This weekend I was very excited, FINALLY, about our wonky "CSA" (that has been bringing us Cal-Organic produce with "Pete's Frootique" stickers stuck to them). We had local organic lettuce, parsnips, yam AND carrots!!! WOO! I was so excited, the lettuce looked YUM, really I couldn't wait to have salad.
So today, being Monday I was PUMPED to have salad. Yummy, local salad. Took out the salad....... and saw a little crawly caterpillar. Ok. I can handle that. Like I have said before, lettuce comes from the soil, that has worms. There were about three other little crawly caterpillars, also- I can handle them too! YES, I can handle THREE caterpillars. I thought perhaps I should inspect this magical local lettuce more closely... and saw dozens of tiny, almost indistinguishable green bugs crawling on EACH LEAF. Oh dear. No. Not every leaf??? My stomach turned. They had EGGS. I composted the entire head of romaine lettuce. I am so ashamed to say this- it was the most wasteful thing I have done in a long time (well other than drink starbucks this weekend, THAT was wasteful too). Sigh. No salad. And I am wasteful.
Confession numero deux: I punked out of yoga tonight. Since I was "sans" yoga all weekend, I was going to try the "hot" yoga class at BreathingSpace studio tonight. But I didn't. I just didn't feel like it. At the same time, I didn't feel like doing yoga because I was tired and annoyed about the bugs in my lettuce. It was probably for the best since I am not a fan of "hot" yoga in general. Perhaps what I should do is some yoga later on tonight at home. Some gear down, sleepy time yoga to help calm my nerves.
Confession numero trois: I am currently drinking a Guiness out of my McGill University mug. And I'm enjoying it.
