Guess where I was at 6:30 a.m.?

Sobey's - open 24 hours

I you said grocery store, you are correct.  I forgot to set my alarm last night and woke at 5:45 a.m. rather than the usual 5 a.m.  Rather than rush out the door to run 8 miles, I decided on the double-workout as I did on Monday.

Eyes closed but wide awake

The light bulb went on, as I realized that a 24 hour Sobey’s is about 15 minutes from our place.  The exact amount of time I wanted to run this morning.  So, off I went with my mini-backpack to fetch the parsley I needed for my bean salad lunch.

In case you are wondering how got a photo of myself, I propped the camera on a display and set the auto-timer.

I have taken my lunch to work 14 straight days and was headed to 15 days but a workmate has asked me to lunch with her tomorrow. We will dine at the Auberge du Pommier and probably order their lunch special.

As for the bean salad, it is an extremely easy salad to compose. It is an adaptation of a salad recipe I found years ago in Metropolitan Home magazine.
