“Set your mind on God’s kingdom and his justice before everything else, and all the rest will come to you, as well. So do not be anxious about tomorrow; tomorrow will look after itself. Each day has troubles of its own.”
I tell you, this computer makes it very difficult to write a blog post–it gets very cranky and then I have to make sure to breathe or I get so irrationally irritated that I risk slamming it shut and stomping around. That being said, I’ve gathered some things that brought me joy this week–because that is what we all need to focus on–finding joy in our lives.
–My friend Jenn and I are going to see this exhibit tonight.
–It’s very strange, but they put a new statue in by Lincoln Center and it looks just like me!
–I’m glad there is now scientific evidence to back up my hatred of the open workspace in my office. I’d offer to sell my soul for an office, but I don’t think my employer is interested.
–And how cute are these shoes?
I feel betrayed by the social medias that it wasn’t until I was at home last night that I learned it was National Margarita Day (which I guess isn’t Cinco de Mayo). Sigh. I didn’t have a marg last night. I did, however, begin reorganizing my life after the whirlwind that was my trip to Denver. I realized that I never took a pic with the bride (aside from this gem) and basically all of my pictures ended up on insta. It was a lovely, joyful weekend and I felt very #blessed to be a part of it.
People have really been making me crazy, lately. Twitter is a total trigger for me. Like, I can’t even go on it–which makes me feel very cut off from knowing what is going on–but also much more calm. Dilemma!! Regardless, I’m off for a four-day weekend in Denver tomorrow to celebrate my dear friend Liz’s wedding. It will be a busy weekend–the bridal party received a production schedule that begins at 6p on Friday night and wraps after brunch on Monday morning. I love it. I’m excited to see old friends (and spend a lot of time with New York friends that I never see) and of course to toast Liz and Brenton. Let’s raise a glass!
New York was a slushy mess this weekend. I had a ton of errands to run on Sunday and, of course, OF COURSE, it was sleeting. I still accomplished what I set out to do–but I did not look my best. I also watched at least 4 of the Lori Loughlin Garage Sale Murder mystery movies on Hallmark Movies & Murders channel. Yes, that’s a thing. As with most things I enjoy these days, the movies aren’t very good, but they are a pleasant escape. And now it is Monday again–a short week for me–I’ve got mad packing and planning to do for my trip to Denver on Friday.
Aside from being forced to go into work when the Mayor said to stay indoors, I maintained a pretty positive attitude this week. It must be the green smoothies. I had a shoot with a duck, a former co-worker, and I turned a contentious interview into comedy. High fives all around. Next week, I travel to Denver for my dear friend Liz’s wedding–so I’m keeping this weekend low key. I need to think carefully about packing and I’m in desperate need of a trip to the eyebrow threading place. Like I said, high fives all around.
Because I work for a company with managers who’ve never managed before, I had to go to work on this snowy, snowy day. Being the dutiful employee that I am, I trudged through the snow to the subway and then magically emerged in my place of employment (my building connects to Rock Center through a maze of strange but handy tunnels) ON TIME and with my morning green smoothie. Feast your eyes on a pretty snowfall in NYC (before it turns into sludge in a few hours). xo.
