Sharing our Lives - Day in the Life, Summer Edition

Hello! Thank you for joining us today.  We're here on the second Monday of each months to share our lives with you via the topics listed below.  My co-hosts are: AdrienneDaraJen, and Joanne.

I love doing a Day in the Life post, and looking back at them later.  Times in our lives are so different, it is fun to see how things change. 

I documented my day last Wednesday.  I set my alarm for 6:15 and got up to have a quick shower.  I did not wash my hair and it was pretty good from the night before so I didn’t need to straighten it either.  I put on my makeup and then went downstairs.

I prepared my AG1 and drank that while I made coffee and got my breakfast and lunch together.  

Wednesday is garbage day so I put the bins out - Recycling and Green Bin on this day.

Coffee, breakfast and lunch ready to go.  I made myself an egg sandwich and had leftover pasta. I find that I can’t eat breakfast immediately drinking my AG1 so I take it with me to work. 

I don’t usually go into the office on Wednesday but I had a couple of meetings that I wanted to be person for.  I biked down. 

I approached Lake Shore just as the light changed so I had time to get my phone out for a quick photo.  It was such a beautiful morning, and not humid.

And same thing when I got downtown and time to cross Lake Shore again. 

I got to my office and got changed and then went into the boardroom for a meeting. 

At lunch I popped over to Sephora to get some new powder. 

I also picked up a muffin to have with my afternoon coffee, but it wasn’t great so I threw out half of it. 

In the afternoon I checked to see new photos of the kids at camp.  They looked like they were having fun.

I marked up the map of our Timmins office for the outdoor party we having there later in the summer.  

Time to pack up and go home. With the kids away I don’t need to rush home for any particular time

Dave was golfing so I made some coleslaw and chicken fingers for my dinner.  I put the cabbage in a colander with some salt, sugar, and vinegar for a few minutes before adding mayonnaise and grainy mustard.

Then I went out to the grocery store and liquor store. Little did I know the liquor store would be going on strike on Friday.  I got a bunch of wine but I would have bought more if I had known about the strike.

Then I watched some Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders on Netflix and had an ice cream drumstick.

Dave got home around 9:00 and we watched an episode of The Bear and had and early night.  

Thanks for joining us today.
