hey lovelies :):)
~happy wednesday loves!~
this morning i woke up and went for a little run, it was mild but really windy. it was balmy though, but the wind was strong i was not expecting that. but, oh on one street the sun was shining right down and it felt so nice :) but then i started to get really hot which is not cool ;P anyway, i had a lovely breakfast composed of oats & little additions, followed by some coffee.
irish quick oats + jordan’s muesli microwaved with 1/2 or so of a ripe banananana, raw almonds, cinnamon, ginger, topped with a few shredded wheat bites, crystallized ginger + silk almond milk mmm ;)
i have no idea where my camera charger is, so i can’t upload anything else at the moment. i guess it’s at home, but i already searched through the box that it came in, as i like to keep things together. and i haven’t had it for long, so i have no idea what’s going on :/ and i was just getting into taking more photos too ;(

this is the book im currently reading, it was a christmas gift from my brother. it was a bit funny, i noticed a night or so ago he was reading the book i gave him, and then i jumped into bed in the evening to read his gift ;) it’s really good so far, funny, the topic…oh i love how my brother chose it, i guess he associates me with troubled families, people with emotional issues, etc. no, im joking. he actually spent a really long time choosing books for my parents and for me this christmas, i can just see him standing in the store while reading each cover very well to see if we could relate to it, he’s a pretty sweet boy. well, guy. i guess. as he’s four years older than i am.
i keep getting him books, i just want him to read more. i guess i need to understand that, just because i might need books in order to survive (im quite serious) he could be the opposite. i just cannot understand how he doesn’t enjoy reading? ahhh it’s just unfathomable to me. i love to read for a while before i
go to sleep try to sleep. i always hope that it can provide some sort of escapism but, even if it did, i can’t just escape from my life. and it doesn’t eliminate the panic stress, which i still feel anyway. but i guess that’s life.
anyway…i always think of the ellen show when i say that ;P
this was a bowl of oats from last week: pear cherry ginger i guess? it consisted of a mixture of old fashion oats and bobs red mill organic oat bran, cinnamon, ginger, dried cherries and natural raw almonds cooked in, 1/2 bosc pear and topped with crystallized ginger and a bit of skim i think!
i know i don’t post much on here regarding personal things or specifics, numbers. but i got my blood work done a little while ago as my therapist wanted to make sure things were okay, partly because of the low bp thing but also because it’s been a while. i thought my iron would be wayyy low but somehow it was okay. the only thing she was a bit concerned with was that my liver enzymes (ast i think) were a bit elevated. i had no idea what that meant but of course i google it and, well i know im hardly drinking now so it’s not that. i’m good to my liver!!! even in uni. i thought so, anyway. but has anyone else had an issue like this? don’t worry, im just curious. i’m not seeking advice from here, i know i have to listen to my doctors ;)
i hope that you’re having a good week so far. we had a holiday monday, “family day” but i think its just for our province…i know that when i was in uni in nova scotia there was no such thing and they introduced it that same year at home, so last year was my first family day i guess. funny holiday…americans get presidents’ day though, right? i still had a therapy appointment though ;P she was the only one there and i had to buzz downstairs outside to get it, i guess the building itself was closed. and it didnt actually let me in i was just trying to open the door like a weakling until someone came out and opened up from the inside. sort of awkward…
that’s all really ;) have a lovely day. oh, did you have pancakes yesterday? i didn’t, i have no ingredients here for them here, and i never like to make something like that just for myself, it feels like a weekend family affair, i’d feel so lonely making pancakes just fir myself alone in my apartment. i haven;t had them in so long though! sometime soon, though :)
lots of love
