Happy Friday, Friends! Today I’m busy prepping for a new Groupon offer at my gym! Gotta get all the systems in place before people come. Is there anything you wish your gym would have told you or taken care of for you before you joined?
And my other big job is that I’m throwing a bridal shower for my sister-in-law-to-be and I need to get some deets ironed out. The theme is mostly colors of the rainbow and gemstones, so I think this is going to be a success no matter what.
If you are any sort of musical cast traveling together on a plane, please take notes because I do want to be serenaded by your songs as people board. The Lion King cast knows what’s up.
I’ve read about this pattern of sleep before as part of research on polyphasic sleep, and to be honest, I’m wondering if I could do it. The idea of having the middle of the night all to myself to create, relax, and just be is so appealing.
And here are some animals you didn’t know existed.
I love these whimsical city maps!
I LOVED this post by Ashley Ann about drinking coffee with two hands. I had never put words to that feeling,
The idea was simple – when we drink coffee (or tea or Dandy Blend or whatever you choose) with two hands we are usually moving slow and soaking it in a bit more. Usually we are really enjoying that cup of coffee, that moment. When I think about two handed coffee drinking, I think of camping trips, Craft Weekends, Saturday mornings…basically, I think of slow. Most days I pour a cup of coffee and drink it with one hand. The other hand is busy doing a host of other things. Sometimes the cup sits on the counter and is never finished.
Let’s give it a whirl, friends.
My body is not a democracy. My body is an empire and I am its dictator. You do not get a vote. There will be no coup d’etat. Rebel forces will not overthrow me. I am in charge of it forever.
This is the kind of recipe I want to memorize and use forever: an architecture, a loose plan, and then the present moment fills in the details.
