This week brought the first days filled with sunshine and what everyone calls “mild” temperatures. It’s really still quite cold and three months from now 16 degrees will seem positively frosty but for now I couldn’t be more thrilled. Well, I might be more thrilled if we had 25 degrees and burning sun but I am trying to stay positive here.
It’s Friday now and to celebrate the upcoming weekend I give you my list of things & things:
– I am a fan of snacking at all hours of the day. And night. Since that isn’t necessarily healthy but very addictive I am trying to limit myself to good snacks. My number one snack is roasted and salted cashew nuts. I am aware that fists full of nuts are not exactly low calorie but it HAS to be better than bags full or crisps or bars of chocolate, surely?
– I have finally reached a stage where I’ll soon need to buy a new laptop. What can I say, I’ve always used Macs and therefore consider buying a new one something to look forward to. Like Christmas, but more expensive. My main workhorse will be a desktop computer at home so I’ll need something light but somewhat powerful to take with me. I can’t help touching and lifting (it really is light!) the MacBook Air whenever I see it in a shop. Can anyone out there advise me on whether it makes sense for graphic/photo/video processing? Or should I stick with a 15″ MacBook Pro for this?
– In order to get properly fit this year I’ve decided to go back to Bikram yoga after one year of abstinence. Within the first 5 minutes of my class last week I remembered why I’ve stopped going in the first place. But once I got over the 36 hour stiff-muscle-painful-period (there was lots of groaning and whimpering involved) I actually went to another class and now hope that I can stick with going back on a more regular level.
– During the last month I’ve had several reminders about what’s important in life. I am working on being more aware and enjoying what I have. Like this old photo of my dad’s ship in a bottle. I took this years ago out of boredom and only just rediscovered it.
