on making me happy
We have had quite a bit of rainy weather around here for the last few days, and while we oh so desperately need it, I never find myself enjoying it. You see, for me, rain usually leads to nasty headaches and of course bad hair days and just the overall urge to climb back into bed and hide under the covers. Fortunately, I was able to combat this gloomy mood a bit with a few pick-me-ups:
1. Crepes – for lunch! We discovered a small shop that sells coffee and crepes in the area and decided to give it a try yesterday. While Glenwood had a healthier option of eggs and veggies, I just wanted yummy and dived into a strawberry and Nutella-filled crepe. I highly recommend this as a rainy day treat. It also got me thinking about wedding food. How delicious would crepes be at a wedding? Maybe a late night snack after a long evening of dancing? One word: yum.
2. Enjoying the fact that all this rain would hopefully give my car the much needed bath I have been unable to give it myself. Recently, everything outside has been coated in a nice shade of yellow-green due to all of the pollen – my car included. Thanks to the severe water shortage our area has been going through, car washing is out of the question. (Oh – and to that neighbor I spotted washing his car not so long ago – don’t think I didn’t see you. I think I snarled a bit as I walked past your house. Shame on you!)
3. Listening to a few select songs by Beirut. Over. And over.
4. Last but not least, finally getting my hands on a certain typeface by the name of Futura. Futura Small Caps that is. Around here, this is our idea of hot:
Sometimes, it really is the little things…
