Hi friends, how are you?
I missed yoga class today.
I’ve been looking forward to my yoga practice all week, but I ended up not going yesterday, because the little guy got his 4-month shots the day before and was still a little grumpy. And today I didn’t feel to good. I’ve been dizzy this morning (and still am…) and decided it’s probably best not to do any downward facing dogs, in favour of my spinning head, so I canceled today’s class.
When I realized at some point that I was starving and we had no food at home (well, nothing that can be thrown together in a jiffy…), I got dressed and bundled the little guy up in his stroller to go out and get some fresh air (I thought it would help with the dizziness – and it did for a while) and some food.
We walked to our local grocery store to pick up a couple of things and then decided to try out the bakery across the street from the store. BJ Bakery is quite small, but they have some delicious looking cakes and pastries, as well as bread. I got a cappuccino (they use organic coffee!) and the lady gave me a slice of date and walnut cake to try, since I told her it was my first visit .
There is also a small selection of Eastern European (I think Polish) foods. I don’t know why I never tried it, because I’ve been living in this area for three years now.
Anyway, I’m back home, the little guy is napping and I’m still starving. Time for one of those frozen burritos (I find them delicious and disgusting at the same time)…
… and some catching up on the blog world. One of my favourite fitness/health bloggers, the Fitnessista, just had her baby girl and there seems to be a blog-world baby fever going on right now, because I just realized how many of the girls, whose fitness/health/food blogs I’m reading, either had a baby in the last while or are currently pregnant (there’s Caitlin from Healthy Tipping Point, Heather from Heather’s Dish, and Sabrina from RhodeyGirlTests, just to name a few). And then there’s me, too.
Question for you: Have you ever discovered new local spots after living somewhere for a while? Do you usually stick to places you know or do you try and check out new spots? I usually give most places that are new to me a try, which is why I’m wondering why it never occurred to me to try this neighbourhood bakery. I guess I never spent too much time in my neighbourhood before having the little guy.
Alright, gotta finish my food, before my son wakes up!
