It’s been a very long week, over here in my world, and a very productive one as well! Here’s the things I was loving this week:
1. Chipotle. Yes! I got the job! After three interviews, I was finally informed that they thought I was the best addition to the crew, and they couldn’t wait to work with me! My mind has been totally changed after some research on the food, and after getting a few free meals, I’m glad I work there. My go to burrito? Chicken with cilantro lime rice, sour cream, cheese and lettuce (I love their lettuce! It’s super crispy and adds a great texture to the burrito). It’s simple and way delicious.
2. My Sleep Mask. When I ordered from drugstore.com (which is where I usually order vitamins and misc. beauty things for cheap), I needed an extra $2 to get free shipping, so I headed over to look at sleep masks. The blinds in this room leave some of the light out, but right where my head is, there’s a shaft of light every single morning that ends up waking me up around 8. So, when I use the mask, I am able to sleep later in the day (and I don’t wake up as much during the night, either).
3. Knitting. I had tried to knit this summer, but it was so humid and so hot that the yarn felt gross on my fingers, and I was miserable. Now that I can control the air in my room, it’s always cool enough to knit while I’m covered with blankets (seriously, I put the air at 70 and it’s a freezer, I bump it up to 75 and I’m roasting). I’m working on a few projects right now; something that I started over the summer but was too hot to pick up again, and a gift for someone. The best thing ever is to sit wrapped in blankets with a movie on my computer (it’s best when its a Disney movie, but any works; last year, I would watch “Planet Earth” and knit hats) and just knit. Or, like last night, I took a melatonin, climbed into bed and just sat and knit. The pattern is complex enough that I don’t get bored, but easy enough that I don’t get frustrated with it. My head was free to wander, and when my eyes started aching, I put the knitting down, scooted down into my blankets, and fell asleep.
So, those are the things I was loving this week, what were your favorites? Have a wonderful weekend everyone, and tune in on Monday for a post about Aloe Vera!
