Accelerated living

Life got a little crazy since I last blogged....

I was given a complimentary ticket to a phenomenal Global Leadership Summit and it was amazing, but it meant 2 whole days there, from 9 am - 5:30 pm. Worth every second of it!
I was going to write an article on it for the hosts who are local and then got introduced to the Canadian executive and he wanted the article too, and THEN they introduced me to the INTERNATIONAL guy and HE wanted my article too! I am just floored! I get to write for a GLOBAL publication! wow! I wish I had a flash on my camera, I would have taken a photo of the mango sushi I had for lunch! O MY! Heaven on a plate!


Then on Saturday we went down to Niagara on the Lake and were there for the 2011 Solo Swims Plaque unveiling . The plaque contains names of swimmers who have crossed Lake Ontario. We went down as a family and it was cold and blustery, but we met afterwards at the restaurant and DH and I shared a meal, ( Vegetarian). We celebrated with Jade Scognamillo who is the youngest to have ever swum Lake Ontario.
Here is a pic of Jade with Mayor Dave Eke.

Yesterday was church and then I did some baking ( blackbean cake ) and cooked some polenta! My new best thing! It was delicious! I made it with pesto and tomatoes ( slices) and mozzarella on top= baked it in the oven...delicious, Sorry no pic...we were rushing to finish dinner before " Family movie night" started.

Off to meet a friend for coffee now and then back to the grindstone.

I have 3 deadlines this week - all articles and we start swimming TONIGHT!
I will have to find my swimsuit!

Weigh in was good on Friday but after a hectic weekend I am not sure what it will be on Wed.

Here's to making healthy choices!
