PARTICIPATING | in a virtual Mother’s Day 5k with my Mom, my sister and my Mom’s friend. Doesn’t matter if you can be together in person or not, you can always run a virtual race #separatebuttogether. (And of course, I could count on my friend Tanja to join as well!)
STOKED | about my first IKEA visit since before the pandemic started. It was so nice to roam the aisles. I didn’t buy a whole lot, but a few (smaller) items had been on my list for a while. And of course, there are always things that you didn’t know you needed. Haha.
READING | The nine lives of Rose Napolitano by Donna Freitas. So many thoughts, stay tuned for the review.
BUYING | more plants. I think Jon’s going to put in a veto soon.
DRINKING | green smoothies (or is it technically eating?) for my 10-day Green Smoothie Cleanse.
EATING | an adapted version of this Feta-Cucumber-Dried Tomato-Farro-Salad with chicken. You gotta try this sometime. It’s a great summer dish. Fresh, crunchy, and filling.
EXCITED | about a surprise package from Germany! :)
WATCHING | Schitt’s Creek. We’re on season 4 and loving it. It’s getting better and better.
ENJOYED | having our first visitor (Jon’s Mom!) in over 18 months. It’s been nice to hang out with someone other than each other. Scrabble is more fun with three people as well.
CELEBRATING | 15 years of marriage today. This is crazy.
STEPPING UP | my running game. I am back to a 3-runs-per-week schedule and I am so thrilled about it. I really love all the other cross-training activities (sometimes I can hardly decide which one to pick), but I really want to focus more on running again.
(super)BUMMED | that one of my favorite (German) instructors, Irène Scholz, is leaving Peloton.
FEELING WARY ABOUT | California’s planned full re-opening in mid-June, I have to admit. This probably warrants its own post (another ‘Blogging through he Covid19-Crisis” update, perhaps), but I don’t feel ready for full-capacity indoor dining and no social distancing or masks. I trust science, I trust the vaccine, and numbers are down, but are we really out of the woods yet?
What is currently going on with you?
