Good morning friends,
Coming to you at the end of a very rainy week. Currently sipping away at a latte and staring aimlessly at the grey sky and pitter pattering sidewalk. I actually love this scene. I like my sun but there is something comforting about a rainy, yet still mild, morning or afternoon. Probably my favorite type of weather (for a short time at least).
Rainy days and lattes
To sum up what was/could have been a very long mind dump (scroll on down if you just feel like getting your list on)…. I don’t understand why it feels like I have so much less time than normal!? Oh wait. Yes I do. It’s because I’m not used to working a full time Monday-Friday job, I am useless after 6:00, I’m used to having breaks throughout my day, and I’m used to living alone where the majority of my work/reading takes place as I eat (’cause that whole eating with no distraction thing = awwwkwwarrddd). Now that I’m home with family, my meals are spent with others (or stuffed in my face during work). So this has taken away much of my personal blog/reading/work time. By the time I’m done work and have had dinner… well that’s about it for this chicky. I literally caught myself sleeping fully sitting straight up on my couch at 9 pm on Thursday night…. watching “Grace and Frankie” with my two 65 year old parents. I am so f***ing wild.
As a result, I’ve been feeling more behind in my blog reading, commenting and responding than I like to be. I just don’t have the energy. Which sucks – I love you guys. I’ve been sort of giving myself until June to finish “settling” in at home and let myself focus on blog things. But once June hits (aka this week what the fuddgggeee??) I’m needing to begin making my school work (writing a script, reading plays) and all my other summer goals a priority. Which means I need to let go of some of my already precious blog time. HOW DO YOU DO IT ALL!?! HOW! If only we didn’t have to sleep.
Okay that was a bit of a mind dump. I apologize. So rather than doting on my future productivity, let’s stay in the moment and remember all the little things that made me smile and made me feel productive last week. Meg holds the party for us every week and I know we are all equally as grateful.
Last week I…
Morning writing bliss
Including some fab morning eats
Got a little help from this DQ ice cream cake while celebrating my brother’s girlfriends’ birthday.
REAL yogurt. It’s about time we got acquainted.
Organic tea stash for my kombucha making, PB2 for some baking experimentation, my beloved Tulsi tea, witch hazel for my minimalist skin regime, digestive enzymes for what I think may come in handy, and the infamous Barney Butter. I’ll let you know…
Beautiful teas. Including some Chaga Mushroom and Dandelion Root
Yeah, yeah… nerds unite.
Coming soon to a blog near you…
There may have been something else, but this has already perked me up wildly form the somewhat exhausted “blah” state I was in this morning. I don’t know why I’ve been so tired. I guess there’s been a lot of internal work going on. Or its the getting up at 5:30 every morning. Those mornings though… mmmm.New yogurt, new goals, new bedtime? Get caught up on my last week with me! #timemanagement… Click To Tweet
Do you journal?
Are you a morning person or night person?
How the hell do you balance staying caught up with blogging and real life?
