Went for a wonderful massage this morning with the excellent Jennifer Jacobsen. I was so tired afterward. But being single, a girl needs to be touched, and massage is such a good way to get the starved skin what it wants. I hope to be able to get myself to her Thursday night yoga class.
Took myself out to eat for lunch at a place I had passed a few times and was curious about. RIPE, its name, using organic, local, and sustainable foods. I ordered the fish tacos, which were as far from any taco I've ever eaten, but in a good way. Arugula, peppers, cucumber, onions, local caught fish, served not on a taco shell but on freshly made crepes! Very nice, with a side of yummy slaw. What was also really great about RIPE is their lounge, small, but with comfy sofas, a fake fireplace, and an honor system lending library.
I drove down to the beach with the notion of going for a quick swim, but the clouds were pouring in and it appeared too wavy. I didn't see anyone in the surf, so I headed back into town towards home. I stopped at the Democratic headquarters, picked up an Obama/Biden yard sign, and signed up to volunteer. I decided to stop at the pool for a quick dip since it wasn't raining yet. I didn't have my goggles, so just jogged in the water a while. Felt so nice.
Finally home, I was bushed so got into bed with the critters and tranced out for a while. Tried to watch the presidential debate, but got immediately bored. It doesn't matter what they say, because whomever is elected will have to deal with the legislature and many advisors telling them what to do; whatever they promise may not be possible, given the compromises that inevitably have to be made.
Bought a eucalyptus tree at the hardware store on sale. I so like that scent. Also found my stash of garden seeds after looking for two weeks. Will still try to get some lettuce, beets, carrots, kale, into the garden, although it is late. But the root veggies will be fine, even if we get a freeze in December. So many beautiful flowers are in bloom in my yard:
