Then the husband turned my day around by grabbing me a delicious iced coffee from my favorite shop, and watching SportsCenter with the little guy so that I could reset my morning with searing-hot, leg-shaving shower. Much better. We spent the rest of the morning enjoying the refreshingly crisp weather at the playground, and I think it is going to be a peaceful and lovely end to the week after all.
Making this Friday good:
Yellow roses cut from the front yard.
Great supermarket scores:
Yogi Granola Crisps are like tiny, healthy cookies to sprinkle over Greek yogurt (my summer obsession).
Back to Nature Crackers are my favorite, and these Sunflower Basil ones have incredible flavor.
Casal Garcia Vinho Verde is my go-to summer white: crisp with tiny bubbles, and very easy on the wallet.
This guy has been eating like a champ! Here he's stealing my salad at lunch today (you're welcome to it, little man). Things he's downed in the last 24 hours include: a grilled cheese sandwich, carrot sticks and red pepper slices, and a large slice of spiced raisin-walnut bread. Perhaps there is hope for us yet? Also check out his bike helmet, which he has mostly refused to take off since his dad got it for him last weekend. They're hitting the bike paths together, and that's a beautiful thing.
I've logged about fifteen miles this week in runs around the pond, and feel so much the better for it.
Here's to a weekend of good food, good rest, and good health for all of us.
