Day 284 - Bright Lights, Big City

Today was my only day to run errands in the city, so I left mid-morning to get as much done as I could. 

  • Costco
  • Superstore
  • Bank
  • Staples
  • Chapters
  • Safeway
  • Fuel
  • Community Natural Foods
  • Vistek

Yeah. I didn't accomplish much! I was about half-way through my list when I got a whopper of a headache! I grabbed a quick bite to eat & headed home. Tomorrow is chemo & I need to get stuff ready for that. Additionally, I'd like to get to bed 4+ hrs before I need to wake up. I have the idea that if I stay up late, I'll be tired & too exhausted to care too much about the treatment. Method to my madness? :o)

A bright point in my day - I've discovered how to make a HEALTHY Vanilla Bean Frappuccino! I'm pretty excited, as it's a yummy drink, but VERY unhealthy & WAY too expensive to enjoy. If you want to try it here's my SECRET recipe:

  • Vanilla Almond Milk - more
  • Whipping Cream - a little
  • Ice Cubes - some
  • Agave Nectar - a bit
  • Half a Vanilla pod sliced open & scraped into the blender
  • Mix amounts to your discretion & enjoy! (yesterday's blend w/out ice was nice & thick & creamy)

In any case, short day with little to report. Tomorrow will be another long day... Stay tuned!

I did see this SWEET scooter while in town. It's not a Vespa, but I would still drive one! Oooh, a bright red Vespa is on my list! :o)

OMGosh! A scooter with photos of Africa on it!

...And Frangipani flowers!?!? Oh my heart!

I can totally picture myself & Valentina, her ears blowing in the wind, jetting around some sunny location... On our way to meet Papa on his blue Vespa!

That scooter has "Jill" written all over it! Janis.
