E-Work

40 comments

Good evening!

Thank you for sharing your thought’s in this morning’s Friend in the Mirror post..lots of interesting insights and stories.

Today I had what I call an ‘E-work’ day- which is a ‘paperwork’ day just on the computer, electronically. I have a Retail Sales Tax return due Friday so I have been working on that as well as inputting all my receipts, banking, and invoices. Mileage tracking didn’t get done yet.  I need to start setting the time aside each week to chip away at it because I hadn’t touched my business tracking document since my corporate tax return in the winter. It wasn’t a pretty sight!

I actually have G-cal email me and pop-up every Friday to remind me to do my E-work, but I have been ignoring the messages for about 6 months now!

[For my post on how to use Gmail Calendar see here. Clearly, I am an example of what not to do! lol]

Dinner tonight was the quickest kind…the leftover kind. Hallelujah.

Featuring leftover Patty Pan Stuffed Squash:

Cute as a button!

The stuffed zucchini was yummy too.

and leftover Beet, Apple, Orange, and Raspberry salad:

I admit this wasn’t the best flavour pairing, but I had to use up the leftovers before we pick up the CSA tonight so it was this or the garbage. I am happy to report I ate almost all of the produce this week! Eric helped too. Teamwork! Our two crispers are ready for another fill.

I will leave you with some of my favourite links over the past week…enjoy!

Tonight, I hope to accomplish several things: 1) Finish tax return, 2) Hang smallest collage of food photos, 3) fold laundry (darks), 4) Upload more photography prints to online store, 5) Garbage night, 6) READ EPL.

I will be lucky if I get one of the above done, but crazier things have happened. lol. Have a GREAT night!

I’m terrible too about ignoring my calendar reminders! It kinda defeats the purpose, but I’d still rather have some sort of visibility of what I’m supposed to be doing!

I for one am tackling that cherry/banana/coconut bread recipe later tonight. I am counting on it to satisfy a 3-fold craving I have for muffins, bread, and carby sweetness…oh yes.

I do the same thing with my “To-Do” lists… I think I have FAR more time to get things done then I actually do. Isn’t it the most rewarding feeling when you are successfully able to cross off everything on your list, though?! Love it.

Oooh I missed that patty pan squash last night, they really are so adorable! Looks scrumptious! Good luck with all that you need to get done tonight, sending productive thoughts! =P

I can’t imagine all the work you need to do on the computer. That would drive me mad!

Isn’t it amazing how sitting at a computer all day can be so draining and exhausting? I had a computer day today too and BLAH by the end of it.

Great links! I’ve just started taking advantage of the Google calender, and so far it’s been really helpful, although I admit to ignoring some things, too :D

Ooh I’m gonna go read the link about the effects of prolonged sitting. Seeing as how I sat in front of my computer ALL DAY LONG, I’m sure this will make me feel superb :) Oh well, I’m headed to the gym soon so all is not lost!

Anya @ Fitness & Sunshine July 21, 2010

Doing a little bit of those tasks each week really helps… that way you won’t have to have a ton to do later. But sometimes I’m the same way, I’d rather relax and do what I love and then have a pile of work later. It’s worth it sometimes! :)

I love making to do lists, even if there is not way I’ll get it all done. Some things will get pushed to the following day, but the intent was there!

Argh this just reminded me that I need to do my taxes. I have papers everywhere AND seeing as we moved house recently I suspect that some of it is tucked away on boxes eeeek

I am a total to-do list girl! It is the only way I can stayed organzied. I usually end up doing the tasks a little at a time over the week. Your little sqaush look so good! You spotted that I have an absolute LOVE of your VOO…I have plans for some for breakfast in the morning! :)

What cute squashes!!

I list my whole day out, sometimes twice! For some reason I work better if I physically write it out in my planner with a pencil. I can’t use a calendar online, etc.

xxoo

Caitlin July 21, 2010

I’m totally a planner pad girl, but I just set up a G-Cal with your instructions, because let’s face it…you’re usually right about things as I’ve discovered while perusing your blog. (short-time reader, first time caller!) I just about peed my pants when I realized I could PRINT my G-Cal! Seriously, WHERE was this in college?! So thanks. For g-cal, for green monsters, for VOO, and for running and cooking inspiration!

Your patty pan squash are so cute. I would say that eating stuffed squash and eating it in the form of zucchini bread are my two favorite ways. Can’t wait to see what you get next in your CSA!

That ny times article about prolonged sitting is kinda depressing :/
I’ve been trying to get up from my desk more often at work and do my desk stretches but sometimes I’m so busy and I don’t have too many tasks to do that doesn’t involve being at the computer or the phone.
I wonder if just standing at your desk helps…

Thanks for all the great links – I emailed myself the no bake desserts to check out later.

Thanks for the link about hoop dancing. ^^

Having recently gotten into it myself, I’d fully recommend it to anyone who is looking for some type of fun, creative workout.

And for anyone interested in more information, there are tons of awesome videos and tutorials on youtube, as well as an awesome forum for all aspects of hoop dancing (tricks, making hoops, tutorials, get-togethers, etc…) at HoopCity.

Hi Angela,

I just wanted to share with you that I made some of your Frosty No-bake Glo Cakes last night and I took them into work this morning. We were having a really horrible morning when I suddenly remember my little treats in the freezer so I whipped them out to surprise everybody… they were such a hit! And they really lifted the mood! And my boss didn’t even complain when I got a big mashed banana/peanut butter smudge on my files… oooops! :)

Thanks for sharing such a great, simple recipe!

Angela (Oh She Glows) July 22, 2010

Glad you enjoy them…I had them for breakfast one morning too…they were great!
