Home Is Where The Nurture Is

Hey beautiful Oh She Glows readers!

So my commute today turned out to be pretty good!

I don’t know if it just wasn’t a busy day for cars on the road by random chance or if my ‘leave late, stay late’ plan is working.

By leaving at 9:30am I miss a lot of the rush hour traffic, and leaving at 6:30pm at night, I also miss quite a bit of it! Sweet!

I picked up Eric from the train station on the way home and it just turned out that it was perfect timing– he arrived only 2 minutes before I did. :)

We came home and instantly felt relaxed and ready to spend some downtime together. We had a quick dinner (nothing fancy– just Quinoa and Spagetti Sauce over toast and salad), and then started to unpack more stuff! :)

I find some boxes to be more fun unpacking than others…..

Like books!! :D


See any you have or recognize?

I am missing Marley & Me for some reason! I can’t wait until the movie comes out this Christmas… :D

Eric measured the spot for my treadmill while Sketchie attached the measuring tape

I smothered Sketchie with love as usual…


His eyes are crying out for help....


I had my new favourite night time snack of Spelt cereal, Almond Milk, Banana, and Almond Butter (on the end of the spoon a la Kath)- it is delicious! The Almond Milk and Spelt cereal gives it such a nutty flavour and the Almond Butter is a savory cherry on top.


Do you have a ‘go-to’ night time snack?


I got caught up on some favourite blogs (shown here is Kris Carr’s Crazy Sexy Cancer blog) with a huge cup of Bigelow’s Peppermint Tea.

I love nights that feed and nurture the soul. :)

Tell me, what did you do to relax today?

Nighty night! I’m off to watch the Britney Interview on You Tube!

22 days til Santa comes!

Sketchie is just too cute!!!

After I got home today, I put on my new comfy pants from the fiance, snuggled up on the couch, and watched TV… great relaxation!

Your blog has a beautiful layout! :)

Saw your comment on KathEats about the FP program on Foodbuzz. Do you already have an account there? Once you set up an account and have had it for a while (a month or so) then apply for the FP program. They will get in touch with you if you are selected. It might take a while, I think it was a few weeks before I got an email from them. Good luck!

Your cat is gorgeous!

My go to night snack is usually either yogurt or a homemade muffin….

Okay, forgive me for commenting on a YEARS old post (I love your blog and am reading from the beginning so I’ll have “the scoop”!) – I LOVE the black jacket youre wearing in the photo with Sketchie. Is it lululemon?
