Current Thoughts

Yesterday was definitely an experience that I would not easily forget. Through an invitation of a friend, I was clad in a grey tank, and jeans while beads of sweat were slithering down my back and leaning between two wooden planks trying to secure a wire clip that will hold a metal fence up at 9am in the morning on a horse farm. Never in my life had I thought I would ever don on worker's gloves, carry metal poles around, tear down fences, and not to mention put up new fences. I think I can understand a little bit better when people say that they feel more secure and grounded when building their own house or working on their own land. There is a sense of fulfillment and calm that comes with the manual labor--not to mention staring at the fruits of said labor.

I managed to stay awake till 10:30pm last night and then promptly passed out when I allowed myself to sleep. Now I am sitting here in front of the computer trying to remember that faint smell of green grass, trees, and the undeniable scent of horses.

Was it all a dream? Did that really happen? Yes--my whole body soreness tells me so.

Oh so shiny...

After two grueling weeks of work, pesky work relationships, and co-workers pulling me in every possible direction I was ready for a long long break or the opportunity to throw things at them. But luckily for them the weekend was upon us and I didn't have to talk to them for three glorious days.


During the past three days, I made gourmet food, I went to the cove and sat there people watching, I drank a Suizerra, and most of all I shopped and painted my nails. THREE DAYS OF BLISS, I tell ya. (Well, there were the usual disturbances...but nothing I can't at least I'm trying...)

Anyways, I'm gonna go stare at my shiny toes and contemplate what I will be doing with my newly found time and what summer activities I will be participating. Oh so many things to little time.

oh so shiny............

Summer Indulgence

Memorial day is the official announcement that summer is here. To celebrate summer, I made a berry lemonade from fresh berries and lemons. :D

Getting Intouch with The Chef Inside

Potato skins with basil, oregano, pepper and cheese.

Penne Pasta, with apple sausage + mushroom with a dash of mint

It was a night of comfort food. YUM.
I totally should cook more often


This site's main theme more so stems from "Grace Kelly" by Mika. There is absolutely no association with Grace Kelly the actress. I only wish I could have 1/2 the grace she possesses on screen. *sighs*
