Beloved of the Woods

Notes from my neck of the woods

Hooray!

Just got the go ahead to spend loads of money on clothes on my company’s dime. They want us all to look alike at a trade show and thus must all buy clothes from J Crew. Poor wedding scrimping me currently shops exclusively at Old Navy and only when there’s a sale.

ETA: $550.00 later (which includes the 30% discount). 

Spending that much money makes me nervous, especially if it isn’t mine.

Got a fancy note from my chiro saying I need to stay home and ice it all day. Not the fancy instafix I was hoping for. I’m watching my honeymoon days slipppppp away. 

Bright side- catching up on my TV stories sans brew boy comments. Win!

Did nothing last night, yet tweaked my back so bad I can barely move.

Awesome.

Followed this recipe, without the sourdough starter, and it’s amazing. 
Thanks Jenny! 

For future reference.

Our neighbors hate us

If we aren’t juicing at 6:30 in the morning, we’re making smoothies.

I posted this at 6:30 this morning. For reference.

Oh, and…

Terrible coworker looked at me today and said…

That dress makes you look like you lost weight.

When I responded…

Umm, I HAVE lost weight.

She said…

Oh… really?

A woman in Montreal sent a meeting request that she knows just went to Toronto and she knows will be happening in Toronto with all English speaking participants… in French. 

Every time I call our factory in Quebec they hear my name and start jabbering away in French. I’ve worked here for almost 5 years and I’ve met most of them personally. When I remind them I don’t speak French they get all flustered and confused, like I was supposed to learn in the time since we spoke last and I have let them, no, the entire French speaking world, down. Le sigh.
