The Fall weather has finally arrived. But boy was it ever hot in September. We had a couple of days here in the San Francisco Bay Area where it was over 100 – like 107, 108. This hardly ever happens where I live. To say I was uncomfortable in my two-story home without air conditioning is an understatement. But alas Fall has arrived and with it cooler temperatures.
Here is my September month in review. Enjoy!
Loving: My Fall drinks at Starbucks. The Maple Pecan Latte is wonderful!
Reading: During the month of September, I read Come Find Me, Sage Parker by Aliza Latta. What a beautiful story that brought me to tears at the end. I highly recommend it!
Shopping for: I bought a new fall table runner for my dining room table and I love it. Non-traditional fall colors. I’m still on the hunt for more fall decor. My friend Melissa shared this post about Dollar Store Decor for Fall.
Excited about: Beginning to shop for Christmas. We are a “cash only” family so we have to start early. Actually, I should have started in July.
Working on: Trying to eat healthier and get more sleep. I have good days and bad. One step forward, one step back.
Enjoying: Time away from the computer. I use to feel guilty not getting on every night to respond to comments, link share, etc. But it’s good to take a night or two off during the week.
Using: BB Cream for my foundation most days. I like the lighter coverage.
Wearing: I’ve been living in my Christmas pajamas and black t-shirt. Well, not to work, but I wish.
Planning: Thanksgiving. I will be hosting my in-laws this year and perhaps my husband entire side of the family. We already have 9 living here and well, we have no space. But we will make it work.
Singing: I’ve been singing along with Jeremy Camp this week. New CD is out. Look for my review soon.
Learning: Some more Excel short cuts at work. I don’t use Excel too much but it’s nice to know beyond the basics.
Wishing (Praying) for: A safer world. The events of the last few days especially have me in tears.
Doing: Lost of picking up around the house. With 7 adults, one toddler and one baby in the house, I’m in a constant state of picking up.
Dreaming of: Taking my husband back to Maui for our 30th wedding anniversary next August. It’s where we spent our honeymoon.
Not crazy (sad) about: All of the violence and blood shed in this world. Really, some days I am like, “Okay Jesus, you can come back any time. I’m ready!” Truth is, the world is not yet ready.
I ended the month of September with this!
Youngest daughter got her permit! She’s actually doing really good, but still, my heart beats really fast every time we get in the car together.
