Well, Plans seems to be down (or at least not loading for me) so I'm forced to update LJ instead! Oh, the complications of a technological lifestyle.
Some things I've done recently:
~Attended the Cherry Street Farmer's Market with Lissie
~Drank tea and a raspberry scone
~Got caught in the awesome thunderstorm yesterday morning while walking back to the car
~Took shelter at Border's, where I spent the rest of a gift on "The Splendid Table's How to Eat Supper," by Lynne Rossetto Kasper and Sally Swift. This cookbook is AMAZING, and thought it's not strictly vegetarian, it does have a respectable vegetarian main dish section, as well as pasta, sides, salads, soups and desserts that I can't wait to make.
~Shared a lunch of Pasta e Fagioli soup and vegetarian sushi at Wild Oats with Lissie.
~Met Molly and May at the zoo for an exciting (and extremely hot) visit to our friends the animals. Ate a frozen lemonade that was so sugary it sapped my energy for the rest of the day and I could still taste in the back of my throat hours later. Not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing.
~Went home, ate vegetarian lasagna, green beans and applesauce, and spent several hours sorting through stuff and watching "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days," which I experimentally "rented" from iTunes.
I'm trying to go through all my junk and get rid of a lot of it. So far I've given away five large bags of clothes to Good Will, and I should have another two to go before I finish my dresser. Seriously, there's stuff I haven't worn since 8th grade that still hangs in my closet. The goal of all of this is to become more streamlined, less burdened by possessions. I'm also trying to not buy too much stuff this summer, except things I really, really want or need and have thought about for a long time. For example, I've been dreaming about that "Splendid Table" cookbook for two or three months now... and I spent gift card money on it.
