With What I Give You
So live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart. Trouble no one about their religion; respect others in their view, and demand that they respect yours. Love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life. Seek to make your life long and its purpose in the service of your people. Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great divide. Always give a word or a sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend, even a stranger, when in a lonely place. Show respect to all people and grovel to none. When you arise in the morning give thanks for the food and for the joy of living. If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies only in yourself. Abuse no one and no thing, for abuse turns the wise ones to foolsand robs the spirit of its vision. When it comes your time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song and die like a hero going home.
Isn't it a good one? Definitely worth framing and reading every day, one of those little reminders that keep you human and keep you grateful. :)
James and I had a fun day meandering around Decatur and the Oakhurst neighborhood. Any reason to wear his new shoes out and about ... He finally caved and bought a pair of the Reebok Nano 2.0's.
He's been on leave for the last 2 week, and it's been really nice having him home. I didn't realize how much I was missing him. He works such long hours Recruiting, there were days we'd say little more than Good Morning and Good Night to each other ...
We started out the day with brunch at Good Karma Coffee, a really cool gluten, soy and dairy free bakery and cafe just a few miles from our house!
I had this amazing g-free blueberry waffle and a side of organic turkey sausage.
Next on our list was Taj Mahound, a bakery specializing in treats just for dogs. <3
We meandered a little more around the neighborhood, checked out some of the local shops, and were directed (by some clever chalk art) to stop into Mojo Pizza and Pub for lunch.
Their servers were great! He accidentally brought us out two pints of beer, when the Husband had just ordered himself the one. He let us keep it anyways. Hey, who doesn't love free burrr!
We tried the Blue Moon Agave Nectar Lager. DH ordered it because he's obsessed with agave all the sudden (since having it on his blueberry waffles this morning at the coffee house).
I enjoyed a side Greek salad while my husband devoured his
slice of pizza.
Oh yeah, don't worry, I tried a few bites - it was amazing.
Creamy, spicy black bean sauce, topped with green chile and lime marinated chicken breast and our unique spicy and sweet peppadew peppers. -Mojo Pizza
And, our last stop, because I made this pouty face until my husband said yes (I was rolling his pizza-filled behind home at this point) ...
... a super cool, little bakery called Sugar Moon, filled with all things Heavenly. We resisted the cupcakes, the pies, the tarts, the almond bark, the chocolate covered pretzels, and settled on a Reese's Peanut Butter Cookie instead.
Even the puppy got his fat boy on! He loved the dog doughnut from Taj Mahound. I was such a proud dog mamma to see him eat his doughnut just like I do - frosting first!

I'm back in the gym on the 29th! Until then, it's just lots of long walks with my furturd and light house cleaning keeping me busy.
Cupcakes or Cookies?
Cupcakes, I'm all about the frosting!
Does your signifiant other have the same eating habits as you? How do you deal with it if you don't?
