Saturday morning, I was up nice and early for my amended Saturday routine. Kate had emailed on Friday suggesting that we check out this event in place of our usual hot yoga class. Free stuff? I am there!
While Wife and Ted slept on, I got myself psyched for early morning exercise with part two of my Amazing Grass adventure:
Unlike the packet I tried Friday that had other grasses and fruits, this packet was 100% wheat grass powder.
It was greener and grassier and not really sweet at all, but I was a fan again! I think something about eating cool whip straight from the tub Friday may have re-wired my taste buds to crave grass.
Wife woke up, so we just had time for a little chat before I had to go meet Kate. The Women’s Health event was held at Pier 46, a gorgeous spot in the West Village right on the Hudson. Any time I’m near water, I can’t help taking scenery pics!
Our plan was to attend the 10:30 Lyrical Vinyasa class (part of the event was free Crunch classes all day long — too bad we didn’t have more time!), but it was full already, so we contented ourselves with some free sampling from Edy’s new Yogurt Blends line.
Nothing like froyo-for-breakfast (the theme of my week, apparently).
I had one of each of course. It was delicious and creamy and perfect 😀
Free photoboothing with gourmet sunglasses:
And free trampoline-bungee jumping!
I actually managed to flip over backwards! And more than once!
I did it until the froyo in my belly got angry, at which point I kindly asked to be released.
After the event, Kate and I speed-walked through the sun-dappled West Village streets (yet another place I can only dream of living):
And a street fair where I had a little sample of Amy’s bread:
And the subway system until we made it to CSA pickup just in the nick of time:
This week, we each got tons of mesclun, 1/2 head of green lettuce, 1/2 bunch frisee, 1/2 bunch kale, 2 cucumbers (one green, one white), 1/2 kohl rabi, 1/2 lb zucchini, 1/2 lb yellow/pattypan squash, 1/2 lb cherries, 1/2 pint blueberries, and 3 eggs.
I’d never heard of or seen a kohl rabi before, but apparently it is also known as a German turnip and is a member of the cabbage family.
After the CSA pickup, I was finally able to make it to the library during open hours so I could return a wayyyyyy overdue book and renew my library card. Phew! It felt so good to get all of that taken care of. I made myself a big yummy salad for lunch and then set to work getting ready for the evening!
What is your experience with bungee cords (i.e. bungee-jumping, using them to tie stuff to the roof of your car, etc.)? I went bungee-jumping for real at my brother’s 2002 wedding in Costa Rica. It was fun, but it was definitely one of those things that I was happy to cross off my list so I never had to do it again …
