On Tuesdays I get to go into work at 11. And since I'm pretty used to waking up around 7 on week days, I really look forward to my long Tuesday mornings. I thought I'd share with you what I've done today so far, and what I have plans to do!
I woke up at 7:15 and after getting a pot of coffee going, I made myself get in the shower right away, so my hair would have time to air dry. But what I really wanted to do was crawl up with my laptop and catch up on my Bloglovin'! Lately, I don't feel like washing my hair every morning, but know that if I don't, by the early afternoon, my entire body just feels greasy and dirty. It's weird, I usually love showering but lately, it's just something I have to do. I think I got into the habit of showering in the afternoons this summer and miss it. Wouldn't that be great? If you could take a shower at work at around 2:00? I bet it would get rid of any post lunch tiredness and sweets and caffeine cravings. If only our society was more civilized!
After my shower, I got right back into my pj's because now is the time for laptop lounging with coffee. Plus I wore my flannel pj's last night and was not ready to give them up just yet. Hooray for cool fall mornings and nights!
My bloglovin' was a tad overwhelming, with over 80 unread posts but I clicked around, read my faves and tried to comment as much as I could. I got through about half when I decided I needed a break and my hair was practically dry anyway. So into the bathroom for Heidi braid time!
For me, the easiest way to do my hair like this is when it is clean and damp. I want it to be almost dry, but a little dampness allows for tighter braids and more bobby pin grippage. That's my secret tip! Lol.
Still in my pj's, it was now time for breakfast. Another cool morning favorite, Bob's Red Mill hot cereal with a tablespoon or so of almond butter and some frozen strawberries. So good. So filling. And so healthy. Yay!
I should also mention, that Alex and I listened to Jim O'Rourke's album, Eureka all morning. It is perfect morning music and will even inspire some impromptu dance parties while you're waiting for your hot cereal to become hot.
And now it's 9:00 and I still have an hour or so before I have to leave for work! My plan is to get dressed, tidy up the apartment and read my book.
How was your morning, Lovelies? I hope you had a good one. I know mornings can be hectic most of the time. Tell me about yours in the comments! Crazy commute? Delicious breakfast? Cute outfit success? Lots of sleep, or not enough? I really want to know! And I hope you all have a fabulous day.
