I thought I would share my current favorite afternoon treat, in case you, too, are in need of a little cheer- afternoon or otherwise. It's a pretty simple concoction, really: a cup of my favorite genmaicha tea mixed with a teeny bit of milk and the Coffee Bean's famous vanilla powder. It's the perfect 4 o'clock pick-me-up. Hey, does anyone remember the pikme-up on 6th? It was a hole in the wall coffee shop. just a few blocks down the street from a couple of my apartments backintheday; we used to walk there. Talk about a funky little joint! And just now, as I was googling, trying to find an old picture or something for show & tell, I discovered there is a documentary about it! Might need to check it out, since I'm now waxing nostalgic about the pre-Starbucks days of the funky coffee shop hangouts we would frequent that are no longer with us, like the pikme-up and the Onyx on Vermont. Good times.
And speaking of good times, I was able to work on one of my yet-to-be-named Crusoe socks last night while B and I watched on TV as the Padres swept the Dodgers! (You didn't think we'd switch alliances just because we moved, did you? I mean, really.) Just as the Padres were getting out the brooms, I turned the heel of the first sock. Yay! Too late for pictures last night, so stay tuned. :)
Another fun thing I stumbled upon recently is Zafu, and you may want to check it out if you ever have a problem finding jeans that fit. What's that you say? What woman has ever had that problem?? Um, yeah. It asks you a few questions about your body type, the style and cut of jeans you like best, and how jeans normally fit you, and then provides you recommendations for brands and styles that would fit you best according to your answers. I don't know, but I do know that shopping for jeans is such a pain in the ass (no pun intended), I'm willing to give this a whirl!
And because pictures of cute babies are never a downer, I leave you with a picture of Miss Kyra, chillin' in her bouncy seat. Happy Thursday!
