I don’t know if I can do this post justice. I am feeling a bit overwhelmed, with good and wonderful things, but overwhelmed, none-the-less. And as I sit to write this, the Buddy Man has a fever and as a mom, I can’t help but be a bit concerned about him.
October was full! I went to Winston-Salem and saw two of my favorite writers together in the same place: Anne Bogel and Charlie Lovett. It was a wonderful experience. But to make it happen, I drove, alone, almost 1600 miles in less than a week. The solitude was a balm to my soul but as the Buddy told me one time, “my booty hurt(s)” and I am not interested in another road trip for a long time.
I did manage to keep my exercise streak going and tonight, it sits at 159. That makes me so happy.
In addition, I have been doing Julia Cameron’s The Artist Way program and Week 4 was reading deprivation week. Yeah! It was almost as bad as it sounds but I got it done. I felt a little antsy all week and figured out later that it was because I couldn’t read. Reading is such a huge part of my life that not doing was noticeably different. Instead, I cleaned out the Buddy’s closet, transitioned both of our closets to fall (which has finally decided to show up), weeded and trimmed the beds in anticipation of cooler weather, potted some plants that I had rooted, and bought new eyeglasses. Maybe, I should take a break from reading more often? I am glad that I can read again though.
I hosted my first ever #EnjoyLife Meet-Up also. Two people showed up! I was so surprised!
An uncle passed away so there’s that.
While the Holidays aren’t generally a time where things slow down for people, they do for me. I am looking forward to it. After I am in-conversation with Anne Bogel on November 7th, that is. I am so excited and so terrified. Interested in coming? Get tickets here.
What has ya’ll October been like?
Let me know, or post a link to your overview, in the comments. We do this every month and frankly, that is the only reason I am writing this post at 9 PM. LOL. We will do it again on Monday, December 2.
