It appears as though the sun has retired for the day, so I won't be going back outside. It's chilly here. Also, it's pollen season aka Erin has to take Sudafed everyday season. C'est la vie.

I just read a recipe for Toasted Coconut Mocha Frappuccinos. Gimme.

It's the Food + Wine Festival this weekend. It makes me want things with truffle oil.

Speaking of delicious things. Today my foodie friends and I had a new specialty donut from our downtown donut shop, Glazed. It was Pear Blue Cheese Cabernet. Ohmygoodnessgracious. It's their finest work yet. Although, I am still trying to get my hands on the Strawberry Champagne selection. Mmmm. (Photo Credit: Gabe!)


This morning I got up and made French Toast, (vegetarian) bacon, and coffee for breakfast. I've been to yoga, downtown, and two grocery stores today. I cleaned my ktichen and bathroom and have started on dinner. I swept my porch and watered my plants. Now, I need to hop in the shower and clean up my room - change sheets, dust, the usual. 

Then relax. Read a book/some blogs. Watch a Game of Thrones. And go to bed early so I can get up early to have Sunday Brunch before work. 

That's my weekend plan. How about you all? What have you been up to?

And hey - does anyone else visit multiple grocery stores in one day? Today it was Trader Joe's and Publix. Sometimes I throw in Harris Teeter and Whole Foods. But its rarely just one. Maybe I'm a nut.

I find my days off go to quickly and are often filled with things to get done rather than any sort of relaxing. I think that's how it is for everyone though. I think remembering to be thankful for the simple things is what will get us through. 

PS. In the middle of this blog I got distracted by the newest episode of New Girl on Hulu. I guess that's the sort of thing that can happen on days off!

This is Day 10 of 100 Days of Blogging.

Let's see... visiting Las Vegas, Lake Tahoe, Johnson City (TN), and San Miguel de Allende over the past couple of months has taken a bit of time.

I thought I was one of your foodie friends, but things seemed to have changed. I'm glad you're enjoying the new new thing, though.

I somehow manage to limit myself to one store at a time. I'm not sure how or why, but I'm glad it works out that way.

Charles! You are my foodiest of foodie friends! I'm just talking about the people I work with who care about food the most - and mostly we just eat donuts :)

Let's see each other, soon! This upcoming week is busy, but perhaps the next?

People can be compared to eating donuts. There are those that are special and those that are plain. You are a special one.
