Many of you wrapped up 2021 last week. I, however, took the week off and…
Before November hits the halfway point, let’s take a look back at October.
First, the photos.
Next: the videos.
And, the questions.
What did I learn?
I made overnight oats for the first time and I love them! I can stir up a batch on Sunday night and have enough for breakfast at work all week. They are super simple and healthy, too.
What was my greatest accomplishment?
I’d have to say all those outside walks. I went by myself, I went with Dale, and I went with the kids. It was a great way to move and get some fresh air and take in all the beauty of October.
Where did I go?
Not far! hahahaha! The woods and work and that’s about it. We’re pretty strict about staying safe at home.
Who did I spend time with? And what did we do?
Dale and the kids. I’m fortunate that my bubble includes Hannah and Mikey as well as Jessica’s crew. We try and have them over for dinner on Wednesdays and we occasionally see them on the weekend, too.
What brought me joy?
Time outdoors. And all that orange – it really hit me when I looked at that photo mosaic that October is for orange.
What do I want to remember?
Jackie turning 3. Our first indoor fire of the season. Walks in the woods and at the ocean. And every moment of this life because the joy always outweighs the sorrow.
On to the rest of November.
