This past week has been a good one. I am still on the 5 day a week exercise plan. The days may change but I get them in. Sunday has turned into a prep and relax day, which I am not complaining about.
Last Tuesday 2 different coworkers brought me carrot cake Oreos as they heard I have been on the look out for them. Interesting enough the differences in ingredients between the ones bought in Canada versus the ones from the US. The Canadian ones were 5 calories more and the American ones had surprise, surprise high fructose corn syrup.
Although my to do list at work keeps growing, I was able to knock off enough to make me feel like I had earned my pay cheque last week.
I was able to get in contact with my super who came to my apartment to help me clean out the dryer vent in the ceiling. It was great that he came when he did, as the vent was completely blocked. The lint was solid. Lint in the ceiling filter has been the cause of a dryer fire in my building so I try to be extra careful. Seems like my new dryer is spitting out lint like nobody’s business. Considering how much lint is in the dryer filter, I’m surprised my clothes are still in tact and that there is anything left to go into the ceiling. Time to get better at checking the vent filter and possibly look into getting a dryer cleaning kit.
I finally made it to Ikea today to pick up a few things to make a terracotta heater. I have been stalking Instagram and Pinterest for heaters made from plant pots but they all seemed to require drilling and more work than I wanted to try. Then by chance last month, I found this post on www.ikeahackers.net. It required no drilling or skills of any kind. 🙂 Since I was in my no spend challenge, I waited patiently until this month.
I’m not sure that I feel any great heat from it but it does make the room cozy.
I rounded out today with a trip to the not so great Winners and managed to find a sweater and a pair of shoes.
Now I just want to sleep, this time change is hurting me. Going to cook some shrimp and brussel sprouts before retiring to the couch for a couple of hours before bed.
Hope your last week was good and the coming one even better.
