Today was a very pleasant day.
A pleasant day, indeed, for all parties involved.
Anyways. The boyfriend’s good friend from home is visiting so we made the typical rounds: Willow Wood Market for brunch, wine tasting(s), the redwood forest and the coast. Wahoo!
To regress a bit, let me just say that I had a lovely run this morning. Four miles on a new “interesting” trail near my house. The verdicts still out on that one. But getting back to the run…and what I ate after…a lovely recovery protein shakeroo
1 cup almond milk, 1/2 cup frozen berries and 1 scoop chocolate protein powder.
I was running late to brunch so I directed the boy to order me something along the lines of an egg white omelet. Alas, when I arrived this was what I found.
Not egg whites but still pure deliciousness. Soft set scrambled eggies with some type of yummy cheese. Didn’t eat the bread but did eat all my fruit and all his fruit. Cause that’s how I roll.
And now I must tell you the crazy story from today. This is so totally crazy you’ll never believe it. So, we’re at Iron Horse sipping on some bubbly bubbly this afternoon….
And then I feel a slight tap on my shoulder. I turned around and there was my friend, Matt! I haven’t seen Matt since Junior year of college back there in good ol’ South Carolina. Talk about blast from the past—five years and 3,000 miles later and we meet again! I wish someone could have photographed the look on my face….pure shock. Love that. Unfortunately there was no photo. Use your imagination.
Then we saw some big trees and I hugged them.
And sat inside them.
I desperately wanted to crush some acorns into flour and make pancakes, Jean Craighead George style, but there were none so instead I just sat and squatted my land.
We drove by the coast, saw some goats and then picked up barbecue for dinner. I had a small bit with a big salad and some of my baked beans.
I’m so tired and my jaw aches? I don’t know. Hope y’all had a pleasant day as well—see ya tomorrow!
