I've got mail

Happy Tuesday, y'all!

Yesterday was a pretty good day.  I planned on doing a holiday photo shoot but we awoke to storms all morning and then overcast skies so the light wasn't going to cooperate.  So I did what any woman obsessed with a band just over a decade her junior would do and blasted The 1975 (affiliate link)  most of the day.  I was happy to find Amazon streams the deluxe version of the first album which includes the original EP's. 

After work, the Mr dropped off a return for me and then took both cars up the street to get the oil changed.  (Reminder for those of you putting it off!  ;-)  )  So that's another thing off the check list.  

He also dropped off the mail that arrived for me.  I got not one but two cards from friends for no reason at all!  That really gave me the warm squishies inside.  It's funny but seeing the handwriting from the one from the guy instantly brought back good memories because it reminded me of postcards he used to send me when I was away for the summer or silly letters when I was in high school.  Cards are rare from him these days so I definitely make sure I keep them!  The funny thing is I sent out a card for no reason to the girl I got one from yesterday!  Great minds think alike!

It was time to get down to business.  We did a Fitness Blender barre workout and I was very careful when I was doing it because it's very leg centric.  I also got some pulsating demon knot that acted up right before we started so I rolled it and hoped for the best.  Hopefully I'm not paying for it today...the Mr was a few hours afterward.  We had dinner...

Mahi with orange zest, spinach carrot polenta and grilled zucchini.

Then we watched The Sweetest Thing (Unrated Edition of course!)  (affiliate link) because I was in the mood to laugh.  That one always does it for me for some reason.  I guess I just like to see ladies being the crude ones and I know every word to the Penis Song...which I sang.

I iced mah foot and mounted some Christmas pictures I printed out since I got my pack of 10 mats in the mail.  I told you...I'm getting a jump on it and yes, I'm listening to Christmas music.  Hee hee   We rounded off the evening with Christmas bowl of smoking bishop...err, coconut mac nut tea.

When was the last time you sent or received a card for the heck of it?

  1. If the 1975 ever decided to do a Christmas album I think your head would explode with excitement. It was nice to open the mailbox and see cards like that. It happens so rarely now that it makes it that much more special when it does happen.

  2. I just sent a "thinking of you" card to a friend of mine that I don't get to talk to that often. And I got a card a couple of weeks ago from a friend with the nicest message written inside it that brought tears to my eyes. I didn't see that one coming and it really lifted my spirits. I used to be the "Card Queen" but I've backed off quite a bit, mostly because I don't keep in contact with as many people as before (due to job changes). I did buy some really pretty cards from Current that are so simple, but drew my eye. I like them even better in person than online, so I was happy to get 'em. I have a friend who had 2 black cats and trying to find cards with black cats that are not Halloween related is so hard! They have cards for everything, but rarely a black cat one.

    Your dinner looks scrumptious! Yum!
