Happy Feet

18 Aug

Happy Saturday! It’s a serious glorious day, weather-wise in Washington and it felt so nice to just walk around and enjoy the sunshine and accompanying breeze. I woke up this morning and has a pretty unexciting breakfast of Honey Nut Cheerios and an apple before heading out to the gym for my Muscle Up class. I added a kilo of weight (for some reason they’re measure in kilos instead of pounds?) to each side of my bar so the biceps and triceps were a little rough today, but the chest press was fine.

Only the walk home from the bus stop, I passed by people handing out free peach popsicles and I had to grab one! It was part of a campaign for a climate change organization, called the Climate Reality Project, so it came with an ‘I’m Too Hot’ sticker.

The popsicle was from Pleasant Pops and was seriously delicious! I had absolutely no problem eating it before it started getting melty. Check out their story on their website, it’s fabulous – they use all local ingredients from nearby farmers. After I finished, I was greeted with this message on the stick:

Yikes. I know that it has been a rough summer for many parts of the country, but drought in over 50% of the country? That’s some serious stuff.

After working out, I went home and took a quick shower before heading out with my friend Cassandra for a girls’ day out! First stop was the spa to get pedicures, which, in my case, was desperately needed. I can’t even remember the last time I had a pedicure and my feet were looking a little rough. The place we went to was so nice! They offered us magazines and a selection of beverages while we were getting our feet scrubbed. I chose an OPI polish called ‘Houston, We Have a Purple’ which I am really happy about, and so are my feet.

I was so, so hungry by the time we were done and so we immediately went in search of a restaurant. We ended up near Dupont Circle at a Thai/sushi restaurant, where I ordered the phad see ew with tofu and Cassandra ordered the miso soup, edamame, and a gorgeous plate of sushi. The phad see ew was really good, I love me some wide rice noodles!

After Cassandra’s plate had arrived, however, I kind of wished I had ordered sushi…

After a fabulous day of spa-ing, sushi, and singing in her car, she dropped me off at my house after lunch and I packed some clothes before heading over to Stef’s. I brought a nicer outfit because we are going out to dinner this evening and I wasn’t quite ready to change into heels – my shorts and flip flops are so comfy! Definitely not appropriate for dinner, hence the change of clothes.

What’s in store for your Saturday night?

    I’m canning up a batch of Drunken Fig Jam! Karin helped me pick 7 pounds of extremely ripe dark figs from our tree, and they are presently simmering on the stove with cognac, sugar, and lemon peel. I keep sampling, and they are stunningly good.

    Have fun on a date with your darling beau! (Mine is on Maui…)
