Catching up on August 29

Hello there! It’s been a little bit. I’d like to say I’ve been super busy this past week, but really, that would be a lie. At least, by the looks of my apartment (pictures not forthcoming,) it has to be a lie.

Chris and I are making a constant effort to cook much more at home, and I am continuing my effort to make our meals not only healthy, but wholesome. On Thursday it was homemade coleslaw with bean mayo and barbequed chicken breast with a coconut flour breading:

And homemade non-dairy blackberry chocolate icecream for dessert!


Then on Friday night Chris was gone, so I made a mean pumpkin pie quinoa bake for my supper. I was a little impatient in the last step and dried it out a bit – now I’ve been adding almond milk and heating it up every day for porridge!

Are you sick of hearing about food yet? I’m not – it’s fascinating.

Yesterday was Chris’ birthday, and we did what we do best – fishing. (He got skunked on his birthday – boo!) I got a few words pegged down but have been finding myself rather unmotivated lately. I’m not sure why. I did very much enjoy the irony of my goldfish crackers floating away on the water whilst we said goodbye to the lake:

If you have any inspiring words, please send them my way.

Lastly – a kitten!

Where the wild things are

Ah, the great outdoors. Ripe for hiking, breathing fresh air, eating junk out of a can and…

fishing.

I have yet to drag Christopher outside to where he cannot fish. It’s my goal in life, I swear.

      

At least I got to try out my new point-and-shoot. Seems to be working pretty good so far. You’ll notice that the scenery changes a bit, but not the content! The Sony T99 also does panoramas in-camera:

On Saturday, we stayed overnight in Kananaskis. It was nearly impossible to find a spot so late in the weekend, but thankfully we did! There was no star gazing, though – the full moon completely washed out the sky. It was pretty, but I was disappointed. I love the stars.

I also love that random wildlife is not so random in the mountains.

These guys caused a traffic jam, with all of the crazy tourists pulling over to take pictures. Ah, those crazy picture-taking tourists…



What did you do over the weekend? Do you have any summer vacations planned for this last bit of the season?

P.S. I apologize for the picspam. Like I’ve mentioned, I like taking pictures! A lot.
