I was talking to a medical student today about my annoying morning, and she said not to worry about it--that it's just not worth the wrinkles. So taking her advice, I have done what I can to enjoy the rest of my day. And I think I have done a pretty good job.
First, I have had my ipod on the entire day. Literally. I've been listening to my songs for 7 hours straight. And let me tell you--it is nice. Rockin' out in my little cubicle. Tapping my foot. Bobbing my head. Trying not to sing along since I do work in an office of cubicles. And do you know what? I have gotten A LOT done!
Second, I signed up as a shareholder in a local organic farm. If you haven't heard of Community Supported Agriculture (CSA), check it out. While browsing the web a couple weeks ago to find out which produce is in season, I came across Two Small Farms' site for a couple of farms in the Watsonville/Hollister area (my neck of the woods). I really wanted to sign up for their CSA program, but decided I just don't cook enough to justify getting an entire supply of produce every week. But a few days ago, I was checking Backyard Farming (a blog I frequent in order to dream about gardening) and saw this post about joining a CSA. It inspired me. I promised Christian I would start cooking if he let me sign up, and he was all for that idea. Unfortunately Two Small Farms is full for the 2008 season (like half the farms around here), so today I signed up for Full Belly Farm in Guinda, CA. I'll start getting produce in a couple weeks. Signing up definitely made me feel better.
And last but not least, I'm about to cut up an entire mango at my desk and eat it all. Mmmmmm.
Today has definitely turned out much better than it started. And tomorrow morning my mom, Ashley, and I are going to the Cabrillo Plant Sale. I plan on spending tomorrow afternoon rearranging my balcony garden to grow vegetables. Or maybe I'll be out rearranging at midnight tonight. I've been known to do that. I can't wait!
