Have you ever wondered why the weather is beautiful during the work week and crap during the weekend?
My sister-in-law once told me that she thought it was because by Friday, all the workersâ€™ cars pollute the air so badly the weather take a turn for the worse. After two days â€˜offâ€™ on the weekend, the weather returns to beautiful just in time for Monday.
I am not sure this makes any scientific sense, but itâ€™s a better explanation than â€œthe universe simply hates us all.â€
So â€“ know how I mentioned that Iâ€™m in a Thai food rut? I have discovered something awesome to do with takeout Thai. Whenever I order a curry, I always get one portionâ€™s worth of tofu and veggies and a TON of sauce. Instead of just tossing the sauce, Iâ€™ve been saving it and reusing it with freshly stir-fried tofu and veggies. It tastes practically the same as the restaurant version â€“ two meals for the price of one!
I mixed the curry sauce in with new tofu and chopped spinach. Yum.
And munched on a banana while stocking supplements.
Itâ€™s almost the weekend in just a FEWâ€¦ MOREâ€¦ HOURS. Canâ€™t wait for a break (and for the crappy weather to roll in, no doubt. Hereâ€™s to hoping itâ€™s lovely out!).
The Naked Face Project: I usually do my updates on Thursday or Friday but, I confess, Iâ€™m stuck for something to take about this week. I think thatâ€™s because Iâ€™ve pretty much reached my emotional â€˜conclusionâ€™ of the Project and found what I was seeking by giving up beauty rituals for 60 days (well, 45 thus far). Iâ€™ll do an update next week, but until then, Iâ€™ll share this one tidbit: Molly Barker and I were discussing how this Project has made us LAUGH and SMILE more often and more deeply. She wrote a great post on this very subject, as well as a Top 10 list of what sheâ€™s learned from working with 8 â€“ 10 year olds. Happy reading!
