Afternoon Off

I finally had an appointment to get my hair colored yesterday afternoon so I took that as an opportunity to treat myself to an afternoon off.  The hair salon I go to is right in the heart of Milwaukee's Third Ward, a great downtown neighborhood made up mostly of lofts and condos, tons of restaurants, little shops, art galleries and home to the Milwaukee Public Market.  So, I hit up the build your own pita place in the market and then headed back outside to enjoy my Mighty Goat pita, (spinach spread, goat cheese, red onions and tomato) a good book and some sunshine.

I fell in love with Margaret Atwood after reading the Handmaid's Tale and have in the years since read almost all of her books.  Right now I'm reading Wilderness Tips which is a collection of short stories. 

Unfortunately, even before I could finish my pita, rain clouds rolled in and so I had to head back inside.  I choose to console myself with coffee and a tiramisu cup.  

Although it was a wonderful treat, it's something I seriously need to start cutting back on.  The treats, not the afternoons off.  Since having Sean Patrick, I've lost all my baby weight and started gaining it all right back, except this time, without having a pregnancy to blame it on.  If I don't get things under control real soon I won't be able to fit into any of my clothes when it's time to head back to the office!  What's that saying, I'll start Monday?
