a simple thursday

hey lovelies :):)

i’ve been waiting and waiting and waiting…ugh, to find some inspiration to create a post with some sort of “substance”…or just, like, a point to my post, really. i was looking through an older blog, someone i did not know of when she was writing “live” because i started this ‘journey’ much too late. but she had posted a survey, which seemed quite unique because the answers were simply composed of one word. i won’t link back because, i don’t know her personally & i’m not sure if she’s okay with it…and i think this has probably  been around for a while ;) i also changed a few things (can i do that..?) probably not. i might be sued for this so, yea… i also changed the spelling to canadian/uk because the other way bothers me. and i deleted a few…bahh whatever, please do the survey if you’d like and post it or something. or just do it for yourself, i found it pretty entertaining, but i’m easily amused at things like this, im simple-minded i guess:

breakfast from last week: “banana-cherry-almond” oats ;)

mixture of old fashion oats and organic oatbran cooked with 1/2 banana, dried cherries, cinnamon, ginger and natural raw almonds, topped with crystallized ginger, shredded wheat & almond milk

…or just one.

i hope this update wasn’t too lame, i want to post more, but i often don’t have time at the right moment, or don’t have something nice to share, or any other silly reason. but this was fun! for me, at least…but i just needed some time to find a bit of inspiration. even if it was just a simple survey. it’s odd how something like that can make me think about so many things, memories, feelings…just from one word. ahhh, well that’s me in a nutshell.


not taken today obviously, as there’s no blue.

that’s all i have to say really…i hope you’re doing well. and i’ll talk to you soon. xox



  1. That seems like quite the enjoyable survey, I might have to attempt it. I'm glad you posted again, and I know what you mean about not feeling like you have anything substantial to post. But I think this post was fun. Hope you are doing well. xxx

    1. i hope you're doing well also, calla :) xox

  2. jen! I don't think you should have to wait around until you have something you feel has "substance" to post about ..just post whatever you like! I enjoy reading your thoughts for the day, your wishes, what you did, what you wish you did..anything! none of your posts have bored me before haha. And what a fun survey..I may have to do it too! your breakfast looks very yum. I really do think, like you said, you should challenge yourself to a non oatmeal/cereal breakfast soon. I was in that rut for forever but now I have things like english muffins (as you saw,) bagels, or yogurt bowls on occasion. Variety is nice :) oh and if you think that you started this blogging "journey" too late than I'm probably lightyears too late :/ haha oh well. lovely photo as always! xoxo

    1. :)i really needed some sort of topic, since i haven't been posting daily "about my life" and felt really stupid updating everyone with nothing again :p thank you though, and that is a good idea about the bfast...though im not sure its totally fear/ed/food-driven...partly a few other things. but i kind of want to have pancakes, like homemade ones. but with family, so i might wait until im home sometime and we have some ww flour. i used to make them every weekend. though i wasn't healthy then either, less restrictive but idk it was odd. anyway, aha long comment to your comment which you will likely never see. xox
