こんばんは。How’s it going?

Even though today is a dreaded Monday, mine was pretty good! I got a ton done at work, and then later on, I helped Bay make brownies for his school assignment. We haven’t tasted them yet, but they smell delicious! It was fun to help him measure, mix, and bake the goodies. Plus, he did all the dishes. 😄

In less-good news, I’ve been wearing a Fitbit for the past month or so, but I am going to stop. Basically, the pros do not outweigh the cons. It’s kind of uncomfortable, and the syncing with my phone is unreliable. Today it finally lost Bluetooth connection with my phone for good. I’ve spent an hour or so trying to troubleshoot it before deciding that the Fitbit was not enriching my life, by rather causing frustration and negativity. At first, seeing the data was interesting, but honestly, it’s the same day after day, and I don’t really need the tracker to tell me how many steps I’ve taken. I find that it’s enough to know if I’ve planked, how many squats I’ve done, or if I’ve spent time on the bike. And when I go running, I like to use Strava, whose data I do find interesting. I guess the Fitbit just isn’t for me.

Oh, here’s a photo of Yuzu and my glasses, just because. 😺👓

こんばんは。How’s it going?

The past couple days I’ve been a little under-the-weather, and getting a lot of sleep to regain my energy. It’s crazy but my workload is super-high and productivity is also increased. But maybe it’s taking a toll on my health? Or perhaps I caught the bug that’s been going around.

Anyway, here’s another pet photo. Today it’s our cat Yuzu. Meow!

A cold front came through this afternoon and dropped temperatures into the 50s… pretty chilly for Texas. 🌬️ But we’re nice and warm inside, feeling comfy and cozy, just like Lani in the photo above. 🐶

I hope you had a nice day!

🐱 I didn’t do much today! But I did finish a book called Out of Sorts. It was a fun, light read. Enjoyed it quite a bit! Enough so that I decided to buy another one of author Aurélie Valognes’ other books, Will You Ever Change.

I enjoy reading a lot, but can’t read for very long because I end up falling asleep no matter how good the book is. If you are are interested, here’s a list of the books I’ve read so far this year.

I hope you had a nice day!
