Do you sometimes not remember what you did on Monday by Friday?
Today somebody asked “why didn’t you go to so & so on Monday?”
Me – blank stare – ‘cause I couldn’t recall what I did do on Monday. I knew I didn’t do so & so, what the heck did I do?
The answer for all of us is …”what didn’t I do?” We are busy people. By Friday, Monday seems months & a thousand “to dos” in the past.
Soooo, I thought I would recall & share just a bit of what I did do this week.
Let’s see, I hosted a breakfast meeting for some lovely ladies. I bought bunches & bunches of flowers, served coffee, luscious berries & scones. Simple – as we had business to attend to.
Those ladies drank lots of coffee, got down to business & ate hardly any scones. But you should make/eat these obscenely delicious scones from Le Petite Brioche. I have been!!
In spite of eating leftover scones or because of eating leftover scones, I am planning on amping up the workouts. Still in the ‘planning stages’ but I did add one thing to my routine recently.
I have been doing 25 push ups while waiting for the shower water to heat up. It takes just that amount of time for me to squeeze in 25 good ones.
Now I don’t even think about it. Turn the water on & hit the floor. Pavlovian – after 6 weeks. This week, not sure exactly which day, I noticed that it is paying off!
Tank top weather is coming & I am going to be ready! In 6 weeks, not changing anything else ( and eating piles of scones ), I have definitely noticed more definition.
Want to join me in my new regime’? Here is how to do the perfect push up. Form is key – less reps with good form is better than a 100 with poor form. So if you are new to push ups do 2, but do 2 perfect one. Increase the number as you can. Then go buy a tank top for inspiration! ( both tanks pinned here )
Got this swatch from Ballard Design on Thursday. ( I love Ballard – reliably good source for all things home) This fabric has just the right juxtaposition of bling & homespun. Nubby, shiny & perfect! It is called Metallic Linen Gold. I plan on making some pillows with it.
It is like this table & chandelier I posted on FB. You all went nuts for it earlier this week! The swatch is the fabric equivalent – rustic & glam.
Speaking of bling or lack thereof, I read a ‘spot on’ & funny article about Valentine’s Day. Check it out here.
Been enjoying some Olympics….but hooked on the new season of House of Cards. Do you watch it?
Now I remember where I was Monday!
Where were you?

p.s. Wherever you were, that was then this is now. Have a great weekend!!
