Thursday Thoughts - some nights I wish that my lips could build a castle

1. Last night was the first time in quite a while that I fell into bed with not even the skeleton of a Thursday Thoughts post drafted and zero care about it. I was working late and my eyes were about to fall out of my head. So today's lunch is being spent writing Thursday Thoughts and painting nails (Zoya Sia). Excuse the background of the tiny vestibule that I won't actually finish until the spring.

2. This week has been weird - in the office two days in a row, working from the shore two days in a row, then off what is two days in a row but sandwiches the weekend. It's just been me and Bruce and Ben since Tuesday night. I spent much of Wednesday with my mother-in-law and my Dad and Carol, Aubrey, and the kids are coming tomorrow. 

3. When you work from the shore, you can do this after work. Or in between work really, I left at 6:45, spent about 45 minutes on the beach with the dogs, then got back to work until 10:30 last night. I'm so much more active here - walk the dogs multiple times per day including a long walk after work, riding my bike all over. Not to mention outdoor showers. All that results in more productive workdays too because my mindset is better. 

4. I saw this on the way home and pulled over and walked Bruce and Ben by to check it out. It made me sad, with all the rooms exposed and the sign all looking like an accident victim. I posted it on my shore instagram, hope you follow along there.

5. I went to the library Wednesday but have read zero books this week. Like not at all. I also got my car washed for the first time since March...I give zero shits about cars. The inside is full of sand and dog hair. This is my life.

6. In my ideal world, the sun sets at 8:30 pm and rises at 6:30 am. Can I talk to someone about that? I hate when we lose the light at night, but I love when seeing the sunrise from first light on means not getting up at 4:50 am.

7. Every day is an authoritative slide. Still people support this administration. ICE is the fucking Gestapo in America in 2019, full stop.

8.  I saw these earrings I really want. They're $34 and would replace the $30 studs I've been wearing for two years. But I hesitate because of the opal curse. Do you know/believe in it? When you aren't supposed to wear opals unless they are your birthstone? I think my mother told me this. That has led me to a wild goose chase on the internet re: gemstones and crystals this week. Hence the no reading.

9. Reminder: Stop amping yourself up about things you perceive you are behind on or are missing out on

10. Ecards.

What appears after the hyphen in Thursday Thoughts is a song lyric to whatever I'm listening to when I start to write the post. This week is Some Nights by Fun. I listen to this a lot
