Happy Friday! I have said it before and I will say it again I love being near water. While I prefer the ocean, lakes and pools also make me happy. There is just something about the water that makes me feel at ease. I am planning on floating in the pool for a bit today with one of my good friends. I just got off a video chat with my bestie. She lives in NH. Although we text often, we try to get in a video chat every so often. She has the day off today. It was good to see her face and chat. Yesterday, I went to get my oil changed. The place I go is so convenient and quick. You get to stay in your car the entire time. While I was there I heard and saw a horrible car accident. I got the chills from hearing the impact of the crash. When I drove out I saw one car completely smashed and another car that had spun in the opposite direction. I really hope everyone is okay. That was such a scary thing to see and hear.
I am a foodie! I love to cook (especially when I have time), I also enjoy going to new restaurants. I recently made a cumber salad and I cannot stop eating it. It so simple to make. You take some cucumbers and cut them up (sticks or rounds) and then you add some tamari, a splash of sesame oil, a splash of rice vinegar, and then sprinkle with everything but the bagel seasoning. Another thing that I have enjoyed eating this summer is a dip that you can use on crackers or to eat veggies with. You take two avocados, a brick of cream cheese, and the juice of half a lemon. Take those ingredients and blend until well incorporated and then top with everything but the bagel seasoning.
I will leave you with one of my favorite pictures that I took years ago.
