Endangered Animal Photography - Joel Sartore's...
A truly website (of a book) by Joel Sartore on endangered animals. A picture is worth a thousand words, but in this case, you need to know that these animals are threatened by the current conditions in the world. There are breeding programs that have been implemented and successful as well. Favorite images include: Leatherback Turtle Red Wolf Northern Spotted Owl TernI’m not crazy about the...
First a Complaint (Sorry) then Thought on...
Finally made my way to the Flying Cupcake today and wasn’t disappointed! I’d give the cupcakes a 4 / 5. The buttercream was predictably over sugared (and the American version of buttercream - scoff), but the cake was perfect in texture (again, too much sugar). I know that cupcakes are the rage at the moment, but to find that they are the type that will skyrocket my blood sugar levels,...
Passing Through Wednesday
Today wasn’t the greatest day. I did a few things for myself: I put on a clay mask for twice as long as I should have (actually, I lost track of time - which is sometimes nice). I ate an orange popsicle. I played piano. I did a lot of push ups. :(Lesson today: coaching people is difficult.
Yoga Last Night
My belly pooched all over the place last night (imagine a little girl trying to pull her pants up and her top down…me), but I was quite pleased with my Duri’s Stardust nails! They’re awfully cute. And the OPI Mad as a Hatter on the toes. Black mood, but I guess I just have to learn how to grin and bear it. Easter was this Sunday, but I’m going to hit the gym hard on Sunday...
Black Mood on a Cloudy Day
This cloudy day is affecting my black mood. Or maybe my mood brought upon me the cloudy day. I wonder what I want to do tonight. Maybe use a clay mask a little while I take a nice long bath? Broken hearts are such a burden. 4 months to go.
Electronic Pen Pals
I spent a year abroad in Singapore, and now I have all this mini-pen pals from there (and other places, I suppose). Facebook has allowed me to stay connect with so many people more than e-mail has because the messages are more informal. Maybe another way to relieve stress - send a little note to someone every day. Perhaps these ways are not really about stress relief as much as enjoying life! ...
I got into my car last night and found bird poo everywhere. Contrary to your first inclination, I WAS NOT PARKED UNDER A TREE. Birds, I am well aware that spring is here. Stop pooing on my car.
This past weekend, I bought a wheel of Aloutte Brie + NY Style Bagel Chips. Mercy! My body is telling me that I need more fat. I heart Brie! I usually prefer the triples, but Costco was selling them for less than $4. I ate a sixth last night. *blushes*
Stress Relief...slowly but surely
So I recently read something that told me to relieve stress in a little way every day. Yesterday was a great day! I relieved stress in 4 ways. How’s that for overachieving? ate tiramisu at Bravo! danced around in the bathroom while brushing my teeth to ridiculous(ly awesome) Korean pop got one of those Chinese foot massage places - Foot Vitalite went to yoga class at LA FitnessToday,...
