EXCITED | to be back at work (at least temporarily, as it seems) after 5 weeks of furlough. Not going to lie though, it was hard to get up this morning. It’s amazing how fast your body adapts to a different wake-up time.
GRATEFUL | that we were able to weather the shutdown-storm and have felt less of an impact than a lot of other federal workers and contractors.
EATING | this absolutely delicious European bread that I found at the International Market. It’s really more of an Asian Market (I’d say 70% of the store is Asian foods), but they have a decent selection of other international groceries. I will continue to bake at home, but OMG, it is nice to have found a place again where you can buy a decent loaf of bread.
DRINKING | coffee. Looking forward to it every single morning.
WATCHING | Salt Fat Acid Heat with Samin Nosrat. I came across this four-part documentary on Netflix by accident, but it’s super-intriguing (if you’re into cooking, which I am). I recommend you check it out. Samin also wrote a book with the same title that I am dying to read now.
READING | This is the way the world ends: How Droughts and Die-offs, Heat Waves and Hurricanes Are Converging on America by Jeff Nesbit. You guys, I haven’t finish this one yet, but everybody needs to read this. Science is real.
LOVING | the Californian winter. Cool, but not freezing, temperatures and blue skies! It’s the perfect season to run (when it’s not raining, ha).
WORKING |on my bullet journal.
PREPARING | for a potential work trip to Denver (which was canceled because of the shutdown, but now might be back on. I’ll find out in the next few days).
WISHING | I could be with my friend who is going through a hard time right now. Distance sucks, especially in these kinds of situations.
What’s going on with you currently?
