Happy Valentine’s Day! I’ve been working on some new mugs in pottery class, very V-Day appropriate. I’m so excited that I FINALLY got my hanko (a stamp of my name in Japanese) back because now I’m using it as my name ‘stamp’ on my new ceramic pieces.
Popping in for a little THIS WEEK update.
“Lampshades on Fire”
Beck’s “Morning” for my mornings! (Also digging “Blue Moon” and “Heart is a Drum”)
After reading Gillian’s post, I thought, I gotta get it together like her. I cleaned out my fridge and made a big batch of The New York Time’s Oven-Roasted Chicken Shawarma and have been eating it with salads or I made a flatbread with caramelized onions and tomatoes. It’s delicious and so easy. I’ll definitely make it again!
Breakfasts were usually eggs, English muffin, and grapefruit.
Tried snacking on peppers instead of potato chips this week…
Also, I’ve been starting my day with a big glass of water with chlorophyll and two fermented cod liver oil capsules. I KNOW. I dig weird healthy morning routines though, I do I do.
And vitamins, rocking the pill box just like my parents. I’m not sure if vitamins do much, but psychologically, I feel like I’m being healthy. I take a multi, D, calcium, C, probiotic, and something for joints.
Oh oh oh my HERBS came in! I’ve got a tincture, a tea, and a decoction to make. I’ve never done a decoction and going to tackle it on Monday. (Pictured next to my incense, I feel so hippie.)
Swimming (this class is so hard!), yoga, roller skating, and hiking. I went for a run on Monday on the indoor track, just for 30 minutes. It felt sooooooo good even though I know it’s bad for me. Interestingly, since I’m doing way more yoga than ever before in my life, I could feel one hip was tight from the indoor track. I’m kind of wary of those tight corners, even for walking, which I do a lot of nights there in this bitter cold.
Have a great weekend! I’m going skiing soon, kind of not looking forward to the super cold temps, but hey it’s Vermont so whatcanyoudo?!
