What’s Up With October?



My new planner has a cute page for goals, and what you are currently reading. I kind of had fun with October, so I thought I would share what I’m currently doing:

Reading: “Raising Your Spirited Child” by Mary Sheedy Kurcinka
I haven’t gotten very far, but the beginning seems to describe the Princess in all her glory. I can’t wait to get some tips on how to deal with all of her –because frankly it is exhausting most of the time!

Planning: Spa parties! Lemongrass spa parties of course! All the ones I’ve had so far have been super fun.

Watching: nothing–I’m not interested in most of the things available right now and I just don’t have much time. I’d rather be reading.

Cooking: SOUP–since I’ve started making lunches out of the last five weeks 3 of them have been a soup. See my menu plans for recipes!

Eating: muffins/ quick breads–it has finally gotten a wee bit cooler around here and so I’ve been baking and it makes me happy!

Drinking: coffee with my new dairy-free half and half!

Pinning: pumpkin and snickerdoodle recipes. I just can’t stop!

Crafting: I want to make some fall cards–maybe that will happen before the end of the month!

Loving: pumpkin spice –no pumpkin–just the seasoning!

Dreaming: of moving up in my company–Lemongrass Spa–and making it into leadership

Feeling: excited for even cooler weather–I have yet to unpack my sweaters!

Listening: my favorite podcast: What Should I Read Next by Modern Mrs Darcy

Celebrating: Host A Spa Party Day–it was super fun and I can’t wait until next year’s!

Are you doing any fun things in October?


Currently I’m…


I had several posts started, but none of them got finished today. So I’m going with my favorite: a list!

Currently I’m

Reading: The Bible (Proverbs & Numbers), The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie: A Flavia de Luce Novel, and The Finkler Question. And of course Ramona Quimby, Age 8 to the Princess.
Watching: A Woman of Substance, and Under the Dome
Trying: to come up with more ways to cook vegetables that all three of us will enjoy!
Cooking: croutons to go with my chef salad!
Eating: Peach Coffee Cake. YUM!
Drinking: Orange Infused water!
Calling: My sister to get updates on my new niece
Pinning: Fall ideas, organizing ideas and new recipe ideas
Crafting: Maybe a new planner for next year, coloring in my new coloring book, and anything I can think of that involves wasabi tape/my new label maker, or my sharpie markers.
Enjoying: The flavors of Fall (Pumpkin, cinnamon, NUTMEG!)
Listening to: Chris Rice (He’s mellow and seems to calm both me and the Princess when we’re in a hurry to get to school on time.
Smelling: Coffee!
