my day off work

when i was little i thought people only worked monday-friday with weekends off. 

once i actually entered the work force i realized that that wasnt neccessarily true at all. 

i work weekends (minus sundays) and i get random days off in the week.. like tuesdays.  not a big deal to most people working i know. but today i decided to document what i did today. just because my blog has been so boring lately. 

so today.. i woke up. checked out angie's blog and then went upstairs to eat a bagel and watch some price is right and what not to wear with erika.  then i made erika come with me and run errands. 

first stop the mail box. 

then to the asian friendly bank.   basically we live in chinatown.  the signs even have translations.

then we drove more

to one of my favorite places. the library. 
we looked through the books. reading the back covers and judging books completely by their covers.  erika and i both admit to doing this. 
we got some books that *hopefully* are winners. you can never really know forsure. 
we got home and i noticed these little flowers blooming outside the front door.

and i ate one of these cookies. 
dad keeps talking about how mom forgot to cook them and that he will probably get sick because he ate them raw. yes-- they are no bake cookies. and yes -- he does think he's funny. haha
then i got down to reading and studying this. 
all day i wore this hoodie-- because 1) its cold in canada and 2) i miss byu. 

after i made some important phone calls and now i'm updating my blog 
i have plans to dive into one of those books i got 
and then try to avoid candi when she gets home from work and wants to work out

just kidding. 
 but i don't feel like working out. 
she will make me... i am so lucky to have her around :)

what a great day off.. and its only 3pm

That is a GOOD day! I would have liked Tuesday off from work...

And I must admit, I was smiling when I read that your Dad said that your Mom forgot to bake the cookies...I would have been there for your Dad...

Did Candi find you? If so, I hope the work out was a good one.

Let us know how your book from the library was...I know that the other book you read and studied is a good one, I've heard good things about it.

It was good to see that you're alive and well!

YAYY!!! it's been a while since you posted!

I think dad's you forgot to bake these joke is funny!!! :)

It's nice to see pictures of the old stompin' grounds!! Is there still snow on the ground?

I always judge books by their covers. It's hard not to!

Let us know how your book is!

Sounded like a good day.

I always wondered about those no bake cookies myself.

I had good timing on the weekend visiting with Candi...she didn't make me work out with her...she didn't even make me study with her.

Alana, good to see you are doing some good reading.

I forgot to mention that I love the pictures of the flowers outside your front door!

Sammy Jane said...

I love this. But it makes me miss you so much! What books did you get? I am reading one that I think you would really like.

Canada seems wonderful... and I'm so glad it is Asian friendly. It was one of my concerns.

I miss you! I love you! We need to chat! :(
