  A couple months ago I moved from Vancouver to Ottawa. I will save the story for another post. After staying in a hotel for over a month I am finally in my own apartment. I am still getting settled but I was ready to cook a meal.  The area I moved to has everything in walking distance. The neighbourhood has so many good restaurants, shops, and cafes. The area also has a farmers market where I purchased the amazing looking basil and tomato’s. The olive oil is from a specialty oil store. The bottle I bought was from a brand new batch that was delivered today. The vegan cashew cheese was from a vegan festival that was held a few days ago. I bought these ingredients because I wanted to make pasta. I used to use my always pan often when I was in Vancouver I gave it to my aunt before moving. I bought a new set of the always pot and pan. When I only had the pan I always wished I had the pot for cooking pasta. My mom had given me some bucatini that she hadn’t used and I had some soy curls in

September 23, 2018 -Goals Update Part 1 - Get a job

I started drafting this post in June as it was half way through the year and thought it was a good time to do a goal update now it is September and I haven't posted this yet so what was I doing? Working on my goals of course. Should I put the blog on my goal list next year, so I work on it? I have made significant progress on all of the goals from my January 9, 2018 post. You can read  it here  http://www.livingvancouverloca.com/2018/01/2017-year-in-review-and-2018-goals.html  I had three major goals for this year.  January 9, 2018 - Goals for 2018 Summary 1. Get a job, I pretty much took a year long holiday from working and now it is time to get back into the working world. 2.  Get healthier physically which means losing weight considering I put on 15 pounds last year alone losing that 15 pounds would be a great start. 3. Earn $1375 from the internet this is ideal as it goes along with the 52 week savings challenge that I am doing. For more info see the previous posts. Ho
