We should call these currently posts, seasonal, except that I missed Spring this year. Where has the year even gone?! I can’t believe we are halfway through October. Now with the holidays approaching, work gets busy and time just seems to fly. I’m really trying to soak up the Fall days before winter comes. I scheduled my appointment to get my winter tires on my car so I will be ready. My work schedule is still 4 days in the office and then Friday through the following week at home. I’m enjoying the every other week at home. It’s easy to throw in laundry in the morning and then finish it at lunch time or just get some quick cleaning done.
Currently Reading… I fell off my daily reading habit for a little while, but now I’m back at it. I’m finally taking advantage of the local library so I don’t have to buy every book. I just finished The Road Trip by Beth O’Leary and checked out Maybe You Should Talk to Someone by Lori Gottlieb.
Currently Watching… There are so many shows I am currently watching. Last year with COVID so many shows were delayed in filming and it’s nice to see new shows again. I just started watching Pretty Smart on Netflix with Emily Osment and the second season of The Babysitter’s Club also on Netflix. I am also watching season 4 of A Million Little Things currently, great drama show.
Current purchase… I am really trying this month to not make too many purchases after needing to buy some items for my car and also just making many purchases in the last few months where a lot of items didn’t work out and needed returning. Returning was a bit of a hassle and I’m trying to save. I will say that I loved my recent Stitch Fix box that I purchased and feel set on clothes for a while now.
Current food… I’m currently smelling my second batch of vegan pumpkin chili cooking in the slow cooker. Highly recommend for a fall dish and perfect for a rainy or cold day.
Currently drinking…. All the water in my half gallon water bottle. I mostly bought this after my sister did a gallon of water a day challenge and said it was so hard. I actually didn’t find it too hard to do. However, I usually stick to filling this bottle once most days and then using my smaller water bottles or glasses in the morning and evening. For some reason, switching up the container my water is in helps to motivate me to drink more water. I feel really good drinking that half gallon + each day though.
Currently wearing… all the fall sweaters, at least when it’s not 70 degrees outside. This October has been surprisingly warm and we still have our AC unit in. However, I will soak it all up before it gets cold for many months. I am just loving my Fall sweaters now with jeans or work pants. They are great for work since the office is cold year round and then I don’t need an additional sweater over a blouse.
Currently dreaming of… oh there are so many things, but not ready to share here. I’m trying to stay positive in that things will come when they are meant to, but it’s a challenge being in the waiting stage.
I want to leave this quote here that I just saw on my friend’s Facebook page and was so good.
“Trust the timing of your life. Keep focusing on putting one foot in front of the other, be kind, and follow your heart. Doors will open effortlessly, but first you have to be ready to walk through”
All this to say, if you are currently dreaming of things for your life, enjoy the now and the present. Keep working towards your goals and you will get there. Or maybe another door will open that you didn’t expect. These are the things I am telling myself right now. I’m not always good at living in the present moment. I am often focused on the future or past. Sometimes I just need the reminder to enjoy the now.
