(5) Things we love…#130

Posted in Things We Love

I only have myself to blame for over scheduling my time. Partly, it’s the life of the freelance, taking work when it comes, as inconvenient as it might be. But partly, it’s me, saying yes to all manners of things that are interesting and then end up piling up on each other. It’s also Spring, and I have come back to life, after a hermit Winter. So, if I can get to the end of Friday, I am planning a weekend of nothing much: dogs, yoga, books, mindless videos and general laziness. Starting with this post.

HammocksOne. A reminder on why laziness matters. Even from an economic standpoint.

Two. In California – where yesterday people wished each other Happy 4/20 – we are apt to taking things a bit too far. I have been doing yoga for 20 years, love what it does for my body but it is all becoming a bit too much. Weed yoga? Really? Hilarious read.

Three. How about waking up one morning and finding yourself in a giant spider web? That is what happened to one farmer in New Zealand.

Four. Tim Bengel makes art using sand and gold. Mesmerizing to watch. After these two minutes, you can spend another hour on YouTube watching him making portraits. An excellent way to waste time (via sofagirl).

Five. Possibly my dream. Taking a hike with 900 rescue dogs in Costa Rica. And then take one home.

  1. Hoping you were able to do all manner of “dogs, yoga, books, mindless videos and general laziness’ that could possibly fit in a weekend. ❤︎

    • Mostly. Also because I got stuck at home sick. Always a good excuse to do nothing.

  2. Già. speriamo che i francesi, domani, si comportino bene. Non riesco a vedere i video (non sono a casa), ma recupererò

    • Teniamo le dita inrociate. O, oltre alla Gran Bretagna, dovro’ aggiungere la Francia ai paesi dove non potro’ mai vivere.

    Sitting in Auckland airport lounge en route to Rome for an urgent matter I only had time to read about the spiders. Who knew?

    • I hope it’s nothing serious and you get to enjoy a bit of Rome. Good luck.
