What's up Wednesday

What we're eating this week...
Sunday - turkey chili
Monday - Peanut Noodles with tofu and vegetables
Tuesday - Pancakes and turkey sausage
Wednesday - Spaghetti squash and chicken thighs
Friday - I'm going out, so the boys will fend for themselves
Saturday - Salad bowls

What I'm reminiscing about...
I registered Q for JK for this coming September so I am of course thinking about E when he was going to JK.  They are different kids but both pretty easy going about new things so I think Q will love JK just like E did.

What we've been up to...
I've been working on getting as much done as possible in the evenings so I can have easier mornings getting ready for work.  Part of the challenge is that I am trying to eat really well for the four weeks leading up to our trip (one week down) so that requires a lot more prep for my breakfast and lunch as I can't just grab a bagel or buy my lunch.  I feel like my mind never stops planning but it is nice to come down in the morning and only need to get Q's breakfast ready (he usually wants eggs). 

What I'm dreading...
I'm really getting worried about COVID-19.  I thought things were under control, but after talking to our friend who is an infectious disease doctor in Toronto, and also paying more attention to the news, I see things are getting worse.  I don't want to blow it out of proportion but I also want to be prepared.  

What I'm working on...
Our taxes.  We just got our T4s yesterday so we can do the calculations to add to our RRSPs before the deadline of March 1.  I am also slowly but surely planning our summer.  

What I'm excited about...
The snow we are supposed to get this week.  I will write more about this tomorrow, but I'm not ready to let winter go!

What I'm watching/reading...
We are watching The Morning Show and season 3 of Mrs. Maisel, and we have a few more shows on our list like Island of Bryan and The Pharmacist. There are so many things and we have all of the streaming services (except Crave) so it's hard to keep up!!

I wrote about my February books on Monday.  I have two books arriving at the library for me this week, both I've had on my reading list for years - Seinfeldia and Bread and Wine.

What I'm listening to...
I heard this song the other day, If the World Was Ending, and I really like it, and it breaks my heart at the same time.  This is a theme that has always gotten to me - people who love each other but can't be together for some reason, and so this song is about if nothing else mattered (because the world is ending) then they could be together. 

What I'm wearing...
I snapped a few flat lay photos of my recent work outfits for fun.  I wrote about my winter wardrobe last week so here are some photos to back it up.

This was my casual Friday outfit - black pants, a grey sparkly top and grey sweater with leather sleeves

Black and white skirt, blue sweater, and black tights.

Black skirt, black shirt, and pearls (and black blazer added at my office)

Navy blouse and red pants

What I'm doing this weekend...
Having dinner with a friend on Friday night and then going to the Raptors game (through work, not with Dave unfortunately), E's t-ball tryouts, and our last weekend of ski lessons (but hopefully not the last time skiing).

What I'm looking forward to next month...
PDAC (mining conference), Bingo Night at E's school, March Break, St. Patrick's Day, Dave's birthday, first day of Spring, and Jamaica!  March is a fun month!

What else is new...
I finally placed an order to get some photos of Q printed so we can update our photo wall to add him to it.  He changes so quickly that even the photos I'm printing are out of date.

Linking up with Shay.


  1. We are so opposite about Winter! I am so ready for it to end, and it hasn't even been that bad this year. I think I'm just over the 6am snow shoveling :)

    Also, I really like your black and white skirt. It looks really cute!

  2. For food prep, I have been taking jarred salads to work with me for years now and once you get into it, it is pretty easy to maintain. I usually bake some chicken breast and some sweet potatoes on the weekend. I make a simple dressing (just olive oil and balsamic), put that in the bottom of the jar, then chicken, sw potato, chick peas, tomatoes and then greens at the top. Stays fresh thru to Fri.
