Birthday Oats and Snow.

Something miraculous and unexplainable has happened folks.

When I went to bed I was 26 years old ... and when I woke up, I was 27.

I thought they said sleep helps to keep you young - liars!

I decided there is nothing I can do about it. So I made myself a drink.

Just kidding ...

It is just some antioxidants. You know - to stop the aging process in its tracks.

I also made my favourite oats.

Mocha Coconut Oats

1/2 cup coffee, 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond breeze, 1/2 cup quick oats
Sprinkle of unsweetened organic coconut, and mini chocolate chips (you know - for the antioxidants).

I also woke up to this lovely gift from mother nature:

Luckily it is supposed to be +15 degrees Celsius on Saturday, so this should all melt away.

Does it snow where you live?

Have a great day everyone!

I grew up in northern BC where it got COLD and lots of snow. Now I'm living in southern BC where there is much less snow. We haven't got hit with snow yet, but judging by the rest of Canada it won't be long!

That's HILARIOUS about your "martini" though, haha. I was like WHAT, a cosmo in the morning!! Hahaha

Hope you have a great birthday!!

happy birthday! portland almost NEVER gets snow-when we do it shuts the city down because no one knows how to drive in the snow! there are no snowplows/sanders to keep the streets safe, and no one has snow tires.... kids got a week off from school last year because we had an "arctic blast". it was like 3 inches.
