Not a hugely exciting week. But I did get a few nice things done.
Linking up with the fabulous Meg
I had a singing lesson
And an acting lesson
I even practiced before both said lessons
I saw my dietician
And I got to my chiropractor, at the other side of town, twice
Favorite moment of the week: being offered a soothing, hot cup of ginger tumeric tea at the chiropractor office. 8 am. Freezing cold outside. Dead quiet office with no one else around. Really peaceful.
Dan has gone gluten free for the time being, so I’ve been trying to offer as many options and and as much help as I can. I mean, besides me still eating really yummy looking gluten-filled bread and fluffy scones infront of him. I’m sure that’s a huge help. But hey, I did pick him up a gluten free parmesan cheddar scone from Toris, so… there.
I’ve been experimenting with making gluten free na’an bread and so played around with a batch of these guys one afternoon. They tasted really good, but I think I need to improve my frying strategy.
I also made a batch of these banana blueberry muffin tops, less because of the gluten free needs and more so because I’d had them on my ‘make‘ list for eons.
Both were very yummy. Dan really, really liked both (especially the muffin tops). I need to do some more experimenting with flat breads, though. If you have any go to recipes for easy gluten free “breads,” let me know!
I made it to Wal Mart and got a shoe mat and coat rack for our hall way
I spent one particularly foggy minded morning – where I couldn’t figure out for the life of me what I wanted to do, should do, or felt like doing – writing out a schedule for all the inexpensive yoga and dance type classes around me. I have so many studios near me and they all have community or karma classes that they offer on different days of the week. I’m finding a very strong pull toward yoga, meditation and dance type movement right now. It feels strange. Raw. Scary. I’m feeling pretty off kilter with all these changes of feeling recently, hence the foggy mind. Anyways, now I have a place where I can easily see which class on which day I could attend.
I learned more about bike maintenance… the hard way. I tried de-frosting my bike and fixing my brakes with oil. Ended up taking it in and spending $50 on entirely new brake cables and pads. Still not sure if I needed to so may have wasted money, but better safe than sorry I guess, right?
I made new face wash, opened up a shiny new toothbrush and a container of floss.
My mom mailed me this book, The Wisdom of the Body, and I immediately began reading it. It’s…. well, it’s beautiful.
So one day for lunch, I got myself a delicious wrap with breaded tofu, garlic mayo, lettuce, carrots, avocado, tomato, pickle and spent a quiet hour reading.
I actually had a night at home – bless the heavens – in which I watched Lady Bird alongside a monster sprinkle cookie, unpictured chocolate and mugs of tea
Dan and I even had a date night where we went to see The Shape of Water. Um. I’m still deciding what I think about this movie. It was beautiful, no doubt. But also very… very… strange….
I sent off a quick audition tape for my agent and caught up on some submissions of my own, including my cover letter to Stratford. Otherwise… not much else going on acting wise these days. Sigh.
One of my closest guy friends from high school was staying with us for the weekend. Not only did that mean Dan and I got to try out our pull out couch for the first time, but we also went out for dinner, where I crushed my craving for a plate of fries. Then we went to a sketch comedy show. It was so fun. I hadn’t laughed that hard in a long time.
And we (read: Dan) made one hell of a good breakfast for us and our guest, complete with local pea meal, organic eggs, bakery bread, blackberries and lots of coffee.

Favorite moment last week?
Did you see The Shape of Water? What did you think?
Any gluten free flat bread type recipes you could suggest?
