October disappeared on me. Anyone else? I am sure it had to do with the fact that we traveled for the first half of the month, but man, how is it already Halloween-week?
LOVING | that I was able to spend some precious time with my parents, my sister, and the munchkins. It feels like it’s never enough, but I take what I can get.
LISTENING TO | the wind outside my window.
THINKING ABOUT | the holiday season that lies ahead and how it’s going to be a busy, but also my favorite time of the year.
EMBRACING | fall with its cooler temperatures, longer evenings, and colorful leaves.
GETTING BACK | to making overnight oats and then warming them up in the morning for an easy, but tasty, warm breakfast.
TRYING TO | get back into my running routine. I feel like I’ve said that a lot lately, but it’s mostly because I took some “unintentional” breaks in the last few months. I mean, I still ran, but I wasn’t following a plan or working toward a goal and that always makes me feel like I am not in my routine, if that makes sense.
EATING | homemade apple pie (including homemade whipped cream – screw that bottled stuff). This was so easy and quick to make. Will have to share this recipe soon!
DRINKING | peppermint tea.
ENJOYING | all the candles and lights around our apartment in the evenings now. They always make the darker season a little bit brighter.
LOOKING FORWARD TO | going to a play at the local theater. We haven’t done this in forever.
CELEBRATING | a bunch of October birthdays, including my Mom’s (on the 3rd) , Jon’s (on the 18th), and Greta’s (on the 21st).
WEARING | skinny jeans – all day, every day.
HOPING | for the winds to die down and the fires to be put out here in California. Last year was devastating and it’s been a tough fire season again this year. While we haven’t been impacted by planned power outages and/or threatened by the fires directly, it’s always a scary time living in California when wildfires are raging all over the state.
FEELING | overwhelmed by the fact that there are only 2 months left in this decade. Let that sink in, friends.
EXCITED ABOUT | NaBloPoMo. Yes, it’s that time of the year again, where I blog my way through November. Are you joining in?
What’s going on with you currently?
