The amazing adventures of our tiny apartment, after the jump.
Here I sit. The end of my era . . . the last day of my vacation. Vacation? They asked. Where are you going? They inquired. My couch! I proudly proclaimed. People were confused, though it should be noted that my coworkers seemed knowingly envious, why wouldn't you make plans to do something with those extra 40 hours? Because . . . I do plenty. Sure, I could always do more, who couldn't. But, I do plenty and what I really want to do is sit on my ass and watch the hours and hours of my beloved television friends clogging up our DVR.
I drank lots of tea. Ok, so it's been crazy warm for some reason (50 degrees!?), but it's still January. So I drank lots and lots of tea. I have a gorgeous teapot which was a wedding present from a friend who hates to make teapots. I get my honey from a terrific apiary in Deerfield, Mass (though, only until I get a house and my own sweet little ladies) and my favorite is the goldenrod honey. I get my tea from Harney & Sons and they has so manys yummies! I made so, so many pots of tea and hunkered down into the warm fuzzies of the couch.
I ate breakfast. Like, real breakfasts. Eggs, bacon, rice pudding, salted toast, fruit, yogurt, the whole nine.
I went running! Outside! In January. And, full disclosure, I only managed about 2 miles, but I did it!
I watched so much tv. I watched the entire run of Friends. I grew up in the 90's and yet somehow managed to completely miss Friends. I always just thought it was stupid. And it is, but turns out, I bought right into it and sucked it all up. I watched 30 Rock, The Big Bang Theory, The Mentalist, CSI (all varieties), Being Human, Once Upon a Time, The Finder, SVU, Suburgatory, NCIS, Glee, Criminal Minds, Up All Night, Family Guy, Mythbusters, Iron Chef America, White Collar, Parenthood, Royal Pains . . . and so on and so forth. Yeah, that's right. Some of that might have been more than a year old, so . . . don't judge. I told you it was cramming up the DVR.
I baked. I made full and complete dinners.
Most days, I didn't get out of my pjs. So, win!
I got to make art. I worked the hell out of my daily art cards. I made extra spicy nice ones, because I took lots and lots of time on them. I also made fabric covers for our blah kitchen and it really jujed up the place! Ok, not the best picture, but don't begrudge the idea and execution. I got my sewing on! I also made a cover for my ugly rubber storage drawers.
