Hi! How was your weekend???? Mine started out with no real plans but then included the following:
Two trips for Forever 21
Two yoga classes at Charm City Yoga
Movie night to see the Ides of March
See my granny and proceed to eat her food
Help my sister move for the 3rd time this year
(This is M’s roommates dog- so cute!)
Baked cookies (see below)
Tackled laundry mountain
The list goes on! Pretty productive I’d say.
After yoga on Saturday am I went to Zia’s café in Towson and got some yummy juice- I think it was ginger, lemon, apple, pear…probably something else that I’m forgetting. And while it was amazing- the service pretty much sucked. I could’ve made my juice myself! It’s been my experience though that a lot of juice and smoothie places have crappy service. Why is that???
So are you ready for Thanksgiving??? I cannot believe the holidays are here and that I am thinking about Christmas gifts! Fall just got here! Every year it comes faster and faster. I just keep telling myself summer will be here before you know it (because I don’t like to be freezing cold or paying for my high gas and electric bill!).
I made vegan cookies today and they would be great for Thanksgiving (and Meatless Monday at that!)! Vegan, oatmeal, raisin, pumpkin, walnut cookies!
So I can’t take credit for these because they’re another one of Emily’s recipes. I followed her directions exactly except for the fact that I decided to add walnuts and probably added a few more raisins! They are so so good.
Check out the recipe here and like I said before- you should read her blog. She just had a baby a month ago and he is adorable!
Let me know if you make them!
**Are you making anything for Thanksgiving dinner? If you are what is it? Are you traveling?**
Share with me! If you want to email me after your Thanksgiving feast with pics of what you made I will post them on the blog. I’m hoping to make mini potatoes with rosemary and garlic, maybe this pie recipe (which is CLEARLY not vegan in any way!), and then maybe this bread which is vegan!
For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food, for love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.

Before I go I wanted to ask for your opinions on how you tackle tough decisions and how do you accept responsibility for your actions? Life is full of lemons and things happen and I think unfortunately by nature that we tend to be selfish beings. We look out for number one…a lot. I’m not preaching right or wrong here- but as we get older I think it’s so important to live every day as a kind and loving being. To your friends, family, animals and the plants! I guess what I’m trying to say is that the more I become aware of my own actions I can’t help but notice how everyone else handles theirs. It’s tricky and it’s a process. But c’est la vie right? Maybe I will talk about karma later this week.
See you tomorrow!!
