... or at least my new favorite drink. I can *feel* the weight piling on to my hips as I drink it though.
The spiced coconut mocha freeze.
Ingredients: Dagoba organic drinking chocolate, espresso, coconut milk, cayenne, cinnamon, orange zest, ice. Pulverize in blender.
Pros: Unbelievably delicious; contains coffee; naturally lactose-free.
Cons: Not conducive to thinning.
This seems as good a time as any to fill you all in on the fun adventures recently.
Let's see: Thursday I spent half the day hanging out with journey2master
right here in the little café that could, talking about photography and life and coming out and stuff, then had scrummy Mexican down the road and I tasted my first chicken mole (interesting) then I went and volunteered at the community center I'm volunteering at, helping the teens there put together a zine. Then I hung out with them and watched an awesome movie that is doing festival circuits here: The Curiosity of Chance
which you should definitely check out, crystal_storm
Friday we had a meeting with a financial planner and now we have a bunch of socially responsible investments he's going to make for us -- it's kind of interesting, because he started out saying he didn't think we could get a diversified portfolio with just green funds and I pshawed and said "watch me" and found various funds for him and then he went looking for more and now we have a very good-looking, diversified portfolio with the right balance of big funds that exclude bad stocks and little funds that positively screen for good stocks and he's happy and we're happy.
Can't remember what we did in the afternoon... We stayed home and watched Children of Men
on DVD in the evening.
Then Saturday was Lughnasadh, so we had a harvest picnic. First we went to breakfast in a nearby town and to a farmer's markets and bought fresh organic berries and breads and eggs, and then we met with friends in the park and played Scrabble and Fluxx, laughed at the geese and fed the squirrels raspberries.
And then, to complete the lazy day, we went and saw The Bourne Ultimatum
. It was super. Yesterday doesn't really bear mentioning because Sunday is cleaning day.
