Happy MORSELICIOUS Monday!
How was your weekend? What did you do? I started the weekend with a magnificent hike with my friend, Nicola. The misty ocean fog was still making its way through the mountains and if I let my imagination wander, I could have sworn we were trekking through the grassy knolls of Ireland. No, this isn’t a pix of our hike, just wanted to show you what my imagination looks like…
Then, a few of my cohorts from IIN and I got together for a study session/potluck/share fest. Michelle made a delicious quinoa salad. Edie made mixed greens & wild rice tempeh with a delectable vinaigrette. Suzi sprouted a buckwheat caramelized onion raw pizza. OMG-YUM! I, of course made MORSELS! I’m blessed to be in school with such fascinating women. Doug and I attended my ‘lil’ sis, Meni’s orchestral concert.
She plays viola and was incredible! Sunday, we took the Metro downtown, an adventure in Los Angeles and a great mini-stair work-out!
We saw the Tony Award winning performance of Stephen Sondheim’s, FOLLIES at the Ahmanson Theatre.
This show is LEGENDARY and inspiring! My good friend, Jenifer is in the show and she just found out she’s performing at the Tony Awards! Soo excited for her!
