EATING | more things from the BBQ grill and some amazing salads.
DRINKING | coffee, tea, and water.
FEELING | okay overall. I keep my routine, I run, I work, I cook and bake, but I definitely also have bouts of pandemic fatigue. I feel like I want to do a lot of things, but then don’t do anything. I feel like reaching out and connecting with people, but then am exhausted by the prospect of yet another Facetime call.
READING | How to be an anti-racist by Ibram X. Kendi
LISTENING TO | a new health podcast.
LOVING | my new-to-me AirPods that were hand-me-downs from Jon, who invested in some new and better earbuds to listen to music (his ears are fancier than mine LOL). I wouldn’t have bought AirPods for myself at this point, because the wired ones work just fine at home and I have Bluetooth Jaybirds for running, but hey, I won’t say no to hand-me-downs. I know a lot of people don’t like the fit of the AirPods but for me, they’re perfect!
ENJOYING | my morning runs. What else is new? These views make up for a lot.
WONDERING | why Trump keeps calling COVID-19 the ‘China virus’. It really, really makes me mad.
HOPING | that people can be reasonable and stay home as much as possible and wear masks. It seems like a lot of what’s going on right now in this country could have been avoided, if people stopped insisting on their freaking individual “freedoms” and do something for the common good for once. This could have been long over.
MISSING | eating out at restaurants and going for day or weekend trips, but we’re still not ready to venture out.
SPENDING | more time in the backyard.
AMAZED BY | the perception of time. The days are long, but the weeks keep on flying by. It’s almost August, guys.
WATCHING | a brand-new episode of Hoarders. (Guilty pleasure.)
BAKING | all the things. I’ve been making a loaf of rye bread weekly for the last few months and I recently used some of my sourdough discards in this amazing blueberry crumble cake. I think I have to post the recipe sometime.
LOOKING FORWARD TO | the day when we can make plans again.
WEARING | almost no make-up. I use my concealer every once in a while, but since I rarely leave the house right now, and if I do, I either run or wear a mask to the store, I haven’t had the need to wear make-up in a while. I think my skin likes it.
What is going on with you currently?
