4:40am: Woke up before alarm went off at 4:45. Made coffee and ate a few pieces of brownies I baked last night.
I watched some random YouTube videos while drinking coffee before husband wakes up… I like watching inspiring and uplifting videos in the mornings. They put me in the right mood to start off a productive day. This morning I watched about bullet journaling and how it improves productivity and lifestyle. I’ve been thinking about starting one but I don’t think I have the patience.
5:45am: Went out for a long run. I ran 11 miles with 5 x 800m. Satisfied with the splits. I felt good. I love track sometimes.
11:30am: Walked to Farmers Market with hubby. We both love this farmers market so much, it’s so lively and has a good variety food stands and a live band. In the summer I go nuts on the stone fruits they sell here.
Husband got food from a few food stands and I ate from him. Samosa, fish taco, hot dog, and boba.
I got those Lula Roe tights as a gift (thanks, T) and I wore those out today. And I could not believe how comfy they are! Soooo soft and stretchy. I just need to figure out what tops to wear with them. I will love to wear them for traveling and red eyed flights.
12:15pm: Walked to Trader Joe’s for grocery shopping. Just a few blocks from farmers market.
A couple of adults and kids were giving free hugs at a street corner. I hugged 3 strangers and they were so nice 🙂
1pm: Stayed in the area and watched a movie (Guardian of the Galaxy vol 2) at this historic/old but cool theatre. We saw it on 3D and I think I got a light headache from it. It’s funny and action packed, lots of computer graphic. It’s a fun movie!
4pm: Picked up Ethiopian food from Ensarro for early dinner. It’s our favorite Ethiopian restaurant.
5pm: Done with dinner. Ate icecream and more brownies for dessert… Hong Kong Milk Tea is a new flavor from Humphrey. Wish it had more tea flavor.
6pm: Finished reading Waking Gods… I’m giving it 3 stars. It’s a sequel to Sleeping Giants which was amazing. Sequels can be a hit or a miss. This one is kind of a miss. But if there’ll be another sequel, I’ll still read it. I need to know what happens!
I actually enjoyed the story and the plot. I’m just not a fan of the writing style. The whole book is presented as pages of interviews, dialogs, journal entries, and news reports.
That was the 12th book I read this year. (I set a goal to read 25 this year.)
7pm: Cracking open a new book from the library. It sounds very promising! Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon.
8:30pm: Watched the first few minutes of Manchester by the Sea on Amazon Prime then hit the hay.
