Waking up at 10:15 a.m.
Steel Cut Oatmeal with Cinnamon, Maple Syrup, Raisins, and Kefir. Yerba Mate Tea.
Teaching a lesson.
Meeting with John from Mass Mutual to discuss upping the monthly payment into my Roth IRA account.
Scrambled Eggs. Bagel with Non-Dairy Cream Cheese. Corn Tortilla Chips with Avocado and Tomato. Oolong Tea.
Watching Trophy Kids (2016).
Teaching an in-home lesson out off Lynnhaven.
Checking out a thrift store the way back to Hilltop.
Coaching the last rock school session for our kid/teen band. Drew is present instead of Jimmy – he's pushing them right on through the set multiple times keeping them alert and thinking ahead. It's tough on them cause they just learned two new songs last time but they manage to get through it and it looks like they're having fun.
At the Rec exercising and playing a few pick-up basketball games.
Corralling my mom and Ana to Nawab, a local Indian cuisin restaurant down the street. Ana and I ate here on her birthday. We had to come back and experience the fresh variety of flavors.
Chicken with Mango and Ginger. Eggplant and Kale. Garlic Naan Bread. Samosas. Basmati Rice.
My mom makes an observation about our lives, something that is relevant to me especially. "Your daily life can consume you if you let it," she says.
Time just keeps flying and before you know it you're aging into oblivion.
Back home. Enjoying a couple Donuts Ana bought from My Vegan Sweet Tooth.
Tucking Ana into bed...
"Give me kiss," she pleads.
"Do you want an organic one or an all natural?" I ask.
"Organic. But I guess it won't be cause I asked you to."
Peach Tea. Navel Orange.
Sleep 3:30 a.m.
