How do you know it’s summer in Iowa? Well, I just spent 30 minutes cutting up kale, zucchini, summer squash, potatoes, onions, and watermelon. Tim is grilling the potatoes and onions (check me out on Instagram for picture proof), and the rest of the menagerie is going into the fridge for eatin’ later on. We joined a CSA this summer, and several batches of wilted greens and shriveled squash has taught me that if I don’t cut up the veggies IMMEDIATELY, they are a lost cause.
It’s amazing that I am actually accomplishing anything today. We returned home from Fort Collins, Co last night around 8:30PM, so today is our recup day. Does everyone need a recup day after vacation, or is that just me? Regardless, I did some Heather self-care today to prepare myself for my strenuous one-day work week tomorrow. Self-care for me looks like rolling out my abdominals with the Corgeous ball, taking an epsom salt bath, and listening to the Design of the Body podcast whilst walking along Duck Creek. Oh, and shopping online. 🙂 We didn’t get to do much shopping in Ft Collins, so I made up for it once I got home.
If you are like me, you are always interested in what other people are buying, so I will fill you in on the details. For the past several months I have been looking for a wristlet that will fit the essentials – cards, ID, phone, chapstick, pen, and keys. My sister-in-law introduced to me to Haiku. I really like their designs and their philosophy, so I ordered the Stride wristlet. I will let you know what I think once I receive it and put it through its paces. I know you are on pins and needles.
I’m going to another Yoga Tune Up® class next week – Breath and Bliss, taught by Jill Miller. We are supposed to bring our own yoga mats, but I don’t want to travel with my full size Manduka (although I totally love it), so I bought the travel version. It’s so light and thin that you can fold it up! Hopefully it works well.
I also bought 3 different versions of wire-free bras. I love underwires, but some experts say they can cause a variety of issues, so I am widening my horizons and checking out some wire-free bras from Wacoal. You can find a TON of wire-free options at Kohl’s and Target, but I tried on TEN different ones today, and they all gave me wide, pointy boobs. Boo to wide, pointy boobs. Wacoal bras are pricey, but they last forever, and they give a great shape. Hopefully that hold true for their non-underwire versions.
That is my day back. Riveting, isn’t it!?
