In order to get my mind off of ickyness of a couple hours ago, I'm reminding myself of something great about today.

A co worker I haven't seen in a long time worked today. She's battling some major health stuff, un-diagnosed stuff. Major migraine-type sounding-things. It was a short shift but still.

She told me she had a dream about me last night. In which the two of us were roommates in a fancy apartment in New York City together. I told her if I win the lottery I'll buy us that apartment.

We both get this weird feeling that we have some kind of mystical connection. Cute.

Mine is from yesterday but it was my birthday. The whole of last week I was a bit peed off with friends cancelling on me etc and then my workmate surprised me Friday with cupcakes that she got up at 5am to make that day especially for me (and she doesn't really bake and had never made anything vegan).

And then yesterday I had a lovely day in the garden with my family and bff and we had a barbecue and it was great.

And today it's beautiful and sunny outside and I have salsa class tonight and I made cupcakes for everyone.

AAAAANNND on Friday I'm going on holiday with Jojo and I am so freakin excited I may explode! I got my euros today and most of my washing is already done. Also I remembered to buy Vitamin B and even found vegan ones in the supermarket. (Last time I went abroad I got eaten to shiitake by mozzies, and I heard taking vit b helps - clutching at straws!!) This week shall be full of win.

Then we just walked down and had a nice dinner at Veg Out, who has lovely waitstaff and it's just all around amazing to have a vegan restaurant (well, we have a couple) a short jaunt from home.

My little sister was there yesterday! (I guess she's not little: she's 27 now). She was boasting to me about her amazing meal when I had a shitty overpriced birthday meal. I have to go visit her.

Really?! Cool! It's literally a 10 minute walk from our apartment. You'll have to come visit sometime :)

job that just fell into my lap this morning, a subject i can do with one hand tied behind my back, which will pay for new phones for me and the kid.
all these jobs that are coming are all strange- they are all for amounts which are more or less EXACTLY the amount of things I have to pay for [I have gotten two payments this week which were for EXACTLY the amount of our plane tickets. This job today is paid in GBP and when I did the conversion it came out to be exactly the total price of the phones we were looking at. Stuff like this is very, very strange, and/or I am totally mental, but I love it.)

This forking weekend. Like, the whole thing. I participated in the 'Epic Skill Swap 2013' and it was EPIC. not as epic as it could've been due to last minute cancels by people who were supposed to come, but still. I learned self defense, I practiced bottle cutting which I'd never even heard of before, watched soldering while halfway napping on a rundown porch, had my hair cut, made lunch for people including home made bread, renewed my intention to learn how to maintain my own bike. SWIMMING. I went swimming in a two piece I've owned for two years and have been too afraid to wear.

Anyone in the northeast should come to this next year. It's really really cool.

This does sound really cool!


It really does!!

Thing number one: my amazing department at work has decided that morris dancing is an ideal team-building exercise.

Thing number two: playing Pokémon in the sunshine after work.

Thing number three: drinking beer in the sunshine with my amazing friend.

Thing number four: Mushroom, onion and tofu fried in chilli and golden syrup on roasted flat mushrooms with smoked soya cheese. Ommy nom nom nom.

My dad is still here. I had to work today, but I worked from home so I could at least kind of be around with him (though I think he is EXTREMELY uninterested it my work now; "so, that's what you do? All day?).

We took a walk at lunch time because he wanted to check out a charity shop in my neighborhood. The rain had cleared and the weather was beautiful, and he bought me the best mug ever for $0.50. It's black and reads, "What do we want? Coffee! When do we want it? I will forking cut you."

That mug sounds awesome!

I was invited to join someone on a free road trip and tickets to Bonnaroo. I cannot even sit still I'm so excited.

[and your day sounds a bit like mine- today FC played hookey since she is officially withdrawn and we have a few days left. I had a big job come this morning and her words were pretty much the same: "this is what you do when you work at home??" ayup.]

Grandma walked to the couch and then decided to eat dinner in the kitchen instead of her room. Then mom came home with lots of vegan treats from her office (tamales!), which was "celebrating" the transition from one set of software to another, and tried to make it less headachey by offering people tons of free vegan food. (Awesome.) Then I ran down our mountain at sunset. The grandma situation is still unresolved, but at least there are some nice moments in between the rest of the yuck.

There is a bunch of little awesome things. Like spicy refried beans for breakfast, yoga, my friend quitting smoking... BUT, the best is that my friend and I keep discovering that we have the same goals and life lists. It is pretty fabulous

reading "calling dr Laura" by Nicole Georges at work was the best decision I've ever made.

I HAVE THE BEST HUSBAND EVER. I have been pining away for a new tattoo for a while now, but $$$. Well, it's my birthday on July 1st. Trevor just emerged from his art studio and said, "There's a present for you hiding somewhere in the apartment. You're allowed to look for it and I'll give you clues." I couldn't figure it out, and I was about to give up and then I looked under my pillow on the bed. There was a little handmade notebook!

The first page said, "Happy birthday..." the next page said, "June 29th, for your 29th birthday..." the next page, "Because you deserve only the best, and because I love you so much, 12:00..." (!!!!) the next page said the name of one of my favourite tattooers right now, and the words, "Anything you want!"

I started bawling from the shock! I can't believe my good fortune in finding someone so rad. I'm going to start crying again!

The papayas are the cutest and most inspiring couple ever (I really mean that... you guys have been together a long time and you're so mushily in love... it makes me happy to see that that's possible.)

My hiking/partner person is coming to visit for a month this summer!

And this really will only make sense to CQ, but he's OK'd going to Sessions! WHEEEEEEEEE (I mean, obviously, I can go, but I wanted to see if he wouldn't mind going because otherwise I'd rather just spend the whole month hanging out with him)

Paprikapapaya - your husband sounds amazing. I would bawl too if someone did that for me.

Best part about my day: iphones. As is, we both finally upgraded to the 21st century and got them. So I've been playing with mine all night and I got to call my mom on Facetime. She almost teared up. We moved away three months ago and it's been really hard for all my family so this is awesome and I can see them! I love technology.
