Health And Wellness

I ate shrimp and rice for dinner the night before last. Afterwards, I drunk one or two full cups of ice-cold apple juice.

When I cook that particular meal it always comes out delicious and filling. I’ve bought and fixed shrimp quite a few times lately. It had been a while since I’ve eaten shrimp.

I don’t have a problem finding the product on the shelf. They are a little expensive compared to the other items of seafood stocked in the local supermarket, and certain people aren’t too eager to purchase these particular quality of shrimps on account of the price, even though they are worth the money.

As I sit here in my living room I decide what to prepare for dinner tonight and at the same time I have a memory enter into my mind.

The thought reflected on one of the wealthy clients I worked with for a few months a few years ago. She was a retired business attorney who practiced law for nearly 20 years at Home Box Office, specializing in satellite transactions and international partnerships with movie studios and cable companies to bring HBO abroad.

Anyway, one day we took a cab from her million-dollar rented apartment that she came to eventually own, situated in Manhattan, NY to her hair-salon that was located on the second floor of a fancy building.

While I waited for my client to get her hair colored, washed, blow-dried, and styled I killed time by going down to one of the first floor restaurants to order me some food to take back to her apartment.

I was staying at her home for nearly the entire week straight-working a double and extended day shift. Usually I’d do four days a week overnight with her, but her day caregiver was temporarily off schedule, and I covered her shifts as well as mine.

There inside the restaurant I ordered shrimp with french fries, a side of vegetables, two packages of mixed fruit, and a vegan smoothie.

I placed my order for take out; the order summed up to a little over fifty dollars.

I saved all of my food to eat later that night except for the smoothie, and one of the packages of fruit.

I sat at one of the restaurant tables and ate my delicious fruit while I sipped on my green-colored smoothie that was made purely of vegetables, fruit, and spices.

Aside from having juiced raw fruit and vegetables in my juicer years ago, I had never tasted one of these modern-day smoothies that are usually made with dairy yogurt or whatever else.

I was surprised at how very good the smoothie that I had tasted, considering the combination of the raw vegetables mixed in together. I can’t remember the entire ingredient list but the beverage did contain spinach, carrots, apples, celery and a few other nutritious edibles along with lemon and spice.

 

Mother’s Day/My Birthday

My birthday fell on Mother’s day this year as I turned forty-three last Sunday and I spent the day at the movies with my mother since she planned earlier within that week for us to go see the thriller “Breaking In” starring Gabrielle Union.

The film was of very good quality with plenty of action, fantastic movie!

 

Avengers:Infinity War

It’s after one in the morning and I just got back from the movies.

I wanted to see one of the early evening premiere showings around seven, however, they were all sold out.

One theater was sold out for the entire weekend fortunately I was able to order in advance for a later showing tonight and the Avengers was really good, so full of action and great special effects, I especially loved the scenes of the fictional place in Wakanda where some of the Black Panther characters reprised their roles and collaborated/joined in battle with the other super heroes.

The entire film and cast did wonderful, Robert Downey Jr. looked good, I liked spiderman’s scenes along with the Captain America crew and much more.

The beginning of the film is entertaining as well, loved the scenes that was referred to as New York location they started off with action and such creative talent and imagination.

 

 

 

Acrimony/Black Panther

I just got home I’ve been gone all day as soon as I got off work earlier I came to get my mother and we both went to the movie theater.

First we saw Tyler Perry’s Acrimony which was very good and entertaining it was full of thrill and suspense then right after as I bought the movie tickets in advance we went in to see Black Panther which was fantastic and action packed! It was well worth all of the hype and praise!

We had such a lovely time and so much fun both movies were totally awesome!

Today Was Fantastic!

popcornI just got back home not too long ago I’ve been gone all day long and I had such a wonderful day! The weather was beautiful.

I left home at around eleven this morning, went to a restaurant and had jumbo fried shrimp and fried chicken tenders with french fries for lunch along with a relative, then we headed to see “The Jungle Book” movie.

It was such an adorable action packed film that all of us audience members watched and enjoyed in 3D which made the movie even more exciting to view. It was so cute, a really great film.

Right after, as I had already bought the movie tickets in advance my relative and I went to see “Barber Shop 3” and that was a good movie too but not as good as Jungle Book in my opinion.

After seeing the two films I did some grocery shopping, took a cab home, and now I am going to just lay back and chill out for the rest of the night.

To top it all off I woke up this morning feeling so good with the natural energy that was around me and that was cradling me with acknowledgement and confirmation of a life well deserved. The universe continues to send and deliver to me the most positive of vibrations.

Beautiful Darlings! And A Sweet Reminisce

Little sheltie (shetland sheepdog) so darn cute!!! I could just eat up this pooch!baby collie

The collie family is one of the most beautiful breed of dog that is within existence.

Anyway, I had a great weekend I laughed so hard watching some of my favorite comedy movies.

Last week during my off days besides going out to the mall to get some delicious take out and aside from taking care of some business I watched some good action flicks including the Al Pacino classic “Scarface” which, to me, never gets old, I remember how my mother and I sat for six whole hours inside the movie theater watching that three hour movie twice when I was a kid (I was about eight or nine years old), in fact, none of the audience members got up to leave there everyone present had remained within their seats to catch another viewing of the film.

Back then the movie theaters use to play double features and audience members were also allowed to stay and watch the movies again without paying an extra movie ticket fee so we actually was in that theater for about seven hours and over thirty minutes because there was another picture that was also playing while we waited to see Scarface, and it was a boring movie I remember, but it was worth sitting through, those were the good ole days. Scarface really rocked in the early eighties and it still rocks now till this day it is completely superb!

Bright Lights, Big City!

Ever since i was a little girl i loved when my mother use to take me with her into Manhattan. Then when i got old enough to travel on my own i’d take the train and go all of the time.

I’ve always been so carefree. I just loved everything about Manhattan. I always said when i could i would move there because Manhattan says everything about me!

On the 20th of april of this year i had to take care of some business on 34th st and i hadn’t been down there in that part for a while so when i finished what i had to do i walked all over and around, and spent hours enjoying the scenery. I ate around 42nd street then visited some stores, went and bought a DVD, then went on home.

A beautiful place somewhere in Manhattan will be my home one day.
