I am doing NaBloPoMo this month. 30 blog posts in 30 days. Come join me. #nablopomo2022
WORKING ON | a 30-day yoga streak for November. As I mentioned in my post about my current morning routine, I’ve been doing yoga every day (from at least 10-minute up to 45-minute sessions) and it’s been so nice. I hope to keep this up when the month is over.
PARTICIPATING | in yet another Peloton Power Zone Challenge with Tanja and our StreakersArmyPZ team. The challenge is, as always, organized by the Power Zone Pack and they always come up with a theme for each challenge. The theme for the current challenge is “Once Upon A Zone” and the name of our Team is “Rumplestreakskin”. Don’t you love it? It’s so fun to train with purpose and an awesome community :)
BUYING | new bathroom mats and a shower curtain and feeling oddly excited about it. Is that what adulthood does to you?
EATING | a slightly adapted version of these coconut curry lentils with spinach. I am really into quick and simple dinners right now with simple ingredients and this one absolutely fits the bill. So simple, so filling, and so, so good.
BAKING | these soft and fluffy Weckmänner for St. Martin’s Day again.
RELIEVED | about the outcome of the midterm elections. Yes, there was still a lot to be desired, but overall, these have been the best midterm results by a president’s party in years, and I can definitely see the silver linings in that. It gives me hope that we’re hopefully on a good trajectory, even if the situation is still quite precarious overall.
TRYING | to get organized for the holiday season. I still have to make a gift list, do some Christmas shopping (my brain hasn’t quite caught up on the fact that Christmas is 5 weeks away), and make a 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!)
ENJOYING | the beautiful fall days here in Northern California. It’s been a lot cooler and we had a couple of days of rain, but we still get sunshine and blue skies a lot, too.
WEARING | my Doc Martens again. It’s finally cool enough and I’ll have to wear the heck out of them for the next few months.
LOOKING FORWARD TO | a long Thanksgiving weekend. Jon and I will be by ourselves, but I’ll be running the local Turkey Trot in the morning and we’ll cook a nice meal later in the day.
What is currently going on with you?
