Not much to say today.
I seem to be in my winter insomnia phase and had a little problem sleeping last night. I turned on Netflix and watched Black Swan.
When I got up at 11 Irene had made some juice and saved it for me in the refrigerator. I must say that I really enjoy drinking juice! I don't know why Oprah
hates it so much. What say you, Oprah?
Noriko, Irene and I got ready to do some light shopping, but decided to go to Starbucks for a quick-me-up coffee first. I took along my Japanese text book and had a nice little lesson from Noriko while we sipped on our usual Venti, Bolds.

I know I'll never fail!

Irene was wanting to find Amaranth in the health food store since I read her a few articles last night that compared Quinoa and Amaranth. So how does it stack up? I can't say for sure because I have never tried either and neither has Irene. So, off we go to Natures Fare health foods in Westbank. Amaranth where are you??? Hello! What's this? Ahhh, NuGo!
A few days ago I saw this company on The Feed Bags Twitter. They were called NuGo Nutrition and they make organic, vegan, nutrition bars. I showed Noriko their name and asked if she would help me look for them so that we could have a bite to tie us over until our late lunch. We split up and she found them almost immediately. To make a fare decision on which one to pick and split, I told her the two I didn't want to eat, and asked her to make the choice. We bought their Mocha, Dark Chocolate. It was soo delicious AND satisfying!
|THANK YOU NUGO!!|
The rest of the evening was pretty mellow with some grocery shopping and a light snow. Good day all in all. And the best part for me was spending time with my family. The heart of it all.
