This morning was glorious! I woke up without my alarm, it was bright and super sunny and considering the fact that it was Monday, I was exceptionally happy. Spring is going to be here before we know it and summer too. I am SO excited. It just occured to me today that the reason I was so ridiculously excited about the morning sun was not so much because I am totally sick of winter at this point (really, either snow and give me a snow day or go away winter!!),but because of my adventures in Scotland this summer, I kind of missed out on the sun. Because while Scotland is AMAZING (OMG I Love it there!!!)...it's not exactly the sunniest place in the world. So I am uber excited for this summer, no matter what I'm doing. I'm making plans with my sister to finally go to the Philadelphia Folk Festival -the mythic and legendary place where my parents met.
Also, a week after posting my essay on the correlation between going vegetarian/vegan and global warming, there is a mention in the latest issue of Veg News which came in the mail today of Sir Paul McCartney has paired himself up with a Nobel Prize winning scientist to spread the message that going vegetarian can have a HUGE impact on global warming, and that by eating less meat, you are decreasing your carbon footprint on the earth. So that was pretty cool!
Sir Paul McCartney, Super Vegetarian!
And now I need to GUSH! OMG! I discovered these vegan donuts at Nature's Harvest made by nutrilicious check out their website www.nutrilicious.com. They are HEAVEN! I seriously cannot remember being so happy after eating a desert-like-thing in years. They are naturally sweetened with fruit juice (you would never know) and completely vegan. And to anyone who isn't a vegan-I'm almost sure you would love it too, and it's such a better, healthier and more positive choice than that which shall not be named but supposedly is the thing America runs on, cough cough-DD.
And last but not least I'm making a few changes to the first thirty pages of my manuscript and sending it off tomorrow for a mentoring workshop in New Jersey. I'm several more pages into chapter three's revision. This week is supremely less hectic than last week-so I'm expecting to get through chapter four as well, and hopefully chapter five before the weekend is up. Fingers crossed!
