Hi guys! Thanks so much for the positive feedback regarding my new little writing gig. I will continue to post a link to the daily articles that I write and I do hope you all will check it out and support me because, well, I get paid based on pageviews so if no one reads what I write, I don’t make any money!
This morning was interesting because I had just started a Dave Farmar power yoga podcast (love him!) and I was about 15 minutes into it when I started to smell something…..odd. Like I had left a candle lit or something but I knew I hadn’t. Something in me told me to stop my vinyasas and poke around the condo. Low and behold, the top to some tupperware had fallen in the dishwasher and was burning up!
I don’t even HAVE to tell you how awful burning plastic smells. Sorry, Ryan! 🙂
So that was interesting and I never did get back on my mat since I was feeling so distracted! Oh well. Instead, I met my mom for lunch at a little greek place in town called Louis Pappas. Pappas is incredibly famous in the Tampa area for their greek salad and rightly so! We both ordered the “baby greek” (the smallest they have) with salmon on it and look at how HUGE it was!
It was delicious though! Layers upon layers of creamy greek potato salad, salty feta, fresh lettuce, beets, kalamata olives and finished off with a single shrimp + salmon for me! I requested the dressing on the side and didn’t really need to use much at all since there was so much going on in the salad already.
Yep, I was in salad heaven! I also had a slice of french bread with pesto—
And had water to drink. When I was finished, it looked like I hadn’t even put a dent in the salad but I probably ate about 80% of it!
I had this for dessert!
After lunch we headed over to my brother’s school to donate all his school supplies and books and to pick up his unfinished art work. I still can’t believe that a) he is gone and b) he was an AMAZING artist! He seriously could have probably gone to art school for ceramics and was in AP ceramics this year. I just never knew…I wish I would have……
When I got home it was juice time!
Today’s mix was carrots, kale, ginger, celery, beet and pineapple. YumO! The pineapple made it super sweet 🙂
I’m off to write, clean and then head to my parent’s house to watch Oprah with my mom. Today is the big farewell to Dr. Oz! Love him!
Back to make dinner later….I’m slowly getting used to our 8:00 dinner time but its worth it because then I at least have someone to eat with!
