This is such a magical day. In the Northern Hemisphere, it is the day with the most daylight and marks the middle of the year. And, I got paid today! w00t!
So, I enjoyed the daylight and headed out to my favourite vintage shop in Palo Alto, Empire Vintage. I love guys shirts, often feeling more comfortable in them than shirts made for women. I found two (men’s) button down shirts for $5 each. Because of a buy one, get one half off deal, I also purchased two pairs of sunglasses. Overall, not too bad! Four items for $34! Pictures will be added soon, as I want to share my goodies with you.
I also headed over to Whole Foods, as I am dying to do a cleanse. I’ve heard great things about Kaeng Raeng, a vegan, gluten free, and stimulant free three and six day cleanse. Plus, it is a local product, born 3 miles away from where I live. Can’t beat that! The Whole Foods I went to offered only the three day beginner cleanse, which is totally fine. There are three different fruit based powders that you mix with water and consume each meal time. The instructions state that a first time cleanser can continue to eat raw foods (I’m guessing fruit & vegetables), which I think I’ll do this time around. If my body responds well to this, including my reaction to the taste, I hope to do this two or three times per year.
So, right now, I am going to eat a nice big salad and some mashed potatoes, as well as enjoy some iced tea. Then, I am going to try to venture up to Ocean Beach in San Francisco to enjoy the solstice sunset.
Peace, merriness, and joy to all of you!!
