Who knew she's do such a great job, the kitchen never looked better. Damn!
Seven days later, 'hey honey, you want to make some money? I'll pay you $25. every Wednesday if you do all the dishes and keep the kitchen spotless? 'Oh yeah' she said with a smile as I went for my purse.
17's a good age!

My favorite? The little one she made just for me with the simplest of ingredients, a little goat cheese, a leaf or two of basil, a thin slice of tomato, a sprinkling of pine nuts. She was right.

Today was week two, day three of my beginner yoga class. We primarily worked on breathing exercises today--it's pretty interesting.
Last Thursday, right before class, I saw one of my classmates outside the building. She watched me coming from across the street at Starbuck's, cappuccino in hand. When we caught up, she expressed her shock that I was drinking coffee before yoga.
Well why not? (oh course, I said nothing) I thought of this all week. So this morning, I went without, planning to get the cappuccino after class instead. Never again, between yawning and nearly falling asleep twice, I could never quite clear my mind of what I missed, that morning routine I enjoy so. Next time, I follow my heart and body and do what I want. Cappuccino before yoga? If that's what I desire, darn right, that's what I do!

I suspect at dinner tonight, she'll still be wearing around her neck, the first place ribbon she brought home today.

Olivia and I took the opportunity this afternoon to practice her driving, now that she has her learner's permit. Round and round in the neighborhood, hand over hand turning, remember the turn signals, watch that mailbox. Ahh, there's so much to learn.
She's quite cautious so we're working on getting her speed above 15mph. Ahh, in time I guess!

This is my first non-blurry photo of Savannah. I finally learned the secret--there is a glass door between us. The sun is setting, I can see the glow on her fur. She thinks it's supper time, so she's getting in close to the glass door to see if I'm going for the food bin. Nope, not this time girl, I'm taking pictures!

"In order to graduate on time, I had to double up on my gym classes. The only trouble was, they were not back to back, so I had to change clothes twice."
