"Don't Eat the Green Ones, Their Not Ripe!"


Usually green means bad. Well, not today. All my life I have had a slight obsession with Green Leaf Cookies. I just don't care much for the Pink ones. I think other people do too because for some odd reason in the bakery I go to, there is ALWAYS like a hundred more Pink Leaf Cookies and barely any Green left at the end of the day. But luckily I snagged a couple tonight.

Has anyone ever tried these delicious leaf cookies? I'm not sure if they are a standard bakery item one would usually find in a bakery?!?!?!

Surprisingly I am actually in a good mood. I feel better and it did turn out to be just a cold. No more stomach flu. I just took it easy today. It's weird going back to work when you haven't been in over a week. My desk was still there, but I did panic when I couldn't log on to my computer for a moment. The work day went pretty well. I was missed & the guys(I work with 5 guys) were super nice to me about being back. My tummy hurts a little from sitting for 7.5 hours but it's doing okay. My incisions are healing, and before I know it they are going to be barely visible. *sigh of relief*


Today I also tried to not let my mind wander. You know how it is...the last person or the last thing you want to think about has that sneaky way of creeping into your thoughts when you least expect it. I tried my hardest to keep my head high & realize sometimes relationships are oceans...you can swim in an ocean but eventually you need to get back on the boat or come to shore. See I'm hoping for feelings to have been secretly held by someone & eventually those feelings will be shown if I stay around in the shadows of his life. But it's not going to be. He knows he can have me, but he obviously doesn't want me for whatever reason that it is unbeknown to me. This weekend was that sign that hit home. I'm fighting an ocean & I just can't win. The magic 8 ball answers of "Maybe" or "Rightfully so" are sometimes answering other questions in your head not the ones you've asked it. I have to get this into my head & make it stick.

For some reason I'm not numb but content. Maybe I freed myself from this glass cage that was cracking at every seam inside of me? Or...perhaps the contentment is the return of new dreams once again. That joy of a clean slate of new. Like my new cherry notebook. Or my good day at work, and the fact that is was Pay Day is fogging my senses. I don't know.

I guess this 8 ball answer is "Answer is unclear. Try Again."

I took it easy today, didn't do too much besides work and I felt much better. Lil Steps they do work. One day at a time.... I have an interesting post for tomorrow that I think might be enjoyable. Until then.

So happy you are feeling better. I really wish you well for beginning the rest of your life without this shadow. You will be open to other opportunities in life. Who knows what is around the corner.

I see those cookies in my local bakeries as well. Maybe people just think pink leaves are unnatural? Lol! Makes you wonder why they make the pink ones at all.
Glad you are starting to feel better. Keep chugging along - everybody goes through those rough patches, but that's what makes the smooth ones so good, right? You have to have the balance to know when things are good.

Glad you got to get out in your costume for a bit! It was super cute!

I don't think I have had green leaf cookies but I've seen them before. I am a sucker for Milanos :)

I've never had those, but they look delicious! Glad your starting to feel a little better, just keep that head up. Some things are so hard to walk away from, but you'll look back and thank god that they didn't work out. it only means there are even better opportunities before you, waiting to be uncovered!

I have never had a greenleaf cookie but now I desperately want one. They look GOOD! Lol. Hmm...I wonder if there is a recipe out there somwhere...

I'm sorry life has been so frustrating b/c of HIM. :( I was just thinking this morning how much I hate relationships b/c they just complicate life more than make it better. My ex just started dating this new gorgeous girl (first gf since me). And even though I'm with the love of my life right now, the news hit me like a sock to the gut. You really never get over people and it sucks. Grrr. :(

hi there lil cookie!
sorry i've missed few of your posts...but i'm back with a computer that will hopefully last me more than 3 weeks...
i'm glad to hear/read you're doing good. but most of all i'm glad that you have started the liberating process of getting your heart and freedom back. it's a bit of a long way and sometimes you want to be weak, like me last night..., but hang on there, seak for some soothing words from friends...it helps a lot!
just know you're not alone...
lot of hugs!

Those cookies look delicious. I've never had any of those before.

I have never seen cookies like that in my life! And I am surprised people prefer the green ones.. I would go for the other ones myself! ;O)
About the guy... guys are silly... the only way he will wake up will be when he will realize he's loosing you in the hands of some other guy... but maybe by then it will be too late... maybe you will have eyes just for the new comer... life is that complicated! who knows??? ;O)
Big kisses for ya girlie!
