I've got a date

Thursday, March 04, 2010
No chance of finding true love though...the date isn't with Mr. Right. It's with the dietician. I'm very excited though, almost as much as I would be if it was a real date. I was pretty lucky that they called when they did. They had an opening today but if I couldn't make it, the next opportunity to see me wouldn't be until mid-April! Busy busy busy! I jumped all over the appointment today - it means an afternoon off of work but that's ok. Who wants to sit in the office when I could be sitting in a doctor's office?

The receptionist told me all I had to do was show up but that I'd likely be given "homework". I'm guessing this is probably getting me to write down everything I eat for a week or two. I'm perfectly happy to do this but there's one little problem. If I'm concentrating on writing everything down, I'm going to be more careful about what I'm eating so it won't be a true reflection of what I might normally eat. Do you know what I mean? I suppose that has it's good side - I'll eat a bit better and avoid some of the crap I might otherwise ingest. Sigh. Homework. I was sure I had finished with that the day I graduated from university.

The warm weather continues. It's been lovely this past week or so. Spring jackets, no mittens, the smell of spring in the air. The only problem is that as the glaciers recede, they leave behind piles of puppy poo, sand/gravel/dirt, garbage, rotting vegetation and the smell of spring in the air. Ugh. I'm trying to keep my excitement to a minimum. This is Alberta; Mother Nature is teasing us I'm sure. Guaranteed we'll get hit by one final big snowfall before the buds finally pop out on the trees. I'm not worried though. Spring will come...eventually.

Speaking of spring, the Admiral and I are excitedly discussing our gardening plans for the balcony. What we'll be planting, where the pots will go, when we should start. I can't wait to stick my hands in dirt and feel it between my fingertips, watch the green shoots bursting up through the top of the soil and opening up in the sun. Mmmm. There'll be plenty of green and yellow beans, some herbs and a tomato plant or two on my side of the balcony this year.

I love tomatoes.. Send me some...LOL...I would plant a garden but one small problem the city would more than likely site us again because the only place we have enough sun light is the front yard....

I'm thinking about the garden too. I can't wait either.
