incredibly sad that I am here and not there. If you follow me on Instagram, you already know that due to some unforeseen circumstances, I had to cancel my trip to Germany to see my bff and go skiing with my family and to say that I am disappointed is the understatement of the century. I haven’t seen my family in almost a year and this trip would have meant so much to me. Sometimes in life, we don’t get to do what we want and I try to accept that, but it’s hard right now. Thanks to everyone who has reached out already.
looking forward to
spending some time playing in the snow!
that perceived time will really slow down for the next two weeks while I am on vacation.
going back to work tomorrow, so I can save some of my vacation days for a later time.
enjoying the early morning sunrises on my commute to work.
loving my latest knitting project. It’s a triangle shawl in simple garter stitch, but I just love how soft and cozy this pattern is. I just want to snuggle into it, and I feel the color gradient of the yarn adds enough uniqueness to this otherwise simple pattern.
drinking Lemon Ginger tea.
eating oatmeal. I tried this recipe from Laura’s blog last weekend. The only change I made was that I used quick cooking steel cut oats instead of rolled oats (because they don’t get so ‘mushy’) and it was really, really good. The recipe called for using water and no sweetener and I wasn’t sure if I would like that because I usually made oatmeal with almond milk and maple syrup in the past, but just adding the raspberries and nut butter (I used almond) totally worked! You should give this a try. It’s tasty and really filling!
watching nothing. I honestly haven’t watched a show or anything in AGES. I am also not going to ask for recommendations because I just don’t make time for shows (although there are a few that intrigue me, to be honest).
reading Fates and Furies by Lauren Groff.
listening to NPR. What else is new. I really only listen to anything when I commute to work these days…
but maybe I’ll pop in an episode of one of my saved podcasts on my flight.
excited that I got to see a friend from College last weekend. She’s on vacation in the States and was in the area, so we decided to get together. We studied P.E. together back in the day and had loosely kept in touch over the years and it was just so nice to catch up in person again!
What’s up with you currently? Tell me something good.
