I had a bit of a slow day, feeling a bit tired from the impromptu festivities last night, but thankfully I was armed with a trifecta of caffeine and hydration goodness
|Zico coconut water, latte flavoured. Saved me.|
I am le obsessed.
It is SO handy to have pre-made quinoa and salad fixings ready for me in the fridge so I can just throw it all together (before my morning coffee. I know, wild). Served with a healthy dose of dark chocolate :)
I think my running plans for today have been squashed by the weather. The weather network is calling for crazy rain alllll day, and all I want to do is get in my pjs and curl up on the couchwith my book (currently reading ‘Clara Callan’). But there will be no lazing about for me tonight – my Dad, stepmom and (not so) little bro are coming down from London-town tonight, and the other bro and sis are coming down with my stepmom’s mom and husband (confusing enough?? Hehe it’s a messy family tree) so I will def have to tidy up a bit when I get home. That counts as a workout, riiight? Right.

Although I went outside on my lunch break to run some errands, and realized it was market day near my work! I always forget, even though it happens every week at the same time…
And I picked up a lush basil plant - my plants in the garden aren't doing well this year for some reason, but I LURVE basil (and have a great basil hummus recipe that I'll post tomorrow) and this one was just screaming PICK ME PICK ME. So, naturally, I did.
Oh, and I had a WONDERFUL surprise call from one of my oldest and dearest friends Anneke, who has been in Beijing for about a year (more?). What with me not having internet or any type of functional communication technology, it is hard to get a convo in, but I’m always so happy to hear from her and her shenanigans ;)
Question of the Afternoon:
- Have you talked to a close friend that you haven’t seen in a while? Does it feel like only yesterday that you saw each other??
