Day of Rest?

Happy Sunday!

I actually have to work on this glorious Sunday but have tomorrow off…it’s going to be my mission to find a yoga studio. Hopefully working on Sundays won’t become a pattern because I’d love to find a church here….I miss mine back home a whole lot.

Anyways, this morning I finally made the PERFECT cup of coffee! I bought a larger french press from Target yesterday because the tiny one cup one that I had been using was just leading to messy disasters.


I’m officially addicted. I don’t think I’ll ever use a coffee maker again….french press is where it’s at.

Plus oatmeal (soymilk, oats, banana, cinnamon, pumpkin butter, almond butter, mmmmmm)


So I found out yesterday that I definitely have 1 month to find a new place to live. I’m pretty bummed, not going to lie. I LOVE this place and this is the first “bad” thing that’s happened out here. Everything was going so smoothly…I should have knocked on wood a little more. As for now, it’s back to Craigs List and I’m just praying something works out. As much as I adore this little place, I guess it just wasn’t meant to be. Sad!

Time to shower and get ready for WORK! Enjoy your Sunday!

    Hang in there Jenna – as great as your current place is, it just means there is something even better for you at your next one!! Funny – I read the other day how you were going to look for a yoga place and just for kicks I googled it:

    You really have an amazing life there!! 🙂

    Sorry to hear you have to move again. At least you’ll be able to look at places in person this time though. I hope you find one with better heat 🙂

    I am all about living by the words “everything happens for a reason.” When I first moved out of the dorms and into my own apartment, I had moved in with my two best friends. Let’s just say two weeks later I moved into a small studio apt by myself after my parents got involved and threatened the two girls with changing the locks if they didn’t sign me off the lease. It is a long story but what I thought was going to be the best living situation ever, turned into a nightmare as they were NOT respectful of me, my belongings, and my needs. They also turned into MAJOR b!tches after I moved out and spread the nastiest rumors about that were completely untrue. I was so hurt, but I learned some very valuable lessons from the whole mess-and-a-half. You might not know why you aren’t guna be living in the cute attic for the entire year, but for some reason or another, you are guna move out in a month and move into the place you are meant to call home! 🙂

    Awww sorry you have to move. But maybe God has an even better place in mind for you and this was a quick safe haven until it was available.

    I will be praying that you can find a home church and make it a place you love just like your home church in Florida.

    Hi Jenna! I love my French press too. I use mine to make cold-brewed ice coffee a lot of the time. You’ll have to try it; I found the “recipe” on smitten kitchen. Congratulations on your move and all the exciting things that are happening for you.

    I love my french press, it’s so easy and takes no time at all. Plus, I find the flavor to be a lot better. Also – love your new design, very pretty!
    Don’t worry, I’m sure you’ll be able to find another place soon. As around the winery and keep searching craigslist, people are desperate for renters right now. Good luck!

    A day of rest sounds lovely and much needed… I think I may have missed you explaining this, but why do you have to move out in a month?

  • Julie
    October 11, 2009 at 11:09 am

    Thats such a bummer about having to move again. But now maybe you can find a place with working heat and a bigger free internet bubble. Good luck on your search!!

    Moving is indeed a pain in the rear. You might find, as many other wise souls have mentioned, it is all for the better. Maybe you will find an ideal place right across the street from your ideal yoga studio… stranger things have happened.

    Best to you, Jenna!!!

    I love french press coffee… I recently got rid of my coffee maker too. All about simplification. Sometimes going back to the “old” way is worth it! And the FP really doesn’t take that much longer.

    What a bummer about moving! But I’m 100% sure everything will be ok. I remember earlier this year, when things were really difficult…I knew big things were on your horizon…it’s all coming true, my dear. It will all be ok. =)

    Good luck finding a new place, when one door closes, another one opens!

    I wanted to let you know that all that has been going on for you has really inspired me to pursue life and live my passions. I recently decided to become certified to teach yoga and as of this morning, I was accepted into a program and I start next weekend. I’m so excited to start this journey, thanks for inspiring me.

    We used to have a french press and it is true that they do make better coffee.
    That’s a shame about your apartment. It looked really cute and cozy.

    Love that french press. It seriously makes one of the best cups of coffee EVER.

    Sorry to hear about the living sitch. If it makes you feel any better, I found my California apartment through craigslist, took it sight unseen, and it ended up being one of the greatest places to live!

    Hey Jenna! Goodness, I’m sorry about your apartment. That’s a bummer. I’m also curious about why you have to move. No worries if you want to keep it off the blog, but I honestly can’t think of a reason why someone would even let you into a space if they weren’t going to rent it to you… Glad you like the French press and good luck in your search!!

    I’m sure you’ll be able to find yourself a great place, and eventually you won’t be able to imagine yourself someplace else! I’ve always wanted to try a french press — but I’ve been intimidated by them…perhaps I’ll give ’em a shot! 🙂

    So I guess I missed why you have to move, that is a total bummer.

    I read back a few posts…don’t beat yourself up on the 6 mile run instead of 11. You really should do a low mileage day the week before your run. That’s my story! (I’m planning on 8 miles the week before my half). I think you’ll do just fine!!
