Started work on my Little Free Library project this evening. Trying to make it all using stuff we already have. Started with a piece of aluminum diamond plate already bent to a perfect shape. Made shelves, roof, and floor from leftover wood from our current underpinning improvements. The piano hinge came in a mix of woodworking supplies we bought as a lot. Will update tomorrow with our next bit of progress. #littlefreelibrary#woodworking#wood#aluminum#familyproject#workinprogress
Here’s the deal guys. You see me posting about working out or drinking my daily nutrition shakes and making healthier choices, but I’m CLEARLY no expert. Wasn’t I just on here talking about nachos for dinner? 🤦🏻♀️
We’re all figuring this out together. What I do know is that I’ve never stuck with something this long (4 months of working out every day woop woop!), I’ve never had this much energy, and I’ve never felt this good about myself.
I needed a push to get going and to stay on track, because starting is the hardest part. If you need a push too, message me! I can help 😬
När man springer har man bara en fot i marken åt gången. Därför känns det logiskt att köra styrka med ett ben i taget. Marklyft på ett ben är perfekt. I dag blev det med hantel och kettlebell. Funkar lika bra med stång. Detta följs av en återhämtande promenad/jogg till jobbet. #kullamannen100miles
I’m over 40 (this September will be my #theanswertolifetheuniverseandeverything ) so I don’t do selfies. And despite the commitment having been made yesterday - permanently - I’m still a little sheepish about sharing my #workinprogress ness. But tonight, watching the wings on one of the birds that now shares my body move as I move, I’m just utterly smitten with my new constant company. And appreciative of @jimmy_the_saintt for his expertise (and pleasant company). When we were on the #steampacket ferry from the Isle of Man to Belfast, we upgraded to premium seats and gazed out at the sunset for what felt like hours. I casually watched a pair of birds break the wind in front of the ferry, lilting along off the bow. My first, hopeful and unrealistic thought was “albatross?” An aside: one of my favorite books, from which you can draw a direct line from where I was when it came into my life
in 2007, practicing divorce law, in a mediation CLE, learning about conflict styles, and conflict resolution, and realizing that my nearly estranged first marriage was going to wind up in divorce within a matter of months
to today, is #theeyeofthealbatross by @csafina . Because living things need something to push off of.
Back to 2018. Honeymooning. Husband. Happy.
They were Northern Gannets.
Somewhere I got the idea (that I don’t care to fact check too thoroughly) that mating pairs of Northern Gannets range independently covering large swaths of territory, and then return to their partner at their mating grounds for the mating season. They are incredible survivors - a species of “least concern” when so many others are endangered. They are incredible, ruthless predators and hearty survivors. Or at least, that’s my story.
I lost the pictures I took of the birds and the sunset and the water and the sky a week or two ago thanks to an iPhone backup glitch... but now I have a memento of that moment I get to carry with me forever. #workinprogresstattoo#newlyweds#sohappy#tattoo#carlsafina
Doing measurements on Monday at the 3 month mark, but here’s a comparison from 2 months ago to now, wearing the same shirt and similar pose. Hoping to see some progress in measurements since the scale isn’t moving! #fitmom#workinprogress#progresspics
I've had these wood slices sitting on my table for quite a while. I finally busted them out. Not sure where my acrylics are so experimenting with watercolors and micron pens while listening to Aimee Mann. Wish me luck! #workinprogress
