So since I skipped September and October, I think it's fitting to wrap this up and start something new tomorrow that I've been thinking about for a few days now. Excited to get it going tomorrow! So this is my final "today I am" for 2009...
Today I am:
Reading: Nothing! Just finished reading The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown. LOVED it. By far my favorite of the three Langdon stories. Started it yesterday morning, finished it tonight!
Listening to: Not much. My two minute commute to work hasn't left me with much time to listen to music. Now that I have a new computer, just need to reload iTunes.... Hoping to get it done later this week.
**Food = nonfat decaf no-whip caramel brulee lattes at Starbucks, Odwalla Chocolate Protein Monsters (still my new favorite breakfast), cheese
**Crafts = Finishing up Katie & Kile's guest book, getting back to my nephew's scrapbook. Waiting on pictures for both from my sister!!
**Workouts = Working out most days now. Still going to the night classes at the YMCA. Had an unexpected sideline a few weeks ago due to the flu. Not sure if I had swine flu or not, but I was grateful I had the vaccine for it and the flu lasted less than 10 days.
**Time wasters = The usual suspects... Facebook. Television. Sleep!
**House = Still purging. Still planning on painting. Working on stripping the paint and stain from a reclaimed window.... lots of time spent, but it will be worth it in the end!
Thinking About: The holidays. Decorating. Christmas shopping. Cookies. Love Christmas!
Planning: Way too many things as usual. Up next? My very own 30 by 30 project...
Dreaming Of: Warmer weather already. I live in one of the mildest climates on Earth. I hate the cold!
Enjoying: Time spent with my husband, time spent with family and friends.
Vowing To: Get that window stripped of paint and sanded next weekend!
Working On: Work. Cleaning. Nothing ever seems to change there.
Excited About: Learning how to make marshmallows (still). It will be done in the next couple of weeks! Spending time with everyone over the next month.
Favorite food I made in the last month: Made a brand new pumpkin pie recipe for Thanksgiving last week. AWESOME recipe. It's a keeper!
Getting out and about: Let's see.... in September we stayed close to home and hung out a lot of the time. In October, I went up to Placerville for my cousin Jamie's baby shower, had a great time! This last month, was sick with the flu at the beginning of the month, but still managed to see New Moon on opening day with Nancy + Mackenzie and had my parents visit for the holiday last weekend.
I am terribly behind and still need to download the cameras, but at least I have this picture to share for the last few months:
The nephew of course, Hollywood as we call him. Loves having a pair of sunglasses and posing for the camera!
