Gettin’ Better

So…within minutes of today’s earlier post I found that damn document I was looking for.  Right where I put it apparently!  After that, things started coming together.

  • went out to drop tax papers off at accountant
  • stopped at mailbox and found insurance papers I’d been worried about
  • got iced coffee
  • came home and got some work done without having to worry about personal shiz
  • even found time to look at a few condo listings online
  • had a nice chat with my Mama

Phew!

For an afternoon snack I busted into the bag of Cinnamon Sugar Pita Crisps the nice people at In Snax sent me.  They saw me chatting about loving their other flavour and told me I just HAD to try these ones.

Well OK!  Twist my arm.

Definitely yummy.  I compare the cinnamon and sugariness to that of the Riceworks chips of the same flavour.  And we all know I can plow through a bag of those all by myself.  I had to practice restraint with these ones.  :)

Come dinner time, my leftover Chicken Souvlaki was calling to me!  With it’s two sad and lonely lemony potato buddies.

I added a side of steamed broccoli with lemon juice to round out the meal.

After dinner I headed out to meet Lesley and Lex for a Starbucks chat date.  Um, three hours and no photos later we finished up.  hehe.  I enjoyed a grande non-fat vanilla Rooibos tea latte and a couple of yummy samples that came around.

Who knew they made tasty lemon loaf?  I didn’t!

Oh, and the highlight of the day?  The thoughtful gift I received from Arron’s parents!  They have just recently returned from extended travels around India and Asia and brought me back this lovely scarf!!

The note they sent along with it indicates that they picked this up in Kuala Lumpur…the country of knock-offs…so this is a genuine fake Louis Vuitton.  haha. 

I won’t tell if you don’t! :)

Hi Jaime

The mug is on the way...US Postal Service stamped "fragile" on the package - we'll see if it arrives intact. (Don't be alarmed by the wrapping job I did; there's so much duct tape, I'm sure it's waterproof!)

Every time I see Vanilla Rooibos in Starbucks, I think of you. I'm planning on trying it soon to see what it's like.
