Monday Ramblings

Monday Ramblings | 5.22.2023

Happy Monday! Thanks for once again joining me on another installment of Monday Ramblings, a weekly roundup where I catch you up on the last few days, ramble on a little, as well as share links to things I’m reading, listening to, and loving…

I know I’m posting this prettttty late on a Monday, but this weekend kept me super busy, and away from my laptop. On Friday, I played my first beer-league hockey match with my Crossfit Gym team. We lost but I absolutely loved it, and am now obsessed with the sport.

On Saturday, I had my last ice skating lesson of the Spring session, and I tested up a level. I ran a bunch of errands, cleaned my car, took the best nap, and then went to an escape room with some awesome friends (this was a cool location too – doing a post about this soon!).

Sunday was another fun day. I went to a free ice hockey clinic organized by the Denver Women’s Hockey League and got to play some more. My family and I met up and I got to see Guardians of the Galaxy (the second time for me – here is my movie review in case you missed it) at the Alamo Drafthouse. I can’t stop telling everyone about this place – it’s so much fun for a night out!

I had such a good weekend, so it was really difficult to find the motivation to go to my day job today. I normally like what I do, but it’s been a crushing few weeks where our team is pulling all sorts of heroics trying to meet a pretty aggressive deadline. Not my favorite way to work, but it comes with the territory once in a while…

Anyway… On to some fun or interesting links…

The warmer weather makes me want to dig out my linen pieces. These pants look incredibly comfortable and stylish, and I’m eyeing them, especially with all the upcoming Memorial Day sales…

This looks like it would be a fun hat to wear to the beach…

📆 Things to do…

I’m interested in seeing this exhibit at the Denver Art Museum. They have free days every couple of weeks. I’ve been meaning to go for years and think it’s time to just make it happen.

🎧 Listen to this…

I’ve been listening to Tastes Like War on audiobook on my commutes to work and am really loving it so far.

Ever since The Last of Us, I’ve been so intrigued by the real-life crazy things fungi can do. This Huberman Lab Podcast is SO interesting (PS – Mushrooms, specifically picking them and eating them, are a HUGE part of Ukrainian culture, even during the wartimes…)
