It's been awhile since I've updated or posted anything to this blog. You know how it is, sometimes life and adulting just take over and it's hard to find the time to make words. At least that's been my struggle. To hopefully help me ease back into things, here is a taking stock post for November 2018.
Making: Some progress on operation de-clutter!
Cooking: I made a beef soup (that was supposed to be a stew but the recipe lied) for dinner last night that tasted good, but was not quite what either of us wanted. It was nice to get back into the kitchen and do some cooking.
Drinking: Coke Zero. So apparently my cutting out soda is going really well!
Reading: I'm currently re-reading the Codex Alera series by Jim Butcher. I like to revisit books like old friends and I enjoy his writing.
Looking: Out the window. There is traffic to watch pass by, but it's also very much fall on the Nike campus and the colors of the leaves still left on the trees are pretty. It makes my mind wander to happy thoughts like apple cider donuts and pumpkin spice lattes.
Playing: Nothing right now. I'm hoping to get to a point where David can teach me to play chess!
Wasting: I feel like I'm wasting time, but I think I always feel that way.
Sewing: It's been awhile since I've worked on any cross-stitches. That is another thing I'm hoping to get back into after life settles into a new routine.
Wishing: I was less fearful about new things. I also wish it wasn't so hard for me to stand up for myself.
Enjoying: Getting myself back together, and getting the house back in shape.
Waiting: To see what the next few months have in store for us!
Liking: The chance to go through things that have needed to be gone through, and to play in the kitchen.
Wondering: If I will finally find my creativity ;)
Loving: My husband. He has been my biggest supporter, my best friend, my rock...he is my home and my heart.
Hoping: That I can figure out eBay without having a stroke.
Marveling: At how much better I sleep when I can let some of the anxiety go.
Needing: To believe in myself as much as my husband does so I can be the person he sees me as for real.
Smelling: Cool fall air.
Wearing: Jeans, ratty but comfy shirt, warm socks, and a snuggly sweater.
Following: I've recently been sucked into the world of true crime podcasts. I was never able to get into podcasts but then a coworker talked up Sword and Scale and I'm hooked!
Noticing: That I'm still not used to typing on my lap top keyboard.
Opening: Nothing yet, but there is a bottle of Bailey's Irish Cream calling my name. Just waiting for the end of the day!
Thank you for reading. Hopefully I'll get into a routine and start telling some stories, and sharing my days. If you are new to my blog please say hi, and you have your own blog please add a link so I can come over and say hi.
