(still) RUNNING | in shorts over here, although I’ve gotten out the long leggings and fuzzy socks last weekend.
TRYING | to take advantage of some of the beautiful fall weather to get outside, but also
LOVING | the rain. We finally, finally got some rain this last weekend. I found it rather cozy hearing steady rain outside for an extended period of time. Ok, it didn’t have to be a bomb cyclone, tbh, but I guess we can’t be picky around here. We desperately need the precipitation to extinguish wildfires and fill reservoirs, but then again, we’re also hoping for only minor flooding and no landslides of any significant size. Why does it always have to be feast or famine?
WEARING | double-socks for the first time again this fall. It’s been getting kind of chilly at night (but we’re not using the heater yet).
ENJOYING | the Halloween decorations in our neighborhood. I am not much a Halloween-person, but I do love seeing creative decorations in front of people’s houses. I’ll share some pictures next week.
CELEBRATING | Jon’s birthday with this beautiful (and so easy to make) apple cake.
EATING | all the soups! I have been looking forward to the cooler season for the fact alone that we don’t need excuses to cook all the soups and stews again.
DRINKING | tea lattes with extra thick milk foam. My new obsession.
ORDERING | another 25 lbs. bag of rye flour. My bread baking game is still strong over here.
EXPLORING | a variety of different focus flow post-workout yoga classes on the Peloton app.
READING | Caste: The Origins of our Discontents by Isabel Wilkerson. Oh boy, a MUST-READ. Settle in for some uncomfortable truths.
WATCHING | Red Sox baseball (well, for as long as it lasted. They didn’t have a great season, pulled themselves out of the rut to beat the NY Yankees in the Wild Card game, and then played an incredible postseason against the Tampa Bay Rays and Houston Astros. Unfortunately, they didn’t make it to the World Series. Would have been fun.)
BUYING | the first Christmas presents. I read somewhere that we’re supposed to start extra early this year. Are you on it already?
LOOKING FORWARD TO | the holiday season. I mean, it is my favorite time of the year, but it’s also been coming around a bit too fast for my liking. Just me?
EXCITED | to participate – or should I say keep carrying the torch? – for NaBloPMo again, starting next Monday. It’ll be my 16th year. Call me committed. Have you decided yet if you’ll be joining me? Come on, you know you want to!
What is currently going on with you?
