    April Goals
    1. 5K on April 10!!!!! DONE!
    2. SLEEP

    Food
    (Ummm, I’ll try to remember)

    Avoid Poisons & Stupid Mistakes

    Off Plan Eating: cherry cheesecake, heresy kisses, gummies

    Move Slowly, Lift Heavy, Sprint
    Nope

    Made bacon for my kids, bought groceries and wine, made the salad, went to my Sister-in-Laws for a family Easter supper, drank wine. Then around 9pm we met some friends, I had a Ruby Grapefruit PalmBay cooler and then we went to a Stag & Doe (for a friend’s son). The Farmer & I didn’t stay long, we were home & in bed by midnight. I had one Vodka and orange juice and cranberry juice. I didn’t enjoy it and only drank half of it.

      It’s a good thing Easter only comes once a year…

      Move Slowly, Lift Heavy, Sprint

      Two long walks on the beach.

      Sleep, Sun, Play, and Use Your Brain
      Bed around midnight, up at 9. Got ready and went to church with the Farmer. My Easter gift to my kids was letting them sleep in

      Eldest son cooked up some Peameal bacon for lunch.



      I made another salad (same as Saturday’s)

      My daughter’s boyfriend came over; it was his 1st time to “meet the brothers”. They were pretty easy on him
      We got ready and went to my parent’s place at the lake. I took Lily but left Josie at home.

      Once everyone arrived (my sister, her daughter, two of her sons & their girlfriends, my Farmer, my 3 sons, Daughter and Boyfriend, a Jack Russell and Lily) we went for a walk. Lily dove into a brush pile and went mouse hunting! She found a nest!



      We continued down to the beach, and looked for sea glass.
      Lily and Cooter (the Jack Russell) were off leash and they had a blast!

      Lily digging in the sand:



      Here's a temporary spring creek on the beach:

      • Easter Sunday (part 2)

        On the way back, my Farmer decided we should climb the cliff and walk along the trail at the top.
        We chose an “easy” path up.

        This photo was taken 3/4 of the way up:


        And this was looking down from the same point:

        Some of my family stayed on the beach. You can see the temporary creek down below.

        Here's the path through the bush at the top of the cliff:

        That's my Farmer.

        When we got back to the marina, two of my sons put their “new and improved” raft in the lake for a test run before their river race in three weeks.

        They are in a 2nd annual “build your own raft” river race. They leave on a Saturday morning, ride the river all day, camp along the river bank, and ride again on the Sunday. Last year my sons came in 2nd place. This year they made a few “comfort” modifications to their raft. (the bench and a built in cooler)

        • Easter Sunday (part 3)

          We walked back up to my parents' for an egg hunt, a quick "bucket" bath for Lily, and then supper. After supper and the dishes we went for another walk, this time in the other direction along the beach. This time we walked by where a fox den is (no foxes sighted) and we searched for sea glass.



          It's not quite a "California Beach", it's a "Lake Erie Beach"

          We had to climb a set of stairs on the way back up.


          My Eldest and my Dad.

          There are 96 steps!

                12:30: 2 slices of peameal bacon and the last of the leftover salad
                2:30: Chai
                5:30: probably too much Lindt Sea Salt while driving home
                6:00: Left overs: ham & scalloped potatoes, mixed veggies and a small spoonful of baked beans.
                I'm SO tired of ham and scalloped potatoes!!!!!

                Off Plan Eating: the Lindt. It’s Monday, so I am “supposed” to leave it alone...

                Bed around midnight, up around 8.
                University son got a ride back to University with my Brother in Law this morning.
                This afternoon I drove my Eldest to the bus station in London to catch a ride back to Toronto.
                First we went shopping at Novacks.
                I really like that store
                I ate chocolate on the way home…
                Another easy evening on the couch with my Papillons

                • I got hungry reading Ellie's journal so I made a salad.

                  An orange and white salad, with bacon

                  Orange peppers, carrots, mushrooms, mozzarella cheese, cauliflower, sliced almonds, bacon and Balsamic, garlic, Macadamia Oil dressing.

                  I just sat down with it and then my daughter wanted one so I helped her make one too

                        Checked MDA, checked my email, discovered I had a TON of e-training to do for the school board…So I worked my way through it. I did:
                        WHMIS
                        Ladder safety
                        Bill 157 Keeping our kids safe at school
                        Bill 168 Workplace Violence and Workplace Harassment
                        Mould Awareness
                        Slips trips and falls

                        It took most of the day
                        I took a break at 3 when I smelled the bacon Army Wannabe Son was cooking and realized I hadn’t eaten yet

                        I experimented with a hamburger green curry for supper. It wasn’t spicy enough…

                              Get some sea salt flakes and press them into your 85%. Problem solved!
