Happy Wednesday! It seems like this week is going by fast. Which has not been the case lately. Often in the past month or so I'll find myself absolutely sure it's Thursday on Tuesday, or Friday on Wednesday, but this week I feel like, Wow, It's already Wednesday! Time is a tricky beast.
Here's what I've been doing this past month of not knowing what day of the week it is...
Listening To: The album I've had on repeat lately (until I get so sick of it I won't be able to listen to it again for a year, because that's how I do music) is The Great Detachment by Wintersleep.
Watching: The new season of Brooklyn 99 and New Girl. Also I've been watching movies on Friday nights, most recently Notting Hill and The Proposal.
Reading: I picked up Ann Patchett's new book, Commonwealth, from the library today and am excited to get started. She's one of my favorite authors.
Feeling: A little anxious. And scatter-brained. I feel like I'm always trying to do five different things at the same time, and I'm always remembering something else that I can't forget to do. I need to focus on single-tasking. One thing at a time. Focus. Finish. Then, and only then, move on to the next thing.
Craving: To sleep all night long. This week has been especially difficult with multiple wake-ups each night because Abel is teething and Swede has a cold.
Wearing: Scarves! One thing I like about having short hair again is that my hair doesn't get tangled up when I'm wearing a scarf or a hoodie. I also love that when I add a scarf to jeans and a t-shirt it makes me feel instantly more put together. [Although remember that I work at home. In an extremely casual town. So the bar is low.]
Thinking about: Attempting to make Swede a penguin costume for Halloween. She decided that she wants to be a penguin but I can't find a single pre-made penguin costume that is remotely cute. I am not the craftiest person in the world, but I think I can manage to follow this tutorial. I'll let you know how it turns out.
Praying: To be more intentional about what I say, with a focus on being positive and encouraging.
Loving: Fall! The changing leaves are so beautiful and I love the crisp feeling in the air in the morning and evening. Plus the opportunity to wear scarves and sweaters and boots. And to make all my favorite soups and stews and pumpkin-flavored treats.
Not Loving: Fall. Specifically, as the harbinger of winter darkness. It's so hard to get up in the morning when it's still pitch dark. Daylight savings will help in the morning but then it's so dark in the evening. I'm contemplating the Illuminati Reflective Run Jacket from Title Nine for evening runs.
Looking forward to: I'll share more about this next week, but we are moving into a new house in October! I'm not looking forward to the actual packing and moving process, but I can't wait to be settled in our new home.
And that's all for today! I hope you have a lovely Wednesday.
