I'm working hard to clear my desk. I'm off next week. I can't remember when I last had an entire week off work. Tomorrow will be all about shopping and packing for a week up north, enjoying the solitude of a cottage on a lake, surrounded by a lot of nature.
As I knew would happen, my commitment to a Week In The Life has fizzled. I haven't given up, and I expect the weekend will provide new motivation, but my real camera hasn't been picked up since Monday, and there's only so many phone pictures I can take of my desk and my kitchen. Life is dull when I'm at work. Period.
Monday and Tuesday here.
Wednesday and Thursday more or less:
Fast food at my desk.
Smoothies to compensate.
Garbage day. Yes neighbours, I take photos of my garbage. I'm cool like that.
School uniform shopping.
Late night reading and cereal. Cereal with marshmallows to be exact.
Super salad. To make up for the marshmallows.
Of course, there was time for the wonders of the internet:
This letter, the one I wish I'd written my kids this summer.
Beautiful Quebec City. I'd like to plan a weekend there this fall.
This Tofino Gooey Butter Cake. Like the St. Louis version, but not.
This Bourbon Walnut Pound Cake. Holy moly.
And these Cinnamon Glazed Zucchini Bars. You know how I love to sneak healthy things into baked goods :)
Happy Friday, happy weekend!
