It's the good life

I made a gianduja cake--involving six eggs, six ounces of unsweetened chocolate, a cube of butter, a bit of sugar, lots of ground hazelnuts, and only a couple tablespoons of flour--for my mom's birthday today. I've just come home from that celebration, where I indulged in a slim slice of this bitter, decadent goodness.

It's wonderful and powerful to know that I can have just one. Something about de-cluttering my house makes me less interested in cluttering my tummy.

Now I'm sitting in a warm bath liberally laced with soothing magnesium sulfate and scented with frankincense and grapeftuit (a seriously gorgeous fragrance combination). I'm about to watch an episode of Torchwood.

*waves at everyone*

This is the life. If you have to say goodbye to the weekend, this is a very good way to do it.

The only trouble is all that magnesium in the bathwater acts as a tranquilizer, and I've oeverslept this morning!

Oh, it was. Antioxidants and protein galore.

I can hear your sigh from here! Nothing ends a weekend like a warm bath with wonderful smells around you. Glad you enjoyed!

That magnesium oil I use is VERY tranquilizing! I was spraying it liberally on myself during my bath (which also featured Epsom salts), and honestly, I'm still sleepy today! Slept like a rock, though. Always a good thing.
