This is a regular feature post on my blog. See the archives here.
+ Slow computers. Or huge data sets. Or both. I just don’t have patience for this. Especially when I need to get things done.
+ People who talk very loudly. There is this maintenance guy in our office building and he basically ‘yells’ at you every time he comes by to check on something (which he does a lot). I wonder if he has a hearing problem.
+ We watched the 2nd presidential (town hall-style) debate on Sunday (with my parents, who probably only understood half of what was said, but were able to get the vibe nonetheless and wanted to see the ‘trainwreck’). So AWKWARD.
+ Hosting my parents. It’s been so fun having them stay with us the last couple of weeks. I will be so sad when they leave again.
+ Having one-on-one time with my parents. I took my dad to my gym for a workout (I wish we could go work out together more often) and to a pre-season NBA game. I also enjoyed a ‘girls day’ with my Mom at Apple Hill. It’s just so nice to spend some quality time with each of them.
+ Dutch Apple Pie alla mode. That’s all.
+ Our new couch. Love it so much.
+ I haven’t talked about my homemade granola enough lately. I’ve been having it for breakfast pretty much every single day these last few months and I haven’t gotten tired of it yet. It’s just so good (and less sweet – only ⅓ cup of sweetener and oil). I’ve been thinking about switching up the recipe a bit, but I am hesitant to get too fancy. With a lot of other food things, I like the plain versions best. How do you like your granola?
+ Gunther’s Ice Cream. Oh eM Gee. So delicious. Now I know why there is such a long line out the door all the time.
+ A run on the beach this week. It’s a special kind of treat. I wish I lived near the ocean.
+ A delivery of Stumptown coffee right to my door step. (I am always taking advantage when they offer free shipping!)
