Life is a whirlwind lately.
I feel as if yesterday was Saturday but it will already be Saturday again in just two days? How could that be?
I'm still trying to find my groove in getting back to work. Figuring out my own systems and routines at home as well as in the workplace. My hours in the car are long as my responsibilities take me to different locations in New York and very metro parts of northernmost New Jersey every day. All far from what I now realize is actually my "quiet" seaside hamlet; otherwise known as home. I knew what I was signing up for in taking this job and the commute that comes with it and to be honest the time spent in the car has it's merits. The morning commute is a chance to plan my day and make any work related phone calls. The drive home is an hour or two of pure "downtime". Peace and quiet and the chance to be alone with my thoughts. It also affords me a chance to catch up with loved ones so that when I arrive home I can be present.
I would be lying however, if I didn't tell you that I am dying for daylight savings time. It was so warm yesterday and after spending a day setting up my office and doing desk work I had more energy than a hyperactive toddler. I was aching to get home and get outside for a walk, a bike ride, anything...but the traffic I hit put me half an hour later than I should have been and by that time it was dark. C'est la vie.
The thought of outfit pictures is laughable right now and the only photos I have been taking are for Instagram. It's a crying shame because my closet dives are deep and many things that were almost forgotten have been seeing the light of day. Wearing all black or black and white takes more thought and consideration than one might think and has me stretching the limits of my wardrobe while maintaining my more frugal mind set. And it feels pretty darn good.
All in all, I can't complain. Life is great and I am truly blessed. Seeing the beauty of such a magnificent skyline on a regular basis is pretty darn cool. And there's something to be said about stand still traffic affording me the chance to capture that beauty and share it with all of you.
