Well, I finally caved and gave my money to the ‘bizzle. I still had some money left on my Starbucks card (thanks, Dad!) so my Iced Venti Skim Latte (my friend Lisa, a former barista there, taught me the correct ordering order once… hope I got that one right) was only 7 cents. Sweet deal!
After an hour and a half or so of solid work (which is a triumph for me, I am easily distracted), I went home to make a quick lunch: sweet potato stuffed with cinnamon, cottage cheese and black beans.
I also had an apple that was pretty funky… it had a lot of brown spots and that weird “earthy” taste.
I’m trying to use up all my perishables before I go to the grocery store (for what might be my last big shop before I MOVE)… I’m pretty much out of fruit and veggies, so that’ll probably happen sooner rather than later.
I’m probably going to have a quick dinner in the cafeteria tonight so I can get my daily greens in before going to hear Sandra Cisneros read. She’s on a book tour to celebrate the 25th anniversary of The House On Mango Street, which I was first introduced to in fourth grade by my teacher. I’m so excited to meet her!
Hope you’re having a fantastic Tuesday.
