::7 am ::
I ate my leftover baked tofu sandwich for breakfast because there is no way I could have waited until lunch time. Also, I don't have a problem eating non breakfast food for breakfast. I have been known to eat leftover Indian food for breakfast.
:: 8 am ::
Someone is a very sneaky kitty! I was trying to take a photo of my glass when Farva stuck his face in it. I have started collecting these glasses with the name of the month and that month's flower on it. The one in the photo is April. I think they are so cute!
:: 9 am ::
I spent some time in my email inbox and tried to clear a few things out and answer any emails that may have slipped through the cracks. Does any one else open emails on their phone, say to themselves "remember to respond to that once you're on the computer", and then feel like they already responded to it because you have thought about what you would write back?
:: 10 am ::
Listened to some music.
:: 11 am ::
Checked in with my to-do list.
:: 12 pm ::
After exercising I made myself a drink with some of this fancy stuff in it. It tasted...interesting. I think I probably won't notice the taste after a few drinks.
:: 1 pm ::
Tested out all of my metallic nail polishes.
:: 2 pm ::
Admired my new office curtains. I found them at Talize on 50% off day and was pretty excited. They are an even better colour in real life (the sunlight coming in the window washed out the colour in the photo a bit).
:: 3 pm ::
I spent some time gardening because it was beautiful out! Super windy but really warm. I got pretty excited that our pear trees are blooming too!
:: 4 pm ::
My gardening shoes of choice. Somehow I managed to keep them clean.
:: 5 pm ::
I had an apple and some water while making dinner. I also admired my little counter display. I actually bought those two mushroom jars on different days but they are a perfect match. Actually that's not super amazing because I see them all the time all over the place.
:: 6 pm ::
Ivan has been doing some home beer brewing and his second batch was ready to try. We have been making sure to take photos of the first beer from each batch.
:: 7 pm ::
Did you know I play the drums? Well I do and these are my fancy sparkley purple set. Ivan was recording some songs for his work to use in videos and I played the drums for him for one song (that's why there are a million and one cables and mics!).
After this I ran out to grab some groceries and nearly got blown away by the wind. We finished the evening by watching a movie and falling asleep on the couch. Very exciting.
this sounds like such a lovely day! kitty faces squished in a glass can make any day better!ReplyDelete
They sure do! Farva is so bratty but it is really adorable.Delete
sweeet drum kit! I love it!ReplyDelete
so fun that you play the drums. when i was in grade school we got to pick out what instrument we wanted to play and i wanted to play the drums, but in order to be able to play them you had to be able to carry home the drum practice kit all by yourself. well the drum kit weighed too much and i couldn't lift it. (i was SUPER tiny, like not even 4 foot tall weighing like 60 pounds) I was SO bummed and heartbroken. instead they made me play the clarinet which i totally and completely hated.ReplyDelete
ps - in a totally different note i have a set of three of those mushroom containers up for sale in my shop right now =)
I'm always opening emails up on my phone (normally when I'm rushing out the door...not sure why) and thinking I'll reply to that later! I must stop doing that, it doesn’t help when I’m trying to be more organised. Do you find you can listen to music while you’re working? I have to stop myself listening to my favourite tracks or I just end up listening to the lyrics and can’t think.ReplyDelete
I sing along too much, ha. I can't even read blog posts while listening to music because I am just singing & not reading!!Delete
I don't believe in the structured nature of certain foods at certain times. I (and a lot of other people) eat breakfast for dinner, and all kinds of leftovers for breakfast. It actually makes it easier to find something, I think.ReplyDelete
It definitely looks like you had a great day! I think those flower glasses are so cute!
I wish I had half the time to spend with my kitties! Lucky!ReplyDelete
Looks like you had a super cute and colorful day :3ReplyDelete
I'm the same about breakfast, I actually don't like most breakfast food so I end up eating the weirdest things.ReplyDelete
those glasses are so cute! i haven't seen those before. and for some reason knowing that you play drums is super delightful. i would never guess!ReplyDelete
I wana see a bigger pic of your curtains, they look really pretty!ReplyDelete
Thats cool you still find time to play the drums, guess it helps having a musical man too but too many people forget or cant find the time!
ps did you post the recipe for the baked tofu sandwich? looks yummy. i did a serach and couldnt find anything.
