i don't know the exact breakdown, but i believe that at least half of you access this site via google reader. don't worry -- i'm totally fine with that, and i understand completely, since that is definitely my blog/feed management tool of choice as well!
i am sure it is probably packed with features that i don't use, but one that i do enjoy is the ability to star things so i have my own supercharged blogroll of sorts -- a collection of posts i want to see again. some of these are recipes i want to make; others are just bits of wisdom and philosophy i know i'll want to write about and share with you all!
some link ♥
i could blather on about my pager [oddly silent, actually!] or the viral URI that seems to be coming on [i love you too, dirty gross hospital] but i believe those topics are a BIT overplayed.
instead, some fresh insights for you from the starred archives on this lovely wednesday AM!
✰ 10 effective ways to stay calm at work as usual, the amazing angeliki has come up with another great post [my favorite tips? #1, #5, and #7!]. she also just ran her first marathon -- tell her congrats!
✰ at the top of my 'to-bake' list: peanut butter sandwich bread from eat live run. [wondering if and when jenna will ever change the site's name!].
✰ another modern philospher: girl in maths does a super-cool "spotlight on a website series" [okay, maybe i'm biased :) ] and i was excited to discover scott young's great blog at her suggestion.
to me, his posts are a blend of cal newport [of study hacks fame] and leo babauta [who, as you know, is like my favorite guru ever, and the writer behind zen habits].
✰ moving series from the unclutterer -- how timely!
workout: 3.2ish mile run outside. my current habit is to listen to a philosopher's notes for the first part of my run or AM workout -- definitely gets me into a positive mood for the day.
real simple this week's meals all come from the real simple website, and yesterday's polenta pizza was so good i was inspired to hire a professional photographer to take a shot of the finished product:
in reality, though, i thought this recipe got 5 stars for easiness but i am actually not the hugest polenta fan. josh liked it but he's usually pretty easy to please.
detox report: um. remember the above allusion to said virus? i came home from work yesterday feeling like (#&@!* and could not bring myself to do yoga or meditate, and then i promptly opened my laptop for soothing, mindless internet browsing. but today is a new day! and to my credit, i did sleep 8 hours and did remain added-sugar-and-alcohol-free!
