I truly am trying to get back into a blogging rhythm. Sometimes, though, the thought of creating compelling or even coherent posts keep me from writing, if we’re being honest. I have always marveled at those who can post every day AND write something I want to read. I tried writing something “fun” and failed (sticking with the honest mode) and decided that a stream of consciousness was the best I could do.
Sunday Thoughts, But Not Necessarily Deep Ones
I never noticed until this weekend that I have under eye circles. I am not happy about this. Plus, I have no real idea how to wear concealer.
Sometimes I watch YouTube videos where they do face contouring, etc. It both scares and amazes me. Like, they look nothing like themselves, which is probably the point, but as someone with imposter syndrome, this seems like a dangerous, slippery slope.
My brother is turning 50 soon; I find this hilarious. I am turning 46 soon; I find this less hilarious because that is impossible.
It’s been cool this weekend (60’s), which I typically prefer, but it’s going to be 90 next weekend. This does not please me. Nor will my electric bill be pleasing.
I am currently living in my grandparents’ home. It is both cool and weird.
Max is a lazy bum. But he is my lazy bum and I love him. I also love how he naps with his head on a pillow.
I might buy some potted herbs, basil and Italian parsley, for my patio. They will most likely die terrible deaths due to neglect, but it’ll be nice to have fresh herbs for a day or two.
The A/C in my car is dying. This makes sad. Mostly because I don’t want to spend money fixing it or melt in the summer heat. It’s possible I’m overly dramatic too.
I made some banana muffins with chocolate chips. They were delicious, even though I accidentally over-baked them. I couldn’t remember how long they were suppose to bake and was too lazy to double-check and oops.
I went to a store to find my Mom a birthday present this weekend but got myself a present instead. This might make me a bad daughter! 🙂
Fewer people are wearing masks. I am still wearing mine, partly because in the four months after I moved back to Minnesota from California, I had 2 colds. In the approximately 15 months (holy crap!) since masks were mandated, I’ve had NONE, ZERO, ZIPPO. I am a cold MAGNET so masks really do make a difference.
New normal. Old normal. Return to normal. What the hell is normal anyway?
I have been going for regular, evening walks. I am very proud of me for this doing this. But summer is also upon us, which means it’s about to get humid and hot. So I need to find something different. I’m interested in exercise apps or videos you can stream – any recommendations? I am open to both free and paid options.
I am learning again, for the 23859860486068th time, that people are who they are. You can’t “fix” or save them. Only they can do that for themselves. You need to do right by you.
This video brings me such joy. I know it’s Tuesday but it’s “Monday” for most of us and I wanted to leave you on a joyful note.
I hope everyone had a great holiday weekend and a nice, short (and not too chaotic) week! And don’t forget to share any recommendations for workout videos/apps, etc.
I’m with you on the problems of blogging. I last posted May 11th, and I think I’m leaving it that way. I was traveling the last half of May and the idea of uploading and editing pics seems like torture. It feels weird but I’ve been blogging for 10 years(!!) and I think it’s finally time to let it go.
Air conditioning is vital in a car, lol! I overheat really easily where I get all red and look like I have a rash. Me and the heat are not friends 🙂
