this post is brought to you by starbucks, hot tea, and the lumineers.
it’s a rainy saturday afternoon and since EBN has decided to take a late (and hopefully long) nap, i’ve left other BNs at home in hopes of getting a jump-start on the work week. i’m not stressed (something sort of new for me) but i know the week will be a busy one and so if i can get a bit done before monday that would be a good thing. as i’m now managing 3 blogs (this space, THIS space and soon to be one more space – we’ll be launching at the end of the month), it means a lot of time spent lurking online, reading and researching, and then writing. i’m digging it.
i’ve never been a tea drinker but as i’ve taken on this paleo lifestyle (for the most part) and as we’ve had several colder than normal rainy weeks here in the bay area – tea and i seem to have struck up a new and surprising relationship. don’t get me wrong, i’m planning to give up coffee no time soon (i know, not true paleo) but in the late afternoon, or as a bedtime snack, a hot cup of tea is sorta becoming a thing. between the crochet and the tea and the hot tubbing and the vintage longer length skirts and dresses, i’m practically ready to retire and move to florida. if it’s warmer there than it currently is here (types the girl wearing fingerless gloves) you can count me in.
in addition to listening to records – we’ve been listening to the lumineers. i’m basically the last person to discover music so i take no credit (especially because they also appeared in this week’s people magazine which means i’m super late to the game this time around). but i’m head over-heels in love and it seems like the only thing better than the lumineers themselves is the pandora station. so…i like the lumineers, dear internet, what else should i be listening to?
ps. i have a wart on the bottom of my foot (now aren’t you glad that the photo above is of a cup of tea?). i know, tmi. but in truth it is all i can currently think about even as i type other words, analyze volunteer retention, work on my weekly calendar. it’s nothing new, it’s probably been there for the last 2 years (maybe more). but i finally went to have it professionally dealt with yesterday (after a month or more of “work at home” yielded no results) and now my wart which had for years been easily ignored is now more painful than childbirth (especially childbirth that included drugs). it’s on the ball of my foot so walking sucks but even if my foot is just pointing down it’s super uncomfortable because all the blood is rushing in that direction. when ever i think about taking off my sock to check out my “ouchie” EBN screams bloody murder (she caught sight of it just once) and says no mommy, no, sock back on! this too shall pass. but i thought you should know…