Nope! The sandwich is from the co-op in Erie, PA. Most delicious sandwich ever.Delete
Looks like a pretty nice day! I love the curtains in your office. The texture is really nice. Also didn't know you played drums! Very nice.ReplyDelete
I didn't know you played the drums - the purple sparkly set is awesome! I want to get a pink or purple sparkly bass but for now I have to do with my normal black one.ReplyDelete
Oh cool! You play bass? I play too and when I was in one of my bands in University I bought a heart shaped bass. It is pretty cute. A pink or purple sparkly bass would be so fun. But yeah, if I hadn't bought all of these pretty instruments when I was younger (and apparently rich?) I wouldn't be spending money on them now!Delete
I am ridic jealous of your sparkly drums!ReplyDelete
eeek! my heart jumped when i saw that you were listening to my songs! <3ReplyDelete
matt wants to try homebrewing beer... it sounds like him and ivan should be beer buddies. xoxo
Monday was my birthday!:) My cat loves to stick is nose in my glass as well, he thinks he's a little person.ReplyDelete
There is so much to respond to here... great day in pictures. Non breakfast food for breakfast is THE BEST! My favourites are left over Chinese Food, spaghetti & meatballs or fajitas (tummy rumbles), but really anything like that will do. You play drums... very fun. Hubby would find the beer brewing the best pic of the bunch. Your trees are ahead of ours... so for that I am jealous. The canisters... have them too (2 bigger, 3 smaller thrifted on one day & have never seen them since). When my cousin was married in the 70s these Merry Mushroom pieces were quite the wanted item & somewhat expensive.. she received hers as a wedding gift from her Dad. She had come with me for her first ever thrifting trip last month & this is when I scored mine... interesting indeed.ReplyDelete
My son totally loves Indian for breakfast. He gets on the bus at 6:30 am. There is nothing like being asleep and waking up to the smell of Indian. lol He is in high school so I let him eat what he wants but its way weird for me. (The smell mainly.) He's your tiny kindred "not so much breakfast for breakfast" spirit.ReplyDelete
I absolutely love the pen from the 11am picture. I wear glasses and I think they're extra cute!ReplyDelete
Elyciaaaa! You are so wickedly cool. I LOVE that you have a glass of the month collection. Like seriously. Also, that April glass? Charmin'. But really, THAT OCTOBER GLASS! <3 I love October!!!ReplyDelete
Also, Farva, Farva, Farva. Adorbs.
Finally, you drummer you! Bad ass chick. ;) I wanna learn to play the guitar!!!
Man, that is TOTALLY what I do with e-mails! GAH! It's so bad. Like I'll wake up in the middle of the night & check my new e-mails and then DREAM about writing back. So I think I did. Only to find out weeks later that I didn't. haha. Glad I'm not alone! (Well, maybe with dreaming about it... haha!)ReplyDelete
Ooh you could notice a difference in the taste with the hemp powder? I use that stuff too, but I never really notice a specific taste. Maybe I'm just used to it now, haha. I use some hemp powder, too.
ha. Your cat reminds me of my chihuahua. She is so sneaky! She's like a tiny little magician. Now you see her... now you don't.ReplyDelete
Aww! What a cute (and mischievous) kitty! They always HAVE TO BE in the middle of EVERYTHING <3 <3 <3ReplyDelete
PS: I'd really like to see a bigger pic of your curtains too!ReplyDelete
Sounds like you had a lovely day! I DO THAT ALL THE TIME WITH MY EMAILS! It's so irritating :P I love your purple drum set!ReplyDelete
I am the absolute worst at replying to emails... Absolute worst. (And I'm pretty sure you and I had an email conversation going that I can't remember who left off!) And I am in love with your drum set. It kind of makes me want to paint my bari sax with glitter paint.. but I don't think that would work so well!ReplyDelete
I've been thinking this week of how I REALLY need to stop checking my email on my phone because I keep losing important emails that I thought I responded to then remember a week later I didn't!! I'm going to whole foods this weekend to get hemp protein for when I work out. I heard it's really the best for you! and I love the glasses on your pen :)ReplyDelete
I <3 your drums and the picture of Farva in the glass, is priceless.ReplyDelete
Long time fan of your blog. I'm curious, is Ivan wearing a MasterCam shirt?ReplyDelete
I love your little counter display! Makes me wish that I didn't have roommates who leave trash and old food all over the place. I bought some kitschy salt shakers shaped as pigs for us, but whenever I see them in the kitchen I feel like they need rescuing from that horrible place haha.ReplyDelete
my fiance plays the drums and also has a sparkly purple set! your drum sets could be twins! :O!ReplyDelete
I think watching a movie with the one you love and falling asleep is just about the best night you can have. Throw in a couple beers and you're all set =)ReplyDelete
Now, I thought you were pretty cool before... and now you are telling me that you play the drums, and your drums are SPARKLY PURPLE?! Gah!! xxxReplyDelete
What an AWESOME idea! Looks like you had a fun day too!ReplyDelete
I would love you to visit my blog sometime too http://www.dottypinkdesigns.blogspot.com
