Sunrise

Here is a sunrise shot from one of our skylight windows.  I love sunrise.  My work schedule makes it hard to wake early and see it but whenever I have the urge, I go for it.

Celebration

One of the major things I thought about during our Cleanse was how deprived I felt and how much I wanted chocolate.  It didn’t help that I was listening to a book called; Candy Freak, at work; about a fellow who is obsessed with chocolate candy bars. His book explores the history of chocolate (quite fascinating). Throughout the book the main character (its a memoir  is biting into delicious chocolate bars that, the passionate chocolatier, who is in charge of… Read More »Celebration

CLEAN

  • by

So it is officially Spring and that means a time of change,cleaning, flowering open, getting ready for Summer….which is a whole different lifestyle.  No more hunkering over good books and hot cocoa and hot crock pot meals, break out the bikini, the flip flops the hat and get ready for sun and adventure and baseball and flowers and flowing water and green trees.  So to bring in the Spring season, Eli and I decided to do a three week cleanse.  Wow. Let me just say, three weeks has never gone by so slow! And….I’m not sure if I could have done it without Eli.

For the cleanse we had liquid breakfast (see blueberry,almond milk chocolate smoothie, surprisingly delicious) very healthy lunch and then liquid dinner, which at first were zuccini and butternut soups brought to work in our water bottles, until we were too grossed out to include dinner in our repitoire.  So the mornings consisted of a trip to the sunny whole Foods in our neighborhood.  While the world around us woke to baked muffins with blueberries and rich espresso drinks (at least this is what I imagined)  Eli and I were foraging the store for vegetables and asking lots of questions “what is a jicama?” “Whats the difference between shallots and green onions”, “Where do we find brown rice sweetner?”  “Where can we find a gluten free Tamari sauce?”  “Do you have coconut oil?” “Why is it solid? “……..ect. We leaped into the world of food and learned all about it.  And I must say, I am very glad I have NO special dietary needs (like, no dairy, or gluten) its practically a full time job.Read More »CLEAN

A Morning Hike

Celebrating….Springtime!  And that we can 🙂  We have to work at 3pm everyday, so we try to make the most of our days and then arrive to our cubicles exhausted….ready to sit for 7 hours.  This is SO hard for me! Here’s Eli, on top of the Mesa overlooking Golden.

First Moto trip of the year!

We stopped for a break at the confluence of the N.Platte and the S. Platte.  It was a gorgeous day and everyone was out enjoying the weather.  I was SOO happy to be out.  My bike felt great, which surprised me since I hadn’t really ridden it all winter.  Our new KLR was awesome!  Eli rode it most the day (though I don’t think he was as happy about it as I was) Before our trip out, we stopped in… Read More »First Moto trip of the year!
