Happy Morselicious Monday!
Hope you had a grand weekend!
Mine was quite productive:
The Friday Food Fair in Pasadena
was fantastic and
thank you, Scott,
for creating my beautiful display!
Saturday’s Demos at www.mothersmarket.com
Costa Mesa & Laguna Woods were wonderful.
I met lots of super cool people and gained a
new ADORABLE Morsel Sized Morsel Fan.
This 2 year old LOVES the Chocolate Chip Morsels!
Sunday was exactly what Sunday’s are
supposed to be, but I, for one, am guilty
of RARELY following the rules.
And it was FANFRIGGINTASTIC!!
Taking a break from daily routines
and rituals can be exactly what the Dr. prescribed!
Breaks & Rituals (click for previous blog)
My morning started with a delectable cup of coffee
with Coconut Milk (such a TREAT)
and then putzed around in my garden
repotting, pruning and watering
my delightful desert plants!
Gardening burns some calories
and I needed fuel,
so I created another tasty & healthy smoothie
for breakfast (see recipe below),
got in a great work out and then met
Doug for a massage! AAAAAAHHHHHH!
The benefits and powers a good deep tissue
massage offer are priceless!
While my masseuse was
getting every knot and kink
worked out, my mind began to wander,
as minds do, and I dreamt of the day
when I can afford my own personal masseuse
or at least, one a week, heck, I’d really love
one a day!
Someone asked me when I first moved to
L.A., “If you had a plethora of extra spending
money, what luxuries would you splurge on?“
I didn’t have to think more than a second!
1) A Chauffer (anyone who lives in L.A. has
GOT to understand this!)
2) A Masseuse
I’ve never been a super frilly gal.
I can count on one hand the number of
mani/pedi’s and facials I’ve had and
being an Actor in this town, that’s kind
of unheard of, yet, I’ve
always been a dabbler (is that even a word?)
in D.I.Y. creative experiments.
It started in elementary school,
when I tried to hatch an egg
by putting it under my dolls in their
own special doll crib.
The stench peeked my Mom’s
curiosity and horror, which quickly ended
that failed experiment.
You might recall, another failed
Remember the birthday cake I made for
my dog, Porky? (click this link for a refresher)
There are plenty more,
many of them include
DIY facial & hair masks,
but I’ll save those for
a future funnier blog.
And, for the record,
we all learn from our mistakes.
Remember the blog: Learning from our mistakes
You are probably wondering,
is there a morsel to this story?
Life is about choices
and since I don’t have a bottomless
pocket book (I know, who uses that word anymore?)
I have to choose between regular mani/pedis
or occasional-much needed and very SPECIAL
The chauffer?! Still dreaming!!
And in this L.A. Traffic,
I’m thinking a helicopter pilot is more practical!
How do you splurge?
What do you LOVE to do on your day off?
Do you have a dream day?
