She has jaws of steel
She can run with scissors
And can crush glass with her bare hand….
I had an accident this morning
I was trying to separate the green part of the French press from the beaker and somehow my hand just crushed the glass (and it’s pretty thick!) It took a HUGE gash out of my right ring finger and slit my middle finger and palm a bit.
I’m really lucky, actually.
I started blacking out so I followed my mom’s age-old advice and laid down on the kitchen floor
[This was not a reenactment – I really did tell Matt to grab the camera!]
With just 30 minutes until yoga, I didn’t know if I’d make it, but my stomach settled and I got my strength back and I double bandaged my hand up and went on my merry way.
Bikram Round III
Today’s Bikram class was actually pretty good! I know yoga is all about the instructor and today’s was much better – helping me with poses and using a soothing voice. Probably related, I had a much better practice and was able to challenge myself further. I still don’t think Bikram is for me, but if it were the only kind of yoga that existed, I’d participate.
Another "Why we moved here" moment
When I was biking home in my nice bike lane and came to a stop light, there were literally about 6 other bikers all around me. Most looked like students on their way home from class. I LOVE how many other bikers there are!
I arrived home at 2PM (in the accident commotion I didn’t have time to eat a snack before yoga, but thankfully I was not too hungry during class or my ride home thanks to a later breakfast).
Blueberries? Grapes? Cherries?
Damson PLUMS. They’re the size of big green grapes but very plum-like otherwise. We picked them up at the market yesterday.
Most of the time I hate leftovers, but today’s burrito sounded SO appealing! Probably because it tasted fresh last night and not all greasy (I think I mostly hate leftovers because eating really rich and/or greasy food at home isn’t as appealing as it is in the nice atmosphere of a restaurant). But more casual leftovers (read = lighter/healthier) are very appealing.
Bean + Cheese + Portabello + Pepper burrito complemented with fresh tomato, green pepper and basil plus Cholula!
Totally hit the spot!
Pile ‘O plums (a.k.a. "Plumbs" in our house)
We are not sure which direction we are going to go with coffee. We might just get a replacement for the French press, or we might actually buy a real coffee maker. The rule has to be that we get a stainless steel carafe because we shattered our previous coffee maker’s glass one so much that we gave the whole thing away out of frustration. Living at Karen’s this summer made me love the sound of a coffee maker turned on OR we might just get both!
