Whimsical, Winsome Wednesdays: Edition X


logoBy Kathleen.

Alright, so my Wednesday has been a little less than winsome. In fact, it’s been kind of a roller coaster — okay, maybe not a roller coaster cause it’s not like anything terribly tragic happened, but there have been some up and downs…

a is for abysmal | Soon after I arrived at work, I learned some abysmal news. Apparently I had lost one of my earrings on my walk there. This may not seem like a big deal, but they’re the earrings that my sister recently gave me for graduation — and I LOVE them. So, fellow Washingtonians, if you stumble upon a random glistening gold dangle, please let me know.

b is for bubbly | I told you there had been some up and downs, right? Well, my morning actually started off quite well, as I went to an awesome yoga class and was then greeted by a fantastic food edition of the Post. As y’all know, next week’s Thanksgiving, so it’s somewhat predictable that the Post would publish a Thanksgiving-themed section. BUT the traditionally Turkey-filled day received a twist with an entire article and multiple published recipes on a vegetarian feast. Personally, I’m eyeing up the Sweet Potato Pie with Ethiopian spices.

c is for celestial | Though today’s been slightly erratic, this past weekend was absolutely lovely. I’d almost even call it celestial. My sister came to visit me in the District for the first time, and we did all things girly. On Saturday, we saw Sleeping Beauty at the Kennedy Center, which was stunning. Ever the ballerina, my sister wasn’t totally sold on the modern production, but I adored the set, scenery, and costumes. For me, it really was quite enchanting. On Sunday, we hit it up Yuppie style by going on a major shopping spree in Georgetown, followed by a scrumptious brunch at Farmers Fishers Bakers. Ohhh, and we also got to check out the coffee at Baked & Wired, which I’ve been dying to try ever since it won first place by readers. I’m not sure if I totally agree with the ruling, but my latte was certainly good. However, my allegiance goes to Vigilante, which my sister and I were able to try at District Flea on Saturday.
