As I write this, I can’t believe it’s the last day of October. It’s month closing at work and as I wrote in the date of 10/31, I was like, where the heck did October even go? I think the fact that 3 of 4 weeks of October felt like a spring/summer mix which through me off a bit. I didn’t mind the amazing weather though. Now we are getting lows below freezing and I think it may be time to upgrade from a sweatshirt jacket to an actual jacket. But I am very excited for the holiday season to begin. I’m going to dig out my Christmas movies soon as I order presents online. I know I shouldn’t forget about Turkey day, but I’m kinda ready to go straight to Christmas and go to the New Year…
Anyway, today I’m checking in with a Currently post.
Current podcast: The Lazy Genius. Thanks to The Chatty Sisters podcast for chatting about this one. I tend to find podcasts through other podcasts or reading blog posts.
Current guilty pleasure: watching This is Us online. Almost caught up and then I don’t know what I will watch, too soon for Christmas movies??.
Current drink: Cusa instant green tea, you guys I found the solution to my impatience for hot tea. Instant tea, that can be made in hot or cold water. I found out about this brand from Erin’s Inside Job blog. Seriously it’s the best and gets me to drink more water in the morning.
Current food: anything pumpkin? I have been making new recipes from blogs that involve pumpkin. Pumpkin lasagna was delicious and next up is a pumpkin chili
Current obsession: online ordering of Christmas gifts. I can’t even keep track of the number of packages I am expecting soon…
Current craving: yoga and stretching. I really don’t do enough and trying to do more stretching before and after workouts at the gym and get on my mat at home a bit.
Current need: work pants…honestly I tried Thred Up and even with getting multiple sizes to try I ended up returning them all so I need a trip to the mall to try on the pants in person and maybe find some that fit #fitgirlproblems
Current excitement: holiday season starting
Current confession: I’m liking reading more than tv these days…
Current mood: been a little stressed lately as I look to the future and planning…have to remember to focus on the present and what I can do right now
Current wish: that my car makes it through winter here…not looking forward to snowy hills. I grew up in flat Illinois and somehow made it without winter tires but there were days I couldn’t get over the curb into the driveway. Street parking isn’t really an option where I live now so…should be interesting but I have winter tires on year round because they just work better than my regular all season ones.
How soon do you start watching Christmas movies or listening to Christmas music?
