it's a small world after all

I love Disney World :) always will, especially the Magic Kingdom. Gosh, I'm such a little kid :). Today I finally got to "see" my family using the glorious program that is Skype. I think I deserved a little keep in touch break after being such a diligent student this morning and early afternoon, don't you? Haha, well obviously I took one anyway and with their new computer we were able to chat face-to-face. Makes me not feel so far away. Sometimes I just love technology.
I would show you lunch but it's not worth it. I ate a tomato and avocado salad around 1 and then a piece of bread a few hours later. I don't know what was wrong with my stomach but it definitely was not in the mood to eat. So rare for me! Thank God I got my appetite back for dinner! We had lentil and rice soup and it was mmm, mmm, good! Lentils are probably just about my favoritest legume. Yes, I just said favoritest. Our comforting bowls of tasty goodness were followed by these salads. By the way, did I mention that today was unseasonably cold, rainy, dark and all around dreary? Well, that would be why we ate a winter soup in spring. My "mom" is so intuitive :) it's just what I wanted. I wasn't feeling the lettuce so I opted for a large serving of Ensalada de Apio. Crunchy. Now that I've been eating celery a lot more often than I used to I've found myself craving it. Couldn't have consciously come up with a better craving if I tried! It's super low in calories and super high in vitamin K and coumarins, compounds which "help prevent free radicals from damaging cells" and "enhance the activity of certain white blood cells." Hey, I'm all for strengthening my body's defense against cancer any day, especially if I get to enjoy it! While the powerful nutrients in that celery work their magic, I think it's time to catch up on this week's Gossip Girl. Have a great night ladies!
