I barely have any photos on my camera roll right now from the last two weeks. It’s just been a lot of the same so nothing too interesting to note. I had a large number of screenshots from Instagram to send to friends for inspo, too many photos of our TV because I just couldn’t believe what was unfolding live, and a ton of my broken toe to send updates to my mom. (This sounds weird, but I can’t be the only one…. right?)
Anyway here’s some highlights from my camera roll:
We’ve been having the coziest nights. As boring as it can be not having anywhere to go during the pandemic, Mike and I have a nice post-work routine that I love. I’m positive there will be a time in our lives when life is crazy and we’re running around again and I’ll look back and think: remember when we went through a huge list of TV shows together?! The dogs love snuggling in too.
I’m slightly obsessed with English muffins at the moment. I’ll eat them any which way. I mostly do buttered or peanut butter and jelly… but I started doing avocado toast. So good, highly recommend 🥰
Mike and I were working from the couch watching the counting of the electoral votes. I had Twitter pulled up and started seeing people tweeting about a breach and then a couple minutes later it was being reported on the news. (I took a picture to send to a group chat to be like, “ARE YOU GUYS WATCHING THIS?” and then things just started getting worse.) Looking back, we had NO idea what was about to happen and I was actually bracing myself (and expecting more death/destruction).
In that moment when you don’t know what’s about to play out, but you know it can’t be good, there was so much terror. I had to leave for my volunteer shift and was so scared that by the time I got home we’d have a full blown civil war underway. I still feel sick thinking about that fear and I think part of me is waiting for another shoe to drop.
Some cute gingham disposable mask options at HomeGoods.
I’m pretty partial to cloth masks, but I put a few disposable ones in the glove compartment of my car for emergencies if my cloth ones aren’t clean or (more likely) Mike forgot his, ha.
I bought Mike a juicer for his birthday and we’ve been loving it. Still experimenting with different combinations, but we’ve been doing everything from plain oranges to leftover produce from last night’s dinner. It’s so nice to have fresh juice whenever we want!
Mike whipped (literally!) this up one night. We had leftover cream and he hand whipped it with some vanilla and added some berries on top. Kind of felt like being in a restaurant and getting a fancy dessert!
This was a bit of an LOL moment…. I got into pajamas and climbed into bed recently. I felt a *stabbing pain* on my back. So I reach back and find a needlepoint needle that somehow had gotten stuck to my pajamas and was poking me. I have no idea where it came from because I’m pretty good about keeping my needles stuck to current projects or stored away, but clearly one got loose.
The other night I wanted a doughnut so badly. Our Whole Foods is right across the street from the Dunkin so I popped over after picking up dinner ingredients to get one. Unpopular opinion, but I actually kind of prefer the doughnuts when they’re slightly stale. (Sounds disgusting to type it out like that 🤣). My only regret was that I only bought the one and not a few…. yum.
And one last picture of the pups to sum up how most of our winter days have been. Lots of snuggling.
