Nothing much going on...

Really. Life has been quiet and mostly uneventful. Nothing much to report.

We discovered why our cat Leo has such soft & shiny fur; I caught him with his whole mouth over the pump of my moisturizer, pumping it into his mouth and eating it. Oh well, it doesn't seem to hurt him, and we can't hide everything under the counter.

Last weekend we went to the Winter Farmer's Market in Vancouver. It was kinda neat, but not even nearly as awesome as the one in Fredericton. We bought some mushrooms, microgreens & some pastries, aswell as some farm eggs. Not much of a haul for the distance we drove, but a fun morning nonetheless.

One of the cookies we bought was a chocolate-chilli cookie, which inspired me to make my own. Mine came out with a bit more of a kick than the bought ones, so I have dubbed them'Volcano Cookies'. Sean loves them, and they're perfect for dieting as they are low in fat and will set your insides on fire if you try to eat more than one. You have been forewarned.

Back to the farmer's market, if you are ever looking to make some easy cash, I have just the thing for you: grow sprouts in an urban area. Those crazy west-enders were paying $5 a pop for little containers of various sprouts, about half a pint. From what I understand, sprouts are quick & easy to grow, and take very little room. All you need is seed, water and a steady supply of yuppies.

Tonight we are going to out to dinner with some friends of Sean's. Unfortunately, the wife of his friend has some mental issues, and will often at the last minute, refuse to leave the house. We'll see how it goes.

Avoid the pies though. As nice as they look, and as wonderful as they smell, mine was full of hair :(
