Breakfast at home

Twisted my ankle last week, which meant a couple of days of house arrest till it heals.
In those days Ned and I skipped our regular tradition of breakfast out and instead had breakfast at home.
after 2 days of not eating out we both noticed a lot less craving for sugary fatty food, less hunger in general and feeling overall much better.

Talking about it we realized that what we like most about the eating breakfast out is the leisure of sitting and talking, being out of the house and interacting with people, and spending time with each other away from the computers and the chores at home.

We are going to try and find new ways to have all those things in a not-related-to-food ways.

I don't know if it'll last or not, but I do know that after a big salad and a slice of bread, I'm feeling more energetic and calm then after a grill cheese sandwich or cornbread and egg hash.

Note to self

Give voice to unspoken fears.

Big shadows become smaller when you take them out to the light.

Urban nature


We woke up this morning from a bird chipping, it took me a minute to figure out it was louder then usual, yes, it got into our apartment. Our upstairs neighbor decided to put a bird feeder outside her window a couple of weeks back, and birds been banging on our window since, I guess this time one found it's way in.

It fluttered around and tried to get out, banging itself against the ceiling and the walls, and chirping loud. We opened the windows more, but it just wouldn't go out. After half an hour, we left the apartment hoping that if we are not there, the bird will be less nervous and fly out. When we came back, it was gone.
