Good Morning Friends! Before I jump right to the WIAW fun how about a quick update on happenings in my world. After weeks of job decisions I finally know where I’m moving to next week. After mulling over offers from Connecticut and California I finally signed a contract to work at a hospital in San Diego! While I was ready to deal with winter if needed the perk of a short relocation (on short notice) down the coast makes it much simpler. I have only spent a little time in the area and definitely looking forward to exploring it further. I’ll only be working 3 days a week so I’ll hopefully have more time to check out some sights….including the great eats, drinks, and sights that Laura keeps posting!
Seeing as I was on an incredibly tight timeline I headed down to San Diego to find an apartment bright and early Saturday morning. After a quick oatmeal breakfast I home I stopped by a nearby Coffee Bean and picked up a cup of their Winter Tea. I have never been to this shop but recently saw people raving about this tea. It was really good.
I spotted this coffee that I may need to return and try 🙂 It said it had ginger notes which was intriguing.
I arrived right at the opening of the leasing offices at 9am. After checking out one complex with no availability I headed over to location #2. I toured the complex and immediately decided to lease the unit. I filled out the application and submitted the payment. As soon as I hit submit on their electronic application two other people who had been touring came back into the office with plans to lease that same unit. I was so glad to have lucked out…made up for getting up early on a day off! Traffic was getting quite busy so I headed back up to Orange County. I had thrown some pretzels in a bag and munched on them and some water while stuck in stop and go traffic. I am on a role with these lately. So good to snack on and not overly salty.
I finally got back home around noon. I quickly whipped up a smoothie and grabbed a free sample bar from the vegetarian festival I went to last weekend. I added some frozen peach to the smoothie which seemed to make it a bit thicker.
I headed back out for an afternoon of running errands. I got home right before supper and cooked the last remaining piece of Sizzlefish salmon in the freezer. I nailed the sweet potato cooking time…400F for 60 minutes seemed to be perfect. My naturopath recommended trying some green beans so I picked up some thin ones at Costco. They tasted really good but I didn’t feel great after eating them unfortunately.
Spent the end of the day on the couch planning moving details while snacking on some delicious critters 🙂
That’s a wrap for this week. I am taking an online college course which starts today so I am off to study….as if I don’t have enough to do already! Hope you all have a great week and perhaps are lucky to enjoy today off work (I will be working unfortunately).
