If I’m writing, it must be Sunday Lately. Like I mentioned last week, it seems like the only time I post anymore is for Sunday Lately. I swear, I have the best of intentions to stick to the posts that I say I’m going to write. I’ll get there.
Friday night, Draai Laag released a sour stout in collaboration with Caliente. It definitely didn’t have the same feel as a stout (and it’s listed as a sour ale on Untappd) but it was definitely different and worth waiting in line to try something new.
A big revamp/comeback. I want to have a bunch of content lined up, a new home page, a fun giveaway. I’m also planning a big blog tour with Katy (you know, the maker behind this awesome shirt/hat combo. And a third of the Sunday Lately group). It’s a mashup of fashion bloggers and sewing bloggers. We’ll give you an occasion to dress for and you put together an outfit, either sewing or styling. Let me know if you want to join in and we’ll hook you up.
The feeling of a clean house. Sadly, that feeling is few and far between lately. I don’t know why, but there’s something so satisfying about a clean kitchen and a freshly vacuumed floor. My kitchen seems like it always has something in the sink or sitting on the stove. I’m in the middle of a big baking kick. I’ve tried Jana’s coconut muffins and I’ve modified these chai pumpkin spice kiss cookies from Pass The Sushi over the years to get them to a juuust right place.
“Big Magic” by the incomparable Elizabeth Gilbert. I’m not as far in as I’d like to be, but I know when I finally sit down to read and get into a groove, I won’t stop. I love her writing style. Her podcast is just as incredible as her writing. Speaking of podcasts, have you caught up on Nicole Antoinette’s first season of the Real Talk Podcast? I read she’s recording her second season and I can’t wait!
I’d love a few more hours in my day. Or someone to help with my to-do list. I know people have offered to help, but a lot of what I need to accomplish is up to me. I mean, I can outsource the creation of a menu of services page, but I want to do it. Because I’m stubborn and it’s important to me that I do it. Because I’m a control freak like that.
We had our first Freedom is Sexy Sister Circle call on Wednesday night and it was wonderful to feel connected to the other people in the program. Since then, I’ve been feeling all the emotions; it’s been a rainbow of emotions this week. I’ve been overwhelmed, energized, lethargic, exasperated, anxious, happy all within the span of a few minutes.
