i woke up yesterday and was ready to give up. quit. evaporate. it's so damn hot i can't even think and i'm just done.
but as luck would have it, i ended up having the best day. since i'm pretty sure everyone else is getting as sick as i am of baking in this never-ending pre-heating oven, i will kindly pass along to you my plethora of activities yesterday. i highly recommend them all as things to do to get your mind off this:
1.) my brother and i work about 20 feet away from each other, so if i'm ever needing to feed my sweet tooth, i wander down to his office for a handful of marshmallow jelly bellys. yesterday the beans just weren't cutting it. we both needed more and we knew only one thing would do the trick. enter: my personal heaven.
2.) austin farmer's market! it has been so long since i have been to one and i just love the atmosphere of these little local nuggets. the only one during the week is on wednesdays from 4pm to 8pm at the triangle. after my hibiscus-mint tea lemonade (!!), i visited the 5 s ranch and farm booth and bought a pound of vegetables i didn't even know existed.
white squash. i got a great recipe on how to fry them in cornmeal and was also shown how to grill them. are you impressed, little kitchen?!
3.) chedd's! a new eatery in the triangle shopping center where all they serve are grilled cheeses. i'm not too big of a cheese person, but grilled cheese sandys, i can definitely do. the bread is awesome, the cheese flavors and "extras" are too numerous and yummy to count, the outcome is delicious. who would've thought.
4.) 500 days of summer. i think i would've seen g.i. joe: rise of the cobra at this point. anything to get me inside a dark, air-conditioned environment for an hour. but seeing as how g.i. joe doesn't come out until this weekend, i went to a mid-week showing of this cute, kinda corny, rom-com instead. the best part was that wednesdays are matinee-all-day prices at the arbor theater! what a Wink. i'm not going to say anything about the movie, so don't worry, babs. let's just say a VERY special surprise makes a cameo at the very end! and i love hall and oates.
sounds like a pretty fun day, right?! i think i've decided to go on living. and then, wouldn't you know it, it actually poured liquid from the sky this morning. things are looking up.
