the past couple of days have been cold. i've been working outside in winter weather, peeling ice from mulch and mucking about in wet leaves. ending my days, walking into the warmth of my home is heaven. i like to keep it at least 75 degrees in my house, i'm not all about the layering thing...the less clothing i have to wear, the better. a beater and jeans are all i need.
went on an excursion with jonathan the other day. we took a lunch break in oakland and went in search of my noodle place so that i could get pad thai. on the way i passed a tiben store, popped a u-ey and got blissfully sucked into singing bowls and gongs and incense...
i purchased a singing bowl for myself, a new cd, 2 pairs of pants, 2 shirts and a bunch of things for love.
finally made it to the noodle place but was dissappointed. they changed the store around a bit since my last visit about a month ago, now you have to order at the counter, then sit down and wait for your food with a number, but they don't seem to know how to use the number, they just bring out plates of food and walk around calling out the names of each plate hoping to find an owner. now, i've loved their pad thai since the first time i tried it but this time it was horrid. the smell was not of peanuts anymore but of wet, perhaps dead, dog. and the taste well...was worse than the smell. at this point, we leave, i'm still hungry because i could only choke down 3 bites of my lunch and we had to get back to work. stepped outside to wind, rain and hail. no more work for the rest of the day.
that was thursday. yesterday i spent the day working out, cleaning the house a bit and watching the L word.
this morning i woke up first, which was nice. i like having my own space and time alone at home. i made a cup of tea and worked out, then meditated and gave myself reiki and a mud masque. watched a little L word and am soon planning on going to a coffee house across town.
