home from the salt mines

poor chris has really had the stuffing knocked out of him. he's dead asleep at almost 9:30 a.m. and i've been up and out with the dogs, come home & had my 2nd cuppa, made breakfast (s'm'oatmeal with raw sunnies and punkin seeds cooked in), and am now getting ready to shower and head out.

i try to never wake babies or sick people. not that he's really sick, just getting over a cold; but the emotional wringing of the last week or so has taken it's toll as well.

i have 4 private clients today, yippee! that will make a big dent in the rent check.

we had lunch yesterday with 2 women i used to work with years ago. we all worked in different departments at a natural foods cooperative warehouse. now the 2 of them work for (shameless plug) MR. BEER, which as you may have guessed is a home-brewing kit. for the non-drinkers out there they have MR. ROOTBEER. (i haven't tried either, but keep meaning's on the list!)

we ate at a tucson legend, Cafe Poca Cosa, that's changed locations 3 times at least in its brief history. it was deserted at 11:00 a.m. when we showed up, and by 12:15 when we left it was SRO. the food is fabulous, mexican gourmet home-cookin'. i say that last bit b/c every meal is served with the humble accoutrements of beans, rice and little corn tortillas to sop up every last bit.

thanks you 2! we had fun!

afterwards we headed over to the international farmer's market--coincidentally right down the street from the co-op warehouse--for a 25# bag of carrots. so many people want to meet chris, but i'm phobic about entertaining, so we've been eating out a lot. to make up for it we've been juicing a lot of carrots. i haven't had my old champion juicer out in years....but now we're having carrot-apple-ginger and carrot-celery-cilantro juice on a regular basis. helps offset the restaurant food!

after chris goes back north, i'm planning a long-overdue internal cleanse--lighten up the diet, drink lots of juice, etc. spring cleaning....
