Previous evening: a Rowdy Uncle beer, from Insight Brewing, break up with Bjork, to enhance the carnitas and fried fish tacos from the takeout area by our dwelling that have been laced to perfection with lime and salsa verde.

This morning I opened the door to permit Sage out, and I felt a wonderful wave of warmth already at 6am, and I know some of you love to loathe, but guy, sensation that sticky air was like obtaining a significant hug. My shoulders relaxed, I took a deep breath, and felt the very little sweat droplets dripping from glass of iced espresso to my bare ft, and put on my shorts and t-shirt to go out for a hazy, sweaty, early early morning run with Solvi in her tiny sparkly coronary heart sunglasses, and just all the yeses for this.
I dwell for summer months.

I purchased a Minneapolis Summer time Passport for, effectively, for Bjork, for our anniversary, but technically it is for equally of us simply because it is a guide for two-for-one offers that only works with two men and women. What do they connect with it yet again? A present for the giver? A person of These kinda gifts.
Ordinarily my issue with a whole lot of these deal things is that you get them and then you’re like… eh… I essentially never want to go to any of these locations.
But this a single has an awesome list of spots for us to test off the checklist this summer in Minneapolis and St. Paul: Revival, Hola Arepa, Lat14, Lyn65, The Hewing, Hello-Lo Diner, Birchwood Cafe, The LynHall, Nico’s Tacos, Pajarito, Tattersall, Black Coffee and Waffle, and additional.
Also: Hai Hai, which is what is pictured over! Balinese chicken thigh with coconut rice, Thai basily gin and tonics, larb with so a lot chile, lime, and lemongrass that it really should be worn as perfume. SO YUMMY.

The Iced Coffee Consume That Is Generating Me Swoon
Alright. Right here we go.
- Fill half a mug / pitcher / no matter what you want with chilly brew.
- Fill the OTHER 50 percent of your mug / pitcher / and so on. with oat milk. Oat milk is critical. The flavor and creaminess are excellent for iced espresso, far better than any other nondairy milk I have tried.
- Include a rapid but continuous pour of maple syrup, and a little sprinkle of sea salt.
- Convey to ME THIS Is not THE Most effective Summer months Consume At any time. I dare you.
How I Make Chilly Brew: The espresso fans might have opinions for me but I am zero percent treasured about how I make cold brew. I just use this thing* and I fill the middle filter piece with ground (decaf) coffee, and then fill the pitcher with drinking water. I enable it sit in the fridge for 24 hrs (probably 18, perhaps 36 if I forget – told you, not important) and then I get the filter out. The close.
Office Transform Update! Whee!

Again to Audiobooks
It is been a yr or so, but I restarted my Audible subscription this month! Yay!
15 minute commute x 2 x 4 days / 7 days = 2 several hours / 7 days = 1 (audio)e-book each individual two months! Not terrible, thinking about I have browse exactly… zero textbooks in the last 6 months.
Now I’m reading through the e book Digital Minimalism which, actually, is tremendous monotonous, so I’m not necessarily recommending it as, like, a entertaining beach front study. But it IS actually fascinating and assumed-provoking and challenging in a great way for me.
What textbooks are you looking at this summer time? Monotonous types are ok, exciting kinds are better.
Sage would like you to know that she satisfied a furry very little anyone at the park the other day WHO Comes about TO BE HER DOGGO TWIN! Seem at these two!
From time to time it’s a lot easier to just keep household (okay fantastic it is Often a lot easier to just continue to be dwelling), but Sage claims: get out there! You can do it. Sometimes it is terrifying, but remain open, continue to be brave, test the new point, go to the new place… since glance at who you may possibly obtain when you venture out into the wild.
