Ahhh, Friday! Don’t you love Fridays? My main reason is because I know I can sleep in a bit later on Saturdays cuz there’s no school! I’ve been sleeping terribly this week so I’m hoping I can fall asleep before 2:30 AM tonight….
Anyhow, here are some of my favourites from this week!
Playing piano with J
I don’t play piano like I used to and when I pull out my old Chopin or Liszt, it’s kind of depressing at my lack of ability. (It’s not depressing enough to make me want to practice for 3 hours a day though….) I can still pull of Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star and The Wheels on the Bus, though, and that’s all that matters to J! He loves to play and sing along and always pronounces, “Again!” the second I finish. I set up my phone this week on video and loved seeing his little face while we were playing!
My Adidas Energy Boost Shoes
I was scared to go get new running shoes, but mine were full of holes and hurt my feet, so I knew I had no choice. I went out of my way to go to a new running store, Black Toe Running, and I wasn’t disappointed. I tried on a bunch of different brands and really liked the Adidas ones the best. Honestly, I was surprised. I was worried that when I ran on the road with them they wouldn’t be as good as I thought they were in the store, but I’ve had them for over a month now and I love them. My feet feel great, I haven’t gotten any blisters and my toes aren’t cramped. My feet are wider in the toes so I need a shoe with a decent toe box but that’s not too wide in the heel. These have so much give in the toe that I can move my toes freely which is exciting after having black toenails and then having my toenails fall off (I’ll spare you the pictures…) They came in bright pink, purple and black–obviously I went for black!
Scars by Colton Dixon
I am not a big American Idol watcher, and haven’t watched it in years (Simon should never have left….). I did watch the season with Colton Dixon though and was rooting for him to win (he didn’t…). The past few week I’ve been utilizing Apple Music a lot and have been listening to Colton’s albums. I have a few favourite songs, but today when I went for a run his song “Scars” came on and I immediately hit repeat. I’ve listened to it a million times already, but there have only been a handful of songs that have made me do repeated fist pumps in the air while running and this is one!
