Another Snow Day!

10 Feb

WooHoo! Another snow day! And in February no less. Yay!

I mean sure, it took way longer to get home from work than normal thanks to people not knowing how to drive in snow, but when the snow is this pretty does that really matter?

Nope. It doesn’t matter one little bit! …might have if I’d had to pee or something when trapped in my suv but I didn’t so all was good lol πŸ˜‰

Hope you’re enjoying your winter weather, whatever that may be!

Retail Therapy

9 Feb

Ah yes, retail therapy, that thing we all hope will help us feel better but actually doesn’t.

Well… at least my feet will look good! πŸ˜›

 

Snow Day

4 Feb

Proof we had a snow day in February. Well, our version of a snow day anyways lol We are a tad spoiled over here weather wise. While the rest of the country freezes and gets buried under inches of snow this is all we got and it was gone by the next day. *shrug* Whatcha gonna do?

Cat Day

24 Jan

Today was my one day off this week and I chose to spend the day being lazy, who says I don’t know how to live my best life? πŸ˜‰

You may be thinking a lazy day meant I slept in but you’d be wrong. πŸ˜› I was actually up early, distressingly early, le sigh, but that’s ok because it meant I had ample time for a nap on the living room chair and there’s just something about a good nap that is so decadent feeling.

Not only did I have a late morning nap but I also dozed off in the afternoon, and almost again in the evening. I forced myself to get up when I started to doze off that last time because I do have to be able to sleep tonight ya know. Today may be lazy but tomorrow is me working both jobs and hopefully squeezing in a workout so ya know, the total opposite of today.

Guess which day I like better! lol

When I was forcing myself to not nap that third time I looked at the cat and realized I was living my cat’s best life. This is basically how he spends his day, minus watching Netflix that is. He naps, gets up to go to the bathroom or get something to eat, then relaxes, then falls in to another napping session, aaaaand repeat.

nap

Pro-Level napping!

So, my lazy day was actually me doing my absolute best imitation of my cat.

Man do I want my cat’s life! lol

The only difference was by the end of the day I did a bit of decluttering in the bathroom and I caught up on some work emails because I won’t have time tomorrow before job number 1 starts. So I guess I didn’t quite have a work free day today, but most of it was free from work and since I spent most of it (or so it seems) in various levels of unconsciousness I really can’t complain.

 

Sick Days

7 Jan

Staring down a serving of NyQuil is like staring down a shot of Tequila. You know it isn’t going to taste great, but it’ll help you attain your immediate goal, and then you’ll pass out.

sick day 2

We are 7 days into 2019, how is your New Year going so far?

Mine was going great until the evening of day 3 when I went from healthy to sick in the span of around 20 minutes. It is amazing how quickly your body can go from healthy to fevered and sick isn’t it? I assume the pesky germs that took me down had been fighting my immune system for a couple days, silently sneaking through my body and killing white blood cells whenever there was an opportunity, and when there was a weak spot in my defences they charged the wall and squashed a whole lot more of those white blood cells, thereby winning the battle against my immune system.

The battle but not the war!

With the aid of vitamins, Airborne (I swear by that stuff), a lot of sleeping, chicken noodle soup, and of course NyQuil, I am on the mend.

However, having four of the seven days of 2019 being sick days means I don’t have a whole lot of interesting things to write about. Le sigh.

I know it is old news by now but my New Years Eve was a lot of fun, I won tickets to a party downtown and it turned out to be pretty good. There was live entertainment, alcohol, a great view of the fireworks, and it was all inside a not overly crowded space so I didn’t even have to freeze my butt off at midnight. I think a good New Years Eve is mostly dependent on who you spend it with, if you’re with someone you want to be with and you have fun with, odds are you’ll have a good time. We could have done pretty much anything and had fun, it was just a happy perk we had such a good spot for the fireworks. πŸ™‚

Then it was a couple days off from work, which I thoroughly enjoyed, and juuust before I was to head back to work I got sick.

So ya see, not much to talk about.

My mom reminded me to make this dish she used to make me when I was a kid and sick. It is warm milk poured over bread that has been cut in to bite size squares and sprinkled with sugar.

sick day 3

It is so simple, and yet so comforting. It however doesn’t photograph all that well lol I pretty much lose my appetite when sick so when she mentioned this dish I thought it would be ok to make, even if it is just carbs and sugar lol As with all dishes that my mom makes, her version is better, but this wasn’t so bad.

I’m hoping it isn’t raining tomorrow so I can go for a bit of a walk, get some fresh air in to these lungs, and get out of this apartment for a bit, I’m soooo bored, and yet, randomly napping throughout the day, so not quite fit for jumping back in to the swing of things just yet. Soon though, and then hopefully I’ll have more interesting things to blog about!

Hope your 2019 is starting off healthier than mine! πŸ˜€

Merry Christmas!Β 

If you don’t celebrate Christmas than have a kick-ass December 25th just because lol

May you all have a happy day filled with love, time with people you care about, cuddles from your pets, and a feeling of contentment and joy.

And if all that is too much to ask for, just try to have a lovely day, however you choose to accomplish that.Β  πŸ™‚

Some Edmonton Stuff

24 Dec

I’ve been in Edmonton for 7 days and have a smattering of random pictures I thought I’d share. None are all that special but ya know, it’s my blog and I can put on it what I like…assuming the cat approves that is! πŸ˜‰

I’ve been to West Edmonton Mall I think four times now? It is one of my happy places lol Especially at Christmas, with all the decorations and sales…I try my best to ignore the crowds and line-ups. Sort of my own version of rose coloured glasses, only they are covered in glitter from wrapping paper. πŸ˜‰

Some decorations from WEM. There are way more but taking pictures in the mall basically labels you as a tourist so I only took a couple.

Apologies for the glare on the glass when I took the picture. That is the empty wave pool at the Waterpark (inside WEM). I’ve never seen it empty like that, it was so weird.

There was a petting zoo in the mall on one of my trips and I couldn’t resist pictures of the goats and the one and only pig. I find pigs adorable and wish I could’ve gotten closer but I don’t go in to petting zoos since I have no desire to smell like barnyard animals.

Cotton candy shaped to look like a unicorn. Why? Because I thought it was cute lol

December 23rd is my birthday and I was lucky enough to get two desserts! If I’m not careful I’m going to have to be rolled through the airport on my way back lol

My mom made a Victoria Sponge for me, one of my favourite cakes. πŸ™‚ It is two layers of sponge cake with jam and whipped cream in the middle. Oh, and topped with icing sugar. Simple yet lovely.

Then when I was out with friends we went to a restaurant and I got some chocolate, because what is a birthday without chocolate I ask you?

And yes, I ate every bite. Yum!

I had a day spent with my nephews, one at a time since they are not really at ages where the same activity will do for both of them. With the younger one we built a gingerbread train. The original plan was to ice it blue because he wanted it to look like Thomas the Tank Engine but once he tasted the icing he wanted minimal decorating because he thought he’d be able to eat any left over icing lol Kids right? So the icing eating didn’t happen, but the decorating kinda did…

All in all it has been days filled with simple fun, more focused on time spent with friends and family than anything else, which is exactly how it should be. πŸ™‚
