Isn't he so adorable?

It's amazing what some yellow food colouring, coconut, chocolate chips, and a cut up dried apricot will do to improve the look of one's baking :D

Kitten Cam

Thursday, March 29, 2012


A live link to a webcam of a mama cat and her 5 kittens. They were born on March 16 so they are still just little but even over the past few days I've been watching, they've grown. The gentleman is fostering the mama and kittens until they are old enough to be adopted.

I'm completely addicted to watching them, it's a good thing my work computer doesn't allow video streaming!!


Plumbing issues

Tuesday, March 13, 2012

Y'know what's awesome! Dealing with plumbing issues at 9:30 at night. Yay!

Ugh. Actually, I was taking a shower this morning and had just finished when Mark banged on the door to tell me to shut the water off because the basement was flooding. When we saw it wasn't going up anymore, we decided to leave it and see if it dropped on its own. The weather got incredibly nice incredibly quickly so almost all the snow is melted so the city sewer lines are very full so we figured that was what the problem was. It had dropped a little by lunchtime and a little more by after work so I went to yoga class and then when I got back at about 7:30 we took the shop vac and started hauling water up and dumping it outside. When we got it to below the floor level but couldn't get it any lower no matter how much we hauled, we called a plumber. He's downstairs right now using a ginormous drain cleaning snake thing and fixing the problem (we hope). It's pretty reasonable too, he quoted $250 for the fix.

And I'm really happy that I'll get to have a shower tomorrow morning :D

AND I still did Coach Nicole's Butt Blasting Video. Day 2 of the streak! emoticon

Butt Blasting workout

Monday, March 12, 2012

I used to do Coach Nicole's Butt Blasting workout everyday. It's 6 minutes long so it's easy to fit in at any time of the day. It's been over a year since the last time I did it and I just did it again tonight. Yikes! My bum hurts! Obviously my butt needs some work done. I'm going to make a streak of doing this workout every day.



Steak of the Month club

Friday, March 09, 2012

Just signed up. Normally the steak of the month is delivered on the first Wednesday of the month but because they deliver every week, we're going to be starting for March and they will deliver it next Wednesday.

I'm excited. We've gotten meat from this place before and it's been tasty so I know it will be good. Mark is having iron level issues so eating steak 2-4 times a month (some of the steaks are ginormous so we'll be cutting them down for more meals) will be good for him and my iron levels are on the lower side of normal (not out of normal but at the bottom range) so it will be good for me too.

March is 4 - 10oz Top Sirloin Steaks. Mmmm steak... emoticon
