Friday Highlights: Ate a lot of Brownie Biscotti! I guess I must have been feeling down, because all afternoon long, I was criticizing my ugly toes. So I scurried over to The Pedicure Room, where Ms. Julie pampered my tootsies. This place didn’t necessarily emit a ‘heavenly’ setting (the noise of the traffic outside and lack of burning candles dampered the mood a bit) Julie more than compensated with the treatment. No yucky whirly machines here…the feet soaked in a gorgeous copper bin with all organic, HOMEMADE ingredients. The touch here is all personal…she even picked a chipper color for me.
I needed some more TLC I guess because after getting home late, I whipped up a shredded chickpea, zucchini and corn salad and served it up with a smooth Carmenyre and a small personal “pizza” of lavender and anise goat cheese and grilled figs. Delicious, but not the blues buster I craved….
Saturday: This was one of those days that absolutely sucked in like a black hole. I engaged in activities that usually fueled me: a nice nature hike with friend, browsing through the library, walking through a community street fair, reading, eating freshly spun mozzarella, and meeting friends for coffee. None of it worked to elevate my mood. Things lacked flavor, and I was irritated at my snarky version of myself. Have days like that?
Sunday: AH! I woke up in a better place with myself. No need to try and figure out “why” Sat puckered like pimpled lemon, just moved ahead with the day. First, I finished a cool project of taking a $2 frame nabbed from Good Will and creating a new earring holder by taking out the back and stapling on a portion from a discarded window screen. Cool, huh? I can craft you up one in exchange for some PB2!
After a spontaneous jog along a waterfronkpark, I re-refueled. Seriously, I am crazed about Laughing Giraffe Granola….I mixed it up today with a new combo of Pom-Tea and Soy Milk…Seriously Yummy. I promise a Granola Giveaway soon, but keep your EYES open for a fun Special K challenge coming tomorrow.
