Hope y'all don't mind that I'm extra-attuned to my five senses lately....
-A trailer for As We Forgive, a film that Johnny and I want to see (along with The Wrestler and Watchmen).
-Elana's "Nutella" recipe. I only need to sub erythritol or liquid stevia for the agave nectar. Oh, yum.
-I recently bumped up her brownies in my recipe queue as well (subbing with erythritol and unsweetened cacao chips).*
-The TOAST spring/summer 2009 collection. Sure hope my catalog arrives soon.
-Persepolis. I liked it OK, but it's not near as good as the graphic novels.

-Milo playing soccer with a plastic bottle cap during an ungodly hour of the night. I thought I placed all of those in recycling....
-My cell phone ringing when I'm nowhere near it. This always happens to me. It's usually my friend Amy - thank goodness she's patient.
-These Four Walls by Shawn Colvin. What a voice. What a songwriter. She's a longtime favorite.
-No Line on the Horizon by U2 - the best thing they've done in a long time. Amazing.
-IAM's podcast with Nicholas Wolterstorff, then Makoto Fujimura. Made for a good walk around the 'hood.
-Johnny's "rockamole" (guacamole) never gets old.
-Nor does Margie Haack's hummus which I eat by the spoonful.
-I also eat organic unsweetened peanut butter in this lazy manner; very tasty.
-Honeycrisp apple slices topped with coconut cream & cinnamon.
-Echinacea elder tea.
-Tea tree oil shampoo & conditioner.
-Golden Pavilion incense.
-Vanilla bean body lotion.
-Cookies baking in the oven. Again. It was a necessity.
-Thus, the neti pot.
-Happy that U2 was only $3.99 via Amazon mp3.
-Perfection is drinking a mug of hot tea after a chilly walk....
-Then an Epsom salt bath. Ah, the warmth.
* - Such recipes have made me a big fan of Whole Foods's almond butter machine in the bulk aisle. Perhaps I'll grind my own at home one of these days.
