AMAZED BY | how fast a month flies by. Feels like I just wrote my “Currently in June” post, but I guess, it’s been four weeks.
ENJOYING | a popsicle (or two) in this hot weather. I usually have lemon popsicles in the freezer, but picked up peach pops last week. What’s your favorite flavor?
ADMIRING | this beautiful new leaf on my Monstera.
ORDERING | take-out at a new-to-us restaurant. Jon had pizza and I had a pasta dish. Both delicious.
READING | Love Lives Here: A Story of Thriving in a Transgender Family by Amanda Jetté Knox. What an amazing book – you need to read this.
TRYING TO | get back to blogging (and reading blogs) this week after a bit of an unplanned break.
WORRIED ABOUT | more heat and more wildfires here in California. Last year, the air quality was awful at times and I can only hope that we won’t get a repeat (but I am sadly not convinced as we had our first ‘taste’ of smokey air this week from the Dixie Fire, north of Lake Tahoe).
SAVORING | these moments of zen at the park on my early morning runs.
(really) EXCITED | that I got to try out an actual Peloton bike at my friend Susi’s house. I’ve been trying to tell myself that I am totally fine with the no-frill bike that I have (and truth be told, it’s been working great for me this last year), but man, I’d be lying if I said that the Peloton bike isn’t extremely nice and fun to ride!
MISSING | my family and friends. Please don’t @ me and ask why I am not traveling to Germany this summer. I know that I am technically allowed to leave the country and return (others might not be so lucky), but I really don’t feel safe traveling yet with so many unvaccinated people and the Delta-variant floating around. I still miss my family though.
EATING | Barbara’s Oat Crunch. I get a craving for cereal every once in a while and I love this one. Also, chicken kebobs. (Not together, obviously.)
DRINKING | lemonade mixed with sparkling water. You should give this a try. It’s a refreshing treat and real thirst quencher.
