Going back to work on such a beautiful day was a chore….I can’t lie! I did make myself a superb breakfast, though!
-1 cup water -1/3 cup Sunrise grain blend -cinnamon, vanilla, salt -2 chopped strawberries -2 tbsp of Flanigan Farms trail mix -splash vanilla flavoured coffee creamer This particular blend has SO much texture to it. I enjoyed it immensely!
As always when coming back after a few days off, there was a pile of paperwork on my desk that needed to be sorted through. That took up a good chunk of the morn! My co-worker and I went for our daily walk around the block at 10:30 and when we came back I ate my mix of parnoosh dates and dried apricots; The dates are almost gone and I’m not gonna buy anymore for a bit so I opted to pick up some of the apricots for a change. I always forget how much I like these!
I’m on early lunch today so I headed out to the gym at 11:30. It was WAY too hot in there today at 77*F. I had to walk the last 3 minutes of my run because I was starting to feel physically sick. Not fun times. I think I probably sweat out every toxin that dared to be in my system, though!

I brought a great big salad for lunch; This guy has half a savoy cabbage, a tomato, a ¼ cup of lentils, a bit of leftover pork chop and cranberry walnut Gorgonzola dressing. Later on in the afternoon I ate my honey crisp apple…. Sweet and delish! Can’t wait for them to come into full season.
Now for a wee bit of bad news. My MIL’s baby horse passed away later Sunday afternoon. :) Poor little guy just couldn ’t fight the illness that took over his little body. So sad. Buuuut ….that same evening a new female baby horse was born! This is the second girl with the first being born late last week. Nature can do some odd things sometimes!
So, I just gotta tell you about something that I've been really wanting to try and finally found at Whole Foods yesterday. The product is Artisana Cacao Bliss which I've seen featured on many a blog. It looks fabulous so you can imagine my glee at spotting it on the shelf. Glee turned into horror when I saw the price tag sat at $17.99 for an 8oz jar! WTF??? Who can afford that? Not me! Have any of my Canadian readers seen this at a more decent price anywhere? Please say yes!
I baked up some salmon for dinner tonight along with steamed green beans and a sweet potato that saw some microwave and oven action; I haven't had anything for dessert yet, but I have something in mind that I will be enjoying on the deck shortly. Tonight my only plans are relaxing in the sunshine as they're predicting rain right up until Saturday. Ugh. Hope the sun is shining where you are!
