A Well-Spent Sunday


I’m hoping this is true, because the thought of waking up early for work tomorrow is daunting right now. I have had a pretty restful Sunday though. In fact, my whole weekend has been quite good. Friday after work, some of my fellow interns and I took in a baseball game at Chase Field. We won (and by we, I mean Arizona’s team, because come on, I don’t have much of a vested interest here) and were treated to a fireworks display. And then, like a real 20-something, I joined them for drinks. Yesterday, we celebrated Father’s Day since my dad just got back from Israel. The celebrations included a rousing game of Cards Against Humanity, dinner at The Breadfruit, and blueberry pie.

But hopefully today will get me though the whole week. This morning over breakfast, Domenico and I devised a list of everything we want to do together this summer. I realize that the summer is almost halfway over, but I really don’t want to squander the second half. Some of the highlights from our list include getting waffles from Waffle Love, seeing a movie at the Pollack Theater and FilmBar, watching all the Star Wars movies (for the first time for me), visiting a really cool costume exhibit at the Phoenix Art Museum, taking a weekend trip to Tucson, and going on a night hike. We then took a little walk down to the neighborhood Goodwill. I hadn’t been thrifting in a while and I came across some good finds. My purchases: a vintage, knitted green sweater; a lacy maxi dress, and a straw cloche hat. I think this means I’m going to have to start wearing maxi dresses and hats.

Next, we went to The Street for some boba. I ordered a chai but my choice for next time will be the coconut taro milk smoothie. We wandered through the Asian market next door while we sipped our tea, and I picked up a few things to make veggie sushi this week. I spent the rest of the day doing grown-up Sunday chores like cleaning the house and doing the laundry before settling in with a few movies and and magazines. Bonus: I’m almost done knitting this seahorse, the third installment in my knitted sea creature series. More on that later.

Here’s to a content week!

    Sounds like the perfect Sunday! I hope I can crash some of those summer plans, because all of that sounds wonderful. I actually just went to Waffle Love this morning (it was at the Orange Patch) and it was pretty tasty!
