Savoring: Every moment of Fall. Little boys jumping in leaf piles made my heart smile this weekend.
Eating: Vegetarian Chili. I used this recipe, given to me by a friend. I made it just a tad too spicy - note for next time - but it was so good and perfect for a chilly Fall day.
Drinking: Pumpkin ales. It's that time of year.
Deciding: It's the end of ice cream season. Lest you think I deny myself, it's the start of pie and cookies season.
Watching: Nashville and Parenthood when Kevin's out of town (as he was last week). Friday Night Lights together. We've both seen the entire series, but while we have Netflix... There's nothing like a little dose of Tim Riggins.
Wanting: Shoes that are stylish, look good with suits and work trousers, and comfortable enough to walk in all day. SO hard to find that.
Listening: To my iTunes library on shuffle. Finding old favorites and bringing back memories.
Needing: To start planning for the holidays. Halloween is next week! Time really starts to fly after that.
Smelling: The "Autumn Leaves" Yankee candle burning in the dining room. And real autumn leaves outside.
Feeling: Optimistic. It's coming more naturally to me these days.
Reading: Defending Jacob. I'm about a third of the way through and totally sucked in.
Making: Lists. Trying to get back into a routine of managing my to-do lists and staying on top of everything.
Needing: A cool-but-not-cold weather trench (or other lightweight) coat. I've tried dozens at this point but haven't found the perfect one. Pretty soon it's going to be cold enough for my winter coat, so whatever. But I'll keep looking.
Wishing: My family lived closer. I've never mentioned that before here, right? ;-)
Missing: My sisters. See above.
Wearing: This sweater. I was worried it would look bulky or old on me, but I absolutely love it.
Enjoying: Homemade granola. Turns out I can still find the time to make it happen.
