Yesterday I played it pretty low key and relaxed most of the day away in the air conditioning. I usually only turn it on for an hour during the week but Ben had it on half the day because of the heat wave!
I finally headed out for errands around 4pm and made a stop at Whole Foods to refill my precious Bragg’s liquid aminos and got dinner.
I grabbed a chocolate chip cookie from the bakery case for dessert. I know I’ve tried their vegan cookies, but couldn’t remember when was the last time I had the “Amazing Chocolate Chip Cookie” as they label it.
The Best Chocolate Chip Cookie Criteria:
One a scale from 1 to 5
Presentation: 3 – Plastic baggie, self serve. Shouldn’t whole foods have some organic hippie bag that actually makes the Earth better when you bury it?
Size: 5 – Perfect!
Amount of Chips: 3 – It looked like it had a good amount, but a few bites had zero chips, not okay.
Overall Taste: 3.5 – Good, but something was missing from it. I’m not sure if it was too buttery or not sweet enough or what, but I wasn’t in love.
Other: Loved the size and thickness from the appearance so my expectations were somewhat high. Ended up being just okay. I wouldn’t get it again, there are a lot of other pastries in that case that were calling me and are probably better than this one.
I started falling asleep around 9:30pm and hit the sack. Then, around 11pm Ben was rustling around and woke me up. I forgot he wanted to go see the Meteor Shower. We got up and drove out to a local campsite to check it out.
It was the Perseid Meteor Shower <- you can read science stuff there.
We got to the camp site, parked and leaned up against the car for an hour watching for shooting stars. I saw about 4 of them!!!
We got home around 1am and I was wide awake?!$@>@ Boo. I had a bowl of cereal and watched Locked up Raw (the only non-infomercial option!) until I felt like I as was ready to sleep.
I wanted to sleep in, but my body clock still has me up and blogging at 7:30am. Not sure what’s on tap for today…
Question: Can you see stars in the night sky from where you live? Have you ever seen a shooting star?
