Hello from the weekend!
Look at this peanut buttery, chocolatey waffle from Friday morning!
Friday after work, I ended up going out with some of my new co-workers before calling it a night and getting some late night sushi. I don’t know if it’s an LA thing or a where-Caitlin-goes-in-LA-thing but I’ve met some terrible customer service as of late. I ended up waiting a long time for my takeout and none of the waiters or waitresses seemed interested in making my experience a positive one. I’ve actually come up agains this quite a bit in my time here and not just directed at me. Hmm.
I ended up falling into a deep sleep on Friday night and slept in nice and late on Saturday. For breakfast, I made some pancakes, which I thought I photographed, but alas did not. They were yummy. It was a sad breakfast, however, thanks to the lack of half n half preventing me from having a cup of coffee to go along with it. Thus, I was goaded into grocery shopping.
Stocked up, it was time to make it official at my new gym and get in my daily dose of exercise. Shoulders, legs, and core were on the menu and I am feeling the effects of it still. It was a good workout, ending with some time on the bike.
After I ran some errands, a friend came over and we ended up talking about conspiracy theories and scaring ourselves. Casual Saturday evening. At least I baked cookies.
Sunday morning breakfast included eggs, an english muffin, and fruit.
After some pitter-pattering around, it was time for a run. No judgement zone, but I ran to the donut shop and back, which is no small trek, but still, I ate a yummy donut at the end of it so…
Post-run and donut excursion, it was time for the beach! I ended up taking the train over, which was super easy and fast. Yay!
During all my trips to Santa Monica, I’ve never actually been in the water (other than my toes) so it was time for a dip.
I took some time to dry off and write a bit in my notebook before I headed over to my friend’s house to watch the debate. Frightening. That’s all I can say about it. I said my peace in yesterday’s post, so hopefully, come November, we won’t have to worry about it anymore.
The rest of my Sunday included meal prep for the week, a quick dinner, and some quality writing and Netflix time. Hope all was well for you this weekend.
Happiest of Mondays!
