The One With the Change of Plans

As I mentioned this morning, we had a crazy ass wind and rain storm overnight…so when I got up this morning I had a bad feeling that the plans I had with my friend Sarah to go check out the Pumpkin People in the Valley were going to be cancelled.  We chatted, waited an hour, chatted again and decided to beg off. 

So I made coffee…

And had zucchini bread

Funny enough, an hour later the sun came out and today ended up being gorgeous!

So I ate lunch…leftover stir-fry

Then went for a walk on the BLT Trail… what a beautiful day!

076

Pretty trees…

078 083

Long shadows…

091092

Peek-a-boo!

087 

Refreshed with a smoothie in a bottle

And snacked on brie and crackers

Sarah and I had planned to go for a sushi dinner, but after a cozy day off neither of us felt like getting cleaned up enough for a restaurant (and talked on the phone so long we missed our window of opportunity!).  I did a raid of the pantry and freezer and wound up with a strange combo for dinner.

Amy’s burrito.

105

With salsa and plain yogurt

106

And roasted beets

108

In yogurt & dill sauce

Then another evil pb pumpkin tried to steal the remote.  But I took care of him.  bwahahaha.  nom nom nom.

And now there is tea, Amazing Race, and the finale of SYTYCD Canada (GO Jayme Rae!) (yes, I know the odds are on Tara-Jean…).  All in all a great Sunday!

First you introduced me to Brussels Sprouts and now you're gonna make me try beets, eh?

Hmmm ... maybe not. But I could totally go for one of those ebil pumpkins!

Wishing you a "Happy Monday"! =)

Yesterday ended up being a beautiful day here too. I was finally able to get out and get started on tidying away the garden and I thoroughly enjoyed being out in the sunshine!

I have to say I think the order should be:

1. Tara Jean
2. Everett
3. Vincent
4. Jayme Rae

but I really do like them all, Jayme Rae has a sass about her that I just love.

the pictures of your walk are stunning! so beautiful
