Brownie (points)

At the height of my "feeling crappy and lazy and useless" day yesterday, Billy surprised me with an early Christmas present. I wanted to wait to open it but he said he wanted me to be able to use it for the last few weeks of class. So I opened it up to find... Vegan Lunch Box, the cookbook! I don't know if I'll be able to use it before the break, since I barely have time to do groceries, but now I have something to read and I can plan for next semester!

The book actually gives you meal plans (lunch menus) and not just recipes, so that you get an idea of what kind of sides, like snacks, fruits and veggies, you can bring. Brownie points for Billy! I didn't think I would be getting this anytime soon. I sent the link to Billy, and he said he passed it on to his parents, but I didn't want anyone to have to order something online for me. Turns out he ordered it as soon as he got the link! Freakin' sweetie.

The homework club where I do my placement for school was great last night. Unfortunately, my regular student has just moved foster homes and didn't come, but I got paired with a girl in Grade 2. It was fun working with her, and we painted animal masks. Mine was a tiger, but I don't know if it was very obvious, haha.

Yay! I love it when boys do cute things like that :) I had to buy my own copy and got laughed at for it. I did tell Kevin that I would make lunches for him if he got us each our lunchbox... ;)
