HOOOLA my lovelies.
I’m really loving this long weekend. No no…I don’t think you can actually understand, how much I am LOVING this long weekend. My soul was craving some quiet, activity free days, beautiful running weather, time to bake, and all this and more was granted. I’m feeling wonderfully refreshed and blessed. (look at me rhyming)
You know the drill by now. I’m gonna get my listing on and celebrate the little and big accomplishments with Meg because she’s the awesome host of this link up.
Let’s do this thing.
-Finished the Oedipus Cycle. Wow…that was interesting. I won’t ruin it for you if you have yet to read it. Bring tissues.
-Ran in really hot weather on Tuesday and really awesome fall weather on Friday and Sunday. I’m pretty sure I’ll be running a half marathon in March, but I want to wait until around December to make my decision. My running schedule has been relaxed over the summer, and I’m ready for a challenge!
-Cooked Shakshuka for the first time. It was really good. If I made it again, I wouldn’t cook it for quite as long though. Have you ever made this recipe? I believe it is a Middle Eastern dish…
-Finished all my college applications!!!!!!! I just have to wait for transcripts and recommendation letters. This is such a huge relief. Now I’m silently dying inside while I wait for responses.
-Found a potato heart ❤ Quite the accomplishment.
-Grocery shopped on Wednesday. I found this life changing hummus from Hope Foods. It’s sriracha flavored. Yep, sriracha. Be still my heart.
-Used up my last jar of homemade tomato sauce 😦
-My big sister’s birthday was Monday, so per Kennedy family usual, we had a dinner of her meal of choice. Then my two sisters and I acted like three year olds and made mom worry because I almost passed out laughing. Good times.
-Lots of homework was done. I can’t remember all the specific assignments, and even if I could I would spare you the details because I imagine you really don’t care. It was mostly just a lot of reading. All this learning is kicking my butt and making me t.i.r.e.d.
-Look at these lovely purple potatoes. I found them at the farmer’s market a while ago, and I love the vibrant color. Pretty food makes me happy.
-Watched a movie with Kaden. Also while at her house, I had a fight with her couch. I was trying to unplug my phone charger, but the couch was really close to wall. Long story short, I got a large purple bruise and a wounded ego.
-Watched another movie with the parents called V for Vendetta. I thought it was really good. It’s a revolution/dystopian movie made several years ago, before dystopian movies were trendy.
Happy Monday to all! Enjoy your Labor Day BBQ’s and celebrations all my American peeps.
Bye loves ❤
So tell me…
Have you watched V for Vendetta?
Have you ever heard of/cooked shakshuka before?
