I was so sad to hear about David Bowie's passing. We watched Labyrinth this weekend in memory of the Goblin King.

I am back to working on this blanket but I have decided that it will absolutely not be a king sized blanket for our bed. I am very happy with it being a cozy couch blanket and I'm hoping to finish it up soon.

This was a belated Christmas present from Ivan and it was worth the wait!

Milo and I were playing with a crochet bunny I made a long time ago when I told him that he could pick a friend for it for me to make. He decided on a turtle and also decided that he needed it "right now". Milo was so sweet about it that I started working on it right away while he entertained himself with some books and helped me stuff when the time came.

There aren't many days where I only take one photo but Sunday was one of them. I decided to quickly snap a photo of the snow through the front window before we went out and...ooops, my neighbour was walking out the door at that moment and I didn't notice until I was editing the photo.

I am much better at keeping outside plants happy. These guys were outside in the summer having a great time but are kind of pissed about being in the house. Still, it's nice to have a few plants here and there inside.

I have books to return and a new book to pick up from the library today so that's our plan. It's kind of becoming our Monday routine to head to the library in the morning. Nothing too exciting on the list for today except some possible muffin making.

Meal Planning :: January 11 - 15, 2016

The week is over and we ended up doing a kind of fly-by-the-seat-of-our-pants meal planning because we were sick over the weekend when we would have normally got organized. This week I had a mental list of meals that we already had most of the ingredients for and although mental lists don't usually work for me, this week it was fine. Here's what we had.

1. Leftover pasta (boring but we had tons leftover from the weekend) & salad
2. Chili (since we were sick last Friday we didn't end up having this so I still had the ingredients)
3. Bowl with Goddess dressing (I had leftover beets, we always have carrots, kale from the freezer)
4. Arabian Lentil & Rice Soup from Appetite for Reduction, salad & homemade gluten-free baguette (this is one of my favourite soups ever)
5. Pizza using this crust recipe from The Minimalist Baker & salad

We were really slacking in the snack department but we did have:
1. Hummus
2. Two types of chia mini muffins (chocolate chip peanut butter & lemon)

I think I will eventually share the chia mini muffin recipe because, although I got the basic idea from the Oh She Glows cookbook, I have made some modifications so that I can make them without any sugar. Also, it's a good base to make up any flavour muffins you feel like!

No photos, just a quick reminder for myself when I'm feeling stuck for meal ideas.

Happy Saturday!

5 Fave Friday

I don't know if this will be something I do often but this week (I actually started this last week) I was really in the mood to put together one of these posts. Here are some things I found around the internet.

5. This crochet blanket pattern from the Felted Button is so cool.

4. I saw this C-3PO patch on Becky's Instagram and I need to add it to my jacket eventually.

3. I really like the shape of this dress.

2. This pin is so pretty.

1. I'm sharing this photo because I am really missing my favourite pair of glasses. I have quite a few pairs but somehow these ones are gone and I'm very disappointed. I'm very tempted to buy them.
