It’s been a week, although I think I say that every week. I started a different post with the intention of sharing my thoughts/lessons from said week but I somehow ended the post talking about football. What?! Needless to say, I’m frazzled…but I’m happy. Finding joy in the sunsets and dog cuddles. Persevering through the rough moments. Waiting for my egg to hatch.
Let’s stick with the good thoughts and feels today…
LOVING. Florida fall. Crisp blue skies, low 70’s and the most beautiful sunsets. Remember when I was complaining about summer weather? This makes up for it.
LISTENING (to). Podcasts aaaaand Christmas music, only as of yesterday. I needed some pre-holiday holiday cheer, don’t hate. Add Pentatonix to your holiday playlist.
WATCHING. Late night talk shows…the day after they air. What was life before Tivo? The Jimmy’s (Fallon and Kimmel) are coming in clutch right now. Do you have a favorite?
EATING. Salmon (with Dijon and rosemary). I had a piece for breakfast yesterday I love it so much. (#rethinkbreakfast)
FEELING. I’ll tell you what I’m feeling as I’m typing this (because it obviously changes every
day hour)…pressure. Not necessarily bad pressure but I still feel it. Isn’t there a quote with diamonds forming under pressure? Does this mean I’m getting diamonds for Christmas?
LAUGHING (at). Archie. Even when everyone is home he’ll walk into his crate to nap. He has a perfectly good bed in the family room (and is allowed to sit on our couch!), but he still chooses his crate. Rocco hated the crate when he was a puppy so Archie’s behavior is very unusual to me. I feel the need to take a photo every time I see him in it.
PONDERING. My “five-year plan.” Let’s just laugh at that. I’ve been asked about my “five-year plan” many times during the interview process. I know it’s a very typical question and I answer with my rough idea/goal/would-be-nice-to-have…but a plan? The only thing I know for sure is I want to be happy. That’s the plan tomorrow and in five years.
APPRECIATING. Friendships…near and far.
And also this Instagram. I’m glad someone else can relate. Not that 2017 will magically make things better.
MISSING. My sister. She comes home tomorrow for break and we’re going to make snow angels for two hours, go ice skating, then we’ll eat a whole roll of Tollhouse cookie dough as fast as we can, and then we’ll snuggle.
Chances are we’ll watch Friends (the Thanksgiving episodes), spend money at Target (on things we don’t need) and go to yoga. We’ll likely wait until Christmas to watch Elf.
