365, 7: day 3

Los Angeles

I just can’t believe that I’m still in this middling waiting period at work. It feels like it’s never going to end. Fortunately, this cat was waiting for me when I got home, and she even let me pet her a little bit. She was a total sweetheart, despite what my cat thought – she spent much of the night pouncing at the window! I’m surprised by how much I’m conflicted by this Cubs-Dodgers series, even though the outcome seems pretty obvious at this point. And I made a surprise great fridge cleanout meal: parsnip noodles, broccoli, chicken sausage, and dates.

This picture is way more fall than it actually is. Another Monday. Work, gym, cooking, tv, reading bed, repeat forever?

365, 7: day 1

Los Angeles

Wow, Year 7 is pretttty crazy. I made baked oatmeal this morning while we debated whether to go somewhere to watch football or just stay home, where we didn’t get the Packers game. And then Aaron Rodgers got injured and wtf. We gave up and went to the gym instead and then to BevMo for pumpkin beer, although I have not been feeling pumpkin beer this year (which I think is mostly a symptom of not feeling beer in general). I made kale salad and roasted delicata squash, my husband grilled fancy sausages, and we watched more baseball. I need more weekend.

365, 6: day 365

Los Angeles

We went to yoga this morning, for the first time in forever, and did some house things. And then we went to the Dodgers-Cubs playoff game tonight! I was probably cheering equally for both teams (I prefer the Dodgers, but my brother-in-law, who cares a million times more than I do, is a die-hard Cubs fan), so that made it a fun and easy game to attend. And it was actually a pretty great game! And I guess nice that the Dodgers won, as we were at their stadium. The night ended (and, with it, this SIXTH round of 365-ing!) with a silly phone call from my mom and sisters and SNL.

365, 6: day 364

Los Angeles

Happy Friday the 13th! I started the day with a dreamy hike and got a lot of stuff at work done that I’d been putting off all week. I’ve been trying to clean out the refrigerator, so I made sweet potato, leek, lime fritters, served with cilantro jalepeno aioli and avocado, a meal I’d been dreaming up all week. It was super good. In spooky, Friday the 13th spirit, we watched a bunch of Halloween episodes of Sabrina the Teenage Witch, which actually totally holds up.

I mulled over a single, really complicated problem at work basically all day, and it totally drained me. Work lately, slash for so long now, has been so hurry up and wait. Plus that Cubs game, wow.
