I want to ask the question: how is it possible to be bored these days?
There is so much I want to do, read, see, make, eat, drink, watch, that at the end of every day I am left wishing I had a few hours.
Then I get really overwhelmed when I start thinking about all the classes I want to do here…then I would also love to get back into running…then I would also love to cook every recipe on Sprouted Kitchen, Shutterbean, andhere.
PLUS……I would love to plan/go on a vacation, take more photos, more motorcycle rides, blog posts to write, blogs to read, cocktails to make, yoga workshops to attend, and ETC, ETC, ETC, ETC.
I love how accessible things are these days and how much Louisville has changed since I last lived here. There are too many options and I love it…but it kinda makes my head want to pop off…please tell me I’m not alone?!?!
Oh wait…I guess I also have to work too….

However, I am happy to announce that I have stopped watching HBO’s GIRLS. I realized that the anger it incites in me is not healthy and all the elements I enjoyed last season have virtually disappeared this season. In short….Enlightened > GIRLS.
Ready for the weekend…like, whoa. It was a tough week at work full of standardized testing…kids stressed, staff stressed.
Family from out of town arriving on Sunday. Can’t wait!

Like this poster? Breaking Bad? Anyone? Typically, I have a somewhat irrational hatred for these “Keep Calm and…” posters, but this one made me smile.
My favorite television and movies of 2012. Of course please keep in mind that I have not seen Les Miserables yet (going with whole fam on Christmas Day! So excited!)
Life of Pi
Breaking Bad (AMC)
I seriously have a love-hate relationship with this show. Regardless of things I don’t like about it, it is very well executed and does great things with music.
Mad Men (AMC)
Can you tell that I still think television is far better than movies these days?

Happy Tuesday Y’all! I have Wednesday-Friday off, so it’s my Friday. yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
In addition, I have something to say about us ladies.
There was such a strong emphasis on the importance of “women” in this election. I put the word in quotations because I will never understand referring to 51% of the world’s population as a special interest group. And, as a lady who does not find weddings particularly interesting, does not wear makeup,and does not have babies, a lot of target marketing and media is lost on me.
Here’s who I look to:
Joy the Baker
For more sane lady talk, I also recommend:
I’ll be back a bunch this week with some fun stuff – yay for a work break + Thanksgiving + my birthday + wedding anniversary!

again, the weather on the weekend was flawless and it started raining on Monday morning. Third week in a row!?! I kinda love it. I take Mondays off from yoga and I don’t have to teach after work so I have been using these rainy autumn afternoons to catch up on my tv (uhhh like this show, and today this, and 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.

wow–I know it’s already Tuesday, but I just have to talk about my wonderful weekend. The weather was beyond beyond beyond–had the windows open all weekend. Nothing particularly crazy happened but oh it was wonderful.
Saturday: teaching some great yoga classes, walking dogs, bookclub outside with wine, having my parents over for lasagna, then we worked on our jigsaw puzzle while drinking and playing cards–so fun!
Sunday: big yoga practice, cleaning and laundry while watching Real Housewives of New York (Aviva be crazy!! And I’m worshiping Carole this season), porch sitting at Rach’s with loads of spinach dip + big slices of chocolate cake, reading, meatloaf dinner at the parents w/ Kaylex, followed by an evening sitting out by the fire pit.
Ahhhh it was so great! Evidence here in instagram photos:

I would never ever have found brainpickings if it were not for the overwhelming enthusiasm from @leahslag — THANKS for the tip on this one Mom!
I cannot write enough great things about this website. If you love books, music, film, art, television, etc, but especially books, GO NOW.
Some of the greatest features include a literary jukebox, lots & lots of fun lists of books, an amazingly interactive bookshelf, and more inspiration than one’s brain can handle. I always leave to go pick up a book and get cracking!
Go now–your life will be a little better. I promise.
