Today’s Happy Note: An excursion to the new Trader Joe’s in Chelsea! It was awesome; spacious and calm and totally the opposite of the Union Square Trader Joe’s. Not frenetic and crazed. Loved it.
Pretty good day. Busy but not overwhelmingly so — those are my favorite kind of days. I won’t lie though: I may be 20 years old, a senior in college, and holding down two “real” jobs, but there are moments when I wish I was twelve again, reading in my backyard and running through the sprinkler all summer long. I used to have the house all to myself everyday of summer from when I was about twelve on. I would make brownies, reread the whole Harry Potter series, and dance outside when it rained.
I kinda want that back. Being an adult is hard.
Today started with a brunch for Second Job, which ended yesterday. I feel really sad about it actually. Organizing and overseeing within the framework of a non-profit has been something I have truly fallen in love with. My students are my babies, my coworkers are heroic.
Also: I love huevos rancheros.
Cookie the size of my head.
That is oats topped with chocolate and peanut butter. I know many bloggers have said this before so it kinda isn’t original but: PB and chocolate is my favorite food combination in the entire world. No questions asked.
Other favorite food combinations: hummus and cheddar cheese, carrots and almond butter, mango and coconut, salmon and asparagus.
Your favorite food combos?
I ended the day with a nice little workout: 20 minutes of arm strength and a 6 mile run with lots of hills. Currently watching movies, snuggling in bed, and thinking of fun things to do this weekend. Any suggestions?
I need an Adventure! This is my first free weekend in a while.
What are your plans?
