simple joys

this friday was a delicious treat. i had the morning off and had planned on going to class this afternoon but due to a scheduling mix up at school i ended up getting the entire day off! this was a welcome surprise as it's the first friday i've had off in months & months and it's the first day i've had off in over 3 weeks.

today i enjoyed:

*sleeping in
*watching the beautiful snow that fell all day (i know a lot of people are upset about more snow but not moi, i love it!)
*a huge nap
*watching a little food network (food network & the travel channels are my favs)
*looking through my newest cookbook "eat taste heal: an ayurvedic guidebook and cookbook for modern living"
*enjoying h2o with a slice of organic lemon
*writing with my new sakura souffle 3-d opaque puffy ink pens (thanks for the recommendation stephanie)
*snuggling with my kitties and pup
*relaxing around the house not worrying about the to-dos (they will be there tomorrow)
*noshing on some tagalongs (girl scout cookie time!)
*observing the ongoing kitteh antics....

Sounds like an amazing day!

That cookbook sounds really neat! I remember reading some info about ayurvedic diets awhile back. Do you follow a diet for your certain type?

Hope school is still going well! You always sound so busy! :)

Sounds like a blissful day off! I've seen that cookbook at Borders and wondered whether it was worth buying. What do you think of it?

carrie - i don't actually follow a specific diet for my dosha but i am learning more about it and trying to incorporate it more. :)

analiese - i definitely think it's worth buying. there are a lot of great recipes that are very detailed to each dosha. and it tells you how to modify a recipe depending on your dosha. it's great!

Sounds like you had an amazing & restful day! I wish we had gotten more snow out of those storms, but all we got was cold rain. Oh well. :) Love the quilt the kitties are sleeping on!
