CELEBRATING | my birthday and many other March babies this month. So many wonderful people have birthdays in March.
EATING | marble cake. I always bake a marble cake for my birthday (from my Mom’s recipe). What’s your favorite birthday cake?
(so) THANKFUL | that I got to see my dear friend Tanja and for everyone else who reached out for my birthday.
SLACKING | a bit in my running routine this month, but making up for it by doing more strength and yoga sessions. It’s all good!
(kindly) ASKING | for some really positive vibes for a friend. She could really use them.
REMINISCING ABOUT | the epic skiing vacation that my whole family (my parents and sister + family) spent in the Italian Alps/Dolomites exactly 5 years ago (I’ve been getting these pop-up reminders on social media). I hope we get the chance to do that again sometime!
MAKING | Kaiserschmarrn — a fancy name for a shredded German pancake. Well, the original recipe for a Kaiserschmarrn calls for whipped egg whites and raisins and is usually served with a side of fruit compote, but I think you can call any shredded pancake with a dusting of powdered sugar Kaiserschmarrn. The one pictured above has just mixed berries (mixed into the batter).
DRINKING | coffee from my new favorite coffee mug.
LOVING | the camera on my new phone. Holy smokes, it’s impressive.
FEELING | a little stressed out by work right now. I don’t want to go into details, but let’s just say delegating, distributing work, and communication is an issue in our office sometimes.
EXCITED | about the new laptop that I picked up from IT at my office this week. I always seem to get the hand-me-dows, but at least the (new-to-me) laptop I got is a serious upgrade from the clunky Dell latitude that was already 8 years old.
ELATED | that Jon’s first vaccine appointment is scheduled for next week. Finally!
HOPING | that I will also be getting an appointment soon. Governor Newsom just released a statement that everybody over the age of 16 will be eligible after April, 15 here in California.
What is currently going on with you?
