Officially part of the community

17 Aug

According to Mark, now that we have library cards, we are officially part of the Milton community. And I would have to agree with him. We visited the library last night and registered for library cards.

Mark hung around the magazines and I perused through almost all of the shelves and different departments. It’s a brand new library, very modern with new equipment. There is a lot of seating space and the furniture is clean. The children’s section is very exciting with a lot of attractions for children whereas the teens and adult sections aren’t as captivating. Clearly, their main focus is drawing children into the library. But they may be forgetting to keep teens and adults coming through those doors. Anyway, I digress… This was our haul from the library

Mark took out some magazines and I have the books. I’ve got a long train and plane ride next week so I’m sure they will keep me entertained.

On a lighter, I made a silly mistake last night. I bought glass jars from the Dollar Store for flour, rice, sugar, etc. As I was filling them, I noticed I had two bags of whole wheat flour. So I added one bag and then the second bag. As it was pouring into the jar I thought to myself: “Hmm, this flour is darker and isn’t sliding out of the bag as easily…oh uh.” That is when I realized the first bag of “flour” was in fact whey protein.

I felt bad throwing out the flour and protein so Mark just said: “Just scoop out the flour.” And that’s what I did. So we may have some protein enriched flour and some whole wheat protein. I’m sure it’ll be fine.

I’m gearing up for a 26km run tomorrow. The weather is supposed to be perfect: 21C, sunny and low humidity. Hopefully I can finish my audiobook version of Anna Karenina and move onto Oryk and Crake.
