October is a magic month, and it has totally delivered this year. I have been getting all the feels, you know, the cozy, warm and cuddly, want to eat everything spicy, nearing the holidays feels that one gets when the days get shorter and the temperature drops. It's fantastic. The house always smells like a warm pumpkin or baking bread, the pup is happy and not constantly at the verge of having a heat stroke, the mr is has pulled out the hats (his hats really make his beautiful blue eyes pop) and I am rocking my warm wool socks.
I love these days.
This week has held a lot of stuff that needed to be done., but when not doing that stuff, I basically have had my head in a book, I have read 2 & 1/2 books this week (Fan Girl, Last Bite, and The Art of Fermentation) and have pretty much ignored doing anything else in the way of extracurriculars, manily cause the mr has been off doing crazy things (I'll tell you about it later) and I have had a bunch of time to myself. So yeah. when I am alone, I clean, make coffee, and snuggle the shit out to the entire couch and read. It is so great! I love my mr, but man, having the entire couch to myself is amazing! (We have a tiny love seat that only fits 2 humans kind of comfortably) Oh wait, I did take my little sister out for a driving lesson. That was fun. (I am way to lax as a driving instructor.. the mr in the back seat, not so much). She is actually a great driver and I will hire her as my chauffeur when she gets her license. Also, you might already know, I made a huge batch of hot sauce. And still, a few day later, I am finding that I got super hot pepper juice on things that I shouldn't have touched and am having mini burning attacks all the time. So yeah, if you make hot sauce, don't be like me and smear everything with hotness.
But other then that, nothing super exciting has happened this week (besides that mr's thing). We were planning on going camping, but being that we just realized that we no longer have a functional tent , and that my sleeping bag is a pieces of shit and not very warm, we decided it might be best to call it off for now, until we get our gear in shape.
How about you? Have you caved in to the wonders of the fall? Gone leaf peeping or apple picking? Are you hoarding canned pumpkin to sell later on the black market? (Good idea right?) Well, whatever you are doing, I hope you are having fun and taking it easy today.
