i think she might like me...

but that's just a theory...

sunday's spiritual thought...

When all of us are acknowledged as the human equals that we really are, there will be no space left for bullying. It will no longer be wrong to choose one thing over another. Equality and Separation cannot exist in the same space.
-jason mraz

regardless of whether or not you care for his music, his journal is definitely worth a gander...

and a not so spiritual thought...

if you don't actually own a dog, it's considered slightly weird, and somewhat creepy to hang out at the dog park.

i get it, you like dogs, and that's cool. but you don't see people who enjoy children going and hanging out at playgrounds and preschools (at least not without soliciting some very strange reactions).

sunday's spiritual thought...

two intertwining thoughts for the week:

"Being defeated is often a temporary condition.
Giving up is what makes it permanent."
- Maryilyn vos Savant

But as for you, be strong and do not give up,
for your work will be rewarded."
2 Chronicles 15:7

i had a really rough weekend, and almost gave up at one point. i am glad to have made it through, and will hopefully be better for it.

my mood today can not be described by any other word. i came into work, had my usual sausage sandwich-no cheese from starbucks, accompanied by a delightful mocha soy frapiccino.

then, when my boss was done with her morning appointments, she said, 'how you would you like to go out to lunch? my treat.' sweeter words have never been uttered.

we dined on sushi that was delicious. the avocado was so buttery and sweet, and she introduced me to the deliciousness that is the pistachio avocado role. we also had some yellow fin, shrimp, and a dragon roll. with yummy salad and some miso, it was a lovely little lunch.

in other fabulous news, is everyone aware of what is happening in two weeks?
i know it will be predictable, and probably in no way measure up to the show in any way, but who cares? i still love these girls...

oh and these girls too:

sunday's spiritual thought...

The gain in self confidence of having accomplished a tiresome labor is immense.

Thomas A. Bennett

dealing with the cravings...

so remember how i was craving this?

well i figured the next best thing would be to seek out some hawaiian food...lucky for me there is a great hawiian food place right across the way from where i work. it's called the 'lava pit'. and this is what hawaiian food looks like in california:
it's no papa ole's, but it hit the spot...

oh and i made some of these too, for my friend's 30th birthday.
and i started doing a little mystery shopping again...for those of you keeping track, that's job #5.

just like henry higgins...

i've grown kind of fond of her face...

not that i don't still love my first born...

i just love my cute little fur family.

sunday's spiritual thought...

Bless the LORD, O my soul, And forget none of His benefits;
Who pardons all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases;
Who redeems your life from the pit,
Who crowns you with loving-kindness and compassion.
Psalm 103:2-4
