I am doing NaBloPoMo this month. 30 blog posts in 30 days. Come join me. #nablopomo2021
EATING | this delicious and nutritious (slightly adapted) white bean-kale-chicken sausage skillet. I recommend you try this. It’s super-creamy but has no cream or half-and-half in it. It’s magical.
DRINKING | lemon-ginger tea.
BAKING | these beautifully soft and fluffy yeast men with raisins for St. Martin’s Day. I used my sweet yeast-bread recipe.
BUYING | some goodies for the Secret Santa (Mug) Swap and another Holiday Exchange I signed up for. I love these types of events for the holidays, and I love picking out gifts for people. Gift-giving is not my primary love language, but it’s also not NOT my love language if you know what I mean.
ENJOYING | the free Tchibo Coffee that came in the mail last week.
LOOKING FORWARD TO | Thanksgiving weekend. Jon and I will be by ourselves, but we’ll cook a nice meal and I’ll probably get the Christmas stuff out, as it’s the first of advent on Sunday. Have you decorated yet?
READING | The Midnight Library by Matt Haig. Second round. I didn’t finish it the first round (not because it wasn’t good, I just didn’t have much time to read) and had to wait again for it to become available through my digital library.
LOOKING FOR | the little things in daily life; like this heart-shaped leaf on my run.
ENJOYING | the fall skies in Northern California.
WATCHING | Dancing with the Stars. I haven’t watched that show in forever, probably the last time when Joe McIntyre was part of the show in 2005 – ha! But since Cody Rigsby (Peloton Instructor) is participating this season, I had to watch. Obviously.
FEELING | kinda indifferent about the fact that we’re going to have another pandemic holiday season. Jon and I are no strangers to being by ourselves for the holidays. I’ll be able to take a few days off between the years and we’ll make it nice. But I truly wish I could be with my family.
TRYING | to come up with a game plan for our holiday cards. Are you sending cards this year? (If you’ve been around, you know I’ll be having a roll call a little later this month (so I can gather and/or update your addresses!)
LOVING | this time of year with the darker evenings, blankets, candles, and soft lights. I’ll soon be using the fake TV fireplace, for sure.
What is currently going on with you?
