Not so much. After a torrential down pour last night, we had six inches of water in our basement…..darn sewage system . Well after a day spent cleaning in horrible filth, we had a relaxing night watching the movie The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus. It was Heath Ledger’s last performance before his death and he was really good in it. Although the movie was a bit strange (freaky?), it was a really cool concept and definitely worth seeing.
My weekend was really fun and I can’t wait till everyday is the weekend because starting next Monday I am on VACATION!
Here’s some tidbits from my weekend:
Sushi and the theatre was enjoyed on Friday night:
I saw a great play called the Exonerated, a true story about 7 individuals sentenced to death row on false criminal charges. So good! I live having so much theatre locally. Great start to the weekend.
I enjoyed the farmers market outside of our house on Saturday and got my favorite (local!) salsa…..its absolutely amzaing!…….and some crispy fresh apples.
Also received some coupons from LightLife food company to samples three of their products. Super excited! I always see their products at Wegmans but have never tried them. Heres what I bought for my first sampling:
Can’t wait to try for lunches and quick meals!
I made an awesome smoothie today, a little different from my typical icy treats. I ran out of banana’s so I had to get a little creative.
In the mix:
~a handful (or two) of frozen blueberries
~2/3 cup milk
~four large strawberries sliced
~ 1 cup loosely packed spinach
~ lots o’ ice ( I like it really cold)
Blended and topped with a bit of mesquite powder (my new love)! Delish. Love the color too!
I had this with a new found favorite snack mixture: humus mixed with salsa~ tastes like a gourmet creamy dip but soooo easy. Try some with some raw veg and crackers. Oh and with this I enjoyed a Raisin Spice Heart Thrive (tasted just like an oatmeal cookie) deeeelish!
Some of my artwork from art class was featured at a highschool art show yesterday and here’s some of the stuff that was shown:
