Gilmore Girls binge watching, Fairmont Vancouver Waterfront stay, week of November 27 2016

Image
I had saved this weekend to binge watch Gilmore girls on netflix just like every other fan of the show.   I do not usually binge watch anything and I try to stay away from shows that may be addictive enough for me to have to spend a whole weekend watching this. How could I not watch Gilmore Girls with all the effort they went through to get a real ending. It was 4 episodes that were 1.5 hours each so a lot to get in during one weekend. I finished today and wish I had someone to discuss my thoughts with. I liked episode 1 and 2 episode 3 I fast forwarded through a portion of it. Episode 4 was the ending and it was good but it wasn't like the original. The acting and writing for the most part was as good as it always but some pieces didn't feel right. I enjoyed watching it but I didn't like the ending I know this was always going to be the last few words but it left so many questions. Maybe there will be a second season or a sequel to find out what really happened.

Week of November 20 -steamer, lunch at Pasta Polo, and Moview at VIP theater

My steamer arrived from amazon. The tip had broken of my old one a long time ago so I had been using it without the attachments for so long. I forgot how much better being able to attach a brush or a cloth to the steamer is. I didn't know they were so cheap or I would have bought a new one a long time ago. This steamer is a little bit smaller than my old one which means I have to refill it more often but that is okay just do sections at a time. I hate cleaning but I love steaming its so easy and fun to spray the steam and wipe it after the steam is so hot it disinfects. The brush attachment is great for giving thing a little srcub. I also love how shiny things are after they are sprayed with steam.











Sunday fun day after going for the blood test I arranged weeks ago I went to lunch and a movie with my best friend, her sister, and her step mom. We have been friends for 17 years so they are family now. We started out having lunch at pasta polo which is known for their quality pasta …

Manicure and clean soup maker Week of November 13, 2016

An update on my previous post of getting the burned part of the pan. I tried a number of edible items after my google searches. Coke worked really well but I would have needed to use three or four bottles for it to come out clean. The best was pouring baking soda in and just letting it sit overnight then using a dish scrubber after that running hot water through the soup cycle. I am so happy that I can still use the soup maker it is one of the best tools ever. My hand steamer stopped working this week and I use it for lots of things it is so much fun to just spray steam at things to clean and sanitize them. I ordered a replacement from amazon yesterday this is a little steamer so it was only $40 including shipping but I am lost without my gadgets.

This has been a lay back weekend. Although I am Canadian the event of the week was the US election and now everyone is tired. It is also the week to adjust to time change and the darkness at 4pm plus the winter weather is starting. In Vanco…

November 6, 2016 Health Show, Homesmade Ceasar Salad with Garlic Croutons

Image
Yesterday I went to the Vancouver Health Show. It is an exhibition of health related programs. I listened to a couple of speakers one on hormones and another on minerals and the effect on the body. I had a few samples, liquid iron, juice, granola bars, spaghetti made from kojnac, and for me the highlight was sitting in chair that had a massager on it for about 10 minutes. It was relatively easy to obtain a 2 for 1 coupon for the event so the admission was $6 each for my friend and I did get a bag that had some hemp protein shake samples, a polysporin blister bandaid, and a magnet. I also entered some contests at the event received some free cloth bags, a pill container, and a frisbee. I don't know if I am a prize winner yet. It was worth the price of admission.

This is the week of being tired with a lack of energy I am pretty sure my thyroid medication needs to be adjusted again. I did miss a couple days of 3 week yoga retreat but I will be back on track soon as my advent calenda…
