I’ve been working a LOT on the blog lately. Organizing my ideas, schedules, and to-dos in Basecamp -a cloud-based project management platform. It’s a service I’ve used for my day job AND my 20th high school reunion. Basecamp keeps my life in order. I just wish it could make me do a bicep curl or two. And, perhaps, a squat.
From a home standpoint, we’ve nested quite nicely into our townhome. But the walls in our house belong in a nudist resort. They’re naked. No paint. No artwork. Naked. The boring kind of naked. The first paint job to tackle is the master bedroom – choose paint colors, test them, agonize over options but choose one, cover all the things with tarps and then just paint, paint, paint.
“Greige” is a thing. My rug is also “greige” due to the need for a deep cleaning.
My parents have been snowbirding in Florida to get away from the harsh Maine winters. I haven’t lived within driving distance of my parents in over 20 years. Since January, we have been able to spend several weekends together including their 50th Anniversary. It’s been the BEST time. I am so sad to see them go, but can’t wait for them to snowbird in the Sunshine State later this year.
I had a Lady Parlor Happy Hour on Monday featuring Cline Chardonnay. I started buying their wine many moons ago and haven’t stopped. I tend to prefer no-to-mid oak flavors in my Chard, so Cline fits my wine-teria. <—I know…not a word. Grammarly…just work with me here.
I always envisioned Work, Play, and Chardonnay as a place where I explore the never-ending quest for work/play balance. I think I #nailedit with balance this week.
By the way…our happy hour has come to an end. We just settled the check, gave each other hugs and promised to talk soon.
How did you Work, Play and Chardonnay this week? What do you do to keep your work and play on an even keel?
Work Hard. Play Hard. Drink Chard.
P.S. I’m going to make “wine-teria” happen. Kind of like “fetch”.
