I was so tempted to snuggle in bed rather than get up and go to Jazzercise but I got up and went. I met a lady I know who was new and needed some encouragement so I was glad I went. After last nights Fab Abs and Inner thigh class I was certainly aware of where those muscles were!!
Came home after class - driving by Allan and David on Steveston Hwy heading off to soccer in the horizontal rain - it was really torrential.
I had a shower, had a couple of important phone conversations, ate an omlette Lindsay made which was fantastic and then headed to pick up some items for my Valentines craft project! And then on to my credit union in Ladner to buy an RRSP.
I love my credit union - they are so friendly and helpful - my fear of financial institutions has evaporated - they really are so easy to deal with and treat us with what seems to be genuine warmth and interest. Hats of to Envision Credit Union!
Headed to the Mall with Miss L to buy rugby gear...... I have lost the battle - she loves rugby although she is in alot of pain in the upper arms and quads from 3 practices last week. So new cleats and the all important mouth guard (they come in pink!!) and some new shorts and she is all set. Please Lord protect her teeth and face and brain and bones........ At Junior Youth last night we watched the Karate Kid and that Mom watched that kid get beaten to a pulp in Kung Fu. There is NO way I could watch Lindsay get injured and not run onto the field (I already did that once with David at soccer and the Ref had a fit)....... I think Allan is going to lock me in the car!!!
Back home to start a few Valentines projects - I wish I could show you but some of you will be recipients of my work so I can't spoil the surprise!!
Had to dash into Steveston for some supplies mid-afternoon so I popped into the new bakery the "Sweet Spot" on Chatham and 2nd(?) and got some goodies for tea.
I worked away on my Valentines projects but stopped to make dinner of Prawn and Pea Risotto.
Risotto takes both skill and patience to get right - neither of which I possess in much quantity and certainly not in the culinary arena so I find preparation is key!
A few handfuls of parmesan cheese and a yummy dinner eaten with my favourite peeps in candlelight.
I hope you had a good Saturday...... I have lots to do tomorrow but for now I am am calling it quits (taking off Martha's mantle) and heading to bed with a book and glass of wine.
