Because of my plantar fasciitis, I can’t stand for more than a few minutes without searing pain so I haven’t really gone out much these last 2 weeks. Yesterday I ended up missing going out on a tour of local farms with my friend and her adorable son. This lead me to binge buy a bunch of stuff on Amazon to help with the pain and recovery.
This morning I was determined to get out at least a little bit and enjoy the sun. So, I decided to make my way to the local organic farmers market. It was just so beautiful out and I love those markets because everyone is so friendly and the veggies are amazing. I think I ended up with 7 different kinds of greens, so I will be making a ton of salads. Right now I’m enjoying a delicious baby kale, baby mustard greens, butter lettuce, and shaved apple salad with a little fancy olive oil, lemon, salt, and pepper. It is fantastic! While I was at the market I decided to make my way to the juice bar since I was too lazy to make my own juice this morning. The guy that made my juice was the same guy that used to take my orders at a local deli where I would buy lunch while I worked at an investment banking firm. That’s so weird that he remembered me from 15 years ago despite that I look drastically different now. The second he said he remembered me I knew who he was, which is really weird for me since I have horrible facial recognition. He now owns his own juice bar and we discussed possibly working together. I love running into people from my past. It definitely has me a little nostalgic.
I made this tea absolutely perfectly today. I practically never measure out my tea (except when doing an official tasting), so when I make a tea absolutely perfectly and its one of my favorite teas there is just a moment of ahhhhhh. I had that moment of ‘ah’ and this tea is just absolutely perfect for my mood right now. So caramel-y and chocolaty with some light maltiness. Its just absolutely perfect and I am feeling really great right now.
