Yesterday was my big whopping one day off this week. I spent it out in Ann Arbor listening to the Dalai Lama speak. It was amazing and moving. He spoke of a lot of Buddhist concepts and he also took some questions. He spoke about half the time through his interpreter, and about half the time in English. He has an amazing presence.
Afterwards I went to the Whole Foods market in AA. I went there hungry, big mistake! There is so much there that's yummy. When I got home I took a two hour nap with the Dalmatian and then Mr. Larj and I went out to dinner at a place called India Spice in Farmington Hills. It was so incredibly good. They have a tomato soup there that is out of this world. Mr. Larj and I both agreed it was like having a party in your mouth.
This last Tuesday at Knit night I received a surprise prezzie of a "Whatsit" from the talented Sara! She made one for everyone in our little group and customized them to each recipient. Mine is green (of course) and has pierced ears with little silver hoop earrings. SO cute.
I also gave myself a prezzie of this lovely t-shirt that I first saw on Kat's blog. It fit's me perfectly both literally and figuratively. If you can't read it..it says "will knit for tattoos". I HAD to have it!
I ran around after work today and frankly I am bushed. I had a pretty hectic day at work and then I decided that I had a "fevah" for some really good guacamole and chips. I went to the Honey Bee market in Mexicantown. Which if you've never been is a real treat. The chips are light and crisp and the guacamole...outstanding. It was a real challenge getting there since I-75 is closed at Clark St. I ended up taking Woodward all the way from 696 to Jefferson, Jefferson to Fort, Fort to Livernois and Vernor to Bagley. Let's just simplify and say it took me an hour and a half to get home today. I am tired, too tired to knit right now, think I am going to have a glass of wine, watch some trash TV and hit the hay for another day of adventures in health care.
Everyone have a great and mindful week !
