In recent news

I went away to a spa in a 4 star hotel this weekend. In Saint-Malo.

It was the most sensual weekend I've ever had that didn't involve sex. Which is exactly what I needed after my recent ass-kicking.

I got massages and salt water spa treaments and I ate foie gras and lamb and 3 kinds of sorbet and stared out at the sea from my window for hours.

Things I learned this weekend?

I like 4 star hotels.

Spas are nice.

Mango sorbet is more appealing as an idea than as an actual sorbet.

That sounds lovely! Are you well rested? Have you ever put mango in salads with pine nuts and avacado - it's quite good when served with a light dressing (I suggest fresh butter lettuce).

That reminds me...someone gave me a certificate to Ummalina for my birthday...

Nicole said...

christina - Oh, it was.

Beth - I don't get much fresh mango around here. You've been living in California for too long - you've forgotten how the rest of us live.

Nicole - Me too!

Julie - It really was heavenly.

Lorraine - Nope, it was for the Child's birth.

No, no...you gave me one for The Child's birth, which I redeemed when she was 1. Payson gave me one for my 50th. You inspire me to use it before I'm 51.
