What Do I Miss {Blog Every Day in May}

I missed a few days of Blog Every Day in May – work, yoga, hanging out with friends (coworkers), my brother’s senior art show (he rocked it), spending time with family… all these things leave little time for blogging! I have been reading up a storm, too. This book I cannot put down (love Marian Keyes):

Cracks in My Foundation

I’m also revisiting Naturally Thin, by Bethenny Frankel. When I first read it I was kind of critical of some of her tips, but I actually think she has some good advice, and it’s a fun read. It’s given me some good recipe ideas too.

Anyway… onto today’s prompt:

Day 12, Sunday: What do you miss? (a person, a thing, a place, a time of your life…)

What I Do {Blog Every Day in May}

I just found out (via Jenny) about a blogging “challenge” that actually has nothing to do with food. The challenge? To blog every day in May. To be honest, I have felt uninspired by food lately (hence the lack of posts for about 2.5 weeks). So I think I am going to try this challenge, even though I am late to it.

The only rule is… there are no rules.

Today’s assignment is:

Day 6, Monday: If you couldn’t answer with your job, how would you answer the question, ‘what do you do’?

I build things. Sometimes the things I build are physical in nature; other times they are more intangible. I analyze and optimize. I teach. I lead trainings. Some things I made today:

  • Scripts to get, parse, and store data
  • Dinner (a breakfast burrito)
  • My husband smile

Other things I did today:

Whirlwind of a(n Almost Spring) Weekend

Instead of another macrobiotics post, I thought I might share what I was up to this weekend. I am so glad springtime is finally around the corner.

Friday night I was able to leave work by 6pm. I meandered home and cooked up some sweet potato gnocchi (Trader Joe’s) for myself. Bobby ended up having to work late so I was on my own. I just played around with a couple of website ideas I’ve been thinking of… overall a relaxing evening. I also read The Help (my current book). It’s really great; I definitely recommend it. I have not seen the movie yet but I will when I finish the novel.
