mlc on our buddha deck wearing his new hat that nearly fits me. M is my most favorite squeezable thing of ALL. mlc & me in the park at the lilac festival, 2006. Do you love to read oprah's list of favorite things? I'm inspired to create my own here: gina g pottery -found gina at the lilac fest up here-her imperfect, earthy mugs & bowls are my favorite home art of the summer. B says the chunky vase on my table feels like it has "hip dimples" when you pick it up-so gloriously feminine. the kind of potter that makes me want to drop everything and buy a wheel and kiln.... tangerine soda -because i'm a sugar addict and these guys don't add any which makes me feel validated in rotting my teeth and body chemistry on occasion. bralessness -letcha freak flag fly and your boobs, too. white sage -or salvia ape, as it was nicknamed when i worked in the native seed biz. so sacred to fill the house with purifying smoke-did it late last night in order to infiltrate my dreams. fortune cookies -"be true and trust each other and all will be well"-the perfect answer to a burning question i had this week.... big calm -ooh this old album is so mellowy good with that sultry voice. mommy baby yoga -this is turning out to be a great dvd habit-M loves it and i get to stretch those pinching parts in my flying trapezius. coconut almond body souffle -a major splurge with a gift certificate from B at the day spa. this stuff is heroine for the senses. laura mercier does not mess around. ginger peach tea -and look at the crazy new line they have that appeals to all of my lusty packaging desires. anasazi pot beans and cornbread - boutique beans. heirlooms, yo. look like something off of the mythological pilgrim/indian dinner table. yummmmyyyy!!! with a piece of kombu seaweed thrown in while cooking. I have been cooking like a crazy person-last week mushroom pot pies, this week yellow curried squash with cilantro and cashews. What's in your pot? As lovely leonie loves to say.
