November 1st is here, my friends! How about a catch up post on the things going on for me right now?
Planning: NaBloPoMo posts and topics. It starts today and I’ve been participating since 2010 and I see no reason to stop now. Join me!
Writing: A speech I have to give this Friday night. Dale’s family is being honored by a local scholarship group and somehow I wound up being their choice for talking to the crowd. I don’t necessarily mind doing it but I want to get it just.right.
Cooking: Lots of things in the Instant Pot. It’s so awesome for cooking chicken breasts to us in recipes, for hardboiled eggs, for rice, and so much more. I use it several times every week.
Selling: LipSense and ShadowSense and more. Let me know if you want to try any of it, this stuff is a game changer.
Watching: Grey’s Anatomy, This Is US & Outlander and loving them all. I didn’t see that exit on Grey’s last week coming and I’m a bit bummed about it, honestly.
Knitting: Socks for Hannah. I’m in the home stretch and need to get these finished so I can plan some fun knitting for a road trip we have coming up.
Reading: See What I Have Done. I started last night at bedtime and literally fell asleep after 1 page.
Enjoying: Heat in the morning. We haven’t had a fire in the woodstove yet (although I suspect it will be soon) but our thermostat is programmed to automatically come on when the temperature in the house goes below 60° and I’m glad. I see no point in participating in heat wars and refusing to be comfortable to save a couple of bucks.
Wondering: Why someone thinks Facebook is the place to ask when power is coming back. Yes, it’s inconvenient when the power goes out and I don’t like it either. But if you can get to Facebook then you can get to the electric company website and you can check there. Also, stop complaining and be glad you aren’t in Puerto Rico.
Smiling: At all the Halloween photos on Facebook because this is the upside of Facebook. I love seeing the progression of costumes from super cute to super scary as the kids grow up.
Speaking: Of Halloween photos, here’s ours.
