Hi There. How was your Friday?
Mine was quite nice, but very uneventful. I spent a good part of the day tidying up my apartment. The fall breezes coming through the window made my bedroom feel especially crisp and clean:
I spent my Friday night babysitting because I found a job for the fall! The family I’m going to be working with (once a week, after my internship ends for the day) wanted me to come over and meet their kids before my first day, so I volunteered to go on a Friday so they could have a date night. The two kids are awesome and I’m really excited to get to know them this fall!
I finished around 10, so Matt met me in Coolidge Corner so we could go to the new yogurt place we are obsessed with. This is the only yogurt place in Boston (that I know of) that has the salad bar type toppings that you can just help yourself to. I went a little nuts with the fruit:
After yogurt, we debated a movie and then decided to go to bed. Sometimes it’s nice to just sleep.
When I woke up this morning, it was very chilly in my room. It was so cold, that I thought it might be raining outside. But, I peeked through the curtain to find a completely clear sky. Guess we’re just having a front, because it supposed to be HOT again soon.
I sat around this morning reading blogs and catching up on email. Breakfast was a yogurt parfait with an Australian yogurt that I snagged on sale. I love these as they are sweet and taste like vanilla bean, but I don’t buy them often because of the price.
I couldn’t get over how blue the sky was on the walk to the gym…
The undergrads must be returning to campus, because I saw quite a few families moving their kids into the dorms and apartments near me. I sure don’t miss moving all my stuff every year!
At the gym I rode the spinning bike for 40 minutes and then did my usual push-ups. My spinning classes don’t start up again until September so I’ve just been creating my own personal classes by changing the speed, resistance, and positions on the bike for each song. People usually stare at me because the bikes are in the middle of an open room, but it’s really fun.
After the gym, Matt and I went grocery shopping. We’ve been switching it up between Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods lately; today was a Whole Foods day. I absolutely love grocery shopping (or any shopping really) so I look forward to this trip each week. We got more vegetables than we normally buy (I’m not a huge veggie person) because there were quite a few sales.
There’s nothing like coming home and making a fun lunch with new groceries! This is herb turkey with avocado, mustard, and pepper-jack on sourdough with mixed greens, cantaloupe, and unpictured jalapeno chips. Perrrfect lunch!
I’m currently blogging from a coffee shop while Matt gets some work done. Tonight we’re going to a fancy little bistro for a special treat…
