Happy Friday Eve! This week seems to be flying by thanks to having Monday off. Does anyone else feel that way? Have a great day 🙂
The forecast called for about an inch of snow overnight so I was pretty surprised when I woke up and saw no snow on the ground. Somewhere between the time I turned away from the window, showered, dressed and ate breakfast, it snowed. The inch came down pretty quick! Although it did make driving near the farms kind of whimsical. Normally I don’t enjoy driving to work in the dark but if there’s a little snow and a slightly grey hue out then I’ll take it.
During lunch, I read more of “The Marriage Artist” while enjoying my usual lunch. Does anyone else eat the same thing during lunch at work? For me that’s a peanut butter sandwich, carrots, hummus and pretzels. I’m really enjoying this book so far! It follows a widower, Daniel, in the present day and his quest to figure out why his wife and her could be lover were found dead next to each other. I’m about 2/3 of the way through and can’t wait to see how it links to people in World War II Vienna. It’s definitely a book that takes some more time to read but I don’t mind that.
After work it was just me. Alex had a work event in Philly last night so I had some me time. I read on the couch, prepped for the next day and made dinner. I amped up my usual roasted potato dinner by having a glass of wine and some bread. I dipped the bread in olive oil with some pepper, parmesan cheese, and just a splash of balsamic. If you’ve never tried oil in bread with some balsamic vinegar, I recommend it. Total game changer. While I ate, I watched “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life” on Netflix.
Once I cleaned up from dinner, I decided to try a new face mask. While at Target on Sunday, I found a display for the brand Formula 10.0.6 near my face wash. This is a new to me brand and the packaging sucked me in since it was so colorful. The products looked nice and when I saw a clearance sticker on this face mask, I decided to give it a try. My skin felt so nice after and it had such a pleasant scent while on my face. I can’t wait to use the mask a few more times to see how my skin reacts and then look into more products the brand has. Alex got home shortly after I washed the mask off and we hung out a bit before heading to bed.
Question of the day: Do you have a go to meal when it’s just you for dinner?
