Let me set the scene for you…
You guys all know my skill, or lack of, when it comes to gardening. So what did we do? We bought a huge basil plant.
I know, I know….
But this guy was so full, lush and just screamed ‘buy me’! So we did.
We have been eating the delicious basil and watering it like good boys and girls. But things are starting to turn. I can feel it drifting towards the dark side. One branch has already expired. The others are leaning towards it. What do I do? It appears to get a lot of sunlight. I water it frequently. Basil lovers out there help! I am determined to keep this plant alive!
Will let you know how things go. In the mean time, check out this weeks Friday Favourites!
Favourite… Moment – Naps
The past two days I have taken afternoon naps. I tried to push against one yesterday but my body just went ‘nope, you are going to sleep young lady’! And if I am honest I feel like I needed them. Why does actually listening to our body feel so good? Oh wait…
Favourite… Feeling – All the feels
For my fellow creatives out there I definitely recommend reading Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert. It’s a slow starter but once I got into it I really felt inspired to be proud of what I do and to reflect positively towards my dreams.
Favourite… Purchase – New Nano 7’s
I couldn’t help but pick up these new Reebok CrossFit nanos when I spotted them on sale this week. First of all the colour is awesome (and I have only seen them in plain colours in Aus) and second of all they were on sale. For those who know me they could have probably guessed that the only reason I would buy myself new shoes is if they were on sale! Only worn them to CrossFit once but so far so good!
Favourite… Food/Drink – All the tea
I love coffee but only stick to one cup per day during the week and two at weekends. But sometimes you just need a hot drink, and this is where my tea love comes in! These are two of my favourites right now – chai with vanilla (I add a splash of milk) and green tea with mint. So comforting!
Updates – 5TTT + Episode 26 of the Chase the Red Grape Podcast
This weeks 5 top tips was a bit of a laugh looking at the 5 reasons being an adult sucks but at the same time is also pretty awesome.
Episode 26 of the podcast was about living in the present. We all hear that term but do we actually know what on earth it means or how to do it? Check out our conversation now on iTunes, Stitcher or via the website.
Favourite moment of training – 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10 Power Cleans and Front Squats
We did this metcon on Thursday and don’t ask me how but I suddenly got this massive whoosh of energy through me and dominated this workout! It was tough but fun and left me buzzing afterwards (in a good way!)
Weekend Plans – Saturday – Heading out to an old suburb of Perth to have a wonder around the local stores, drink coffee and have lunch. Then food prep and a movie with dinner. Sunday – Pancakes and newspapers. Coffee with a wonder around a local market. Podcasting then chill.
Have a fab weekend guys!
Do you think I should try and keep my plant alive or start frantically making pesto?
What kind of tea do you like?
Are there certain things that you only buy on sale?
