"Me Before You" by Jojo Moyes. It's about a women taking care of a quadriplegic. It sounds like a sad book, but it's actually quite funny at times - as the character has a funny and dry sense of humor. It also really opens my eyes to things I've never really thought about with being w/c-bound.
My Friday night date with 2 of my girlfriends. We are having dinner and going to a movie based of a book we read -- "If I Stay". Excited to see it! Fully prepared for tears, since I cried during the book!
Well, In 4 days I will begin wear jeans again. (September 1) Even if it's 100+ degrees out. It's September. I'm ready to boycott summer! I miss jean and sweaters so much.......
I am currently drinking a lot of Bigelow Green tea with Mint. I made a huge batch of it for our party Saturday, so had leftovers. Now I'm kind of hooked!!
The rain. We have had 1-2 good rains/week over the past month - which we need so bad. The humidity is brutal, but I'm okay with it if it's bringing moisture to our dry ground!!
I have to brag on my red-pepper pesto I made for the party. It may be my new favorite. It had roasted red peppers (about 2 cups), 1/2 cup fresh basil leaves, 1/4 cup grated parmesan, several cloves garlic, salt, pepper, and I added some lemon.
We used it for dipping bread @ the party - but Monday night I took leftovers and mixed it with whole-grain pasta. Yum!!
Lattes. Lately, I splurge at least once/week and get a Skinny Vanilla latte at Starbucks. So good when it hits your lips...
The current theme of my life is pondering what I want to be when I grow up. And then realizing I already am a grown up. Trying to come up with a great master plan. Getting frustrated. And just forgetting about it and praying I can figure myself out.
Calm and quiet.... I haven't been feeling the greatest the past 2 days (I think my body is trying to fight something off) - so I'm finally just listening, and letting it rest and heal. I skipped swim practice this morning and my planned gym workout tonight. It's amazing how much spare time comes about when you take 2 hours worth of training out of the day! ;)
Current New Find
Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar! "Bragg's, Raw, Unfiltered, With the Mother". - It's supposed to change your life and make you super-healthy, apparently. For me? It tastes better than the Kroger-brand cider vinegar.
I will say I tried the 2 oz vinegar, 1 tbsp. honey, and water drink that was supposed to taste good?..... No.
I'm still in my work clothes - so I'm wearing a white A-line skirt with a navy and white cardigan. It's one of my favorite work outfits! It comfortable with a touch of nautical :)
Not being able to breath when I run. I assume it's the humidity. I'm too stubborn to take my inhaler.
I've found a new and efficient way to do audits at work - and that's my triumph this week. I love audits. It makes some odd part of my brain strangely happy!
Current Wish List
New running shoes. I'm annoyed that my Mizuno Wave Creations are so expensive!!!
"Pulling the trigger" and registering for my half ironman. It's
