A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
This is Wednesday, April 27, 2016!
A day off work on my 26th birthday. A day full of friendship, new creative beginnings, eating dill pickle popcorn.

Enjoy!

A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
I woke up, and suddenly I was 26. Over the hill in my 20s. Life is weird.

A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
I was hoping the eczema on my face would get better before I turned 26. But that was kind of an arbitrary marker. Woke up to Tweedy’s breath.

A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
Sufi always notices when I start to stir and comes and stomps on my chest.

A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
Turn off my humidifier that I bought in the “pregnancy aisle” at a Target.

A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
Zach dyed my hair the night before, I see now the true color now that’s it dry and light out. A little too blue in my mixture, but I’m still happy with it.

A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
Cleaned up the makeshift salon around in the living room (yes, I put down pee pads to catch falling hair dye)

A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
I never noticed the ceiling light before. It’s calming!

A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
Coffee and milk and more coffee

A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
I finally decide that the stove has GOT to be cleaned and de-greased. It’s gone too far.

A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
While I bleach the sink, I focus on 409ing the stove.

A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
I’m 26 now. I need to know how to clean my shit. This is embarrassing.

A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
While the vinegar chills out on the stove, I turn my attention to throwing my meal together for tonight’s potluck.

A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
A recipe with salsa verde AND beer? Mmhmm…

A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
I chopped up onions in strips and added them to the chicken and cumin already in the crockpot.

A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
I add the salsa verde and beer, and set the timer to 8.5 hours on low.

A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
Well..it doesn’t quite clean as well as I was hoping. But…progress right. Baby steps and progress.

A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
Need to deep scrub my hands that now smell like vinegar.

A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
Sometimes I accept that this is just what my new face looks like. I don’t mind the red, it’s the itching and peeling that bother me the most.

A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
A memento on my b-day? That’s the tits.

A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
I let the pups out of the bedroom now that the cleaning supplies are all tucked away.

A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
The pups have to take their monthly medicine, which means they get yummy wet food.

A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
I have to wrap the pill in some of the wet food and make sure they both eat it. They eat the shit out of it.

A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
I have to bring Sufi’s special wet food into the work room. He doesn’t like to eat while he’s being watched…weirdo.

A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
Of course moments later I catch him peeing on my rug…SUFI.

A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
Gee, I wonder if he feels guilty?

A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
Let’s get out of here.

A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
I’m not sure how I never noticed that my neighbor has a LOQUAT TREE!!!!!

A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
Evil Sufi.

A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
I throw my dirty shoes onto my messy shoe rack.

A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
Time check.

A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
I never edited photos and went through them for my ADIML I did on Christmas. I’ll do it still! 🙂

A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
Zach got me this super weird Downtown Sasquatch shirt…yeah…anybody else know the reference? 🙂 PS Baby Drake

A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
In the morning I’m on a flight to Asheville, North Carolina to visit Zach’s sister’s homestead. I haven’t even weather checked or packed. The time is now.

A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
Tried a little today.

A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
I was warned by a friend that taking a pottery class means getting covered in clay. So I tried to find some clothes I didn’t mind getting dirty.

A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
Zeen! Holding some small boxes.

A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
One contains this slightly-off Luke’s mug! I’m going to def take this to the office.

A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
Let’s go! When he asked me what I wanted to do for my birthday, for some reason “pottery class!” jumped into my brain. I think I wanted to feel handy and creative and to try something new.

A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
Got to pick 4 pounds of clay total to make 2 items.

A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
Zach’s flower pot…a little wonky but very charming overall.

A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
I tried to make two bowls that would be the same shape and size. I successfully made two bowls, they just happened to be more…uh…unique! (The front bowl is mine, as well as the flatter bowl in the background)

A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
So fun!!!

A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
Dancing for joy. Pottery success. I feared I wouldn’t even successfully make 1 thing.

For a quick romp to Disneyland.

A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
We’re mostly visiting to try this little Tiki Bar at the Disneyland Hotel that we heard was kitschy and weird and fun.

We made it!

A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
Was silently thinking “who would be here at this bar on a Wednesday afternoon besides me? Oh right…tourists and their children.”

A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
Ordered a little mix of wings, fried beans, and Portuguese sausage to nibble on.

A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
Zach looking like he was just electrocuted. I could only get enough light to take photos whenever somebody opened the door to come in or out.

A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
Part of the “charm” of the bar is you get a fun cup with your beverage. Here’s a shruken zombie head.

A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
Just drinkin’ some liquified zombie brains

“What do you want to do?” “Get pickle popcorn.”

A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
Stumbled on a wine and beer event at the CA Adventure “vineyard.” Why not!

A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
HERE IT IS! A beer and some dill pickle flavored popcorn.

A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
So salty. So popcorn. Much yummy.

A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
We wander around to see which character is up next in the drawing studio, but decide to squeeze in a few rides at Disneyland if we can before heading back for the potluck.

Listened to the new Matt & Kim EP and then DJed the worst assortment of songs on the way home.

A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
The sky was nice.

A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
We parked and rushed back to the apt. I wanted to make sure a) my crockpot didn’t burn the house down and b) that Aryn was safely inside (she drove down from SF!)

A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
A Day in My Life (April 27, 2016)
