Friday afternoon means slipping into a grey summer dress, a new issue of Travel + Leisure, warming cups of Oasis – citrus green tea from Tea Forté, and butter cookies by Yoku Moku. Rock sugar sticks in Amber and Saffron are seriously pretty, I could stare at them for hours before a spin in the tea cup. Just half an hour of relaxation makes all the difference in a day. Treat yourself well. A few weeks ago, I re-started yoga after two years of no workouts. As much as I’ve tried to avoid exercise, there’s no denying that it makes a pretty noticeable difference, more mentally than physically. Now the hard part: mustering the discipline to continue this on a regular schedule!
Earthquake on Tuesday, Hurricane Irene this weekend…what is the world coming to? I stopped by Whole Foods today and it was mayhem. People hoarding canned goods, water…the chip/cracker shelves were totally empty. Stocked up on cheese and baguettes and those addictive samosas from the by-the-pound station..and then someone rolled their cart over my foot not twice, but three times. Goodness.
