There's always a light at the end of the tunnel. I'm just feeling funky this week, stressed out and bummed out. I'm ready for it to be over. It's summer, it's warm, and I have so many things to be thankful for. I just need to snap out of it somehow.
Chocolate chip banana muffins (from scratch). Well, we'll see if they're any good (they're baking now).
Mmm...salsa! I made this a few weeks ago, and again last night. I decided that it was photo-worthy, so here we are. It's obviously simple to make, but who takes pictures while they're...cooking, no ... dicing? Well, I do. It's like a combination of all my favorite blogs: Dave's cooking photos, Brooke's colors, Annie Eats' food, and Stephanie's lifestyle photos. I am always attempting to be "smart, pretty, and (inevitably) awkward," haha. Ole!
Today, I got to tour the newly remodeled penthouse and 12th floor at work. The first person we talked to was the CEO. When his phone rang over on a nearby chair, he told us that he had no idea where the tropical tones were coming from, haha. Good times. Cierra proceeded to ask him what he does if he forgets his security badge. Apparently, he gets a temporary one, just like everyone else. Seriously?! Everyone knows you. You wouldn't believe the views from that place even if I had a camera up there.
So, I was pulling weeds out of my garden today when I realized that I have about three "simple things in life" moments. Simple things that I see that make me smile or think or are just interesting to me. Read them if you want to, or you can just skip over them. I'll add them in if I can remember them all day. Dorky, I know.
I have a few since I've been thinking about this all day:
How is it that spiderwebs can withstand rain/water, wind, and who knows what else, but the moment you touch them, they stick to you and are totally destroyed. No joke, I saw a 10-12 inch spiderweb "bridge." It was impressive. I didn't take a picture of it (shocking, I know). There were a ton of layers to it.
I just got a cord that allows me to play my iPod through my sweet stereo with subwoofers (boom boom pow!). For some reason, I thought that if I went to Radio Shack, they would laugh at me for requesting such a specialized item. They were totally sweet and didn't even give me a weird look.
iTunes has a genius playlist?! You just choose one song, and then it selects songs that go well with it to play for your musical delight. Fabulous!
