Of course, I've taken a few breaks. I had lunch around 2:15. I went for a run at 7:30, then had dinner, ...and then baked some cookies. Because I had 2 overripe bananas that really needed to be turned into something. I was going to make breakfast muffins...or a cake...but I've done those before, and I wanted something new.
But before I forget...the "oh duh" moment of the day. My toaster has been slowly accumulating a collection of crumbs for a long time. I have never gotten around to removing them. Today, I decided it was time. I was moving the toaster to a new location, so while I was carrying it, I figured I would dump out the crumbs. The only way to do that is to pick up the toaster and tilt it over a trash can, right? Being the bright person that I am, that's what I did. And out slid a very thin metal tray, with all the crumbs. Wait, there was a tray in the bottom? All I had to do was slide out the tray, and voila! crumbs come out easily. How was I not aware of this tray's existence? Well...next time I want to clean my toaster...it will be so much simpler. Lesson learned.

And here's a picture of my dinner, because it was oh-so-delicious.
Perfectly pan-fried sweet potatos and leeks (2 of my favorite-est foods) and leftover Chicken-Fried Steak
Aaaaand a picture of my new canisters. Because I finally decided it was time to get some new ones with better seals. And then of course I had to label them just for fun... another cleaning break.
