I have the house to myself again today – MP left on Thursday so it’s been quiet around here.
Yesterday, since i didn’t get to go to the play party, i went to the March for Our Lives, which was pretty phenomenal. Then i took myself out for dinner, where i sat outside for the river view (all zipped up in my hoodie, cause it was windy and a bit cool.)
I had some delicious seared scallops and a glass of white wine. And um, whipped garlic mashed potatoes. Super yum. Thanks to the March – and the hike back to my car – i hit my steps goal for the first time in forever, which totally made up for the mashed potatoes – yay!
New experiment today – i’m going to
try to stay off Facebook all day. (I have already been back on there 4 times since I wrote that sentence 15 minutes ago. Sigh… But now I’ve turned off my notifications.) It will be interesting to see how that goes!
i also spend too much time checking for comments here. Not today.
i want to go for a walk and maybe drive out to the beach later if it doesn’t rain. Whatever i do – whether it’s cleaning up the house a bit, which totally needs to happen, or other things (like i just ordered the new Maren Smith book, Seducing Sandy) – i want to make sure that i have time and space to feel the silence around me.
