I’ve got a peaceful, easy feeling…and I know it won’t let me down…
The hippy in me loves that song. It’s the same hippy in me that loves to garden, recycle and ride my bike to work. I definitely took advantage of two-wheeled transportation today. Linzi ‘s post about riding her Sea Breeze (love that!) to work reminded me I needed to follow suit. It’s a beautiful day and I have been waiting for it to stop raining so I can take part in National Bike Month . The month is almost over! I was afraid foul weather would mean I couldn’t celebrate in all my Physio Fit bicycle glory.
Don’t worry — I totally did. Biking to work saved on gas helped the Earth out doubled as cross training for today. Awesome!
Pre-cycle trip to the office, I was up bright and early after three snooze button pushes and enjoyed a Green Monster Smoothie for breakfast. Look how foggy it was! I felt like I was in Ireland.
Okay, okay. A stretch, I know. I was still in the Midwest. A girl can pretend.
We were out of regular coffee beans this morning, so Sam fired up his espresso percolator and super charged our mornings with a little bit of the strong stuff.
I only had about a half a cup…twice. So, okay, a full cup of espresso. It’s fine, I am a coffee addict, I can handle it. Here’s a fun tidbit: Sam is actually the reason I’m such a coffee drinker. When we were getting to know each other in Spain, we couldn’t really hang out at each other’s host homes, so we’d meet for coffee after class. We’d sit for hours, talking and laughing and doing homework (only sometimes…actually, hardly ever ), learning a little more about each other. We even became regulars at this one shop, Esperandote. They started on our orders when we walked in the door. It was like a Spanish, caffeinated version of Cheers. *sigh* Memories.
Lunch consisted of leftovers (tortellini with spinach/tomato “sauce”), cucumbers, grapes, the last of the farmer’s market strawberries *super sad face* and some mixed nuts to snack on later.
Nutritious and delicious. I don’t think it’s just a coincidence those words rhyme, do you?
See you later tonight! I’m meeting up with friends for a Young Professionals Happy Hour after work. Dinner is already set and ready to be ate. Ate up! Stay tuned to see what I built for the ‘buds (taste buds, that is).
