Usually when I have a break between terms I spend a lot of it in the kitchen. I haven’t had a chance to do that much, but I’m hoping I can in the coming week since my courses start again on the 5th.
So I’ve been inspired to get back into juicing. Finally picked up How Not to Die, and it makes me really miss it (both not dying AND juicing!). Of course I have a slow juicer (Tribest Slowstar), but it’s always leaked a bit, which is why I stopped using it. So after doing some research, found it’s a known problem. I contacted Tribest (even tho I bought this juicer in 2014, it has a 10 yr warranty), and they’re sending me the replacement part for free!
Until then, it’s occasionally buying juices until I can make my own.
Other eats include Thai, of course. And salads, soups, meals out with my guy, and a lovely solo dinner in downtown Norfolk. Plus dinner in the DC area last night.
Couldn’t fit in any Regymen classes, but did get in yoga and spinning. This weekend has been quite a bit of walking too.
Even though there’s been no school, it’s been a busy week.
Last Saturday was a fund raiser for my daughter’s orchestra group at the Norfolk Admirals hockey game. When I was in Boston she asked if we could go. Of course! Transferred her $$ to her card so she could pick them up. I get home, and she tells me (very excitedly), that her best friend can come! Thing is – she bought 2 tickets. SO….I scooped the girls up, took them to the arena, and then walked around, ending up with dinner solo at Leone’s. No worries tho. Pasta, wine, and a book, and I was very happy.
Sunday morning I went over to my boyfriend’s house for a bit. Then we went out to lunch, and then I met his family for dinner. No pressure. Actually it was really low key and everyone is really sweet.
Being on a school break means more reading for me. Aside from my fun fiction books on kindle, am working on these 3 too. Just because it’s break time, doesn’t mean I don’t feed my brain.
The rest of the week was work and kid stuff, though went out Thursday night with my guy.
Friday I dropped R off at school – she has a robotics competition out of town that her brother and friends are going to cheer on – because I’m in DC for a long weekend. Had a stop in Charlottesville for a meeting, then up to DC, where I have some events until Monday afternoon.
