Ah. Yes.

Hmmm.
Yes.
Well...

After being an MSc slave all day saturday, I had a lovely walk at sunset on saturday, munching on sugar snap peas and sipping beer from a coffee mug while sitting on a big old rock in the middle of wandering along the river. Odd? Yes, but it was the perfect reward for a long hard workday on a saturday...I'm so glad it's warming up and we can go for walks again. It is super squishy out, but that's OK. It's welly time!

Lovely days off...sundays are sacred to me now that I've ramped up into insanity of work+MSc+pretending to keep it together. I make a point of working full saturdays on my MSc, so it's the day a week I get to spend with with J. Not that we do lots or anything spectacular as a rule-it's just the one day for him & me. No stress...just us. It was part of my deal with myself...that and eating well and working out at least 3 times a week. I snack my stress away, so I've gotta at least try and fight back. So far so good. My knee has not given me any problems since I started up workouts again last week. We shall see. I'm very hopeful I can get up to speed soon...

On sunday we went out to see "Walking With Dinosaurs" which was really spectacular. The dinosaur automatons and puppets were incredibly real. I loved it...made me feel like a kid again. Then we fired up the BBQ...cuz it was only -5C. Warm enough to melt snow in the sunshine. Lovely...burgers and tin foil potatoes ...mmm...I heart my BBQ.

I'm hoping it's warm enough on the weekend coming up that I can actually sand my cupboard doors outside and not fill the basement up with sawdust. I've moved my workstation downstairs now and the living room seems *huge* now that there isn't a giant table in the middle of it. It's lovely. I finally got my kitchen put back together on the weekend as well...I've purged about 3 boxes of "junk" and know where everything is now...so the doors should really go back on. Slowly the house is returning to normal. So very soothing to not see boxes of junk and random tools and tables of things in your house...

Aaaahhhh.

Open liquor in public?

It wasn't open, it was in a coffee mug...
I know. Classy.
I just wanted to have a beer and watch the sunset...this worked perfectly :)

It was a coffee mug. It had coffee in it. Wink-wink, nudge-nudge.
