Hellooooooo and Happy Monday! I hope you had a fantastic weekend. The weather here was summery and humid, and for the most part sunny, with a few wild thunderstorms thrown in there. I had a very random handful of experiences this weekend, many of them 'firsts'. Let's get into it.
The weekend started off with me grabbing some takeout sushi on Friday after work. The cherry on the top of that interaction was when the very sweet woman ringing me up asked if I needed chopsticks for one or two. 'Just one', I replied. Let it be known to anyone within earshot that not only am I single, but I also intend on single-handedly housing this entire order of sushi myself. And, End scene.
On Saturday morning, I woke up early to road-trip it from Baltimore to NJ for my very first meeting with a medium! It was a gorgeous sunny day and I could not have been more excited/nervous. Hi, ho, hi, ho, over the bridge we go:
I had no idea what to wear to this appointment. I felt like I was getting ready for a first date and must have tried on at least 6 different shirts! Hahaha. Even though I knew she would be reading me spiritually, I didn't want to give her the wrong impression of who I was based on my clothing?! I settled on cropped running tights, my "Respect the Poof" t-shirt, giant hair and no makeup. That is everything I am right there.
I'm not going to get into what went on during my session but I will say that I found it to be an emotional and somewhat therapeutic experience. It was not entirely what I was expecting, but then I really had no idea what to expect going in!
The appointment pretty much physically and emotionally drained me, and after making the return trip back to MD, I proceeded to pass out on my couch, only to be awoken hours later by booming thunderstorms.
Sunday was a sunny, humid day, which I spent outdoors at Loch Raven reservoir. The reservoir is huge and there are many different entrance points in northern Baltimore County. It offers hiking and walking trails, as well as boating and fishing entrances. Since I'm not currently training for any races, I am looking forward to spending more summer weekends hiking.
Afterward, my friend decided we should go for Snowballs, a Baltimore delicacy. I must admit, in my 11 years of living here, I had never once eaten a snowball...until yesterday. I mistakenly always assumed they were just like snow cones, which I ate as a kid growing up in PA, and do not really care for as an adult. Oh, I could not have been more wrong!
Unlike snow cones, the ice used for snowballs is shaved so finely so that it melts and completely absorbs the applied flavoring. Snow cones, on the other hand, usually end up as a giant block of ice, with the syrup completely separated at the bottom. As kid, I would simply drink the sugary liquid and discard all the ice! Super healthy. The liquid used in the snowball also wasn't as syrupy or as sweet as snow cone flavoring. I got cake batter and it tasted just like yellow cake. Of course, this momentous event had to be documented via photo:
And that there was my weekend in a nutshell! Even though the upcoming holiday weekend is usually the 'official' kickoff of the summer season, summer has most certainly arrived in Baltimore. Have a great week!
Tell me about your weekend!
Have you ever been to a medium? Or any kind of spiritual reader?
Have you ever heard of or had a Snowball?!
