Holy Basil Tea – My husband hates Pesto but loves fresh basil. He has a giant basil plant in our living room that makes our entire house smell disgusting. I love Pesto but as you may have guessed hate Basil.

I picked up this tea at a “health food” store. I did not notice it was Holy Basil, I just noticed the peach & raspberry. It’s pretty good though, doesn’t taste like basil.


Genius Playlist

My iPod Touch did a great Genius Playlist for me. It was an odd combination of songs but it worked perfectly for my tastes. For those of you not familiar with iTunes a Genius playlist is created by picking song and then iTunes finds other songs in your library to add to the list. This one was created by me picking Anna Sun. iTunes found 25 other songs to go with it.


Hanging With Friends

My hanging with Friends game has been broken for four days. Won’t open! I hope JustMartina doesn’t give up on me.


My wonderfully fabulous yoga teacher had to leave town due to a death in her family. She found a substitute yoga teacher for most of her practices. So Wednesday I went to yoga but I mistakenly went to the early (slightly slower) class.

Sonya was my teacher. Sonya is mostly blind! It was a very different experience. Well, anytime you switch yoga teachers it’s different. Everyone has their own habits and styles. She was also a very good teacher. She was a little more advanced than is normally done in that practice. This morning I went to my 9am practice with is the slightly more advanced class.

Even my fingers are stretched out. It was a good practice this morning. It wasn’t my Niki, but it was a nice 90 minutes.

  1. Basil tea. Haven’t tried that.

  2. You’ve peaked my interest.  Where do you find basil tea?  As far as a genious playlist, I will load my iPod and then tire of it, change it up, tire of it…goes on and on.  I don’t think I’ve ever achieved a genius playlist.Looking forward to hanging with friends next week!!

  3. I have a giant basil plant outside and I am on the “hates pesto but loves basil” list. Unfortunately, my basil will freeze in the fall, so I have to dry it. Yeah, I think that to have one inside would be a little overpowering.

  4. just brought our basil plant indoors for the winter and there is the faint smell of cat coming off it… it might not last the week much less the winter! 🙂

  5. @jerjonji – That’ what ours smells like to me.  Ick!

  6. @tracy – wait!!!! that’s the way it’s suppose to smell… ewwww!

  7. @jerjonji – Right? We’ve had ours in the house for about a month and every time my husband trims a leaf off that smell just spreads through the house.  

  8. Down by the Water by the Decemberists is one of my favorite songs ever!!Oh, and I hate pesto too, which causes much consternation for my Italian father. 

  9. @tracy – noooooo!!! I love cooking with fresh basil but I had no idea it smelled that bad! And here I was blaming the neighbor’s cat, Levi!

  10. @gottobereal64 – It’s an excellent song!

  11. I’ve never had pesto. I think I would be in the hates column for that but I love the smell of basil. I’m a fan of anything peach or raspberry so that tea looks interesting.When I saw the title Down by the Water, my brain started playing Down by the Rive by Neil Young, a favorite of mine. I hope you had a good weekend and that your guts are feeling better.

  12. I really with I could figure out how to bend like that!
