Hey Happy Thursday! Almost the weekend...almost! I have still not gotten into a routine for the year yet and am still struggling with managing time and tasks that need to be done. So I am just popping in today for a quick post. I will just share some random thoughts that I have had over the last week or so. P.S. it has been in the 30s in the early morning at at night so I woke-up around 1am last night Wednesday's night/morning and realized my mom had turned the heat on. O, I can not handle this weather this soon! Anyway...Let the rambles begin!
+ Just like #augustbreak2013, The SITS Girls are having a 1 week September photo challenge on instagram and I decided to join in. I will share the photos next week, but you can follow along now by checking out my instagram! I love these little challenges. After the August one was over my instagram usage went way down. So this is just a fun way to get back in to taking quick pics!
+ Am I the only one who loves the smell of Extra Virgin Olive Oil? Whenever I use it to lightly grease foil or a pan, I put the bottle to my nose and just breath it in for a few calming seconds. Haha, I just love the smell...very calming, try it!
+ Another weird thing I love...callouses! I used to wear weight-lifting gloves then I would lift, but now I don't since I want to keep the callouses that are forming. They make you look tough, strong, and powerful...right? Mine are really small, just along the bottoms of my finger joints and top of my palm, but they are always more prominent right after a workout. I will just have to keep working that grip!
+ Did you know I tie my shoes with the "bunny-ear method" still. I never learned the other more "adult" way and really don't want to...it looks to hard. Plus I think the bunny way if so much more effective. Just criss-cross, make two loops, and fold then around, then do it again to double knot and bam! My parents never taught me how to tie my shoes anyway. It ended up my brother's best friend's sister who finally taught me. And she taught me the bunny-ears, so I just took what I got and rolled with it.
+ Don't you hate when you comment on blogs and you don't get a notification if the blogger comments back. This is one of my biggest pet peeves about blogging. Like don't they realize I comment on tons of blog and can't remember to check back on all the posts to see if it was responded to? At least the blogs using WordPress.com still I get a notification for as well as some others. but come on bloggers! Set up a notification system!
So those are some random thoughts...and rambles from the week. I found this cute little Android App for my phone called Inkpad. Its totally free and I have been using it to remember these random thoughts and also future blog post ideas. I never seem to have my blog planner with me when one of these thoughts occurs and my phone just seems to be a better resource.
So tell me:
Do you have any random smells you absolutely love?
Do you love callouses? I think I may be doing some counter-effectiveness on the build up since I always use this strong hand cream on my hands twice a day. I think that is hindering my build-up process...
How do you tie your shoes? Who taught you?
Does this blogger- comment-lack-of-notification-thing piss you off too?
