All in the course of a month; the weather went from still hot enough to have the air conditioning on, to cool enough to have the windows open without being miserable, to cold enough to kick the heat on for a bit. Welcome to Iowa, if you don’t like the weather, wait five minutes!
There was frost this morning and it’s raining now, but the temperature is hovering around 40; today I’m thankful for the garage! It could be a bit dicey in the morning, but this rain is supposed to be done by midnight.
Speaking of my garage, I didn’t get it cleaned out like I had planned, but I’m sure there will be a few more unseasonably warm days coming up. So I’ll tackle it then, or maybe not til the Spring. It’s not a dire need to clean it out.
This weekend has actually been fairly productive. I finished one book and read another one. Goodreads does a Reading Challenge every year; I set mine at 50 originally and have since changed it to 70; but I’m already at 65, I’m certain I will read at least 10 more before the end of the year. I think 80 might be a better goal.
I made Scentsy samples for the Trick or Treat trail before the in town Trick or Treating on Tuesday; got those labeled and bagged. I’ve got all my laundry done, but as usual, it’s folded all over the floor. But folded is better than in the basket! I made another batch of Chili so I should be good to go for a week or so; I don’t make a huge batch.
I was asked at the beginning of the month by my Scentsy mentor to make a video and share what I’m going that’s yielding me the results I’m having. Video terrifies me. But I said I’d do it, and I had 4 weekends to do it, and waited til the last one to do it. I think once I get going I’m fine, it’s just starting it.
I think my sour mood from last week is gone! I had a bit of a pity party for one last night, but all is well. Yes, I’m the one who did the breaking up, but it doesn’t make it suck any less. Yes, it’s what I wanted because I wasn’t getting out of it what I thought I deserved, but it still kinda sucks, single. Especially around the holidays.
I haven’t had a nap all weekend, proud of myself for that. I was in bed by 9:30 on Friday and 11 last night. Of course I read for a while first, but I think my body is finally getting used to sleeping well. I was up at 7:30 and 8 this weekend. It’s amazing just what a regular sleep schedule is like, with good sleep!
I suppose, off to start a new book and begin the busy week.
