Reading Yes Please from Amy Poehler and feeling ridiculously inspired (and laughing out loud frequently). I need to read more auto-biographies. Actually, I just need to read more.
Adjusting to the end of Daylight Saving. Even though I adore getting that hour back, I’ve been up at 5 a.m. every day since we turned the clocks back. At least there’s some more guilt-free Facebook time, right?
Smiling every time I think of how Aidan surprised me by coming home from college on Halloween, my high holiest of days. It was the best surprise that I can ever recall.
Loving the new Taylor Swift album 1989 after just one listen. (And yes, I have seen this awesome SNL commercial.) It’s not that I’m surprised that I like her. I mean, I like her in theory because she just seems like a pretty cool young woman, but this album is really, really good.
Getting my Canon 5D cleaned later today. I know, the life I lead. But honestly? I haven’t had it cleaned since I bought it (maybe four years ago? or five?) and there are spots showing up through the lens, on every lens, which leads me to believe it’s the sensor. Going to a local camera shop to get ‘er done.
Working on holiday products already because it’s almost December and it’s time to start doing that sort of thing.
Listening to a Christmas mix I made last December while working on said products and I can officially say it is the earliest in my entire life I have ever listened to holiday music. Gotta admit: it helps the holiday vibe to flow.
Exercising and eating well to take care of this body of mine. Oh WAIT! That’s on the Totally NOT Doing This At All List for November. My bad.
Thinking about why I’m not taking care of myself the way I could be.
Preparing to learn some more hows and whys of the Word Press platform. I got things to do, people.
Wearing the same swing cardigan every day. It’s by Jennifer Adams and I got it at Costco last year. I throw it on every day and it’s good for two reasons. 1. If a hot flash hits, you can throw it off like that! and 2. Chub camouflage. Oh, and 3. Fashion’s not really my thing. I just read an article somewhere talking about Steve Jobs wearing the same thing every day. Granted, he was by all accounts a difficult person, but at least he didn’t waste energy on fashion choices, right? Oh yeah, Einstein? He did that too. Such good company to be in. Ahem…
Tolerating the process of waking up a teen aged boy every Monday through Friday. I’ve tried the whole, “USE YOUR ALARM TO GET UP” thing. So far, it hasn’t worked.
Anticipating the arrival of my new iPhone 6. Yep. I did it. I stole my daughter’s upgrade for myself. Shhhh. She swears she doesn’t read my blog.
What’s happening for you, in the here and now?
Designer Digitals has done some upgrading to their site and one of the upgrades I’m really excited about is that they now accept PayPal. I love using PayPal for my own online shopping. I like to joke that it doesn’t feel like real money is being exchanged, but the truth is that it’s a very secure way to shop. Check out the new look here.
