Reading: I’m ten chapters into The Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman and I’m hooked! Yesterday instead of working out on lunch, I decided to snuggle up on a comfy cushion and read for the hour. It was an easy decision to make because of the gloomy weather. So far its about a lightkeeper who lives on an island, alone with his wife and they just found a baby that washed up to shore… without give much away, I’m predicting that they keep it and later on the story will unfold… and I can’t wait to find out how! This was a spontaneous choice at the library and I’m happy that so far, so good.
Watching: I actually haven’t watched anything online via Hulu or Netflix in over two weeks that’s how busy I’ve been.
Loving: my Flower Scout CSA! The bouquet above is the one that I picked up last night from Colie and I chose this particular one because of the pale ranunculus; the color is so delicate. The lilacs smell ah-mazing and I love the mixture of textures. I’m also loving “Step” by Vampire Weekend, and can’t wait to hear the entire album; the beau bought it today. Hello new dance party music.
Wondering: has Jessica Garrity ever been confronted by the drunk in a wheelchair at a stop light? I would pay to see that reaction/response. WWJGD?
Looking forward to: the Corporate Challenge tonight! This is the biggest race that I participate in each year and the only reason why I put up with all those people (like 10,ooo people) is because it’s a little work tradition that I’ve got going on with a co-worker. We don’t aim to PR, we just like to get out there to run 3.5 miles with our community. This will be my first race since the Boston Marathon and I can’t wait to feel the energy of the crowd. Can’t slow this gal down.
Thinking about: the new work I’ll be starting next week. Tomorrow is my last shift at the frozen yogurt shop so that I’d have more time to commit to… drum roll please… Troy Cloth and Paper! This is hopefully going to be what the beau and his business partner need to propel them forward and free up some of their time from work that I’d be so much more efficient doing. This is officially phase one of bringing me on full-time, slowly but surely.
Eating: This is horrible but I haven’t had any of my veggies from last week’s share… we’ve been eating out almost every meal. Yes, I did have two salads this week and yes, I did eat all of the apples but I did also have a lot of cookie butter and brown rice noodles. Which leads into the next topic…
Planning: a cooking spree this weekend! Those portabella mushrooms are screaming my name, as is a soup, cold farro salad and possibly a cold lentil salad. The Placid Baker recently had a cold lentil salad that was sweet with cranberries, red onions and parsley- so good that I’m going to try and recreate it. With all this eating out, I’m craving a simple home cooked meal. All of my meals have been healthy choices except for the french fries at 1am- yes, those aren’t healthy but necessary with a crazy schedule sometimes.
