Sunday Daylight Savings, friendly faces… 😴
How are we feeling? Are we tired and cranky after losing an hour from our mornings?
I’m feeling surprisingly fantastijazzical, and I say surprisingly because I’m pretty sure I’m a little sleep deprived at this point. See, we had some crazy a*s wind around these parts on Saturday morning, and I ended up waking up at 3am and not being able to fall back asleep. I had no idea what to do with myself, so I started working on a few projects and ended up having one of the most productive days that I’ve had in for.ev.er. I normally try not to work too much on the weekends, but when you’re in the zone, you’ve gotta milk it for all it’s worth… right? And it definitely feels awesome to have a little less on my plate — I’m almost hoping for a repeat today 😁
I’m also hoping that you guys are having an awesome weekend, and that you find some good reads in these links I found for you this week. See your lovely faces tomorrow!
