Crystals

Charging crystals to keep in my purse
Charging crystals to keep in my purse

I’m recently new to the world of crystals and am already addicted, like I need another hobby. I haven’t found my favorite place to buy them locally (above is a place in NY). I’ve been to Avalon and Ancient Artifacts on Fairbanks, and purchased on Etsy. I’d like to find *one* place to buy them where I know I’m getting good quality stones at good prices. There is a mineral, gem, bead, and fossil show coming up in April in Orlando I plan on attending.

Gratitude Coffee Truck

My coffee situation drastically changed this week, hopefully permanently. After the whole caffeine overdose scare, I went off coffee cold turkey then eventually promised I would have just 1 (one!) just one “cup” per day. This ended up being an iced Americano from Starbucks every morning before work that got boring real quick.

Decided to finally try the Gratitude Coffee truck that parks at a flower shop on the corner of Formosa and Par from 7am to 3:30pm during the week. I’ve only ever had the cold brew with cream, sugar, and a tad of vanilla and it. is. magical. I dream of it before I go to bed and the whole experience gives my whole day a positive vibe. It’s the smoothest, more flavorful coffee I’ve ever had. It’s really quite different than others and I’m so thankful that it’s so close to my work.

Got my hands on this whimsical Madeline Tosh yarn in the sold out Holi Festival color. Not sure what I will do with it yet, but I’m thinking a hat.

Last weekend, I stupidly tried to go to Valhalla Bakery in Orlando at 1:45pm for these so-called legendary donuts.  Apparently you have to get there on the early side to get them or they sell out. I’m willing to do crazy things for a good donut. So this Saturday, I literally threw my glasses and flip flops on and drove there on no coffee in my pajamas. I arrived around 8:45am to a line of about 4 people that quickly accumulated behind me. I got a half dozen of these monsters and they were well worth the mission. Thick, meaty, perfectly sweet. They remind me of the one I got at a cart called Dough at the Brooklyn Flea. I will be back my friends.
