What a long day! No joke, my 8-5 work day felt like an 8-8 hour day AT LEAST. Needless to say, I was pretty happy when 5 came around.
I had a hot date with my girl, Chelsea!! 🙂
She was pretty happy to see me today – and vice versa. The best end to a long day at the office is one spent at the farm. I spent some quality time with Chels taking my time to groom, and then I tacked up and was ready to ride! Safety First!
We had a fantastic ride and workout. I hadn’t ridden Chels since last Tuesday due to her getting new shoes, and it felt great to workout together again.
And just FYI….. this is why I buy my riding jeans at Value Village for $5! 😉 The aftermath of Chelsea using my leg as a scratching post after we’re done working.
I just love getting mail that’s not bills.
First of all, I got my much anticipated sample of the new Purex Complete laundry sheets. These things look awesome – detergent, softener and anti-static all in one. Has anyone given it a try yet?
And that wasn’t it for mail! I also received my very own copy of Caitlin’s book Operation Beautiful. (thank you SOOOOO much K!!!!!!)
Well C and I were very bad this weekend. In midst of all our running around this past weekend, we neglected to make our meal plan for the week. Not good! Since I didn’t know what I was going to make for supper tonight, I rattled my brain on the drive home and decided to use these:
To any of my fellow Ontarians – particularly any who live in the Durham Region – and who eat meat ( 😉 ) …. WALMART is the place to go to get ground turkey. Check this out! This is their NORMAL price.
While those were cooking, I made a quick sauce with sautéed garlic and onions, the rest of my canned tomatoes and some fresh basil. The zucchini was sautéed on it’s own and then added to the sauce. I served both the sauce and meatballs on some whole wheat cous cous.
And then there was dessert.
When I read THIS post by Tina over at Carrots ‘N Cake today, I immediately knew that sweet potato blondies would be my dessert tonight. I quickly whipped them up (adding 1 egg, some coconut and topping them with mini chocolate chips).
Well now that my body is happy, I’m off to check out Operation Beautiful!
Good night all!
