Good morning! I hope all is well with you. In the news there is another storm, another earthquake, another missile test and a half a million people have cholera in Yemen. Some days I do not like to face the harsh world around me. What about you?
What are you…
Making : Anything with pumpkin, to included pumpkin bread, pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin pasta and a few other recipes I will share later.
Cooking : Meatballs and homemade sauce and chili this weekend.
Drinking : Water and Trying to cut out my 1 mini Coke Zero every other day because I have read terrible things about artificial sweeteners.
Reading: The Chilbury Ladies’ Choir by Jennifer Ryan
Wanting: Cooler weather, no humidity.
Looking: At a huge pile of books and magazines that I have stored like a squirrel to read in the next few weeks.
Playing: Classical music while I type this post.
Wasting: Time. I am a worrier and I waste too much time thinking and worrying about things I have no control over.
Sewing: I can sew by hand but I cannot sew on my sewing machine, the thread always gets bunched up.
Wishing: For peace and calm in the world. Sorry if this seems like a “Miss America” answer but I am sometimes overwhelmed by all of the sadness in the world and wonder if God is trying to send us a message.
Enjoying: Pumpkins. I love them, orange, white, grey, pink, whatever the color, size or shape I want to bring them all home with me.
Waiting: To have my first piece of pumpkin pie!
Liking: Plaid, Fall colors and warm cozy clothes.
Wondering: If I have what it takes to complete the 200 hour teacher training classes for yoga. I am actually a shy, introvert and the thought of teaching a class scares the heck out of me and takes me so far out of my comfort zone I can’t tell you.
Loving: My new haircut and “winter color”, basically the same as before but no highlights.
Hoping: To be with my family for the holidays. And to take a few photography lessons this winter.
Marvelling: That I survived my August challenge. I attend hot Vinyasa yoga 5 days a week, an hour a day. I challenged myself for the month of August to attend 2 classes a day either back to back or one in the am, once in the pm. It was the most physically and mentally challenging thing I have done to date and I am proud that I was able to do it.
Wearing: My Fall/Winter wardrobe, Minnetonka slippers, a comfy sweatshirt and flannel pj’s.
Following: The weather forecast.
Noticing: All of the suffering in the world these last few weeks with the hurricanes.
Knowing: Life is short. My sister lost her fiancee 13 years ago and last night his son passed away. Hug the ones your love and ALWAYS tell them you love them.
Thinking: Lately, I have been thinking that I need to live more “in the moment.” My mind runs off worrying about stupid stuff and I am missing out on the present.
Feeling: Happy that Fall is on the way. I am looking forward to lazy weekends, wrapping gifts, making cookies and getting ready for the upcoming holidays.
Bookmarking: Many recipes on Pinterest for comfort food, Mexican recipes, desserts/cookies of the holidays.
Opening: My mind to the possibilities of new adventures and activities this year.
Giggling: At the antics of my pups Pisa and Paris.
That is what is going on in my world, what about you? What are you, liking, making, feeling?
If you would like to answer your own set of questions here they are. If you post them on your blog let me know I would love to read what is going on in your world.
Have a great day!
