Life, Articles and Packages Growing Out of Pots

It’s Friday!  This week has gone by so slowly and I’m excited to relax into this weekend.

The other day I received a package from Amazon.  I guess my mailman decided that putting my package on the potted plant was appropriate.  I guess Amazon could be so developed that packages now grow out of the ground too…

On Monday my sister in law and family stopped into work.  They all needed new running shoes and I was lucky to have a little assistant to help me.


Other then that I’ve been cleaning all week on my off time.  My house has been in desperate need of a serious deep cleaning.  I’m proud that I’m finally getting on top of that.

I also have decided to spend some free time painting furniture.  I figured we were going to get rid of it anyways, so if it doesn’t turn out well I haven’t lost too much.

  1. Maybe the Amazon drones put it there, they might not be programmed to know the optimal dropoff spot yet. Also, good job with the table! I’m so not-crafty its embarrassing although I’d like to try some projects at some point!

  2. Thanks so much for linking up my article. Much appreciated and I’m glad you enjoyed it.

  3. Maybe he figured he could grow your Amazon package? Did he at least water it? Totally plan on being passed out, I mean reading, in a beach chair all weekend. I need some vitamin D on this body! I’m obsessed with the song Quarterback by Kopecky… no idea why but can’t stop listening 🙂

  4. Woohoo for Friday! This has been a seriously long week–bring on the weekend! Which means plenty of swimming, biking, and running. 🙂

  5. I needed some new songs for my phone so that is perfect. Love that your sister in law came to visit you! I always love when people come to see me at work. It’s always a nice way to break up the day.

  6. 6 ways to take your social media addiction -> I needed that article! I’ve been trying so hard the last few weeks to use social media less but it’s really hard!

  7. I heard that Skrillex Biebs song last night for the first time and was singing along and then found out who it was. I kinda hate the Biebs but that song is tight.

  8. UPS put a package under my doormat once. It was a big box and very visible. I’ve also heard them put packages downstairs from my upstairs office and I am convinced they threw them onto my porch.

    So glad you got to help your family find new running shoes at work! I see my shoes (NB Fresh Foam Zante) in the picture too.

  9. I have that song from Father of The Bride “Going to the chapel and we’re gonna get married” in my head. It’s not exactly motivating, but makes me smile. Weekend plans include playing with my cats and working. When I say playing, I mean keep Sterling out of the sink X-)

  10. That package. Seriously, whenever I order from amazon, my boxes are left all over the place. I also love that article from Coach Jenny at RW. She always does an amazing job answering questions.

    This weekend I’m painting the master bedroom, (hopefully) deciding which race to sign up for, actually running, and playing tennis with the hubby. Happy Saturday!

  11. I’ve just spent a full day making a running mix of all my favourite Eric Prydz and Pryda songs. It lasts 1 hour 25 minutes, so I have to finish my next half marathon before it stops playing..
