My friend Anna came over with take-out Thai, and we chatted on my couch over wine and delicious food. It was great catching up with her, and it was also great being in bed by midnight. ;)
I slept late! Then read some of this:
which I love so far, and then eventually moseyed on out of the house, and hit up the Jeremys 60% off sale! Bought this little dress and this robe:
Goodness I think that robe is pretty. And both for a grand total of less than $30, thanks to the megasale. It was worth wading through the crowded aisles of women clamoring at designer deals! Although my heart is crushed that I missed the 60% off SHOE sale the weekend prior. People, Jeremys carries Manolo Blahnik, Jimmy Choo, Louboutin, Prada, etc. etc. . . what did I do to piss off the gods enough to miss the 60% off shoe sale?! Then again, had I known about it, I very well might have emptied my bank account, so perhaps it's a blessing in disguise.
After shopping, a bunch of errands, and darting around dodging raindrops all afternoon, I came home and stayed in by myself Saturday night, wearing slippers that Summer sent me and watching a movie that Micaela sent me. So cozy!
Despite wanting to sleep in, I woke up early and ate some yogurt, granola, & raspberries so I'd be energized for yoga with my friend Audrey. We went to the Berkeley lululemon's free Sunday morning class, which was mellow and energizing at the same time--just what I needed. I managed to hold my crow pose for about 2.2 seconds, but then toppled over and twisted my wrist. Eh, no pain no gain, right?

Can y'all do crow pose? I can get there, usually, but I can't hold it for long. Something to work on, I suppose. My favorite pose is pigeon, cause it stretches my hips so gooooooood . . .
Audrey and I walked across the street for coffee after class, and sat for an hour chatting about boys and work and all those kinds of things. I love girlfriends, seriously. They make life infinitely better. Female solidarity--can't get enough.
I got home a little after noon, cooked up some delicious veggie curry, and worked on my San Quentin lesson plans/critiqued last week's homework before heading to babysit Freeman in San Francisco at 5:30. Slow weekends with free afternoons make me so happy. It makes a world of difference in my energy level. If I had time for yoga, savoring coffee, and reading every morning, I'd be a much more balanced person.
Butttttt . . . here's to Monday!
