Little Things Lately ...

Jubilant// That one amazing morning before work, the stars aligned and I had a breakfast worthy of a bougie television show. Complete with coffee. And sitting at my kitchen table. Crunching on avocado toast. While reading a magazine. It lasted about 12 minutes, but oh was it glorious. I have no idea what drove me to be up at 5 am and fit in a full workout, dog walk and leisure time all south of 7AM but I will take it.

Really enjoyed // The documentary "Twinsters" that I watched on Netflix this weekend. It's about two South Korean identical twins who were split apart at birth and found each other in their twenties. One girl had been born and raised in California, the other in France. It was touching, fascinating and really well done. Definitely worth a watch. Basically "The Parent Trap" live action reel.

Sundaying// on my bike more and more. On this day (when I dressed like Alex Mack), we left our house and I followed Jay and Chandler on one of their many runs on my bike. The wind was blowing but the skies were blue and the views were astronomical.

Listening to // The Weeknd. I've known who he was forever now but I've never actually taken the time to listen to him. That changed two weekends ago and it's been a lot of soulful crooning in my house ever since. Typing his name is a complete and utter nightmare with auto-correct, but I'm willing to embark on that quest. He's that good.

Relaxing// At a massage appointment in my neighborhood. Well, relaxing in theory. My back is always so pent-up with stress (that I don't realize until they start working it), that massages kind of are a little bit of a beating. Lil' painful on the table, lotta' relief thereafter.

Teary-Eyed // whenever I look at the Wall Street "Fearless Girl" statue. That thing legit makes my eyes well-up with pride. So much love for all that she stands for.

Experimenting// with new recipes. This one was a whole chicken baked in a bundt cake with potatoes, carrots, rosemary & bell peppers beneath. It was realllllly good and the clean-up was easy-peasy.

Totally over // Junk mail. Like really - how are they allowed to continue to send so much garbage? I swear that every time I open my mailbox, it just vomits out 700 leaflets containing coupons for stores that aren't even nearby or fliers that don't even have coupons. Just 8,745 pages of what is available in the store with no added relevancy from these mailings. Thanks for informing me on what a grocery store contains. #PleaseStop

Couldn't agree with you more on junk mail - ugh! And love your breakfast time at home. It's so relaxing, and really helps start the day on a better note. I'm always so rushed in the mornings because sleep always wins. One of these days, I'll live out a tv or movie scene and enjoy a balanced breakfast at home <3

I love The Weekend! Your chicken looks so good, and pretty! Junk Mail. Ughhhhh I just dont understand the point of it???? Does anyone ever benefit from it? I doubt it!

I'm intrigued by the whole chicken in the bundt pan. That would be more use out of my bundt pan than it's seen since my grandmother passed it on to me. LOL

I really need to motivate myself to get up early every once in a while to be motivated! It would be nice to start the day when you've already accomplished so much. And why oh why do they send all of the fliers? I'm just so glad that they have a recycle bin at our mailbox station so that I can recycle them all!

Pat Hatt said...

lmao we are with you on the junkmail, most just chuck it anyway. Seems like a total waste of money and people's time.

Robin said...

I was thinking the same thing about mail the other day. Those leaflets are so wasteful. Most people will just throw them away after finding a sale item in the store. We also get ads from stores that aren't nearby.

Don't even get me started on the junk mail. It's so ridiculous and just so wasteful. The other day I had over 20 in my mailbox. Turns out, a bunch weren't even for my address, someone just dumped them into my mailbox. Rage.
