I’ve got exactly … nothing to blog about today. That must mean it’s time for a catch all post! Here’s what’s happening in my world right now:
Enjoying: Our outdoor lights. We’re turning them on earlier and earlier and I am grateful for the loveliness of them.
Choosing: Paint for my craft room. It’s looking like Summer Wish from Valspar will be the one.
Reading: On Being Human by Jennifer Pastiloff. I just started this last night and it’s very well written and I feel like it’s not going to be a typical memoir.
Watching: Chernobyl. Actually we finished last night. It’s only 5 episodes and if you haven’t already watched it I highly recommend it.
Knitting: The Peace Cowl. Still. But I’m in the home stretch.
Planning: A dinner party to celebrate my birthday on Saturday. It will be small, with only the very closest of friends, and if the weather holds it will be under the pergola.
Anticipating: Fall decorating. I don’t love saying goodbye to summer but I do love swapping out the curtains and bedding and getting out all my autumn decor.
Dreaming: About that side hustle. It’s not ready for public input just yet but I’m working with a friend to start create a workshop to help women find their power and use it to fulfill their own dreams.
Coordinating: Calendars with Dale. I’ve got a conference coming up, he’s got a class reunion, we’ve got plans to make to get us through until the fall. The calendar discussion turned into a vacation discussion and that was great.
Feeling: Excited about strength training. I’m loving that circuit I linked to last week. I’m still only doing one repeat but I’m doing the full amount of exercises and can tell I’m getting stronger.
Planting: Daffodil bulbs, apparently. I got an email yesterday from White Flower Farm that my order was on the way. I checked and, sure enough, I placed an order last spring. I had forgotten all about it!
Diffusing: All the fall essential oil scents. Ginger, clove, nutmeg, orange and more. My house smells great and we aren’t breathing in smoke from candles. I love it.
Missing: Our hummingbirds. I haven’t seen any the last few times I’ve been on the deck. They may be gone and I’m sad.
Drinking: Excellent coffee from our new place in town, Restoration Coffee. I have to leave for work 10 minutes earlier in order to make the time to get there but it’s worth it. I’ve never been a fan of Starbucks (and we don’t have one near us anyway) and I’ve always tolerated Dunkin Donuts, but this coffee is exceptional. If you’re local and haven’t tried this place I can’t recommend it enough.
I guess for someone who didn’t have much to say . . . I actually did have a lot to say! Thanks for reading.
