March was lovely! With the fog of the dreariness that is February finally gone, I too seemed to finally get out of this haze. With the longer and warmer days finally upon us, I found myself looking for reasons to actually go out and enjoy the sunshine. Brad and I have been walking a lot (as it is our preferred method of transportation), so it’s been nice to stretch our lazy muscles after the winter in the warmth of spring. And is it just me, or did March seem to fly by much more quickly than February?
Toward the end of the month, my uncle and aunt came to visit my cousin and his wife (who also live in town), so that meant that I got to spend an evening with some extended family. It was wonderful to see David and Margaret, and also my cousin Ryan and his wife Angie. Despite living a few streets apart, we don’t get to see each other much. We went out for Vietnamese food (my first time having it – so yummy), and some drinks afterward. I always tend to get a little tipsy whenever drinking with my Uncle David … wonder how that happens. ;)
Brad and I have been re-watching the Spider-Man movies, the ones with Tobey Maguire. This came about on Saint Patrick’s Day, of all days. I was all geared up to watch Boondock Saints, only to discover that Netflix didn’t have it! We decided to throw the first Spider-Man movie on since it also had Willem Dafoe in it. I’d forgotten how great those first two movies were! The second one was easily the best superhero movie (until Iron Man came along). We haven’t watched the third one yet, just because it’s actually horrible, but we will eventually, on the grounds that I need to watch it in order to feel that I’ve actually completed that re-watch.
Making: an effort to get to the gym more!
Cooking: Beer Mac and Cheese. So gooey, yummy, and easy to make!
Drinking: beer! Nothing tastes quite like warm weather like beer.
Reading: Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater. Part three in a four book series. The fourth book isn’t out yet, so I’ve been trying to put off reading this for as long as I could (I read the first two earlier this year), but I can’t wait any longer!
Wanting: some comfy shoes for walking around the city in (so Brad will stop making fun of me for wearing impractical shoes).
Looking: for different ways to style my hair. Curly hair can be limiting.
Playing: Katamari Forever. I’m not big on video games, but I do have a few that I enjoy, this being one of them!
Wasting: a lot less food. Food waste grinds my gears, and both Brad and I have been making a effort to plan our meals a bit more effectively so as to eliminate as much food waste as possible.
Wishing: that I could be in Halifax to celebrate my friends’ recent marriage.
Enjoying: evening walks with a warm drink in one hand, and Brad’s hand in the other.
Waiting: FOR CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE CIVIL WAR TO COME OUT. ONE MORE MONTH.
Liking: that the sun stays out past 4:00 pm now!
Wondering: what the secret to getting nail polish to not smudge is.
Loving: that the warmer weather seems to be becoming more frequent!
Hoping: that this pimple just under my chin will go away soon.
Marvelling: at my hair’s ability to be awesome one day and shitty the next.
Needing: more chocolate.
Smelling: faintly of summer weekends.
Wearing: these pants from R.W. & Co. They’re leggings that look like dress pants! WHAT. I’m getting a pair in every colour.
Following: my sister’s travels through Europe with her school (I’m only 75% jealous).
Noticing: my allergies aren’t acting up so much this spring (yet).
Knowing: that my allergies are just lurking in the corner.
Thinking: that I should probably buy a new bathing suit this year.
Bookmarking: videos from Vox’s YouTube channel to watch later.
Opening: the windows to let in some fresh air.
