Around Here Lately // Rain, Instant Pot, and New iPhone

September 24, 2018 Life 0

Hello, hello from this dreary Monday. It’s been raining here for two days, and it seems like this pattern will continue for at least another two. Whomp, whomp.

Besides the rain, the weather is turning a bit cooler, which, in some ways is nice because I don’t love it when it’s over 100 degrees. But…fall reminds me that WINTER IS COMING. And winter is not my favorite!

Anyway! This week is jammed packed with an AWE meeting, a work event, soccer, and swim. Here’s what else is going on around here.

Watching The Handmaids Tale. We just finished season 1 and 2 of The Crown, and we loved it. Now we’re on The Handmaids Tale…a slightly different feeling from The Crown! Ha! I read the book back in college, but I’m thinking about re-reading it.

Filming my weekly vlogs. I really love making these, and now that I have more bandwidth, I’m back at it.

Drinking Mushroom Coffee Mix. What does it do? Why is it good? I’m not really sure, but I’m here for it. I like the taste. It’s smooth and not bitter.

Working on my website redesign. It’s nearly there, and I love the fun challenge of designing and creating new content.

Teaching yoga in Kate’s class. I love working with kids in this way. They’re game for pretty much anything.

Exploring connection and the role it plays in our happiness, healthy, and joy.

Laughing at Thomas’s school pictures. I never buy school pictures because 1) they’re so expensive, 2) the pictures aren’t ever that good, and 3) I take hundreds of pictures of my kids I like better. But these are hilarious. I nearly peed my pants when I saw them.

Loving my new iPhone! My old iPhone was three-years-old, so I was up for a new phone. I could not wait to get my hands on that camera. Loving that portrait mode.

Testing out the Instant Pot. So far we’ve tried two recipes, and both recipes were successful! If you have any favorite recipes, send them my way.

That’s what’s going on around here lately. What’s new with you?
