I was so tired when I got up this morning…. I woke up at 3:30 am and just could not shut my brain down. I was just dragging about 8 am so toodled off to Target to get some of my favorite dried fruit I love. Bought a new exercise ball, resistance bands and hand weights! Then off to the farmers market with my friend Mary.
Mary cracks me up beyond belief, she is moving in June and I am so sad to see her leave but will be happy for her, she needs to be in a less stressful place and she is headed to the beach baby!!! We were at the farmers market, this lady who makes jewelry was very friendly to us until Mary said, oh look you can wear a classy pin AND smoke a joint at the same time. She was looking at this pin, it had 3 head like things on it that in Mary’s defense looked like roach clips. I swear the entire earth went silent, you could hear crickets!!! It was not roach clips, I started laughing so loud, the lady is staring at us with this glare that was telling us to put the product down, move along and NEVER EVER return. I died laughing, her reaction, Mary’s mistake and the absolute silence was awesome! Oh how I needed that laugh, it was a BELLY laugh!!! We continued on our way and came across these flowers, oh how I wish I could afford to buy some!
Headed home after the market and did a bit of housework. My friend asked me if I wanted to go to dinner with her and her boyfriend so we headed to this amazing little restaurant Agave Azul, for those of you in the Gresham/Portland area, it is worth the trip. Fresh made, mostly authentic, amazing flavors. I had the Sopes, little maza cakes with chicken and steak, pico de gallo, lettuce, mexican cheese and the most amazing salsa. YUMMM
Rod went for the “Big Margarita” that is what they call it! He finished one and as you can see from the second photo by the time they brought the second one he was smiley! He is a Central Oregon transplant who coaches swimming, he is one of the sweetest men I know and is so wonderful to the kids.
Pam is my coworker and a great friend, she makes me laugh, she pokes me when I am putting myself down, she is one of my biggest supporters in this journey I am on. I adore her and she cracks me up daily. I know people listen to our conversations and must think WTF those two are seriously nuts!!! She is one of the few people in the world who I can be “me” around.
After dinner I took a little walk, it is a stormy beautiful night. I am exhausted but my mind is not as muddled. Headed to bed, I think for the first time in a long time I am going to sleep a little better. I needed to refresh and unload and not talk or even think work, life, my journey I am taking. Nothing but good people, good food, several walks and now a wonderful stormy night!!!! Hugs my friends.
