Not sure any other 8 second video can better express my happiness today.
I know I seem to say this every Friday, but….holy crap thank GOD it’s Friday! I enjoy my job (very much), but whenever you have days like I did this week (inventory of 11,000 books, coming home to find Reuben shredded all cardboard recycling and distributed it throughout the house…TWICE…locking wallet in a walk-in freezer…I know, I know…don’t ask), Fridays are celebrated.
Coming straight home after work today to do some serious, serious yoga. I need it.

I didn’t get a chance to get a post for Friday out yesterday. BUSY week. We can now see a light at the end of the tunnel of Andrew’s job search. Things have been shaky since November….ahh the joys of small, renewable energy startups!
Teaching a couple classes this morning, then book club later today, then a birthday dinner for Mom. Lots of good things.

Wishing everyone a happy Friday a little late due to a lost internet connection at home. However, we did get about two inches of snow (and ICE) and I didn’t have to work today. Unexpected three day weekend?!?! Yay?!
Over at Mom and Dad’s writing this…we’ve been enjoying the snowy day with coffee, dance parties, and a cookie bake off: chocolate chip, snickerdoodle, sugar, and turtle. Whoa. You can see exactly what’s going on here.
What do you think of Vine?! I pretty much agree with these ladies. I’m half-heartedly participating, but pretty much think it stinks.

Not only is it Friday, but I had an excellent first week back–not sick and loving it. What’s a better way to celebrate Friday than with an illustrated diary excerpt from Susan Sontag?! I love Susan Sontag and San Francisco illustrator Wendy MacNaughton nails it. Found it on brainpickings and I’m hoping it’s the first of a series…
Macnaughton also did this:

o.m.g. it’s already September 14th…
Another week flies by again and this weekend brings an unexpected potential trip to
Cincinnati IKEA….boom dig.
Highlights of my week?
1) realizing that I pretty much love my new job and think it’s going to be a great fit for quite awhile (yay!)
2) enjoying some homemade skinnygirl marg w/ mint & cucumber…only a limited amount of time left before fall!
3) mastering the fishtail braid — thank you young lady on youtube!
4) reading this book…so good.

yeah…so two four day weeks in a row? Amazing. I’m going to have major issues next week…
Only thing on my agenda? Teaching two yoga classes and then bookclub tomorrow–NOTHING planned for tonight and Sunday. Hopefully Andrew and I can make a dent on that puzzle!
I’ll be back later today with some podcast recs!

Happy Friday! After learning some crazy crap last week, I’m trying to learn to like listening to Science Friday.
Also, I found it here this morning…beyond funny and so, so true.
Off to work now, then grocery shopping, then home. Not much scheduled for the weekend. Hoping I finally feel up to a motorcycle ride with Andrew!

yay Friday! Great great first week of work–surprisingly low stress and fun!
Now for a weekend of nothing much. Closing ceremonies, music on the square, yoga, etc. Whatever happens, I’m pretty excited for the highs of low 80s….I’m so ready for fall I could scream.
