Awkward & Awesome


This is a regular feature post on my blog. See the archives here.

  • The temperatures have crept up to the 90’s here in the Central Valley and that usually results in puffy feet and hands for me, especially when I exercise outside. Lovely. Or not. Here are some tips to prevent swelling in hot weather.
  • When you see an old acquaintance at the park and you turn around on your heel to not have to say hello. I might or might not have totally done that. Eek!
  • It’s May! How did that happen?


  • It’s May! Summer is almost here! Hooray!
  • Today is Mayday, a holiday in Germany. Go read this post from last year about the Mayday traditions. So fun!
  • J is in SoCal for a couple of weeks  and I am in control of the remote. I usually don’t really care that much what we watch (when we watch actual TV) and we mostly agree on the program anyway, but it’s nice to zap around and just watch some chick-flicks or trashy TV shows to wind down in the evening.
  • Caprese + arugula salad. It’s a reoccurring favorite for the warmer summer months and a staple in my house.
  • A short trip down to SoCal again for Mother’s Day next week! Yay!
  • I’m slowly but surely getting back into reading (I’ll be starting “Tiny Beautiful Things” soon.) Thank you for the suggestions on my “Currently”-post the other day.
  • New stamps!
  • Running at the park!
  1. I have Tiny Beautiful Things to read soon too! Also, this hot weather is nuts! I can’t believe its May already, goodness.

  2. I love this format! We aren’t at nearly as warm temperatures as you yet (we had blizzards this week, actually), but I love how long the days are now!
