long weekend

a long weekend
 is 
always
 lovely


 the weather 
wasn't awful
 no polar vortex
 some rain
 some snow 
some wind
 some cold
 some sun

it is 
after all
 winter
...

 left the office friday
 around 3
always nice
 it also 
always 
confuses me 
it makes me feel
 as if
 saturday is sunday

 absurd
 but
 thats how my brain works
...

  we watched despicable me 2
 i was
 tired
 falling asleep 
so 
we finished watching
 it
 on saturday
 after
 my massage
 after
 the errands

 the animation
 is exquisite
 the story
 was slow to start
 but fun
 i dont think 
you need to see
 despicable me 1
 in order to enjoy it

 we love animation 
if you love animation
you'll enjoy it 
...

sunday
 i did beautification
 another week 
of red nails 
essie's bordeaux


 i also got 
the 'frame'
 (my hair stylist's term) 
of my hair
 keratin'd
 that means
 its
 extremely straight
 for a few days
 the rest of my hair
 is 
full 
bouncy
 and
it looks weird
 the bouncy
 will
 calm down
 drop dead
 (my term) 
and 
the straight
 will blend in more

 in a few weeks
 i will get it
 cut
 shaped
 layered
 reshaggyed
 (also my term)

...

 i am starting a juice cleanse
 i have
 not
 stopped 
over eating
 since 
thanksgiving 

i have
 tried
 unsuccessfully
 to curb
 my impulses
 stifle my appetite

 a friend did a juice cleanse
 she lost 5 lbs 
it inspired me
  thats how much i want to lose 

 juices
 3 'meals'
 2 'snacks' 
are 
fruits and/or veggies 
with
 other good healthy things 
blended in
you drink lots of water
 tea
 if you need a little extra
 you have some broth  

i will let you know how it works out
...

harry was scheduled for dental work
he's fine
 his teeth need some work
 as does
 his breath
which will improve
 when his teeth are cared for
anyway
his appointment
 got rescheduled
 due to our vet
 (he called me to explain he announced himself ''its your vet' )
being short-staffed
i suggested
 those not able to come to work
 were
suffering long weekend-itis
i love our vet
i love
 that he called to explain
 and
to advise
that harry's pre surgical blood work
was
perfect
...

football 
was on toonman's agenda

if it was on your agenda
i hope your team won

  2. I've decided I must get back to healthy eating again, starting today, after the excesses of Christmas and New Year celebrations. I'm determined! ;)

  3. Let me know how that cleanse works. I too have been trouble re-gearing my body, but I'm slowly getting back in the groove.

  4. I try to watch team sports but always end up wandering off into another room. I think the sportscasters are what bother me.. blah blah blah. Let's just watch the game, okay?

    Love the window shot!!

  5. Chloe wants to "ombre" her hair and so we went to see Casey, our beautiful red head hair dresser (http://raw.dec29.com/our-team) to have a consultation. I put my coat on with all two feet of hair tucked in- didn't even think about it- and you should have seen Casey's face when she asked me (timidly) if I had my hair cut. LOL I said, "Casey, if I cut my hair you'd be the first to know about it."

    I know the feeling of the extra holiday poundage. I've upped the yoga and hikes to get rid of the (feels like a hundred) pounds and cut out some and down on other foods. And I'm desperately trying to ignore the Sbux chai tea lattes that I love so much and have been denied while in E. Ugh, it's not easy in my well advanced years. So easy to put on and so tough to drop. And here C is running around at 110 lbs soaking wet eating anything she likes! Oh to be in my 20s again, just for a month. :)

  7. I have a friend who did some kind of cleanse. She had to drink water with lemon, cayenne pepper, and maple syrup (I think). I don't know, I sure hope yours is yummier than that!! :-)

    Yup, it was a football weekend around here. Not for me though. I just enjoyed the time, reading.

    So glad that Harry's blood work is good! xo.

  8. Ugh, I'm having such a tough time sticking to a very healthy eating regimen... trying to keep it as paleo as possible, but I have little willpower. I have 15 lbs. I'd like to lose.

  9. Daryl, I love these shots! Especially the first one!
    Good luck with you dietary adventures! God I hate diets! But I'm due too!!
