Sunday May 20th...


I would like to say I'm continuing the proud tradition of Creative Sundays (which came to a halt sometime before the holidays) but, it may be a sporadic venture indeed. My mother and I talked about the very subject recently and decided that it would be OK with both of us if we still did it...only sometimes.

You see, with the ongoing exciting prospect of having weekends off, I want to be able to have 2 days of sometimes not all scheduled up...you know, just in case I want to go away? During this time of year, I have the urge to get in the car and drive...go somewhere, hike, play...enjoy my life away from my regular schedule (and with The Honey of a Car, and all my wonderful peeps...this is becoming more of a reality)

That being said...My mother, Rozzie and I all got together this Sunday for a little errand running, Capri buying (you see, the Rozz is growing so very fast...10 years-old and 5'2", we can't actually keep her in clothes...which is certainly unusual for my family, as we can keep anyone in clothes...it's a gift) eating and general fun...Starting with some lovely burritos. I found these new brown rice (wheat and gluten free) tortillas, and have been dying to try them out. I marinated some yellow and green squash, bell peppers, carrots, olives, fresh garlic and cilantro in olive oil, rice wine vinegar, salt/pepper and a bit of maple syrup (just a smidge to cut the extremeness of the vinegar) and we put that combo, with some adzuki beans...topped with guac. into the tortillas. They were quite good, although we decided that the tortillas may be a little less stiff if they were warmed up a bit. You know how starchy rice can get...and of course, we had some hazelnut frapps. (cause we were going to go shopping for aforementioned Capris, and yard stuff for my mom, and we certainly needed sustenance...uh-huh)

Then, after unloading 8 Cu. Ft. of composted mulch (otherwise known as dragging it out of the car and across to her yard without dropping it on our feet) we came back here for some pedicures...or as we coined it:
The taming of the hooves and talons

It was lovely. This was both my mom and Rozzie's first pedi. and after doing this at Dina's myself some time ago...I became quickly addicted. Living in AZ tends to be a bit of a dry experience for the tootsies...making ones feet and heels susceptible to cracking and splitting with the deadly combination of the lack of moisture and the wearing of sandals. So, it's important to keep the feet smooth and moisturized...

Plus, if I ever walk across something silk, I won't snag it with my heels
(cause that happens so often doesn't it?)
