Wow!!! The mornings have been AMAZING!! It is 4:45am as I am typing this and I have just sat down with a fresh, piping hot cup of coffee, and the windows are open.....
I haven't done this in a lonnnnng time, so I am going to go through a typical weekday, mostly because at this very moment, I couldn't be more excited that the work-week is almost over....
4am: alarm goes off. I wake up, and just lay in bed for 30 minutes trying not to go back to sleep.
I force myself up, and put on water for the coffee. I then lay on the
couch and sometimes DO doze off until the kettle whistles- my second
alarm. I make my coffee, surf the web, blog, or Instagram until:
5:15: then, I throw on some workout clothes, take Eddie out and finally get to the gym by...
5:45: gym! I made it!! I listen to my booty music while going nowhere fast- on the elliptical, then do a few weights.
7am: I'm back home to check the animals' water and dole out any hay if needed, then let the chickens out.
7:15: shower, get dressed, mascara, lip stuff.
7:40: pack my lunch, fill up water bottles for the day while I'm at work.
8am- 4pm, although the last several weeks I have stayed til 4:30 or even 5pm:
I am at my job all day. I eat lunch at my desk and pretty much am parked at my desk for a solid 8 hours....which is why when I get home at
4:30pm-8:30pm: I squeeze in as much as I possibly can!! This includes:
- cooking dinner
- spending time with the indoor animals
- heading outside to absorb the evening sun, air, and good vibes from
the farm animals and the farm- sometimes that means taking a nap in the
- getting supplies/feed from the feed and tack store or getting groceries for us
- lawn work
- and with any time after the animals get put up for the night, I sew,
do my online classes, or watch bad television with Christian!
....and here are some snapshots of yesterday outside of work:
I put some peppers and tomatoes in the crockpot along with some chicken in the morning before work so that I could come home at the end of the day and enjoy some awesome chicken tacos!!
Anyway, happy Friday!!!!
