Phew. August has been a month. Let me give you the scoop about what’s currently going on over here.
HAPPY ABOUT | the weekend trip that J and I took to the North Bay. We hadn’t gotten out for an overnight trip in a while and it was good that we did.
EXCITED ABOUT | my first tomato this year finally (!) turning red. It took forever. I got the tomato plant a little later than I had planned in mid-June and this is the first tomato to actually ripen. I hope it tastes good!
FEELING | a little bit off this month. I took three weeks off of running after my half marathon and I’ve been slowly getting back into the swing of things, but I have not been feeling 100%. Not exactly sure why, but I am just hoping September will be better.
TRYING TO | stay motivated, because work has been really slow the last few weeks and there is nothing more frustrating than sitting around with not much to do. I’d rather have too much than too little work, because man, 10-hour days can get really long if you’re just constantly trying to create busy-work for yourself.
EATING | milk rice. So tasty, so satisfying.
DRINKING | more water. (Always a work in progress.)
LOVING | our backyard and just hanging out there on Saturdays mornings. I cannot tell you how happy that space makes me.
READING | You think it, you’ll say it by Curtis Sittenfeld.
WEARING | my favorite boyfriend jeans.
HOPING | for some moderate temperatures. We had a few nice days in August, but also also some really hot days (and nights, where it didn’t really cool off at all) and I can’t believe I am saying this, but I am kinda ready for fall.
LOOKING FORWARD TO | the four-day weekend. Do you get Labor Day off?
What’s going on with you currently?
