Come To My Senses: June 22

  • Sight: I went Clemson for Father’s Day, so obviously I got to see my dad. But I also got to visit with some extended family on my step mom’s side. [Step] Grandparents from Clemson. A [step] aunt from Atlanta. A whole passel of [step] New Mexicans. Whatever the husband of a [step] cousin is? Maybe that’s just another cousin? Either way, it was good to see some people I don’t get to visit with that regularly.
  • Sound: I got a random text from my brother this week, asking when The Band Perry turned into a Taylor Swift wannabe. Having no clue what he was talking about, I hit up the Youtubes and stumbled over this little gem from 2017 that I somehow missed. And unlike my brother, if The Band Perry wants to get stuck on the bridge between country and pop, I’m 100% here for it. I love this song.
Who knows what we’re missing
It’s our world, it’s our business
Here I am, I’m with you on a mission
  • Taste: I feel like I need a way to spice up this bullet point. Or branch out a little more. Saturday, I made a couple batches of cookies for the Clemson trip. The strawberry banana shortcake recipe was a new one. I wasn’t a huge fan. They’re awful after a day or two, so doubtful that makes its way into the rotation. The double chocolate recipe was a familiar one and was a hit, as always. The dad, step mom, and I hit up Outback on Sunday for Father’s Day. I went with the Victoria Filet and mashed potatoes. I skipped out on Lunch Roulette [because of meetings] and JJ’s [because I don’t want to be fat] on Tuesday. Insert shocked baby face gif here. But then I went to JJ’s on Wednesday. Because maybe being fat isn’t that bad. Finally, on Thursday, I switched it up and went to Just Fresh for a chicken Caesar wrap and strawberry banana smoothie. Damn hippie!

    Just kidding. It was probably full of sugar.
  • Feel: Hot. So, so hot! It started cracking 95+ degrees this week. I know summer’s just starting and it’s going to get worse. But just let me have it, this week. Part of it is that I hate being cooped up at work all day, so I try to grab lunch outside to take a walk every day. Part of it is that I have long hair in the summer. Part of it is just because I’m a whiner. Either way, I hate the heat.

It’s a lay-low kind of weekend. I’m working from home today [praise hands emoji], so hopefully that sets up for a quiet start to the weekend. Be smart. Be safe. Don’t do drugs. Enjoy your weekend.

    Whiner….I would have you working in the yard, like your old parents. And The Band Perry DOES sound like Taylor Swift. And I saw a new chocolate chip cookie recipe that I might send you. #cookiebachelor
