This week I’m…

Hello, hello,

This was a long week. I swear Tuesday felt like Thursday and the week just sort of dragged on from there. It wasn’t that any part of it was bad, just tedious. But, that’s okay. Not every week had to be super exciting.

Anyways, I wanted to try a new thing called “this week I’m” to recap my week. So here’s the rundown.

These week I’m…

Exercising

Eryn and I ran 20 minutes without stopping!!!! We’ve been doing the “Get Running” app on my phone, and this week we reached out first nonstop run. It was hard, but worth it. I did a 5K once, but I didn’t do it without stopping. This, I did without stopping. It’s a big deal to me.

Painting

I got a new set of gouache paints, which are an opaque watercolors and completely new to me. I don’t quite get how they work yet, but I did do this painting to remember New Orleans.

Eating

Pinterest meals. Eryn and I started a thing where we cook one meal off a Pinterest meal every week. This week we did a potato dish and we made a turkey burgers with a tzaztiki sauce, It’s been a lot of fun and it forces us to try new recipes. I don’t know what we are going to do this week yet.

Binge Watching

The Chef’s Table. It’s a series of Netflix documentaries about some of the top chefs in the world. One of the chefs operates out of Hudson, New York, which is the region of New York my family is from so that was really cool. The particular chef also has really interesting ideas about food and farming.

Going to

The St. Andrews Mardi Gras parade. It’s a big event they do in Panama City every year with so many beads. I’m not normally a parade person, but catching beads made it so much fun. We brought Addie to the parade, and she was so well behaved. I only had to pick her up when the cannons went of. Treats are her biggest motivator.

Exploring

St. Andrews State Park! Mom got Eryn and I passes to the Florida state parks, so we headed out to the beaches today. It was in the 60s, which was a little chilly, but it was worth it to wade out in the water and look for shells. We were the only people out in the water, everyone else on the beach was in winter coats.
