My favorite part of blogging is getting to know other bloggers, and learning how much we have in common, even if we come from different backgrounds, have different perspectives, and live different lives. While I enjoy learning what others think about “big” issues, I also love getting glimpses into others’ daily lives. In that spirit, I am joining with other bloggers to share the minutiae of a typical day in my life.
My alarm goes off at 5:00 am and my day starts by taking Tiger Lilly for a walk.
Our usual “around the block” loop is 0.9 miles.
Are you done taking pictures? I’m ready for breakfast!
After I feed her, I head out for a run or down to my basement for a workout.
It’s not fancy, but I have everything I need for a good workout at home!
Once I’m showered and dressed, I have breakfast while I browse Facebook and the blogosphere.
I am up for 2.5 hours before I head for work, but that “me” time is an oxygen maskthat gets me through the rest of my day.
Yes, I’ve had a cup or two of coffee at home,
but the first thing I do when I get to work is head to Starbucks for one last cup!
I love my Starbucks ceramic cup even though
it was at the root of a months-long saga!
The next 10 hours of my day look a lot like this:
I’ve told you that I sit too much!
I do have my lunch over by the window so I can enjoy this view!
Did you see the year’s worth of pictures I made into a calendar
I usually don’t get home until 7, so dinner has to be fast.
Last week I made a vat of pork stew in the crockpot and ate that most nights.
Before I “close” the kitchen, I pack my lunch for the next day.
That old salsa jar is the perfect size for my overnight oats,
but I try not to think of salsa when I’m eating them. 😉
I spend the last few hours of my day watching T.V.,
and catching up on Facebook and blogs.
Last week I also started to re-learn how to knit.
I should go to bed by 10, but usually it’s 11. 🙁
