Sun is up!
And I’m feeling just about as large as the sun itself. Even though I felt great on my run yesterday, today a walk seemed like a much better idea I can’t cover nearly as much ground walking as I can running, but don’t worry — I still was able to find some street furniture for you during my short stroll.
I’m a walking machine this week! Yesterday evening I walked to and from The Gulch neighborhood on a beautiful night:
Destination was the swanky LA Jackson bar, where I met my friend Liz for happy hour! The bartender stirred up some mocktail magic for me. Something involving pomegranate, ginger, and lemon. I’ve found that a lot of bartenders get really excited to invent mocktails when I ask them to. Maybe they get tired of mixing up the same cocktails all the time?
Fun fact: Liz and I have been friends for more than 20 years! I think we started hanging out at about age 5. So fun to catch up with her.
Another lifelong friend: My mom, obviously. She came over last night to watch another DRAMATIC, EPIC episode of The Bachelor and made chicken posole soup for us. Yum.
In other food news from my counter, I spotted organic shells and cheese at Aldi the other day for about $2 a box and wondered: Could they possibly be as good as Annie’s organic shells and cheese, one of my favorite foods for the past nine months (at $4 a box)? I’m excited to announce that the answer is YES. That means you can eat twice as many shells and cheese for the same price. Looks like my meal plan is set for the week.
Yet another day of deep discussion here on the blog. Time to head to my now-weekly doctor’s appointment and get this day started!
