Yesterday was my first day of work and it was great! I was super nervous at first and a bit overwhelmed but by the end of the day I was feeling comfortable with the position and I am excited to go back to work next week. My second day I have to travel for a meeting which is fun so we will see how that goes but so far I am loving it (haha okay it’s been one day). Also did I mention that I get to have an iphone for work! Hello colour me pumped!
After work hubby and I decided to stop and get a beer to celebrate my successful first day of work. Since it was dinner time we decided to go out (again) for dinner. I don’t know what is up with us we never go out to eat this much, usually only once every 10 or so days but this week we have been bad about it- I blame the awkward days, poor planning and no real grocery shopping. However this week will be filled with lots of home cooked meals as I went to the market yesterday and picked up lots of yummy produce. Anyways we stopped at The Alchemist but it was packed and there was a 45 minute wait for a table so we left and walked next door to The Reservoir where we had some yummy beers, a huge plate of hummus, salad and grilled bread and a housemade tofu/bean burger YUM!
I was pretty tired out after my first day back in the working world so we spent the rest of the night home hanging out on the couch watching a little L&O. Since we ate dinner so early we were hungry later on in the evening and decided to munch on some Veggie Medley Straws that I was sent to sample from The Mediterranean Snack Food Co. and they were super yummy! I also had another Inko’s White Tea this time Original.
Now I need to get myself in the kitchen and make breakfast and do some dishes before G-Ma and the ‘rents get here so we can go and see all the open sugar houses. Each year on this weekend the Vermont sugar houses are open for the public to come and visit and try their maple syrup and have sugar on snow with a pickle (to cut the sweetness) and a cider donut. It’s a been a tradition with my family to go and visit the sugar houses however since I haven’t been home for many Springs we haven’t all been out together. Neil and I went last year to the sugar house near our house but it was pouring and cold booo!
Is there a family tradition that you do each Spring?
