It has been a doozy of a week. My beloved laptop has been having a meltdown. Or maybe it’s me that’s been having a meltdown? It’s been re-imaged, restored, wiped, re-installed, restored, and wiped again…and again. And man. It is amazing how dependent I am on this thing. And how distressing it is when it’s not working correctly. I do spend at least eight hours a day with my little lappy, so it shouldn’t be surprising how disruptive problems can be. But I am wiped out and frankly, ready for a long weekend away.
This week, I’m reviving my old school style. I used to write these paragraph-long lists of things that I loved and print them in my zine (oh, the 90s). Today, I need to be reminded of the little things in life that make me smile.
The Friday I am loving…
new conditioner that smells like the salon, the leather bracelet that makes me feel a little tougher, lemonade-scented lip gloss, the morning light hitting the green-tiled I. Magnin building across the street, coffee, learning how to wear bronzer, late night metadata conversations with brilliant women, the way Zumba makes me feel like a dancer, new hiking boots, feminist magazines, re-reading Wheetzie Bat, strawberries, peanut butter ice cream, the feeling of knitting needles in my hands, Smash and Bunheads, iPhone photos of my three-year old niece, reading in bed in the morning with Sean asleep beside me, weekend getaways.
We’re heading to Cavallo Point in Marin this weekend for a belated birthday celebration. Thank goodness. Who knew when we booked it that this would be a weekend when I would really need it?
I hope you’re week has been a little less crazy. What are some of the little things you are loving right now?
