My day in five words or less

Cold, wet, and rainy

Just before writing this, I was…

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 was…

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 by…

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. 😉


That is weird about the banks’ 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 ‘barrier’. Must be different from country to country.

Shame about the tomato soup, I would have loved some. 😉
