Happy Groundhog Day!  Here's what I've been up to, as of late...

I took my first test since college.  It was a surprisingly anxiety-inducing experience.

This is the best salad ever.  Really.  This is the best salad ever.  It got me through many painful grad school night classes, and I love it so much I never eat it -- I weirdly feel like it would spoil the specialness.  Ingredients? Arugula, strawberries, avocado, feta, olive oil and a little salt.  Mmmm!

My new cookbook convinced me that I should replace my ordinary sea salt with fleur de sel.  The verdict?  I don't particularly taste a difference, but sprinkling it on a meal does feel special. ...I can be such a sucker.

Leftovers from this dish lasted me for like two weeks.  Is that gross?

Houston had a few ice storms over the last week.  We also had some intermittently beautiful days.  This particular one was so beautiful (and mosquito-free!) that I left my door open.

Getting a new notebook feels like getting a little bit of Christmas. As part of the 40 Days we are doing a lot of journaling. I haven't been explicitly following the given prompts, but I am carrying this guy around with me and jotting in it as I feel the urge. It's even helped curb a few bouts of anxiety.

This wasn't an action shot -- that ball had come to rest.

Pretty sad the groundhog saw his shadow.  Happy week to you!
