I love my mornings!

I love waking up before anyone else and enjoying my cup of coffee on the weekends. Its so peaceful and relaxing.. just the perfect way to start a day.

We are heading over to Dan’s parents this afternoon they are leaving for Mexico today or tomorrow. Should be exciting for them. They go every year I think. Hopefully some day I’ll be able to be like that and just take off and leave for  a month somewhere warm. I would settle for a week now though ha ha…

Actually I’m not sure I could be away from my new laptop for more than a day.. I love it so much its exactly what I wanted and it has all my programs on it… its absolutely wonderful! And its all mine! Its like that piece of me I’ve been missing is back!

So I jumped on my wii fit this morning just to do the body test. I’m so proud of myself! In the past year, I have lost 20 lbs just by eating healthy going for walks and being happy. Sleeping at night and being up in the morning. I’m honestly so proud of myself! I feel better, I have more energy.. its just unbelievable!

Maybe someday soon I’ll be who I want to be and look like what I want to look like… 😀

another night alone

well.. my hockey billet ended up being gone last night to an away hockey game so I had the night to myself… and the dilemma began.. what to make myself for supper?

I thought I would just browse through that new cookbook I picked up and I found  a recipe for roasted vegetables.

Roasted Vegetables
1 tbsp olive oil
2 tsp soya sauce
2 cloves garlic
1 tsp fresh ginger
2 large carrots chopped
4 medium potatoes chopped
1 small onion chopped
fresh ground black pepper

Mix the olive oil, soya sauce, garlic and ginger in a bowl, add the chopped vegetables and mix until evenly coated. Pour into a baking dish and bake for 45 mins uncovered in a 425F oven. Stir once or twice.

Thats it so simple. Except I forgot about mine in the oven and burnt it around the edges and cooked  it all a bit too long. But it was still good. I ate it anyway..

What else did I do yesterday… nothing really played wii fit. I love my wii fit. I usually do a couple mini games and then I go into my personal trainer part and do the exercises for my hips and belly. I have been trying to stay up until 10 or so. I find I have a better sleep and don’t wake up as much during the night if I go to bed later.. the problem is just finding something to do to keep myself occupied. And there is absolutely nothing on tv these days.

I could have taken my tree down last night, but I think it looks so pretty up still I didn’t have the heart to take it down yet. Maybe this weekend I’ll take it down and get Dan to take the tree to his parents farm to throw it out. Dan comes back from the hockey games today. I guess Canada lost, I didn’t watch the game and I had to desire to either. I am so sick of hockey I can’t wait for it to be over!

sweet sweet nothing..

Well, its saturday and I’m up early again as usual. Only one more day with the hockey billet. Yesterday was such a crappy day I just didn’t even feel like cooking when I was done work, so we picked up KFC and had a grease feast when we got home. Thanks Dan for helping me clean too! We got everything done in about an hour… cleaned the bathroom, swept and washed the floors and wiped down the counters, and cleaned the bedroom up. Today I just have to do laundry and make bread.. but at the moment I don’t feel like doing anything but sitting here and doing sweet sweet nothing. I have the fireplace channel going on tv and the tree lights on… its just so relaxing I don’t know why I would even consider getting up. And this coffee just absolutely hits the spot.

So, my bad news… lets recap from yesterday.. remember I was saying I would get my car back and it was going to be a wonderful day? Well.. turns out there was more damage than expected.. and 3 days of straightening out my side panel, they are hoping to paint next week so who knows.. I probably won’t have it back until we are back from the little bit of a Christmas break that I get is done.  And then my make makeup exploded all over my makeup bag. I’m pretty sure I was hungover from the home made wine I had the night before, and work was so extremely busy.. but hey at least its over now. I just am so excited to get my car back! I have total faith in Chris that they do an absolutely amazing job on my car!

Well, thats it I guess.. I really need to do some research on the whole yeast rising thing I think, and then to make the bread!  I WILL MASTER IT!

*** UPDATE***

MY BREAD ACTUALLY WORKED! YAY!
