the sunday currently, volume 8.
reading not one thing! i haven't even picked up my nook since i've arrived here in wilmington - & when i did last night, the battery was dead. now i'm on a mission to find the charger. because i must [absolutely must] finish the happiness project this week. i'm writing it on my to-do list, which means it will be done.
writing not nearly enough. i found a little ink-and-paper journal that i had started not too long ago, to simply record my daily feelings. i think maybe i'll get back into that this week. it provides a lot of insight into myself.
listening to cars zoom by. we have a corner apartment on a busy road, so sometimes there is a lot of noise. i don't mind, though, because i absolutely love our apartment.
thinking that my new lease on life is going to be a lot more productive. and satisfying. and happiness-producing. maybe one day i'll write about the epiphany i had. but for right now, i'm just stewing in its new-ness.
smelling freshly-brewed pumpkin spice coffee. need i say more? i think i'll keep the pumpkin spice around until the day after thanksgiving. that's when i like to begin celebrating the christmas season. for me, the anticipation of listening to christmas songs, putting up christmas decorations, etc., is what makes it so special. plus, i love the fall time holidays, halloween & thanksgiving. i don't like the idea of rushing right through them.
wishing bad dreams didn't exist. last night, i had my first nightmare since moving here. it was horrible, & i am still tired, because i didn't sleep well.
hoping that i can continue to have phone dates with my lovely friends. i got to talk to laura on friday afternoon, & i really think it made my entire weekend that much better. it's so important to stay in touch with your friends. and it provides a comfort & understanding like no other.
wearing a huge yellow sweater & black yoga pants. i know, charming. but i am about to get dressed, because we are going for breakfast, then hopefully seeing the new bond movie. i love bond movies.
loving that i finished my scarf this past week. it is cozy & just how i wanted it to be. i probably could have made it a bit longer, but i'll save that for the next one. i am so glad diane taught me to knit a couple of years ago. i've really enjoyed being able to use a skill to create something!
wanting to get more christmas shopping done. justin & i bought our inaugural christmas present last night, & it felt SO GOOD to begin what is sometimes quite stressful. [i may not want to start celebrating christmas just yet, but there's no time too soon to begin christmas shopping, seriously.]
needing to have a good stretch. my body has been aching a lot lately, & my muscles are so sore. i think it's because i've been working out, yet neglecting to stretch. i should know better, really. i think i'll look up some stretching videos on youtube tomorrow.
feeling quite sore, like i said above. i do plan to remedy that this week, though.
clicking the reading list i've compiled of my favorite blogs. everything you'll find on that list is, in my opinion, the best of the best in inspiration & entertainment [why does this sound like a commercial? i mean this stuff, people!]. i was clicking through it last night & realized there are some bloggers i need to add to that list. so be sure & check it out later this week, as i'll try to add them tomorrow. something else i've been clicking? jenna marbles videos. they. are. hilarious. oh, & i'm not clicking the sunday secrets because i read them when they went up promptly at midnight.
what are you doing?
