Fridaaaaay!… Look This Way 57

I See You!

Wednesday’s image up close and personal.

Too personal?

I can’t stop looking at flower images this time of year. It won’t be long before I’ll be trolling the nurseries in desperation. Probably this afternoon.

True Confessions ~

Since it was the vernal equinox on Wednesday, I booked an impromptu mani. Snap.

45 minutes of conversation later, I walked out the door with Purple Palazzo Pants nails by OPI. Go ahead. Google it. You know you want to.

I’m upping my greens game.

Not the kind you wear, though I wear a few.

Not the kind you splash on walls, though I’ve been known to.

The kind you eat, ingest, consume.

The Big Kahuna of greens. Super greens. Power greens.

I haven’t died yet.

It all started with this book.

I found it on a table of remainders at the brick and mortar store for $8. Released in 2015, it’s still on trend. Everything looks so delicious, I could eat the images. And riddled with images it is.

I confess, mostly I eat spinach. Copious amounts of spinach. Because. Because, I like it!

Right now, I’m trolling the grocer looking for the freshest power greens. Taking them home. Trying them out. This week, the only thing that looked super fresh was Swiss chard and parsley. And by super fresh, I mean winter super fresh.

Yes, parsley is a power green. Who knew.

We’ll see how many power greens I can grow this year. I like to grow my own for pesticide control. And I’m hoping this book will show me how to prepare them in the yummiest of ways.

The downside of eating greens — you’re always having to check your teeth. Who else carries floss in their bag, backpack, pocket, whatevs?

And that’s my green little tale for Friday.

Who loves greens?

Happy weekend, y’all.

You know what to do. Meet you in the bar in 3…2…1… Eat your greens.

  1. It would be an OMG moment if I met you for the first time and you gave me a ‘come hither’ smile only to show a huge green whatever, covering one or two (humans have 8) incisor teeth. I would laugh so loud then turn and hi tail it in the other direction, fly by St. Catherine’s and get thru customs pronto (after declaring the bottle of single malt scotch from the duty free). Keep that floss handy. 🙀
