Wasn’t I just bitching that I wanted some inspirational resources about improving my writing? I opened my Reader this morning and found this: 60 Tips to Improve Your Non Fiction Writing
I’ve been dying to get back to doing some yoga and today’s Deal Ticket and Living Social Deal were both Yoga-centric. (Though neither really worked out for me, I thought it was kind of a coincidence!)
Lately I’ve been trying to sell Garrett on the idea of getting bikes. Not fancy bikes, just fun bikes — we LOVE riding bikes yet we don’t actually own bikes and I just think that’s ridiculous, hence my prodding. Today, I got an email from my old roommate that she is sending her old mountain bike up with her brother who is coming into town and he’s going to drop it off at my house! Hooray for giving away stuff you aren’t using!
Wanna join our bike gang? We are pretty fierce?
(This picture is actually a picture from a biking wine tour with friends and family in Sonoma and while I’m doing some asking I’d just like to say right now, Universe, that I’d like another one of those, ok?)
I’ve been having a bit of wanderlust but bemoaning the fact that everything costs SO! MUCH! MONEY! but it turns out I have to do a bit of traveling for work and Garrett and I may turn that into a long weekend in Yosemite. Also we are trying to plan sometime to go see his parents who live in New Mexico and all of a sudden it hit me — Southwest Roadtrip, maybe? A car rental, overnights with friends, and some downtime with parentals sound like a pretty affordable getaway, no? Plus I keep forgetting that I am going to Chicago in November! Well, not really forgetting, but now that it’s getting closer it just seems so exciting! Wanderlust, I will tame you.
It feels so nice when things in life just align, you know? Just wanted to take a minute to document my gratitude!
And of course brainstorm for some badass things to ask for — what do you wish the Universe would drop in your lap?
