A Good Good Friday

Up late studying (and now procrastinating, oops!) on a Friday night…but it was a good, Good Friday!

First, great news! Hélène Campbell has had her double lung transplant! There are still a lot of hurdles to overcome after a transplant, but it’s exciting just the same…now just hoping for a speedy recovery. You can see Hélène’s blog here: http://www.alungstory.ca/ and the story about her transplant here: http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/ottawa/story/2012/04/06/ott-helene-campbell-lung-transplant.html.

My brother made Dunlop look like a babushka. Poor puppy.

Disney was right: it’s a small world after all. I went to a friend’s birthday last night and met a girl whose blog (http://weightlossandcorinne.com/) I stumbled upon when I first joined WordPress. Turns it we have both been following each other’s blogs but had no idea that we both knew the birthday girl! It was a fun discovery and I was so happy to meet Corinne! Alycia convinced me to stay a liiiittle longer than I initially intended, and I’m glad I did.

Woke up with a bit of a hangover and a super-foamy & delicious latte made by my Dad...lovely.
Beautiful spring weather means beautiful blossoms and a beautiful time for a run. I couldn't resist being outside today. Which is why I'm stuck at my desk now. Good trade off!

To avoid starting my work earlier I baked, of course.  I tried this delicious and healthy sounding recipe for strawberry & banana quinoa muffins; they tasted really good but were sooooo moist.  I might tinker with the recipe before I share it because they were a bit like muffin-pudding! Tasty, but a little messy to eat.

Never thought muffins could be TOO moist -- will give these ones another try, they were really yummy!

While this long weekend is shaping up to be sunny & lovely, I’m sending lots of love and best wishes to my uncle in the hospital and his family. Thinking of you guys a ton and hoping for the best! xox
