I got a dozen roses for each of the 10 years Sr. Elizondo and I have been together. I happily have bouquets all around my house now.
My penchant for reading has returned to me. I started and finished, “The Five”. It tells the life of the 5 women victims of Jack the Ripper. This is NOT a story about the Ripper, simply about the lives of the women leading up to their fateful nights. I enjoyed this book so much more than I thought I would. Definite recommend.
My ZIIP arrived. My face is ready to be tightened up!
This midi shirt dress from Zara had me at Hello….and it has pockets.:)
Window-swap.com. It’s a website where you can see peoples views from their homes, as well as share your own. A quarantined developed app I’m sure.
Playa del Carmen postponed yet again. Keeping hope alive for September.
I have developed an addiction to Nutella sorbet that my neighbor makes, sells, and now delivers. It’s like having an on-call ice cream truck.
I was a quarantine quitter this week. I went to a couple of clothing stores (with mask and plenty of hand gel of course). Then the day after my shopping trip, Mty was put in complete lockdown due to hospitals at max capacity. Why did I go out?… Not a great decision on my part, but I did buy a few purchases.
An oversized button down and cream wide leg jeans, both from Pull & Bear. From Women Secret, a brightly patterned beach type dress and summery wrap dress.
I’ve been on an old school French film kick.
Still trying to do my part for the environment. Material makeup remover pads that came with a bag for the washing machine.
My balcony garden is growing and my recent jasmine purchase is on its second bloom. I had no idea a garden could be exciting.
I finally found a Golden Milk I somewhat like. It’s an acquired taste.
I had to giggle when I opened our refrigerator door to find this little suprise.
Sr. Elizondo and I have been talking about a possible move in the near future. Our current 4 story home is not our “forever home”. While house browsing to see what’s available, we walked into this kitchen and instantly fell in love. Light wood with white quartz, plenty of storage and plenty of space.
SamSam continues to maintain her hummingbird vigilance.
My current read is The Great Gatsby. I hate when I see a movie before the book. Just as I thought, the Hollywood visual will not escape my mind while reading it.
I made Keto Lemon Cheesecake jars. SO FRICKIN GOOD. I tasted no difference from the real thing and it literally took about 10 minutes to make.
Using a mixer, blend: 8oz cream cheese, 3 tbsp heavy cream, 1/4 cup lemon juice, 1/4 cup Stevia, 2 tbsp melted coconut oil, 1 tsp lemon grated lemon zest (optional). Set aside. For the crumble: 1/2 cup Almond flour, 1 tbsp Stevia, 1/8 tsp salt, 1 tsp vanilla extract, 1 tbsp melted coconut oil. Use a fork to blend into a crumble. Layer in a jar and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
Speaking of food, Sr. Elizondo made one of my favorite soups: Pork, Squash, and Corn. I’m set for quite awhile!
I finished my 40 day Kirtan Kriya Meditation, along with my gratitude journal. Next milestone: 90 day.
