First of all, thank for bearing with me this last week.
I think the worst of it is over. I finally got all my prescriptions filled, and I think I’m finally feeling back to normal. Or at least as normal as I get.
This weekend was uneventful, yet quite enjoyable. The next few months are jam-packed with activities, so I wanted to take advantage of one last weekend with nothing to do.
Friday night, I found myself alone in my apartment, which is rare for me.
I gathered up the dogs and set out for a long walk on the boardwalk.
I go to the boardwalk almost daily, but usually in the morning or during my lunch break, so it was exciting for me to get a chance to see the sunset,
Since my boyfriend isn’t a fan of anything Curry, I decided to make myself a meal that I knew he wouldn’t enjoy.
It was literally a bag of stir fry vegetables and a jar of red curry sauce, but it was quite delicious and easy.
I attempted to start a new book, but as soon as I snuggled up with Stevie, sleep took over.
Saturday morning, Matt was out training for the MS150 (next weekend!) so I was left to my own devices for breakfast. I’m really a terrible cook, but I’ve found myself wanting to experiment as of late.
I attempted to make blueberry pancakes. I wouldn’t say they were exactly successful, but they were edible so I say that’s a win.
My friend Heidi and I headed out for a walk with the pups, and were excited to find a new pet.
Meet Jeff, the turtle.
Saturday afternoon I got to podcast with my bestest podcast pals, CJ and Chuy. Check out the newest episode of Mexican Mustache and Madam- up now at Darkives.com!
Then, Matt and I continued our search for the Best Burger in Austin, and found ourselves at Silo on 7th. We requested an outdoor table because the inside was quite loud, but soon found ourselves sitting in the rain.
Since we had already asked to moved from the inside to the porch, we were too embarrassed to ask to be moved again, so decided to suck it up.
The burger was quite good though. As were the fries. I requested cheese on mine, and that was the best decision I’d made in a while.
I spent the majority of Sunday sitting on my couch and wasting time on the internet, hanging out with my friend, and ogling at the cuteness of our new baby pet turtle.
In the evening Matt and I headed over to the Fusebox Festival in east Austin, which featured a performance by Forklift Danceworks called “The Trees of Govalle.” That. Was. Amazing.
This really deserves it’s own post, so I’ll try to get on that.
Until then, I’ll leave you with one of the many beautiful trees I saw at Govalle park.
Have a beautiful Monday, folks. Give a tree some love.
