 I feel like I’m closing down the fun and preparing for hibernation.  I have spent the few days hauling out all of our stuff from the camper, washing all the things, wiping the camper down, washing allllll the things, and I’ve  started to pull out warmer clothes.  My least favorite part of the year.  The pretty fall has now passed and the chilly/rainy/windy/winter is coming fall is barreling in.  While I do love sweatshirts and tea, I REALLY love warm days spent on the beach!  Besides these household tasks this is what I am up to currently…

Reading:   A Fever in the Heartland: The Ku Klux Klan’s Plot To Take Over America, And The Woman Who Stopped Them by Timothy Egan

Loving: That my youngest is in preschool three days a week and I am getting some “alone time.”  I am super productive and also super lazy.  I have been able to have breakfast with a few friends/family, grab groceries, do some big cleaning/purging projects and work on some projects.  I am also loving that my oldest is embracing her love of writing and joined a writing club that meets at this really cool location in town.

Feeling: so sad for humanity.  I am gutted by the events in Israel and Gaza.

Anticipating: the chaos of the holiday season.  I need to figure out our plans.  We have a couple of friends' 40th birthdays to celebrate and I am already excited about spending my 40th in Florida on the beach with my family in March!

Struggling: getting my butt back into working out.  I was on a 3 month streak and a illness knocked me out and I never jumped back on the train.  After I get the downstairs put together for the winter with all our camping stuff cleaned and stored it must become a priority again.

Grateful: my warm house, my safe and healthy babies, my awesome husband, my healthy parents, and the ability to stay at home.

Working: on organizing and cleaning, woohoo. :)

Listening: all kinds of podcasts.  Right now as I type, Appodlachia, a podcast hosted about Appalachia by Applachians!

Watching: Only Murders in the Building and Vanderpump Rules

Wishing: for peace and safety FOR ALL.
