Apartment Therapy's How to Clean Your House in 20 Minutes a Day for 30 Days. This little project started when I decided I wanted to check out zone cleaning, and Kelly sent me the link. We have a habit of letting most of our cleaning (vacuuming, cleaning bathrooms, etc.) wait until the weekend, which actually leaves a lot of random, deeper cleaning tasks out in the cold. I'll probably do a whole post on this because I find the mundane details of home life fascinating. I love knowing how other people handle this stuff, so let me know if that's something that weirdly interests you too.
Feeling | Good! Friday I spent all day at a very swanky mall in Dallas with girlfriends. I hadn't seen them in quite a while--we worked together at my old job--so it was fun to hang out all day, eat sushi, and enjoy happy hour. I was fairly exhausted yesterday, so it was a sluggish Saturday of not doing anything really.
Reading | YES! Big news, eh? I'm finally reading The Fireman by Joe Hill for #Firemanalong. I was waiting on my library copy, and it took forever to arrive. I quickly knocked off 50 pages of it on Thursday, so I'll probably try to dive back into it tonight.
I'm also getting into Toil and Trouble, a series of six comics by Mairghread Scott and Kelly and Nichole Matthews. It's a re-imagining of Macbeth with some seriously badass witches at the helm.
Finally, I'm listening to Lab Girl by Hope Jahren. I started this on my Wednesday night work commute this past week, and it's love! Jahren's writing is so eloquent, and her voice is so soothing. I love the way she explains her science in layman's terms. Looking forward to listening more this week while I'm working out and driving.
Listening | Besides Lab Girl, I'm into podcasts, always. This past week was an especially good episode of Lore titled "The Mountain" about explorers and their sometimes-tragic ends. I don't recommend listening when you're out running before dawn. In a part of town with iffy streetlights.
Watching | I've been getting caught up on some BookTube viewing, but besides that, mostly watching Chopped during meals.
Loving | My new Lush purchases! I grabbed a Rose Jam scented "bubbleroon"--a bubble bar that looks like a cute, sparkly, pink macaron.
Hating | Shootings. I don't even have the energy to go into it today.
Eating | Veggies! While I haven't been as consistent as I'd like, I am making a concerted effort to make sure about 3/4 of my food is veggies and fruit. Having that ratio in mind really helps me, and so does summer produce from our neighbors. This week I'm going to make these lentil-stuffed zucchini boats.
Anticipating | My next trip to the pool. So hot.
