5 things I’m loving right now

  1. Love-FireSeeing a movie in 70mm projection complete with an intermission just like the olden days. The movie was Hateful 8 by Quentin Tarantino, just in case you’re curious. I think it’s only available in digital now. Sorry about that!
  2. Having a productive weekend that, somehow, still managed to feel relaxing, evenly paced, and not rushed.
  3. Day after day after day of my body waking itself up when it was ready. It’s so nice to just go with the flow and let my biorhythms set the course.
  4. A man who is happy to help me put the finishing touches on my place. There are certain things I can’t do myself. So, the fact that my manfriend is super handy and willing to step in is so, so, so appreciated.
  5. Cooking in my new, big kitchen. It’s a joy!

5 things I’m loving right now

  1. Love-FireMy sleeping bag coat. Seriously, this thing is like wearing a sleeping bag. It’s far from flattering, but on mornings when the temp is 6 degrees, I really don’t care how I look!
  2. Buying new plants. I moved recently and my new place is WAY bigger than the last place, so I have plenty of room for all sorts of new plants. I love growing plants.
  3. The short rib tacos at The Roost in Longmont.
  4. My family. They’re pretty great.
  5. When the gifts you give are a hit. My niece Farrah was besotted with the Ana costume I gave her for Christmas.

5 things I’m loving right now

  1. Love-FireCurved shower curtain rods. Seriously, why doesn’t EVERYONE use these? You don’t end up fighting the shower curtain as it clings to you all shower long and it instantly makes your shower feel quite a bit bigger. Genius.
  2. Having my new place professionally painted before I even moved in. Such a good call. I knew the mint green everywhere needed to go. I also knew it would take me the better part of my life if I tackled it all on my own. Now it’s done and over with and I love it!
  3. My grandmother’s orange holiday cookies. Word is that she couldn’t cook to save her life, so these cookies were her one culinary accomplishment.
  4. Upcoming baking plans for this week. I love to bake and haven’t done it for three years because my kitchen was teeny tiny. Now, I have a much larger kitchen and I’m ready to get to it!
  5. Tenderness in all forms from all people.

Confession Thursday

  1. Confession I’ve started missing doing these.
  2. I can never remember if Christmas is on the 25th or 26th. I know, I know.
  3. I just bought my first place and it’s SO much bigger than the apartment I’ve been in for three years that I sometimes find myself spinning in circles trying to remember where everything is. It seems like a mansion to me!
  4. I think I’m developing an addiction to crockpot cooking. It’s so gratifying to spend so little time prepping only to return home to a home cooked meal ready and waiting.
  5. I’m partly doing this again for my mom. Love you.

5 things I’m loving right now

  1. Love-FireGetting to spend a TON of time with family and friends over the holidays. It was great to have so much time together. For me, that’s what this season is all about.
  2. The blanket of white snow on everything. I’m not, however, loving the single digit temps. Burr!
  3. The excuse of cold weather to stay in and hibernate. Makes me feel less sloth-like to blame it on the cold.
  4. Spending a good portion of the weekend cozied up in bed. I mean, the reason I was in bed so much was that I was sick, which stinks. But I love that I have such a cozy little place to rest in.
  5. Exciting things on the horizon for the New Year! Bring it, 2015!
  • About Me

    My mother is an encyclopedia of useless information (sorry, ma, but it's true) - no one can beat her at Trivial Pursuit. As I age, I become more like dear old mom everyday. I routinely tell people about resources, recipes, tips, tricks, or websites I've heard about, tried, live by, etc. until one of my clients urged me to start a blog. So here it is! My perpetual ramblings. I hope you find them useful and amusing. If you don't, you can either keep it to yourself or leave me a well constructed critique.

    I'm a former massage therapist, a freelance journalist, and a web information architect and UX designer. I enjoy yoga, the Bar Method, camping, reading, gardening, and spending time with my friends and loved ones. I live in Colorado.
