds me of ice and snow.

And what do we have sitting on top of the ice & snow? Matcha Green Tea Goji Oatmeal.

Food 2 085

  • 1/3 cup oats, milk, water + extra water
  • 1 tbsp Ruth’s Chia Goodness cereal
  • dried goji berries
  • splash of vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp matcha powder
  • drizzle of agave syrup
  • sprinkle of almond slices

Food 2 087

With an icy looking glass of white cranberry juice, breakfast was delightful.

Food 2 082

I’m not really sure what I did all morning. I interwebbed, harassed my parents, worked on the giant crossword, and was generally lazy. My parents went to an afternoon movie with my cousin and his wife, so I had the house to myself. Woot! I started off with lunch.

Food 2 088

Total rainy day food – soup and sandwich. Chicken noodle soup, from a can no less!

Food 2 092

And a plain ol’ cheese sammy – cheddar cheese on some toasted Silver Hills “The Big 16” bread. Yummy!

Food 2 090

A couple of kahlua balls were the perfect dessert.

I then made my way downstairs, cranked up the tunes, and got my Wii on, featuring a little Dr. Mario. I also set to work on a few projects, made some lists, planned, and messed around on the computer some more. You better believe I was still in my pj’s.

Eventually my parents came home, proclaimed they were going out for dinner, and I was dressed in a flash. Off to White Spot we went, where I enjoyed Bishop’s CurryInspired by John Bishop, owner of award-winning Bishop’s restaurant in Vancouver.  Fresh BC chicken breast simmered with sweet bell peppers and mushrooms in a delicately spiced orange, apple and organic tomato coconut milk curry sauce over Jasmine rice.  Served with naan bread, mango chutney and cilantro. I had mine sans cilantro, and sans photo. But rest assured, it was one tasty dish.

We came home, did some digesting, then I made my way to the gym for a sweat session with the stairclimber. I ran a couple of errands, and wound up back where I started – at home and in my pj’s.

I was feeling a little peckish, but managed to pass on all the Christmas baking to have a more nutritious snack.

Food 2 095

Yogurt with frozen blueberries and granola. I swear there is yogurt under there. See?

Food 2 096

I think this tasted extra good this evening, because my body is starting to reject sugary Christmas baking. Is that even possible?!

Now I must find my way to bed – or at least a comfy chair to read. I’ll be waking up early tomorrow, as I’m catching a ferry to spend New Year’s over in Victoria with some of my friends back there. I’m so excited! Tomorrow will be filled with fun times, good friends, and RockBand! It’s been far too long. I’ll be gone until Saturday, and may or may not post. Have a safe and fantastic New Year’s everyone!
