    Oh, we've had several major issues in the past year and a half, particularly with #2. Fortunately, those particular issues seem to be at a low level for the past while. Still not where I'd like, but not where I was thinking it might go at a few points in time.

    Today, they're just dingbats who have a lot of growing up to do.

    I'm hoping so.

    Apparently we did. As did my stepbrother, who's the same age as me, and apparently has done so over the past 5 years, from what my mom tells me, I'm not interested in any relationship there.

    Just think of when you are aged and they are going to have to wipe up drool and piss and whatnot...but wait, we aren't going to end up in that state! Change that to when you are retired they will have to purchase your lift tickets for you and buy new gym equipment every so often.

    Ha, yes, we've had that discussion! #2 says not going to happen re wiping butts, #1 is anticipating making it big in business, so has mentioned at one point buying us a beachside island vacation home, I'd settle for an annual month long cruise or something like that. I'll believe that when I see it.

    I say the beachside island vacation home AND the annual month long cruise. Mark might start doing primal cruises!

Got a text later on that apparently his car keys are with him, and he forgot to pack his ski pants (WTH?) so could we transfer $ to his account from his paycheque that we just deposited for him so he can buy another pair at the mountain. Good grief. And he took a thermos full of chocolate milk when he left the house, and apparently left it somewhere between home and getting on the bus. .
    Hahaha! Reminds me of Surfer Son's trip to South Africa. He left several items in my car.

And couldn't find his license, so had to pay $10 to reissue so he could do the test. Which he did not pass. Which the refresher lesson on the finer testing points would have helped. Restest in 2 weeks. And the gal is over here this evening. She seems to be a girlfriend at this point.
    Boys!
    Congrats on the girlfriend!

    Gym time today was a treadmill walk of a bit over 3 miles. Lots of stretching afterwards for the tight knee and hips. I need to do the yoga pigeon pose more often, it's challenging but quite helpful.

    Got a bunch of stuff done at work. Not everything I had hoped for the week, but lots of it, and the critical stuff is crossed off the to do list. I have a bunch of pre readings for the course next week, but have stuff printed out and the online links available for the rest. Should be a good week.

    Son #1 made it Banff, had a brief text, sounds like he didn't sleep on the bus and was rather exhausted this morning on the mountain at Lake Louise. I'm sure he'll survive. #2 was commiserating as I took him to a friend's place that he should have been able to drive himself, and that he needs to do better on the next attempt, as it's all up to him. Gee, really?

    Tried something today I heard about on a Balanced Bites podcast. If using nut butters, to minimize the O6 and potential gut irritating effects of nut consumption, mix your nut butter with coconut butter/creamed coconut. This way you still get the flavour you're looking for plus the healthier fats from the coconut. It was very good, and I'd recommend it. I sliced an apple and dipped the slices into the nut/coconut butter and felt more satiated than with nut butter alone.

    Eats:
    coffee, bone broth, green tea
    L: lamb liver pate with cream cheese on celery. Tiny apple with almond butter/coconut butter
    Fruity herbal tea
    D: skinless chicken thighs with seasoned salt/onion powder/garlic powder/smoked paprika fried in bacon fat, half a cup of buttered rice, roasted brussel sprouts
    Rum & zevia.

    It was a horrid -42 pretty much all day outside. That's the same in C or F. Pretty much the same for tomorrow. Ugh. Day off tomorrow, have errands, household maintenance stuff and prep for the week away on the agenda. Plus a workout.

    Interesting. I'm not that far in the podcasts. Are you talking about the coconut that comes in the box? Is coconut butter the same thing? I wonder what would happen if you made the microwave muffins with that combo? (btw, I like the muffins better if they're baked in the oven.)

    And I agree. -42 is HORRID!

    I thought it was cold today at -4

    I have the blocks of creamed coconut in the box that I find at Superstore for about $1.39 and a jar of fancy pants coconut butter from the health food store. They're pretty much the same thing, only difference I can see is that with the boxed stuff, you have to warm it enough to squish the separated oil into the fleshy stuff. Tastes just the same, so to me, they're interchangeable, and the boxed stuff is 80% cheaper. Worth a try using it in the muffins, but the extra coconut fat might change the texture? I've never tried them in the oven. Microwave has worked fine for me. Dense, more of a heavy brownie or lava cake sort of texture than a muffin texture.

    Seriously? I should be hating you now . This is beyond stupid cold.
