Today was an absolutely AWESOME day. I don't even know how it all went so well, but it was fabulous.
In fact, I'll indulge you all in a play-by-play of some of what made today so great: (I won't go over everything, obviously. that would be too much.)
6:30 woke up (let myself sleep in a bit as a treat), had a shower
7:00 had waffles for breakfast!
8:15 didn't miss my bus to school
8:45 gave a copy of PETA's Vegetarian Starter Kit to my friend KB, who is going to try out vegetarianism (YAY!)
9:00 Math! yay! (I'm such a dork :P)
11:49 Lunch... I took the time last night to make a spiffy bento!
I used the tofu noodles again, this time tossing them in beet juice, paprika, and chili powder. They were then placed on top of a bed of spring greens and nori butterflies were sprinkled on top.
I also had some firepit corn (more on that in an upcoming post!), steamed garden carrots, and a sliced garden tomato.
Once again, I used slabs of bell pepper to keep my food from jumping around too much :)
I also didn't feel like doing my social studies homework, so I tied a little ribbon bow onto my chopsticks.
The verdict on this lunch? YUM YUM YUM. My friends loved how much effort I put into it, but I think it's way worth it.
1:26 I had a spare! It's awesome, I've got 6 other friends who all have a spare that block too so we went for a nice walk. The weather is sure cooling down (it's like 15 degrees Celsius) but it was warmer than it's been lately
4:00 When I got home, there was a little surprise waiting for me!
You see, about two weeks ago, my mom and sisters and I went to a pottery painting place where we had a lovely afternoon decorating and exploring our creative sides.
I had decided to do a little bowl with vegetables around the side. I'm happy with how it turned out! It's going to be the best little bowl from now on, for soups and stir-fries and oatmeal and cereal...
The house also smelled really nice, and this was from the lovely lentil soup on the stove. Yay! I love my mom's lentil soup :)
AND, the pumpkins in our garden are totally done now! We picked them and now I'm super-excited to do something with these bad boys. There were only two, but that's fine.
