Good morning, friends! It’s hard to believe, but I’ve been doing these monthly wellness calendars for a full year now. I didn’t expect much when I first started them, but now they’re popular enough that each and every month I get emails from you guys gently reminding me that it’s time to post the next calendar. Ha!
If you’ve never downloaded one of my wellness calendars before, these little guys have a daily wellness-focused challenge. When you put them all together, you’ve got yourself a great start to a healthy month! I like to believe that a healthy lifestyle is built off of a lot of small, daily healthy decisions, and this calendar helps you get there. Download the PDF, print it out and hang it up so you can see it daily.
Thinking…about getting a maid. Does anyone else have one? Is it worth it? We just want someone to come in and do the deep cleaning every month or so. We’re pretty decent about keeping things clutter-free, but deep-cleaning? Psh. Terrible. Who has the time to wipe baseboards?
Feeling…cold. Seriously, where did Fall go? It’s like we skipped right over it. We usually try not to turn on the furnace until December, but man, there was no getting around it this week. Brrrr.
Watching…not much. I got a little movie and TV-ed out last week with my sickness. I reached into the depths of Netflix and watched some seriously horrible shows and movies. Ha! I need a break. Although, we are (slowly) catching up on How I Met Your Mother.
Reading…nothing, really. I need to get to the library.
Excited…to be heading to Canada next week! Craig’s brother eloped earlier in the month, and we’re headed up to his hometown next week to go to their big celebration party. We’re road-tripping it (which we haven’t done in years), and we love road trips! Plus, it’ll be so fun to see all of Craig’s family.
Missing…the blissful, uninterrupted, easy sleep of youth. Everyone mentions wrinkles and aches and pains when they talk about getting older, but no one tells you that sleeping get harder and harder each year you get older. Yawn.
Wondering…why the leaves are so weird this year. Even though it’s almost November, and we’ve already had a hard freeze, most of the trees in this area still have leaves on them. And most of them are even still green. Usually by this time, almost all of the leaves are gone, and if not gone, they have at least turned into bright, brilliant colors.
Working…on a bunch of recipes for my friends at Anytime Fitness, the interior designs for a few cookbooks, a few website redesigns, and holiday card designs for my new online stationery store (exciting!).
Stressed…about how much I have to accomplish this week. Between being sick last week, and heading out of the country next week, the next seven days are all about extreme productivity.
Wanting…someone to come here and process all the green peppers I have sitting in my kitchen. We rescued a full bushel of green peppers from our garden before the freeze came, and now, I have to chop ‘em and freeze ‘em. Ugh. So tedious. But, then again, so nice having green peppers stashed in the freezer for the winter.
Wishing…I could completely shake this cold. I feel so (SO) much better than I did, but I’m still not 100%. I really hope it’s not one of those sicknesses that sticks around all winter long.
Eating…Italian food! Cold weather means comfort food, and I’m all about the pasta and red sauce and pizza and other yummy, heavy Italian-inspired dishes. Also, I recently rekindled my love of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Yum.
Drinking…lots of ice water. Trying to stay as healthy as possible, so I’m chugging the H20, and laying off all the other stuff. Although, in the depths of my sickness, I did have a Sprite or two. I rarely have soft drinks, but man, carbonation is the best when your throat feels like it’s made of sand paper.
Loving…the Standards/Vocal Jazz Pandora station. My fireplace. Not having a real job. Hoodies.
