I have no idea if anyone cared about the last Things I’ve Been Enjoying Lately that I posted, but when I thought about it I realised that’s true for most of what I write here. Barefoot Beach Blonde is not exactly a bustling conversational area. But, I’ve never let that bother me before, so I’m doing another one: Things I’ve Been Enjoying Lately Vol.2.
1. It has FINALLY started to get a little cooler here in the mornings and evenings, so I am absolutely embracing that by drinking tea pretty much all the time. I’m feeling very lucky that my younger brother’s wonderful girlfriend happens to work at my favourite tea shop T2, and always hooks me up with my favourite teas when I need them. At the moment I’ve got a nice cup of Chai sitting next to me, but I’ve been basically mainlining Peppermint for the past week.
2. With the cooler weather I’ve been making an effort (not consistently by any means) to do more walking. I can usually drag myself out of bed a few mornings a week and go for a walk on the foreshore, which thankfully is just a few minutes from our house. If it was any further it would definitely be off the cards! The ocean looks so inviting it’s hard to deal with the fact that there are scary things in there that want to eat me! 🐊🐊🐊🐊🐊 I miss swimming!
3. I watched this video, called Denali, a few months ago and it really resonated with me. Then a couple of days ago I heard a song that really reminded me of it (actually it was the song at the end of the video It’s Only by ODESZA) and I found it again to re-watch. The video is just such a great piece of story-telling, and it really captures the amazing relationship that people have with their pets. Watching it made me miss my old dog so much, and I’d love to be able to spend some time with her again.
I managed to come up with more things last time, but that’s it for now folks. Hope your life is full of enjoyable things as well 🙂
