Day 114 – April 2nd, 2011

Today started on a sour note — my favourite instructor wasn’t at the gym. I left the gym early as I was hoping to go strawberry picking with EE. Unfortunately, the cable guy came late so we were unable to go. She and A came over to hang out at the pool, and after a nap, I joined her by the pool after a nap. I asked EE what I should bring for movie night, and she asked me to bake something.

After trying to figure out what I wanted to bake on such short notice, I decided on chocolate cupcakes. I was running out of time, so I used cream cheese frosting I had for your baked goods.

I decorated them with frosting roses. They looked so purdy ๐Ÿ™‚

WT arrived shortly after I did and with his lead, we put together some jalapeno poppers.. They tuned out really well and were gone shortly after they came out of the oven so I didn’t take a photo.

Little A stole EE's chair while enjoying a cupcake

However, karma isn't nice if you're not nice, and she dropped the cupcake. The 5 second rule applied and she had a fit taking off the leaves. We ended up giving her another one anyway.

While we waited for some people, we enjoyed strawberry daiquiris and the Kings of Leon's DVD

and pet Roxy

Finally, everyone was present — EE & A, WT, AB+TG, JV+RI, LT (hadn’t seen her in forever!) and M “Beef” D (don’t know if you remember her… she was in kickball) and it was time for the feature film

Howard The Duck

Oh man.. that was one terrible movie!! I don’t know how many times I groaned. Glad I’d gone this long without seeing it ๐Ÿ˜›

I went home not too long after the movie was over. I was wiped out!


Day 91 – March 10, 2011

Last night, Dusty was scratching at my door, so I opened it and the cats ran in. They both jumped on my bed, and Eddie wanted me to pet him. This morning, my alarm went off and I turned on the radio. Eddie came running over and wanted me to pet him. I pet him for a while and he fell asleep on me. Since I hadn’t been up yet, I really had to go to the bathroom, but someone wouldn’t get up…

I went into the office but I didn’t prep my lunch to bring in.. it’s ok because I had some Chi’lantro BBQ!

Tried the burger this time.. not as good as the tacos

As I left the building, I saw the pretty purple flowers.. even more signs of spring ๐Ÿ˜€

Purdy flowers

Oy.. I really need to figure out how to post photos so they’re not so desaturated ๐Ÿ˜ฆ It wasn’t as bad on Flickr I don’t think.. I’ll have to play around.

The rest of the day was pretty uneventful… could’ve used a margarita so I’m gonna have one tomorrow instead ๐Ÿ˜€


Day 90 – March 9, 2011

This morning, it was almost impossible to get up.. I shouldn’t have napped for so long yesterday. The cats were very playful though

Dusty got to play with his fave toy while Eddie was grounded.. look at those claws!

So glad you finally got interwebz in your trailer.. I bet you never thought you’d see yourself on the blog ๐Ÿ˜€ Glad I got you ๐Ÿ˜›

Making your debut!

The UPS man came around 3 I think to drop off a package.. it sounded like he was in a rush, I heard him running up the stairs and he yelled “UPS” before he knocked on the door while still going up the stairs. Lookie what I got

Look at the pretty purse ๐Ÿ˜€

Such a pretty colour ๐Ÿ˜€

Oh but look! It's a CAMERA bag!!!

I was going to put my wide angle lens but I forgot to grab it before I took the picture. ย I need to charge the flash batteries so I can take nicer pictures. I love my Sony camera and all, but I love the control I have with a DSLR. Thank you baby ๐Ÿ™‚

Must rest.. it’s only Wednesday. But yay for day 90… ๐Ÿ˜€


Day 83 – March 2nd, 2011

This morning, I went for a walk/jog before work. Later on, I went to the Apple store to have someone look at the Macbook to see if it’s the NVIDIA video card problem. ย Wheneverย I walk in there, it makes me wish I were a millionaire…

Ahhhh.. such a sweet setup

It also made me wish I were more organized

After I got the wonderful news that it was still under warranty and they would be fixing it, I went to pick up some DVDs from work and shipping materials to ship to my boss. He’s the one that’s going to be doing the video. Then I headed home. The cats were being lazy as usual…

He's still loving the snuggie plus a little sunshine

The sunset was beautiful (and more colourful)

In the evening, I finally remembered to synchronize my heart rate monitor watch with the online system (hadn’t done that in a while). I usually do it at work because it has to be on a Windows machine and I only use the Windows laptop for work. When it’s synchronizing, the watch makes a noise kind of like a modem. Someone came running over to see what was making the noise…

Intently watching

Dusty hasn’t been doing anything too exciting… his eyes are looking better. Perhaps his allergies have subdued! Poor kitty. I stillย harassย him with hugs tho ๐Ÿ˜€

We’re almost half way there.. and we’re definitely getting closer to the weekend ๐Ÿ˜€


Day 82 – March 1st, 2011

Yay!! It’s March ๐Ÿ˜€ The day started off with Eddie taking a short nap on me while I should’ve gotten up…

Who can resist this cutie pie?

After he slept enough, he ran to the window & monitor the activities outdoors

I went to work, then I went to the gym followed by a trip to the grocery store. I was talking to my mom on the phone and she said “frijol de soya” (meaning edamame) ย and I thought she said “frijol de olla.” ย She said she’d never heard that term before but I knew I had.. I went to pick up some beans and saw the label.

Mmm Frijol De Olla

Way too late I remembered that I hadn’t backed up my Macbook so I had to take it apart, take out the hard drive, plug it into the other Macbook, and then put the Macbook together again.. Off to bed late again!
