My sister came into town last night. She has off today, so we are headed up to Providence to visit Brown (she is a senior in high school). We’re taking the Peter Pan bus (just $29.95 RT from NYC to Providence). I miss Julia! She was my maid of honor. She is also a vegetarian (going on 10 years probably – she hasn’t eaten meat since she was about 7).
Last night when she arrived it was pouring rain. We decided to have a simple dinner at the Whole Foods hot/cold bar and we followed it up with The Lite Choice. Always a favorite. When we got home we enjoyed some digestive tea (from Coco!) sweetened with NuNaturals stevia (Julia loved it – she will probably be buying it herself).
We got girly and painted our nails. I got a new Essie color: silver. I almost always paint my nails a dark shimmery brown/red so I’m glad I psyched myself up for a change.
I ate grapes (Julia was full; I think my stomach is larger than the average person’s because I can always eat – this is annoying sometimes).
And we watched an episode of Taboo, a show on National Geographic about weird things in different cultures (on Netflix streaming).
And then Julia conked out. She’s been working like crazy – the (amazingly smart) girl is taking 5 AP classes, she works at an organic farm, she volunteers, she’s in clubs, and she has a very busy social life. Sometimes I wish I was back in high school again though, because she is so happy and innocent.
