Piping Hot Tea (November 29 2014)[i]

Waking up at 10:30 a.m.

Oatmeal with Cinnamon, Maca Powder, Maple Syrup, Chia Seeds, Raspberries, and Almond Milk. Coffee.

All day shift at China Wok.

Prepping the crunchy noodles into their respective small and large bags. Washing the windows, or as Ling puts it, "sweeping the windows". He'll never understand what that word means.

Mixed Greens Salad with Red Heirloom Spinach, Hard-Boiled Eggs, Beets, and Tomato. Flax Fiber Toast with Vegan Cream Cheese and Pumpkin Butter.

I get to enjoy a temporary rental while my car gets repaired from the accident. I'm at the wheel of a baby blue 2015 Volkswagen Beetle. The pickup on it is stellar. I can accelerate to 55 in about 2 seconds. It's cars like these that make me consider getting a new car. I could save on gas and enjoy the ownership of a new ride. But we'll see. I'm dedicated to my 1995 Toyota Camry. It's as if I married it.

Sipping on a piping hot mug of Honey Black Tea to wash down lunch.

Honey Crisp Apple.

Tofu with Broccoli, Carrots, Onions, and Rice in Garlic Sauce.

Off work and back home.

Talking with my mom on the phone – she's preparing to fly up here to spend some time with me and her uncle Kenny. Ana shows up in the middle of our conversation about how she discovered lemongrass and it's effectiveness on a rash she's been dealing with.

Downstairs, I whip up a coconut oil hand lotion using coconut oil, vitamin E oil, and Aloe Vera Witch Hazel.

Upstairs, I convince Ana to do a 15-minute oil pulling session with me using coconut oil where we simply swish it around in our mouths. I'm going to try this every day for a month and see the results.

Sleep at a decent hour.
