Called In

Bonjour mes amis! Just practicing my French, in case I have to bust it out while volunteering at the Games in February. Hope you all had a wonderful Wednesday.

I started my day off with a quick breakfast, per usual for my early 5:30 am wake up calls.

Food 3 543

PB & B on toast.

Food 3 540

I toasted up two slices of Silver Hills Squirrelly sprouted grain bread, spread on some creamy peanut butter, and topped it with ripe banana slices and a drizzle of agave.

Food 3 539

With the standard glass of juice – Happy Planet Mango Peach Party.

Food 3 541

As long as there is peanut butter involved, I’ll eat bananas. What can I say, I’m particular like that with my eats.

Transit was busy this morning, so I ended up standing on both the train and bus, which is always a fun challenge – the bus I take is an express bus, and sometimes I wonder about the drivers. I managed to survive though, and made it though my biochemistry lecture without falling asleep as well.

It was fu-reezing today, and I had to break down and get a little something something from Starbucks.

Food 3 545

The usual non-fat, half sweet green tea latte. I did notice though, that they offer a vanilla rooibos latte that I’m pretty sure I need to try out. There could possibly be competition for my beloved green tea!

It did a good job of getting me all warm & toasty, while I wasted time during my 3 hour break in my usual hideout.

Eventually my tummy was a’ grumbling for some lunch.

Food 3 553

I had a saladromaine lettuce, cucumber, carrot, roasted chicken, dill dip for dressing.

Food 3 551

A Kashi Peanut Peanut Butter granola bar.

Food 3 552

And some fruit – red grapes and kumquats!

Food 3 547

We had kumquats on sale at work last week, and I was intrigued since I’d never had them, and the fact that you eat the whole thing, peel and all.

Food 3 550

Plus they are just so damn cute 😉

Food 3 546

So the salad disappeared, as did the granola bar. I think I ate maybe 5 grapes and a kumquat, and I was done with fruit. I don’t know if it was just because I was full, or I wasn’t feeling fruit, but I packed it up and brought it home.

And if you are wondering about my thoughts on the kumquat – I like them! I don’t eat alot of citrus fruit because I loathe the pith. I cannot eat any of it – it makes me gag. So as you can imagine, if I wanted to eat an orange, it would take me forever. I’m not willing to put in that much work just to eat an orange. But kumquats? You just pop the whole thing in your mouth. They are a little sour, but I like sour. A fun little fruit – you should try them out if you can.

While enjoying my lunch I received a call on my cell – work wanted me to come in for 4 hours. I guess someone called in sick, and since they messed up my schedule this week (only 1 shift), I was the obvious person to call. I knew I would be tired when I got home, but figured 4 hours (and the cash earned) wouldn’t kill me, so I agreed.

Food science was as exciting as ever, as was my transit ride home. When I walked in the door, I was hankering for a snack.

Food 3 558

No, I didn’t eat my fruit. In all honesty, I had a total craving for fries. But we don’t tend to keep those around. It just so happened mom had made a frozen pizza for lunch, so I snagged a couple leftover squares so I wouldn’t starve at work – with a little caffeine for good measure 😉

Work was sloooooooow. That’s all I have to say about that.

Although, speaking of work – remember the interview I had on Sunday at Thrifty Foods? Well, I know they contacted at least one of my references (family friend – she called my mom to tell her about it). From what she said, they were impressed with my interview. So keep your fingers crossed – I should know by the end of the week!

Anyways, I made my way home, and of course, dinner was ready and waiting for me. Thanks mom!

Food 3 567

A little roasted pork tenderloin.

Food 3 564

Baked potato, which I topped with all sorts of good stuff – sour cream, swiss cheese, garlic powder, black pepper, and a touch o’ butter.

Food 3 565

A spoonful of apple/craisin/raisin salad.

Food 3 562

And a pile of green peas.

Food 3 566

Who doesn’t like coming home to dinner?

Food 3 560

I shovelled that down while watching the rest of the Canucks hockey game. Again, my boys were victorious. Should we start planning the Stanley Cup parade route now? 😉

That about sums up my day. I really should have gotten started on some biochemistry studying, but who wants to do that at 9:30 pm? There’s always tomorrow. Which is coming soon, so I’m off to bed. Night!
