A Few of My Favorite Things

Here, in no random order are a few things I’m enjoying these days:

1. Kindred the Family Soul’s latest album – “In This Life Together”. I am particularly feeling the track “Woman 1st” as it puts into words so well the struggle I go through on a daily basis to keep it all together – as a woman, as a wife, as a mother, as a daughter, as a sister, as a friend . . . you get my drift. Truly feeling this album. Music for grown folks.

2. Lorac gloss stick in Berry. Talked about it in a previous post – still loving it.

3. My hair. I am feeling particularly liberated from my hair and it is a wonderful feeling. I’ve still got it braided up – smaller cornrows this go ’round – and haven’t made up my mind what I’m going to do with it yet – cut it, big ‘fro it, twist it out or lock it up. Do you know what its like to walk into drizzling rain and enjoy feeling the rain on your face as opposed to freaking out ’cause your hair is going to be a mess?!? Simply wonderful. I should have done this a long time ago. Not that I had the confidence then. Even now it is a little unnerving to walk into a room full of mostly relaxed, sometimes pressed heads of flowing hair. But. I have finally realized that I will never – never – fit the standardized notion of beauty. So, I’m working with what I’ve got. Cantcha-dontcha hair and all.

4. Gardenburgers. The original. So good. Lovegirl and I eat them way more than I should admit to. I even caught Smoochy sneaking a taste of Lovegirl’s the other day – and he’s a straight meat and potatoes type fellow – I knew I’d get him to swing my way sooner or later! (Not down with the Boca Burgers at all. Soy trying to be beef? Not so much.)

5. Grey’s Anatomy. Sunday nights at 9, you can definitely catch me in the company of Meredith, McDreamy, and the rest of the crew. I particularly love Sandra Oh as Yang, Chandra Wilson as Dr. Bailey (and I don’t usually enjoy the angry, black woman roles) and Isaiah Washington as Burke (I’ve had a crush on him since “Love Jones”). Good TV.

6. Being in better physical shape. Not a 10 (yet) but definitely moving away from heart-attack-after-two-flights-of-stairs range. Maybe I’ll post a swimsuit pic one of these days. BIG maybe.

7. Pom brand pomegranate juice. Original and blueberry. Delish.
