Evidence

So…I am not a lawyer by any means, but I like to think I know a little something about evidence.

More specifically, evidence that proves I am a 70-year-old lady at heart.

Order in the court, order in the court!

I call The Healthy Everythingtarian to the stand to make her case…

First things first judge, you know a lady is old when the winter weather is shaking her osteoporotic bones.  Okay, so maybe I don’t have osteoporosis, but when it goes from 50 to 30 degrees with snow overnight, I would rather be inside quilting and watching The Young and the Restless.

E-mailing, Twittering, Facebooking, IMing, GChatting, texting…I much prefer the way they did in the olden days.  A good ol’ handwritten letter via the Pony Express US Postal Service…

Thank you Bekah for the amazing goods – coconut chia granola, pumpkin chocolate chip cookies and cumin/cinnamon/maple-scented almonds! Did I mention she is fabulous and going to the C.I.A.?

Back to the trial…and what 70-year-old doesn’t like smooshy baby food?

I like it.  A lot.  A lot, a lot.

1/3 cup oats
2/3 cup water
pinch of salt
1/3 cup canned pumpkin
drizzle of agave
cinnamon, nutmeg + ginger
1 spoonful almond butter
sprinkle of dried cranberries
1 crumbled choco pumpkin cookie

Tasty.

I forgot to mention I was up at 8am on a Saturday.  That may not solidify 70-year-old status, but it definitely helps the case, no?

In addition, I spent the day working.  Although I am a 70-year-old at heart judge, I am still trapped in a 24-year-old body, which means I still have to clean, freelance writing, drink coffee like its my job, catch up on People and eat some more (my metabolism hasn’t slowed down that much yet)…

Yes my dear Erica, that would finally be some Easy Vegan Chili!  Check out that recipe yo dears.

After lunch, I had the requisite 2nd cup of tea for the day while packing my 2nd lunch, to be consumed at my part-time job…

Judge, how can a 70-year-old lady bear to do anything more after she has been on her feet for four hours?  It took all my 24-year-old energy (whatever is left of it) to haul ace to the gym to complete a workout.

Yes, I may have done 80 minutes on the treadmill (60 minutes of 5-minute alternating intervals of walking + running, followed by a 20 minute cooldown walk), but that was only because the Hallmark Channel was playing “Mrs. Miracle,” starring my friend Doris Roberts.  How can an old lady resist a good seasonal romantic movie?  She can’t.  I can’t.

When I got home, I wanted breakfast for dinner…Perkins-style.

That would be a lovely breakfast burrito made with: 1 Sunshine Breakfast patty, 2 eggs, 1/2 cup peppers, salt + sprouted wheat tortilla.  Twas’ delicious.

Judge’s verdict? Guilty…on all charges!

I sentence you to a 3rd cup of tea, nice hot bath and 10:30pm bedtime.  You’ve had quite enough excitement for one day.
