Bits Of My Weekend

I can’t tell you how happy I am to get back to our regular lives again. Sure, it’s not completely normal with Will still out of work (and searching! hard!), but to leave the house and DO things is so awesome. The best thing is that we’ve been walking a ton. We walk every day for at least two miles, usually much longer than that. Will is determined to get healthier asap. Things accomplished during this little heat wave this weekend (70-80 degrees!): The Craft and Folk Art Musuem, Ethiopian food in Little Ethiopia, champagne and a movie for new years eve – falling asleep before midnight, waking up early and walking to the Hollywood Farmers Market for goodies (like white cheddar goat cheese, SO good), necklace making and shop redesign/relaunch prepping, preparing a return to reality this week with design work. Trying hard to not think about Wednesdays doctors appointment too much, focusing on the present.

    that cheese does sound good! i like the idea of early-sleep, early-rise, but i find it difficult…any tips? (i want to start the new year off right, haha.) goodluck to will for the job-search (it is really tough out there), and to both of you for wednesday. *hug*

    I would love to live in a place that has 70-80 degree weather right now! Kudos for jumping right into the new year!

    Sounds like you’re getting into a good mind set. We had the same kind of homely new years by the way – champagne and a funny movie (the inbetweeners). I got drunk and fell asleep 5 minutes after midnight. Sending lots of good vibes your way!

    I was curious, did you do all coding of your blog design?

    Have a good week!

    That sounds like a lovely weekend :)
    Will be turning myself into a human pretzel for you both on Wednesday.
    My Mum beat the BIG C last year & it wasnt unril then that I realised “hope” was such a beautiful word.
    Sending you love, luck, sunshine, smiles & hope.
