Sometimes You Need to Sleep In
Well, it’s true. Even the city girl needs a little extra beauty rest sometimes. So, she indulged and slept in. Bliss!
After she woke for the day, the city girl primped for a chat date with a lovely friend of hers. Where did they meet and chat? Peace, Love, and Rocky Roast. It’s the new-ish coffee and gelato shop on Gervais Street. It is in the same building as Garden Bistro. Wonderful! Two of her favorite places in one spot.
First, let the city girl share her thoughts on Peace, Love, and Rocky Roast. She first experienced this darling place with the teenage girl she mentions in this post. She played it safe, or so she thought. What really happened was the beginning of onset addiction. That day, as you may recall, she ordered a blood orange gelato shake. The rest is history.
On this particular trip, the city girl and her friend ordered another flavor of gelato. They both got the same thing – cookies and cream. Sometimes, you gotta go with what you love. And they did. While enjoying their gelato, they managed to get in some conversation – some about business, some about life, and some about their famously hot city. You know what else they talked about? The awesome interior of their fave new gelato snack house. See for yourself.
Once the girls were finished chatting, the city girl headed home. She had chores to which she needed to attend. You might say what a drag! But, they city girl loves to vacuum. In fact, she does it everyday, unless she is out of town. Full disclosure: she even vacuums for her neighbors on occasion. Yes, she knows this isn’t normal.
She isn’t entirely sure where her love of vacuuming began because her mother vehemently dislikes the chore. Maybe that’s why though, hmmmm. Anyhow, when she bought her house a few years ago, she bought herself a housewarming present… A Dyson DC25 Animal. She love love loves it! In fact, it’s probably her most prized possession. It’s part of the reason she vacuums for her neighbors; she won’t let anyone else touch it. Full disclosure: she also knows this isn’t normal.
Anyhow, vacuuming is a bit like therapy for the city girl. Few things please her more than a clean house, so she vacuums daily for a dose of happiness. In addition to being the most awesome cleaning tool ever, her prized Dyson is purple, her favorite color. See for yourself.
Don’t mind the bits of dryer duct scattered about the floor. The city girl had just finished replacing a dangerous plastic version when this photo was snapped. You might not get as excited about this fine piece of engineering as the city girl does, but rest assured it one frickin’ awesome vacuum.
As some of you may know, there’s more to her vacuuming, but she will omit that from this post. Until the next adventure.
