Who else love afternoon tea?
Since a young age I enjoy having a green tea in the after noon, but today I love any type of tea! And if it comes with snacks even better
This are 2 hazelnut chocolate bliss balls and they are delicious!!
Felt a bit like closing the world out for a while so I made some fig preserves. I then picked more for another batch. Somethings I always forget about fig trees: 1). They freaking stink when they are wet. 2) figs won’t ripen after picking so you have to wait till they are PERFECT -which is impossible at times bc they go from perfect to split open in like 2 blinks. 😂😂. . 3) they ferment when over ripe which attracts every beetle, butterfly and wasp on the property. So I have to spray the tree first which takes me back to 1. And 4). Something on the leaves makes my skin itch like a MTHR- FKR. 😜🤪. Good thing I like these little f-ers bc I was not feeling like Frolicking Freda the Fig picker today. The preserves came out great though. #foodie#food#homemade#cooking#kitchenqueen#findingmypeaceagain#quiettime#stayingbusy#figs#preserves
After an early morning 20 mile #bike 🚴♀️ ride, a run 🏃♀️ to the @goldsgym#venice w/ a back, biceps 💪 & abs #workout , I then met a friend for #coffee@urthcaffe
I actually had a chai ☕️ latte. I love ❤️ the #latteart
Then a quick run to the computer 💻 repair store because my laptop wasn’t charging. Then I grabbed a #juice at my favorite @wholefoods in Venice
While at coffee, I spoke with my friend Tom, who helped me write, produce & edit my first #cookingshow pilot
Tom & I talked about what it’s like to work from home & how his girlfriend has a standing desk at work but rarely uses it because it doesn’t easily convert. She states, “too many things to move during the conversion.”
Tom suggested she START her day standing & then move to a seated position once she’s just DONE ✅ standing.
I thought this was a great idea. I built a standing desk and fit it under my loft bed. But when I stand, my head nearly hits the underside of the bed, and I feel like I need to keep my head down.
Then I thought about the makeshift cooking shelf I made for my #cooking demos.
It’s just a piece of wood painted w/ chalkboard paint that I use in my demos.
I place the wood with one end on the edge of the counter & the other on the table I built, and voila, I have a workstation.
Normally I sit on my fluffy, comfy futon to work, & I end up taking a 1-2 hour nap at some point because I am just TOO comfy cozy.
As someone who rode 20 miles before most people get out of bed, I can tell you, that being uncomfortable is not something I fear. I embrace it.
So now I’m standing, feeling surprisingly wide awake. Prepared to put my full energy into my work. Plus you burn like 10 more calories an hour. Ok. It’s actually 6 more calories an hour for women & 11.4 calories an hour for men. But it all adds up. Plus you ENGAGE #muscle not engaged while sitting: core #abs, lower back, #glutes , shins (tibialis anterior) & I would think, all muscles of your lower legs. Anyway, you’ll feel it when you do it. So just do it. Stand & work. Be uncomfortable. It’s good for you! 😊
