saturday stats

for the week of april 29 - may 5:

  • exercise - yoga or otherwise: 2 (shit.)
  • walks with monkey or bike rides (yeah, yeah. this is exercise. but its fun and doesn't count as exercise in my head.): 0 (shit again.)
  • number of smoothies: 3
  • number of glasses of green juice: 5
  • meals involving pizza: 0 (but i thought about pizza. a lot.)
  • meals involving piles of vegetables: 6
  • i cooked: 4 times
  • letters written: 1
  • packages sent: 11
  • things made: 40 necklaces, 8 bracelets, 36 barrettes (craft show prep continues)
  • photos taken and edited: 212
  • best thing i watched: tv - it was NOT he died with a felafel in his hand, as predicted. it was good, meh in parts and hilarious in others. anyway, i went to see cabin in the woods again, which i'd been dying to do. my thirst for more joss whedon and fran kranz was great so, i started to rewatch dollhouse. i sort of hated it the first time. i'm definitely into it now. also, cabin in the woods is still awesome - in case you were wondering.
  • books read: let's pretend this never happened by jenny lawson. fucking hilarious and exactly what i needed this week. like, tears streaming down your face funny. like, having to read it out loud to shawn because he's jealous of my laughter funny. i love it.
  • days i wore socks: 1
  • days i wore no socks: 6
  • living room (and kitchen) dance parties: 1

(here's where i make a prediction for next week: i'm watching he died with a felafel in his hand right now. noah taylor's in it. i love that scrawny bastard. i'm guessing this will be my favorite thing i watched in next week's post.)

flashback friday

one year ago kateri had just visited. shawn & i had gone to the PSU farmers' market for the first time. i was baking rhubarb pie, cooking soup and making a necklace that looked like a bunch of tulips.

two years ago i was having a rough time of it at work and a small kindness went a long way.

three years ago i received owl mail. 

four years ago my litte bird was on the craft zine blog, a friend did something extra sweet. lucy was fading and shawn was amazing. 

five years ago i was making all sorts of stuff, missing new orleans and dizzy tried to melt monkey's brain.

five moments

we woke up to sunshine. the only possible choice we had was to blow off work this afternoon, play hooky and enjoy it. it is, after all, march. in portland. the grey skies will be back before we know it so we need to soak every bit of vitamin d up while we can. here's five moments from my day...

from the top: 

  1. standing outside water avenue coffee, squinting up at the sun while drinking my iced coffee. bliss.
  2. shawn's game face at ground kontrol.
  3. oh powell's, even you glow in the sun.
  4. record shopping. he went through jazz. i went through soul and funk but ended up grabbing de la soul is dead. *
  5. we walked. a lot. the sky was so blue, the clouds so puffy - even the sidewalks were gorgeous.

there were also photobooth pictures, sandwiches at bunk and smelly things at lush.

*yes, i am fully aware that we spent time indoors. but we weren't any one place for very long and did i mention we walked a lot?
