Things I love Thursday 13/2/2014

Happy Galentines day!  And happy Thursday as well.  Once again it’s time to make a list of all the things that I’m happy about this week.

This week, I love:

– Getting things off my chest.

– Planning my most sensational Valentines Day ever.

– My brother and his girlfriend.  They are just the cutest couple ever.

– Experimenting with different salads.  It’s been too hot to cook, so I’ve been eating a lot of salads and sandwiches.  I used to use the same ingredients every time I made a salad (lettuce, cucumber, carrot, zucchini, tuna) but I’ve begun busting out some new combos and having loads of fun with it.  The salad above was a combination of spinach, fetta, peaches, grilled asparagus, walnuts and quinoa.  Other salad favorites?  Roast pumpkin, spring onions, pesto, pine nuts and haloumi.  I’m breaking all my old rules!

– Making a start on a baby blanket for one of my friends who is expecting a little critter in July.  I’m so excited for her.  I don’t know yet if she’s having a boy or a girl, so I’m making a rainbow blanket.  Fact: all babies like rainbows.

– Scott Pilgrim vs The World.  It’s impossible to feel sad while you’re watching that movie.

– Kristen Wiig.

– Early morning snuggles with Ringo and Jelly.

– Gorgeous co-workers who say “I missed you!” when you come back to work after a single day off.

– Planning a trip to Melbourne to catch up with one of my college buddies.

– Jigsaw puzzles.

– Finding a good menstrual-care yoga sequence.

– Working on commissions from my etsy store and feeling proud of all the things I’ve sold.

– Visiting my grandparents.

– The epic fan my grandmother gave to me.  It’s so powerful I can feel the breeze it creates two rooms over!

– Cool weather at night.  The nighttime temperatures are dropping low enough for me to sleep under a blanket again.  Thank goodness.

What do you love this week?


  1. Hee! YES! All babies like rainbows!
    Now that sounds like a mighty good fan! I kept trying to convince Michael he needed a better fan, he only has a tiny desk fan, but he seems to think all fans are the same. Nu-uh dude!!

    • I was in the same boat. I had two other fans that worked pretty well and I was convinced that a fan is a fan. That is, until I saw this uber fan. Good lord, it’s like a man-made gale!
