(Skip to the end for Giveaway ANNOUNCEMENT!)
Stop Counting! I keep telling myself that, which is a good thing because I don’t want to add up how many times I used my glue gun or ate spiraled vegetables this weekend. I noticed this weekend how exhausted my physical body felt. Saturday is my rest day (just walking!) and my body needed it, but my mind kept fighting it. Yet, even on Sunday, usually waking up ready to jog, my head hurt and my right foot was a bit painful (Plantar Facitis you stink). Seriously struggling with ALLOWING myself to REST this weekend. I feel like a “loser!”
But Paul Cope your fame is revered and I heart you World Cusine. Incense is lit in honor of your enlightened beings for elevating my weekend past my irritable mood and anxiety.
Paul Cope invented the glue gun for Proctor and Gamble (momentarily pardoned for their lack of environmental saviness….thank God for businesses like Laughing Girafee!). Not only did I manufacture another earring holder for a gift, I re-designed a a cheap, cheap lamp not once, but twice (wasn’t satisfied, I guess). I love OWLS, and thus, here is my rather kindergarten quality creation (reminder: blue christmas trees are still not acceptable if you’ve passed the 5th grade).
World Cuisine produces this vegetable spiraler that ins the past three days murdered cucumbers, carrots, parsnips, zucchini, a rutabaga, Jicima, an apple, and one hard banana (all males are permitted to cringe here).
Ah! The communion of my weekend, redeeming my anxiety and sense of failure (um,my granola bread? Yep didn’t rise and when I tried to make homemade cracker cereal from it, which would have been divine, had I been engrossed in a game of search-the-crevices-of-the-dryer-for-that-purple-sock, and forgot to turn off the 450 degree oven)
A close second: homemade americanos each morning, farmer’s market cheese and heirloom tomatoes, not losing socks in the laundry (a tough price to pay). And yours?
