A few random things

I'm really not sure what to make of the unseasonably warm weather we've been having.  It was a little chilly on Sunday, but the cold had mostly vanished by Monday, and yesterday it was 45 degrees.  I almost thought I'd misheard the weather forecast - four to five degrees?  Nope.  Forty five.  Forty plus five.  In January.

Knowing Minnesota, this is either the universe's attempt to make up for the freezing deluge of snow that was last winter, or we'll end up paying for it in the future.  I'm hoping for the former, but betting on the latter.

That reflection you see is not ice...

March?  Nope.  January.
 Since I got into the office super early yesterday I took the liberty of leaving a little early as well.  Usually Ben gets home at about 5, and I get home around 5:45-6 so by the time I'm back he has already walked and fed the dog and we start working on dinner.  Last night though, I managed to get home in time for all three of us to walk together!  I had a quick snack before we left, so that I would be reasonably close to my 2-hour pre-yoga eating window before my 7:15 Anusara class.  I find that if I try to eat even a light meal within 60-90 minutes of practicing I feel really nautious - especially if it's a hot class or if we're doing a lot of twisting or intense inversions and backbends.

Our walk was great, class was great... overall it's been a great week, with the exception of a few minor glitches that happened on (surprise surprise) Monday.  Luckily even the dumb things I've done that make me question why I'm allowed to have any adult responsibilities are usually balanced out by a few awesome things:

Things I've done this week that were kind of lame
- Forgot my security badge on my desk..on Monday.  That badge is going to get me in
  huge trouble someday.
- Forgot my wallet on my desk, also on Monday.  Luckily I had the foresight to leave it in a
  drawer rather than just out in the open...but I'm confused as to why my subconscious hid
  my wallet by putting it in a drawer rather than in my purse.  Just wondering.
- Tried to eat oranges as a snack at work.  This is a bad idea, trust me.  Oranges were not
   meant to be eaten on a white surface while also typing on a computer.

Things I've done this week that were totally awesome
Made cupcakes filled with scotch-flavored pastry cream.  Yes, that is correct.  I used single-malt
  scotch to make a cupcake filling.  Judge me.  I dare you.
- Threw a birthday party for Ben.  I didn't take photos but it was super fun.
- 11.5 hours of yoga
- Read some books

alcohol + cupcakes = magic

So overall I think the awesome list wins. 

This was very random.  Just to finish on a high note, here's a photo of Sidney looking suspiciously like tree-dwelling monkey:


Happy February?


  1. glad to hear the week is going well! those cupcakes look fabulous!

  2. I think even if the only thing on the awesome list was the scotch-y cupcakes, it still wins. I want some!
