I’ve got a case of the Mondays. It’s a 12 hour work day for me, so I’m usually dragging buns when all is said and done (like right now as I write this post). But what gets me through this long day, and the rest of the week (besides the occasional glass
es of red wine) is a pop of life and colors.
I’m talking about flowers.
Afternoon yoga from a few weeks ago. It felt so, so good.
Real-time: 30 minutes.
Also, I need to get new sports bra. Mine don’t seem to compress anymore :-\
“I drink champagne when I’m happy, and when I’m sad.
Sometimes I drink it when I’m alone.
When I have company, I consider it obligatory.
I trifle with it if I am not hungry and drink it when I am.
Otherwise I never touch it…unless I’m thirsty”

By New England standards the last few days have been exceptionally balmy. To give you an idea, on Monday it was 25 degrees and I was upset that I had to drive to work that day because I would have much rather walked. Yes, we’re crazy for living here, but we suffer through these mad months for three glorious months of summer. However, at least four of those weeks are filled with rain….Enough with this math though!
When it comes to drinks, I generally get by on water, tea, wine, and champagne. Very well rounded, I know, but occasionally I want something with a milky consistency that doesn’t involve dairy. Nothing against the stuff, but like many people dairy sometimes has something against me!
That’s why I decided to try my hand at making my own coconut milk. It’s a really simple activity that is great on the weekend and you’ll only need 2 ingredients.
