but no long weekend for me! one of the anti-perks of the new job.. we keep retail hours. but our building is closed. so, um. well, whatever.
i got the lizard out! he was on my dashboard this morning when i went to leave for work. i had to wrestle with him a bit (luckily he didn't drop his tail off in sacrifice!) and then got to set him out in the yard. :)
the weather is ugly here. i don't mind so much, but elliot is pacing the house whining. he'll come back in here twice before i'm through with this post to make sure i know he's still miserable. he cries so quietly you can hardly hear him.. which makes it even more pathetic.
today at whole foods, i bought some organic valley
soymilk! it so warms my heart to see "la farge, wis." on the label of a product i bought in south florida. i almost bought some cheese too, but decided that eating something fatty just to support the farmers back home was kinda silly. they already got $.50 extra for the soymilk (but i'm guessing it's wholesome & yummy enough to make up for it). fyi - organic valley also does meat. if you're going to eat meat, go organic or, at the very least, natural.
just because you can't give meat up in your diet doesn't excuse you from eating mindfully and responsibly, ya dig?
thanks to my job, i've had the opportunity this past week to talk to some local farmers and business folks. it's surprising me how much it warms me; after browsing their websites and talking to them, i'm really quite.. touched. and want them to do well. i love that folks out there still get to do what they have a passion for, even in our crazy world of big brands and big business.
balu is gone to europe until june. anyone wanna party, give me a call. of course, by "party" i mean watch TV in the living room
beach bootcamp workout in the a.m... i wish i had one of those things every damn day. i really enjoy them. if i could just get my ass in gear, i could be more regular about running & gyming it.. i try. but sometimes, i just need a nap.
in other news, i can't find this one picture that i want to, but here's a consolation:
the other one shows the baby (zahara) sleeping on brad's shoulder. it's true; there's really nothing cuter than a man with an itty-bitty baby, esp. if that man is big and yummy. find it in this week's OK! magazine if you want. :) grocery lines gotta pay off somehow, right?
