I’m typing this on Sunday morning. P. headed out to watch a motorcycle race, so I have the apartment to myself and a relaxing day full of tiny things planned.
I’m on my second big mug of coffee and watching Brunch with Bobby on the Food Network. It makes me want to plan some poolside Sunday brunches at my parents’ this summer. He’s making homemade Pop Tarts and cocktails!
With my new laptop, I’m not sitting in our second room much anymore, and wanted a better place for my Stendig calendar so it would get some use. We hung it in the hallway this morning, and it basically takes up an entire wall. But I love it. We’re going to add sticky notes of fun events we have planned.
I just started another 30-day trial of Amazon Prime. This is probably my third or fourth one. Maybe they’re hoping that I’ll love it so much one of these times that I’ll “forget” to cancel the auto-enroll. And they just might be right. I placed an order Friday afternoon and it arrived today. Sort of sad that there are no “days of rest” for mail employees anymore… But I was still so excited when the package arrived.
I got some very florescent pens that I’m obviously smitten with, and a cheap set of watercolors. I keep seeing people writing and decorating in their planners with watercolor paint and I want to give it a try. And I picked up some chocolate protein powder. I think a chocolate banana smoothie will be calling my name this afternoon. But first, I think I’ll be making some kale and eggs for “breakfast.”
I signed up for a CSA this summer. It stands for Community Supported Agriculture. You pay in advance for a summer’s worth of produce, and then it depends on how well the farm is thriving what you receive each week. It isn’t very exciting so far. The first week was full of radishes (new, and I’m pretty sure my verdict is still “yuck”) and boy choy. The second week is promising a bit better. Still very green, but I got a bunch of kale and swiss chard and turnip greens, and I’m much more excited to play with them. I think I might start sharing my hauls throughout the summer.
Happy week, y’all. It’s time for breakfast. (And as I’m typing this, it’s 1:00 PM. What a perfect Sunday.)
