I’m supposed to be working on my thesis tonight. This is easier scheduled than done. I’m also supposed to be working on my facilitation contract. It’s hard to focus on work when I get home from work. I want ‘me time’, I feel like I worked hard all day and deserve some time off! I have a meeting with my adviser tomorrow though and I need to provide her with something. So after I’m done guiltily procrastinating while writing this post I’ll get to it.
Getting a handle on my procrastination is on my health coaching to do list in case you were wondering.
Right now I’m scanning 2 cooking blogs, which have me SUPER excited about cooking and meals. simply breakfast is by a photographer who shoots her breakfast every morning and has provided me with breakfast excitement unlike any I think I’ve never felt in my life. Despite my deep dying love for brunch, I don’t much like breakfast. I hate waking up and I hate eating when I’m sleepy. Sometimes my throat/stomach gets all extreme about it and I gag when I try and force it. Most of the time I just don’t wake up hungry, which is probably significant of something. This blog is kinda making me want to change my mind….
The other food related blog is sprouted kitchen. It has some really simple and really amazing recipes on it. Ones that make my body be all like, “yes please!” and me be like, “I could probably make that”. ONE day I will have kitchen appliances that enable me to make all things, but for now as long as I can chop it fine enough with a knife (no food processor) or it calls for the type of kneading that ends before my shoulders want to die (no mixer) I’m down. But just you wait other recipes. Just. You. Wait.
Oh! I am completely obsessed with this new share I came across. Portland Apothecary
check out the list of things from the Winter Share (click above photo to go there)
+Herbal Chai with Astragalus, Burdock, Dandelion & Echinacea
+Sore Throat Spray
+Breathe Easy Chest Balm
+Tincture for Alleviating Seasonal Depression
+Remedy for Easing Family Visits, Work Parties, Etc
+Warming Bath Salts
+Herbal Gamasio (Nori, Black Sesame Seeds, Milk Thistle)
I mean seriously. I want it all. The shares are $120/each and come out once a season. This is just the second share they’ve ever done (the Fall Share was just sent out a couple weeks ago) so the orders are limited to 50 this go around. I desperately want one, I’m such a herbalism nerd but whatever its good for my health. I don’t know how/if this will get across the border though so I’m hesitant to order it (also the lack of $120 makes me hesitate too!). This hesitation might make me too late for this next share but I’m still gonna pine for it.
Aside: is that how you spell pine? Like pine tree? that doesn’t look right to me….
I have some style related tabs open too, which are mostly me pinning a lot of asos stuff in burgendy, forest green and navy. Most of it is sweaters, jackets and boots because its cold out today. I’m going to let that simmer a bit in my mind before I do another ‘style’ post that I feel so ambivalent about. I feel pretty vapid when I post about clothes, which is partially warranted and partially ridiculous (see how I did that? perfect Libra moment). But its honestly something I’ve been struggling with lately, I want to wear things that make me feel like me again, so up it will go. Also, with the exception of the crafts for fall post I did earlier this month, the style post has gotten the most hits of anything I’ve done recently. I think I have an idea of what the internet wants. And its not talking about myself. Not that I’m writing this for other people, but I do get a little thrill when I see that people have been reading.
So its 10:30pm. And now I just want to make this salad from sprouted kitchen (fresh veggies!) and read my new canning book. Instead I’m going to force myself to work so that I’m not all panicky tomorrow in front of my adviser.
Who am I kidding though, I will be anyway….
