Hi friends! “Staycation” has commenced! Wahooo!
My ‘theme’ for this week off is Wellness Retreat. (I’m sure this is news to MSP.) I’ve always wanted to go to a spa retreat like Canyon Ranch, where they feed you full of über-healthy food and you do active things each day. This week will be my ‘budget friendly’ version of that. So this morning I started out my day with a Vega Whole Food Health Optimizer and a piece of Ezekial toast with almond butter (gee, sounds like a big departure from how I normally eat, huh?)
Since it’s going to be hot as Hades around town today, we’ve decided to begin our staycation fun by heading up to the mountains (where it will be a perfect 80 degrees) for the afternoon. While we are there, we have reservations to rent one of these:
I’m so excited! I’ve never been on a tandem bike before. We thought this would be a ton of fun. I admit I’m a little nervous too – I’ve fallen over on my own mountain bike while literally standing still. (I’m klutzy like that. Most of my more painful injuries have occurred while simply taking a breather during activities: snowboarding and rollerblading are especially hazardous for me when NOT moving.) So this tandem thing could mean falling twice as hard, right? I am sure there will be plenty of comedy involved, no matter what happens.
I’ll be sure to report back on the day’s happenings and let you know how it goes. I’ll toss in a few gorgeous mountain pics too!
In other news, my KOMBUCHA STARTER CULTURES arrived last night! YAY! I just started my first batch today, so I’ll be letting you know how it goes (or should I say, how it GROWS!) I can’t wait for 2-3 weeks from now when I can take my first sip! I miss my “booch”.
Have a TERRIFIC Tuesday!

P.S. Thank you SO MUCH for the feedback on how the site is loading for you. Sounds like it has more to do with my connection as opposed to a slow host server, so that’s good news! Thanks ladies!
