You’ve answered the phone at least once in your life like that.
How has it been a whole week since 4th of July?! When did it become double digits anyway? Oh, yesterday. Huh.
Things I did yesterday: Watch my friend Sam market Cutco knives to my mother (mom bought some!), walked 4+ miles with mom, ate a killer lunch (at 4:30 PM….I’m still nocturnal, so that’s how things work right now), loaded some stuff in the car for Florida, made Amanda’s banana bread mug cake, and hung out with Daliza.
Lunch: soft boiled eggs with salt and pepper + avocado toast + jam and brie toast. FAB.
Not nearly as pretty as Amanda’s (I don’t think I combined the ingredients well enough) but so darn tasty!
Things I’m doing today: Reading, errands and walking with mom, video chat with my aunt and cousins, and a local Italian festival with dad, Daliza, and Michael!
I’m sorry that this intro was not cohesive, if it can even be called an intro. Just don’t mind me and enjoy these Fascinating Friday links.
