A few days in and my goals are going well!

 COOKING

In the past few days I’ve made:

-pumpkin pancakes with chocolate chips ( billion of them, I made 6 batches last night and only realized today was Mardi Gras sometime around 2pm)
-couscous with roasted vegetables, kalamata olives and rosemary
-cauliflower, sweet potato and butternut squash soup
-cauliflower (it was on sale) filled macaroni and cheese (very sneaky, you can’t see it, not that anyone here minds)

READING

I’ve been consistently reading 10 or more minutes per night.  I finished a book over the weekend and was contemplating what to read next when I got an email from Jeff telling me that he left a couple of books (french ones!) in my mailbox!  Hurray!  So last night I started reading L’Étranger by Camus.  I’m only a few pages in (2 hours of cooking pancakes really tired me out) but so far it’s going pretty well.  The writing is very simple so it’s easy to follow and it will likely be good practice at acclimatizing me to the grammar.

SHOPPING LOCALLY

 I haven’t done any non-grocery shopping since my post but I have been thinking about locally owned places to shop.  I was reminded of my recent shopping experience at Warren’s (a store that only has 3 locations – all in Ottawa so I ASSUME it’s local)  I had such great service there (at two of the locations in fact) that I wanted to either call or send an email to their upper management.  Well there website has NO such contact info!!!  That’s very disappointing to me.  I guess I could call the stores and try to get the info but what a hassle for praise!

ARTS AND CRAFTS

I cut Bobby’s valentines into hearts… that counts right?

On this day:

In 2009 – I purged my old clothes
In 2008 – 
In 2007 – My first and last time watching Grey’s Anatomy
In 2006 – f-locked x1
In 2005 – vacation

    Yay! It’s nice that someone else is getting things done. I need to be getting more done. I haven’t read in the past few nights, but that’s because I chose to try and catch up on reading/writing blogs. I had a friend complain that I hadn’t updated my “kindler, gentler” blogspot blog šŸ™‚
    I read The Stranger in high school. I really liked the book. Of course, I read it in English, so I cheated. If I tried to read it in French, it would take me 900 years.
    I can’t believe they don’t have contact info on the grocery store page! Insanity.

    Have him paint or draw some spcial pictures for Molly’s room. Frame them and hang them up to make him feel like he has a special place in the family and the new baby’s life. Also I recoment the book ‘I’m a big brother now’ by Joanna Cole. We had the sister version for Suzie and we read it to her every night for the last few weeks before DJ got here. Then we used the words fromthe books in our house the first while so she was familiar with what was going on. Big help. Hugs and don’t worry, it will all work out!
