I Can Cook!

Again tonight, I made dinner. I am getting better at this with each recipe. Tonight I made pasta with peppers and sausage. It was really yummy but I didn't like the sausage all that much. Next time I will try a different type of maybe a different kind of meat all together. I just got mild italian sausages but they didn't taste too good in my opinion. I will see what Anthony has to say about them when we has his bowl tonight at work.

 All topped off with some parmesan cheese. Was delicious :)
 We got a new bed and duvet recently. We waited a whole month for our bed to come in from Sears! I just love the leather head board. The duvet we got from Ikea and it wrinkles far too easily!  I like the color and the stitch sort of pattern at the top but the wrinkles drive me insane. It always makes it look sloppy. I guess we are sloppy sleepers.
On that note, it is time for bed. Have to work the morning shift at BVEC tomorrow. Good night !


Save A Life

Hello again, I fell out of the blogging world again for almost a month. But I am back with a bunch of images I have collected this month. The set of pictures I will show you are not nice images. I hope no one is offended by them and you shouldn't look if you don't like "gross" images. This is a cat we got from animal control. She was found outside, no idea what happened. Two guesses are either extreme cat fight or some sort of mechanical trauma. The first photo is when we got the cat on presentation. Her wounds were massive and deep, and the tissue surrounding was not healthy any longer.
 Under a heavy sedation I was able to clip her fur and clean up around the wounds. Followed by flushing of the wounds. The doctor then started to put her back together by suturing the larger wounds and leaving the smaller open to heal on their own.
 This is the poor girl on recovery. She was the sweetest little thing. Never once did she complain or try to scratch. She just wanted us to help her. Her face was too precious <3 
 That day we saved a life. She had originally come in for euthanasia ordered by the officer who found her as they didn;t think she could be helped. We all disagreed. Happy to say she is doing great, and will be up for adoption once her wounds heal.
 A few weeks ago me and Anthony went on a nature walk in Waterdown and it led to this nice waterfall.  We got some great shots until my camera died :( I love being outside in the fall weather.
 A hello from Mae West not looking to impressed actually. ...
 And a "feed me" from Aeries. She always puts her paw in her dish when its time for me to feed her!
The is the clinic cat Gideon from my new job at BVEC. He is quite a character and really hilarious. He probably shouldn't be in the med cupboard but I had to snap a photo first.

I have been at my new job for almost two weeks now and its still so intimidating. Much different than regular practice. I feel like a new grad all over again and I can't remember anything. Its going to be a tough transition but I fell like I am really going to like it. Once I get settled in and am off training I will actually have a bit more time off than I did having to work 7 days a week to bring in a good pay check. Now I can work 4 days a week and make the same.  Right now I still feel like I am super busy all the time. Sometimes there are times when I am bored at home, but I don't to do anything. I get stuck in a lazy haze and just want to sleep. Then on the flip side of that I don't want to sleep because that means my day off will be over and ill have to go back to work in the morning.

Halloween is just around the corner ! I got my costume ready and will not reveal it until halloween itself. All I can say is that I am super excited for it, and I hope my artistic skills can pull through.

Still Here

I am still here ! Just a bit busy like always. I needed to do this post though, otherwise I'd keep putting it off forever and then my blog would fall into the abyiss like before.

so some exciting news! I have finally quit my full time job at Wilson ST & landed a great job oppertunity at an all day emerge & critial care clinic. I start in two weeks and I am pretty nervous but also very excited. I am also a bit sad to be leaving my crew though. Everyone was quite great to work with and I will probably never find another job with that sort of work atmosphere but it was time for me to move on. Hopefully this new job will be everything I ever wanted it to be.

Anyhow, a few pictures that I've taken over the past week or so. This week I tried my hand at cooking dessert instead of main. So I made some simple oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. They came out amazing. I plan on making another batch by the end of the week.
The next picture is a project I have been working on for a few weeks and never completed. One day while I was at work Anthony hung all the frames for me. I had basically been saving my shopping bags and made cute frames from them. I had originally planned to have them in my closet with all my clothes but this works well. We plan to expand this when we get more shopping bags.
Last week we did some work on my car. Well - Anthony did. Below is a picture of my exhaust before..
 Below is a picture of the new exhaust system. Only cost 80$ used and sounds amazing. I feel like it looks much better on my car than the previous one did.
So thats it for now, but this week and next should follow with some good pictures of Thanksgiving food and such.
