I cannot believe it has already been a week. A long week it was. Work was draining and I do not like that I feel so incredibly tired after work. This is not how it should be. Thursday was magnificent though and made up for the entire week. I feel indulgent on Thursdays as that is my day off. I usually do not sleep in and in fact am out of my place by 9 am sipping coffee at a cafe close by. Yesterday was no different. I also started the day off by reading my horoscope. This one I really liked and felt it resonated with me. Thank you NOW Astrologer. This Thursday was different though as I had a lovely jaunt in Queen East. I stopped in at a lovely cafe called Te Aro and felt that it immediately took me back to SF- Four Barrel to be exact. Except of course minus the regulars I came to know there. Carlos- the bike man, All About Coffee Man- Paul Madonna and the lovely staff there. Can you tell I miss SF? For a moment I thought you don't need to go to SF to get a dose of SF you can just head on to Queen Street, but that moment was dashed, but not in a bad way. Getting back to my great day though- after Queen East, I came back home and Ian and I went to the Farmer's Market at Dufferin Grove Park and then drove to yoga where we met Veena and had an amazing session and then dinner after. I am grateful for days like these.

Wholesome goodness in a bowl. Steel cut oats are so good, especially if you like oats chewy. I really like oatmeal with rolled oats, but I love steel cut oats. I can never seem to overcook them and they never go mushy.
I actually made this yesterday and had some left over and heated it with some water on the stove. Still had that chewy texture and tasted great. This keeps me going for a really long time. I have to eat a really good breakfast/lunch at an odd time because I start work in a kitchen at 2:00 and only get a break around 4ish. This is so good for a slow release of energy throughout the day.

I have been thinking about goals. What would I like to achieve this year.
First and foremost is to put more into friendships that I value and maintain better connected.
Getting help to finish this scarf:
Sewing Classes: http://www.lovesewing.com/toronto/Home/tabid/166/Default.aspx
Start the Holistic Nutrition Program: http://www.instituteofholisticnutrition.com/ihn.asp?section=programsoffered
We will see what all gets done.
So far, I have not been keeping up with Yoga, but tomorrow is another day and yet another day to try to do so.
