Zucchini Sesame Salad

Truly thought today was Thursday, first time. And in the perfection of things, the propane gas needed re-filling, so I called a taxi, whch took 20 minutes. Then I decided to go in to town since it was a 50 cent ride. Very relaxed, I got to the Juice Factory, took several precious minutes talking to a few ne’er-do-wells, at which time I noticed the walking group was there , and Franco Organico was there. Those two are only there on Fridays. Yikes! “Is it Friday:” I asked the group? “Yes!” was the resounding answer. I looked at my phone – 9:57, and walked quickly over to teach yoga at 10:00. In my jeans, but luckily they were baggy. Whew! I don’t like that! How did I lose a day? But thanks to the perfection of everything getting me there on time, wow.
