Working Out and Stuff (MuM)

So today I started my new thingy, where I wake up during the morning and work out before Alex wakes up. I like it! except for the bout of queasiness from trying to eat apples too quickly after everything. I think maybe I should either wait longer, or start out with the apples so I have a little blood sugar and I don’t get all weird and dizzy, and maybe lemon water instead of just water.
Anyway, I like it, and I feel more awake and significantly less grumpy-morning-kiery even though it’s all gloomy and stuff. Although right now I’m getting hit with a case of the 2’s, so I think after I’m done here I’m going to take my hazelnut iced coffee and do some painting with my photography lights. See if I can’t get some of those energy endorphins I had this morning and an hour ago back…
Also, perk: Phineas and Ferb in the morning. So that’s cool. I feel a bit more nimble in the morning too, and I started off with a round of easy Zen exercises to loosen up before I got into the work out portion of the game (yay for kinects!).
Tonks seems to like this too, as he gets fed faster. Which makes me wonder if maybe he wasn’t curling up beside me because I’m cute and warm in the mornings, but because he wanted me to wake up and feed him?….

warmth

FLEECE!
I have a fleece jacket, it’s soft and warm, and makes me soooo happy. Because now I can go outside with a jacket and I’m not still freezing. I’ve been wearing a track-ish jacket for a few years because it’s small enough to fit under other jackets, but it wasn’t providing quite enough warmth. So we went to old navy on Saturday and I got a warm fleece jacket with built in hand warmers. ^.^ My mood has gone up several notches over the last few days because of it (I like to be warm).
Saturday night we went to a concert with Alex’s family to see Elizabeth Von Trapp (yeah, the sound of music people). I wasn’t really sure what to expect, but her performance was amazing. She’s not a musician you could really sing along to, or with, but what she does with her voice and the words that she chooses in the songs that she writes is something that is more like painting than singing. She’s an illustrator with words and uses her voice like a painter uses a brush. I’ve never seen anything quite like that before, and it was amazing – completely unexpected,  so very artistic and stunning. I couldn’t help but feeling that she’s transcended the world of musicians and crossed a bridge and what she does and how she does it, is art. and it’s lovely.
Yesterday, Alex and I ended up finishing (sort of) a short we came up with the other day, and that was a blast. I love filming with him. We’re only able to do it on nights and weekends, but I love it. It’s fun to get out of our comfort zones and try new things (in the comfort and seclusion of our studio 😉 ) and learn what we’re good at and comfortable with and figure out new things. The longest thing is post-production and adding in things and cutting things together, which I can’t really help with (because it’s all on Alex’s computer) but I love seeing what it’s like at all the stages. ^.^

Brain Dead Monday

It’s Monday again! yay.
We had an exciting weekend, and I’m really tired. Putting words into the box is becoming a somewhat difficult task on the day I made up to be the easiest. 😛
Daily Post ideas, Monday
See? easy right? words just aren’t coming to me today. I haven’t completely woken up yet, apparently. So I guess I’ll just talk about the crazy fun weekend.
Saturday we went Apple Picking in Turner. I got 6 apples for $2.50 which is really cool. Sometime this week (or so) I’ll need to make an apple pie-ish thing, and then I can eat the other ones. ^.^
Yesterday, we finally went to the fair. We’ve been telling ourselves that we’d go to the fair for the last 3 years and we finally did. We had so much fun! We drove through some really pretty places to get there, the trees were turning and it was really beautiful. We rode on the ferris wheel and played a game and tried corn dogs for the first time, and got an Angry Birds plush.
The view from the ferris wheel was stunning, we rode twice – once after the sun set and once before, so I got to see the fair all lit up – and then we took home a big bag of cotton candy. Today my muscles are all weird, because we walked *all* day and parked the furthest possible distance from the entrance, and didn’t leave till 7:30 last night. But, I think we successfully walked off our corn dogs….at least I hope we did, because I’ll probably try to take it easy this afternoon.
