I finished another 7 books this month and I am cautiously hopeful that I got my reading mo-jo back. (Psst, I don’t want to jinx it.)
I made this soup at least three times already, and I am so excited that fall is around the corner and more soups, stews, and casseroles will return to our weekly meal plan soon! What are your favorite recipes for fall?
I half-heartedly followed the news (I used to be so dedicated to a news hour in the evenings, but lately, I opt for other things)… but this impeachment inquiry has me all, dare I say, hopeful?
I haven’t been much of a random shopper lately, I’ve become a lot more intentional with my money. I mean, who goes to Michaels and Home Goods and walks away without buying a damn thing? Unheard of! I did buy a new cardigan for fall (well, technically, I didn’t buy it as it was paid for with a gift card!) and a couple of new basic t-shirts.
I upped my mileage a bit again this month and ran 29 miles. Still a pretty low mileage month for me, but including my cycling mileage, I made it to over 100 miles and I am pretty happy with that. I feel like I have to put a race on the calendar though, so I can start a new training cycle and stick to a training plan again.
+ I had to take my laptop to the Apple Store this month, because I noticed a problem with my keyboard. The space bar would randomly add two spaces when only pressed once and it was getting super-annoying to constantly fix that. You know, when you type a lot, you need the space bar to function properly. Turns out, it was a known problem and I got the keyboard replaced for free. Turn-around time was 48 hours, which I thought was good.
+ My Dad celebrated his 70’s birthday this month. Seventy! I can’t wrap my head around it. Where does the time go? I wish I could have been there to hug him. It’s hard to be so far away for big milestones like that.
+ We hung out with friends on two different occasions this month, which was nice.
+ We went to the German Brauhaus, Low Brau, this month and shared a big sausage platter. Damn, food’s been getting more expensive in Sacramento, but those sausages were worth every penny. They were so good.
+ I got a pedi with a friend.
+ J got a haircut + beard trim and I got my hair cut as well this month (and I screamed at the price for my trim. Long-haired ladies, where do you go and what do you pay for, literally just having your ends trimmed, no wash, no blow-out, no nothing?).
+ My co-worker brought in donuts the other week. If you know me, you know that I NEVER have donuts. Well, I make the occasional exception. This one up there (the one with the sugar coat) reminds me of the German “Berliner”, so I had to have one, but after eating it, I’ve been good (and on a sugar high) for at least the next 12 months. Haha.
How was your September?
