Eating: pumpkin and other squashes. In the last week, I’ve made quinoa squash salad, squash soup, pumpkin spice cupcakes, eaten pumpkin pie and drank a pumpkin spice latte. ‘Tis the season!
Exploring: corn mazes. I’d love to take C but it’s hard to coordinate her sleep schedule and our weekend plans. I fear I may have to wait until next year, but she is just so interested in animals these days, I’m hoping I can find out that is open decent hours AND has some farm animals.
Wearing: skirts, tights and boots. I haven’t put my sedentary desk jockey weight back on yet, so I have few pants that fit. Skirts are more forgiving of weight fluctuations and look classically fall with tights and boots.
Admiring: moms with part-time jobs. I love being at work. And I love being at home. In a perfect world, I’d convince my boss to let me work 3 days a week, but I know it’s not going to happen.
Collecting: to do lists. Between cleaning up the yard for fall and losing daytime hours to run errands, I’m finding it hard to keep on top of everything. I got home from grocery shopping at 9:30 last night. Some nights, I’m already asleep by that point.
