My day in five words or less

Cold, wet, and rainy

Just before writing this, I wasโ€ฆ

Watching Gilmore Girls with my sister and having a snack. We just came home from yoga.

I ate ____ today

Breakfast: Coffee with foamed half-and-half, thinkThin Honey Peanut Butter Oatmeal, and some fresh raspberries.

Lunch: Unsweetened iced tea, two drumsticks, Loco Side Salad, and some chips from El Pollo Loco

Dinner: Annie’s Rice Pasta & Cheddar Gluten Free Microwavable Mac & Cheese Cup – I had to rush to yoga so I didn’t get to eat a proper dinner. I had every intention of making grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup, but I ran out of time and didn’t have all the ingredients on hand.

Snacks: SkinnyPop popcorn and lots of Traditional Medicinals Herbal Throat Coat tea (I’ve had a sore throat the last couple of days)

TIL (Today I Learned)

That banks like to make you click on their disclaimer before you proceed to visiting their social media sites. I had to look at a ton of different banking sites as part of the research phase for one of my projects, and all the major banks had a popup window with a disclaimer before letting you proceed to their social media site. It was annoying!

At 12:34pm today, I wasโ€ฆ

Eating a bag of SkinnyPop popcorn (it’s National Popcorn Day, hey-yo!) while perusing my subscribed feeds on feedly.

One thing I could have done better today

Go to bed earlier! As evidence by when I posted this blog post, I stayed up way too late for a work night.

I will start tomorrow byโ€ฆ

Making sure I get to bed before 10pm.

The weather

Here’s a shot of my screen saver that pretty much says it all:

I can’t complain too much though given we’re in a drought. ๐Ÿ˜‰


That is weird about the banksโ€™ websites. I use a provider with a very strong online presence (Commonwealth Bank of Australia), and they proudly have their social media accounts linked, without any interstitial or โ€˜barrierโ€™. Must be different from country to country.

Shame about the tomato soup, I would have loved some. ๐Ÿ˜‰
