When I finally did leave the house, after having some of the excellent pear-mango-ginger-blueberry crunch that miss_chance made for me last night (and it made a tasty and wonderful breakfast), I headed to Le Pli Day Spa for my post-conference birthday pampering. This was my first time ever at a spa, and, unsurprisingly, I liked it a lot. Next time, i think I'll skip the pedicure; it was nice, but it didn't do nearly as much for me as the facial and body wrap did. Now I smell all sea-y from the marine wrap. Also, I'm a tad salty. Don't ask why I know that.
I'll definitely go back! It was really fun and everyone was super nice.
I walked home afterwards, enjoying the sun and the air, and I started on a little creative project that I'm planning for myself for the next bit of time. I need more supplies for it, of course, so mostly I was sorting through ideas and preparatory gathering. eveandodd made me a delicious burger for dinner, and we watched Monsoon Wedding.
I got lots of sweet birthday wishes via email, lj and phone, and generally had a great, mellow, relaxing time.
