I’m not sure if I am great at resting. Given that I work from home, alone, every day means that I get plenty of quiet time. So once my work day is done at 3 pm, I have a couple hours to get stuff done. I typically run on my lunch break, so the afternoons are errands, grocery shopping, and dinner prep. Jeff works until 5 or 6 depending on the day, so it makes sense that week days I do the dinner cooking.
On the weekend I don’t typically cook. Jeff has the time and loves to grill, so I don’t meal plan the weekends much. But there are lots of bakeries/coffee shops that tempt my eyes on instagram. And given that Jeff will be moving “out west” aka Delano, I want to check out these delicious goodies while they are still a reasonably easy drive away.
Yesterday I went to Cafe Ceres and ordered the croissant sandwich to enjoy right away, and the pistachio croissant to enjoy Sunday morning. Everything was delicious, and I think my favorite thing about the pandemic is that more small places have online ordering. I like being able to see all my options online, pay, and pick up without standing in line or having an uncertain amount of time to wait. Plus, the latte I got was the perfect drinking temperature when I picked it up.
After I enjoyed my latte and croissant sandwich I had the fuel I needed to empty out my bathroom cabinet and reorganize it. I found some costume jewelry from college that is ready to be donated, and found a better way to put things away. Next on my “to be cleaned” list is the kitchen cabinets. I own more tea then I will ever drink, and my collection of plastic bags is overgrowing and needs to be recycled.
Are you good at resting?
What has been the good thing about the pandemic for you?
Do you regularly clean/organize/purge your house or do you wait until its a disaster before attempting to fix it?
