I feel like writing up a long entry.
Maybe because I had a long weekend?
Friday night we went out to see John Oliver live at Warner. Had pizza & beer and then stayed out too late and had to catch a Metro transfer bus home because the DC Metro is terrible and always closing for repairs and always catching on fire. I could write paragraph after paragraph of my grievances towards the metro system.
Saturday was shopping. I went on a mission to find a better hand cream than all the others I’ve have/had. I’m already getting chapped fingertips and it’s hardly winter. I ended up at L’Occitane. I went with their 20% shea butter hand cream and so far it’s done what my other creams couldn’t and without a greasy mess. I also got their extra-gentle lotion for winter mornings. I like unscented, fast absorbing, no residue lotion for my winter morning routine.
I got their holiday glam kit with my purchase and the lip gloss “Fleur d’Or & Acacia Lip Gloss” that’s included is amazing. It’s scented with a light perfume but not too much. It’s also slightly flavored and incredibly moisturizing and subtly sparkling and just holiday perfect.
Sunday I woke up and made a roll of cinnamon buns and then ate all 5 while watching Supernatural. I really couldn’t have planned the morning any better than that. Then I fell asleep for something like 3 hours. I didn’t even realize I was so exhausted. Or maybe I slipped into a sugar coma…
That night we headed out to ShopHouse to see what the creator of Chipotle was doing with curry and on the way I saw that Max Brenner’s chocolate cafe had opened so we stopped there for dessert. Ordered an Earl Grey tea infusion and the European fondue where the fondue pots are all heated by tea light candles and they give you a small grill to roast your marshmallows over open flame and hell yes I will be back.
Monday. Well Monday I had the day off work but mid-morning I started to feel sick and by the afternoon I felt worse and I just stayed in and then this morning I felt poorly as well but it comes and goes now.
Unmistakably autumn now. We picked up a pumpkin for carving next week. Same place with the berry picking from a few weeks ago. Getting our pumpkins here has become a bit of a tradition over the years.
