I decided to take a yoga class this morning. I haven’t been to one in months so I chose Level One, which didn’t start til 9:30am; an hour before I had this:
Half a cantaloupe, eaten straight-up with a spoon. Followed by 2 green pills and my multi. For some reason I didn’t need my usual ginger chew. Maybe because I had someplace to go?
You have to remove your shoes at the yoga studio, so I wore my special Havianas from South Africa, to prevent them from getting lost in a sea of black flip flops.
Aren’t they cute? Wonderful memories of my safari trip there.
Class was uber slow and unchallenging, even for me – and I am pretty lazy and out of yoga shape. But it was an hour and a half of pure relaxation. When I got home I had Brekkie Brew Part Deux:
- 1/2 cup kamut flakes, cooked in 3/4 cups water
- 1 TB crushed raw walnuts
- 2TB egg whites
- A few dashes of turmeric, a generous pinch of salt and pepper
And the magic ingredient…
1 TB of Trader Joe’s Pineapple Salsa.
This was surprisingly delicious, for being so simple…
Honey Vanilla Chamomile tea and a ginger peanut chew.

I recently got an email, out of the blue, from my college piano teacher! It was so nice to hear from her (it’s been more than a decade since I’ve spoken to her). I felt inspired to play.
Usually my piano is a very expensive picture holder, but every once in a while I get a nice practice session in.
Here’s what I’m learning right now -
Debussy’s Clair de Lune – super duper famous piece. I always wanted to play it. Now I (sorta) can!
About 50 piano minutes later, I wasn’t too hungry but it was time to eat. My two breakfasts held me over until 4pm! But that’s kinda how I planned it, since I don’t think I’ll be having dinner til 9-ish, maybe later.
On Ezekiel Sesame Bread – Applegate Farms Natural Turkey Salami, 1/4 of an avocado, and Dijonnaise
With a few organic strawberries, 2 green pills, fish oil, and an orange Tootsie pop -
The reason I’m anticipating a late dinner is because I’m going to the premiere screening for my husband Abe’s documentary tonight – it’s part of a web series called “In Their Boots,” stories of issues that recent veterans and their families face. Abe recently did an op-ed video for the NY Times, if you’re interested in seeing a preview of what tonight’s screening is about.
I couldn’t be prouder! I’m skipping my acting class this week so I can attend.
Now I’m off to walk Julius, tidy up (we have a houseguest tonight), get ready for the premiere, and sit in LA Traffic! I probably won’t get a chance to post til tomorrow since it’ll be late and we’ll have company….
