So it’s laundry day. It’s taking more time lately because we’re also doing my grandmother’s laundry. I woke at 7 this morning, though, and we got a nice and early start. Hopefully, that will help and we’ll get back home while people are still awake and able to help with bringing things in.

Yesterday was a good day, right up until it wasn’t. I had an amazing smoothie experience for my morning snack, I had a good lunch, and I was going to go to a friend’s party.

Kale, since I’m out now. Bananas. Sweet potatoes. And maybe that’s it I think. Parsley, I think, because I’d like to make some Tabouleh. I’m armed with my mom’s recipe.
