Planning a Christmas brunch on Saturday for our girls night group. I’m planning to make a crustless quiche but also found some new recipes I want to try. Reminding myself not to overdo and simply have fun.
Enjoying all of my Christmas decorations. Although I have decorated in some form over the last two years, this is the first year since my Mom and Nanny’s death that I wanted to decorate. I have a slight addiction to Christmas Trees (four this year) and I love the Santas that I collected. The holidays can be very difficult after the death of loved ones but in time the enjoyment can come back in some form.
Feeling overwhelmed and sad as I end this college semester of teaching. I’ve had to fail my first student and along with that comes paperwork and extra time I had not planned to give. This semester of teaching has taught me many lessons that I will eventually put into words.
Reading very little other than magazines (and not doing that very often). I haven’t had time to get into any books lately and I always miss the feeling of waiting to find out what is going to happen next in a great story.
Returning to a workout routine after having none for a few weeks. I’m going to alternate between Piyo and cardio. Thinking I may want to consider a return to Pure Barre. If only I were brave enough to try CrossFit.
Preparing for changes again in my routine.My counseling practice is growing and in January I will add more hours. As a result, I am taking a leave of absence from teaching. I’m thankful to see my practice grow.
Saddened by the news in the world. I find myself constantly searching out positive stories. I remind you that the world is not evil and bad.
Wearing my new Ralph Lauren knee high boots. I loved the style so much that I have it in brown and black. Knee high boots are truly one of my favorite things about the Fall and Winter.
Loving on my oldest cat Sasha. As I write this post, she is pushed up next to me on the couch. She is very loving cat but doesn’t like to be held. Love occurs on her terms which usually involves body slams and head butts for belly rubs.
Looking forward to having a few long weekends during the holidays. I am in need of a few days of having nowhere to be at a certain time.
