Three Things Thursday

1. I just had my first Christmas orange. By this I mean a mandarin orange. And I must specify that it was a Japanese mandarin. Stores might try to entice you to buy the Chinese mandarins – they’re usually cheaper – but they just don’t compare! This is a big thing in my household – once we’ve started getting oranges (by the boxful, of course) we know Christmas is just around the corner. Spud was excited to try it with me, but once it was in the bowl he turned up his nose, which I was fully expecting. He deigned to suck some juice out of a piece, but that was it… I love these oranges since it’s a tradition that Santa leaves one in the bottom of our stockings. On Colin’s request Santa leaves his to cool in the fridge.


2. I went for a run today. Not a long one, but enough to get my legs moving (9-1/2km). Felt really good since I haven’t been out to run since Sunday.

3. In case you’ve been in a cave/haven’t been reading my blog/didn’t care somehow missed it – and it’s all I’ve been talking about for a week – I giving a $35 CSN Stores gift card away and the contest is open until tomorrow night. I’ll announce the winner on Saturday.

  1. Ha! I remember when 9 1/2 km used to be a short run. Oh those were the days!! 9 1/2 km is now my long run…one I haven't run in over a year. But I guess pregnancy and birthing a baby are a half decent excuse for not running until now.
