Happy Canada Day!

It's not only Canada Day, but it's also the store's first year anniversary so I'm at work today for the celebration. It's quiet now though since it's the end of the day so I thought I'd get a quick post done. What did everyone else do for Canada Day?

I've missed my blog. I've missed posting photos of meals we've made, which doesn't mean that I haven't stopped taking photos, I just haven't posted any. 

As usual my life seems incredibly busy. I know we all have busy lives, but with the world cup (not related to the cup in the photo) going on, my life seems even busier now (I just can't miss a game). the cup in the above photo. db got me this blender cup for my birthday. I was so excited by it, it was a bit ridiculous really. Who gets excited over a blender cup? Apparently, I do. Exciting life, I know. 

The base of my blender screws onto the cup and I can blend up my Vega smoothie then put the cup's lid on and I'm ready to go. It's pretty fabulous. I did a test run this morning, and was thrilled with not having to clean the blender (or I should say, leave it in the sink filled with water until one of us gets home from work to clean it).

Now onto other things...

It's been nice to have a couple of soccer free days so I can get other things done like laundry, and a little gardening (very little -- I planted a few new plants in the front yard when I came home from my run on Tuesday. I just couldn't leave them in their nursery pots any longer). The weather has been a bit crappy. db and I haven't used the patio at all this month so I haven't felt the need to add to my pots out there. It still looks okay, but not the way I'd like it to look. 


Since I had to work on Wednesday (my birthday), we've decided to celebrate on Friday with a trip to Bowen just as we did last year. However, this year we plan to hike Mt Gardner (please, co-operate weather) and then go to dinner at the Tuscan restaurant where we went last year as well. My family won't be here, but I'll be thinking of them and planning our upcoming vacation to N.B. I can't wait!

I am so behind on your blog its not even funny. It's not that I don't love you, sp! I am just...distracted.

OK, I will check out the store you are now at, and BTW, you will be so proud of me, I bought a vegan handbag from Haiku! It's gorgeous! I am not a handbag person at all, but I have to say I feel pretty snazzy with this one. Here is the site, if you haven't heard of the company:
