Vegan Heaven in Verona

Figgy's vegan friend Boaty [we like nicknames around here] raved about a restaurant she had been to with her mom, Rachael. Fig was home a couple of days with her summer class schedule, so we checked it out for lunch. 

Name: Positivitea.
GPS: Bloomfield Avenue in Verona.
Plate: Bean Jr. Burger with side of kale slaw, excellent, nice big roll, great sauce, $9.50. For Fig, a very spicy and good wrap called The Burning Man, $11.
Cup: I Am Balanced juice blend [apple, carrot, celery], $5.99. Fig had Cookies 'N Cream Nice Kream Milkshake  and loved it, $6.99.
Return? Yes. Whole lot of waffles, organic teas and organic coffees we haven't tried yet. Pricey, with tax and a couple bucks for tip jar--about $36. But delicious and healthy.

1. Boot camp in park. So hot that my hair felt like a fur hat, but glad to be among friends.
2. That vegan lunch.
3. Plenty of ice water.

Back from the Dark Side

With a little help from 7 a.m, support group, love from Sis, concern from my old friend Kim [a conversation via email], a million glasses of ice water, Private Benjamin session--and a writing assignment from my editor Amy, due today. Good night. Peace.

Spring Lake Five

A sailboat on the blue sea today.

I shaved 6 minutes off last year's time though I'm still slow as molasses.

Grateful for my friends and glad to do this race with H. every year. Gnite.

Role Models

Our niece, Florida Orange, left, graduated today from FIT, the top-tier fashion school. Punchy and I took the bus and subway in for the celebration dinner.

Punchy and Figgy outside Trattoria Spaghetto on Bleecker Street in NYC. Great Italian food.

Below, beautiful Florida Orange let Punchy model cap and gown. Good night, sweet dreams. Graduations are a great thing, and a golden goal for little [and big] girls.
