Mother – Daughter Day

This morning I headed up to my parents place to spend the day with my Mom. It was a beautiful sunny drive to the middle of nowhere. 😉 We’ve been having quite the cold streak so it was nice to open the door and see this:

Followed with several of these:

Awww, warmth. Just Us French blend.

Was a great day; we spent hours talking, browsing the family photo albums (I may have snagged a few pics, fun scans to come!) I really cherish all the time we have together. Life is precious so it’s important to make every minute count.

Mom also showed me my grandfather’s journal from 1940 when he was a soldier posted in England. It details how he met my grandmother and their wedding 6 months later. Pretty neat eh?! She gave me a paper copy that one of my Aunt’s had transcribed. I can’t wait to dig in!

Lunch was comfort food. I could smell the turkey bones simmering when I arrived. Add a few handfuls of veggies, herbs and voila:
I used some of the turkey meat and made us a sandwich to split. Turkey, light mayo, sundried tomato dressing & cheddar cheese on whole wheat bread.

Oh and I tried one of the new (to Canada) Kashi Pumpkin Pie bars on the drive up and it was fantastic! Nutrition Info is pretty great too, 130 cals, 4g fibre & 4g protein. I can’t wait to try the other new flavours!

Running Update:
Surprise, surprise this week I haven’t gotten much running in. I’m hoping to get all caught up over the next few days. At this stage of the game I’m not worried because I have lots of time.
