Currenty | October


eating apple-cinnamon steel cut oats. So, so good. The taste of fall.

watching This is Life with Lisa Ling on CNN. (Am I a broken record?)

enjoying the finally cooler temperatures. Thank you, fall.

happy-dancing about some really good news from my bff’s recent cancer screening.

wearing close-toed shoes again for the first time this fall. It’s still in the 80’s during the day, but the mornings and evenings are significantly cooler now.

missing out on a high school reunion back home. Debating if this is a good thing after all ;)

looking forward to another work trip at the beginning of November.

loving my first cup of coffee in the morning. No seriously, I think this is what makes me get out of bed in the morning. If I didn’t have that to look forward to, I don’t know what would happen… (and then on Monday, I get to the office and my co-worker is already there (he usually comes in after me) and he’s brewed an awfully thin pot of coffee and I just can’t even..).

appreciating little things like not having to pay for my teeth cleaning last week. Since my healthcare premiums have gone up significantly under my new work contract (*sad-trombone*), I try to at least recognize some little perks that come with that (let’s see how many more I can detect! I hope many more!).

planning on launching some Christmas cards for this year in our Etsy shop soon. I’ll keep you posted!

keeping in mind that nothing is ever as it seems.

  1. I would likely be the most horrible human on the face of this earth if I couldn’t have coffee every morning.

    And yay about your friend!!! I hope they are on the mend!!

    1. Coffee is everything :)

      And thank you.

  2. So happy to hear about your dear friend!
    You’ve turned me on to “This is Life,” I just watched the first episode, but I can’t wait to watch more!

    1. Thank you. I am so happy about the good news.
      And I am thrilled that you’re watching “This is Life”… :)

  3. I had my first bowl of oats in months this morning and it was just lovely! Fall comfort food is the best food as far as I’m concerned.

    Knowing that I’m only a few minutes away from a cup of coffee is the only thing that gets me out of bed some mornings. Hanging out with a cup and catching up on the internet first thing in the morning is my favourite daily ritual.

    1. “Hanging out with a cup and catching up on the internet first thing in the morning is my favourite daily ritual!” <-- YES!!!!

  4. Yaeh to your friend! Boo to close-toed shoes ;(

  5. So thrilled to hear about your friend! Happy dancing indeed :)

  6. Haha I posted my Currently October post today, too! Great minds… ;)

    I am also thankful for the cooler temps here in Sac. It’s finally feeling like fall, which means I can start doing fall things, like baking and heading to Apple Hill!

  7. Ohhh, dieser Kaffee! Ein Traum. Ich könnte niemals auf einen guten Milchkaffee verzichten. Kaffee ist definitiv auch das, was mich am Morgen aus dem Bett bringt. :)

    1. Ich trinke auch immer Milchkaffee… der im Bild war ein ” Vanilla Latte”…. so lecker!! :)

  8. Yum, apple cinnamon steel cut oats sound so good! I eat oatmeal every day with brown sugar and a sliced banana but I should mix it up sometime and try a new flavor!

  9. I, too, am super happy about the good news your friend got! Yay!
    And coffee!?! What would I be without it! Happy Monday xxx

  10. That morning coffee really is the best. Also the steel cut oats sounds delicious!

  11. Good news are great! Happy for your friend.
    And there is nothing better than cinnamon-apple oats and coffee.
    Have a great Sunday, Tobia
