Today Today Today
What did I do today?
|Saskatoon compared to Luynes.|
Same zoom, you can barely
Oh yeah, took Lou to school, as per everyday. She didn’t want the freshly squeezed orange juice that I made for her, so I drank it when I got back.
Alissa and I went on to do our daily ritual of our later breakfast. Today we experimented with toasting brioche in the toaster. Our results : Success!! The sugar in brioche (Oh, this brioche was bought. In a bag. Like wonder bread. ) made it nice and crispy and was absolutely delicious with a little bit of butter.
We hung out until she left for her French course in Aix. I could have gone along and walked around Aix, but I had other plans.
I’ve been feeling a lot better lately. I owe it all to the salt water gargles three times a day. I decided to stretch my legs a little and start my running routine that I’ve wanted to but into action for months but had been too busy working day and night (literally) to have the time or energy.
I started out with a lap of the town. I don’t think I’ve ever been able to say that before. Not satisfied yet, I did an extra lap here and there along the main roads. I don’t know if it is common for people, maybe just girls, to be running around at lunch time because I got a couple of weird looks. I will have to ask Marie-Anne when she gets home. Those of you who would go to yoga classes with me will be happy to know that I did a little bit of yoga along with my post run stretches. It felt so good to finally get moving. I missed it so much!
|Luynes to Lakeview|
Oh, and in Saskatoon the campaign the city has to get everyone out and exercising is In Motion. I’m sure you’ve seen the gorgeous orange shirts around town. Well, here it is BOUGE! Which literally means MOVE! Its blunt. It must work.
I spent the rest of the afternoon researching where to get a decent yoga class around here. I can tell you right away, it isn’t in Luynes. I found a couple of options in Aix that even offer free first session or two. I will definitely be taking them up on that haha.
While out on my run I noticed that it took me about the same time to run around the town as it does to run around Lakeview. So, Google being my best friend helped me compare the two. First I started off with comparing Saskatoon to Luynes. In order to get all of Saskatoon on the map, you can barely spot Luynes (I made sure they were on the same zoom). Then I went on to compare to Lakeview and sure enough, they’re roughly the same size. I found it kind of funny that my home neighbourhood is the same size as a town.
Later I picked up Lou from school and we came home for a little snack. I’ve eaten all the fruit in the house yet again. I feel bad but I can’t help my healthy habit.
Lou loves to sing and dance and be dramatic. And apparently she likes singing karaoke. If you know me, I do not like karaoke at all, but I am willing to make sacrifices. Especially when the outcome is a content Lou. So karaoke it was, singing and dramatizing in front of my laptop using Youtube videos as our karaoke machine. It was actually kinda fun.
|Brioche in a bag. |
But tasty when toasted.
