Where did April go? It seems like it was just Easter - but now the end of the month is only a week away! Crazy! Here's what is currently going on in my world these days!
Reading: Scaling Down: Living Large in a Smaller Space. I've been very intentional about purging and de-cluttering over the past year but I know that more can be done. This book was recommended in a blog post I read months ago and my upcoming move inspired me to request a copy from the library.
Loving: smashed avocado on toast. My favorite fast week night dinner is gluten free toast with half an avocado smashed on it and the other half cut up with scrambled eggs with salsa. Mmmm.
Thinking: about all the things I want to do this summer like visit state parks in the area, take a trip with Phil to the north shore of Lake Superior to do some hiking, and soak up time at the lake with my family.
Frustrated: with the weather. It's been cold and super windy this week and we had snow flurries on and off on Wednesday. I know April in Minnesota is rarely nice but it's tough to go back to this cold, crappy weather after spending a week in the 70s! Come back spring!
Feeling: like I am entering that time of year where my calendar is getting a little too full. I have some fun things planned so I can't complain but between a full calendar, my upcoming move, and a business trip the week after my move, I feel a little bit overwhelmed when I look at my planner.
Anticipating: my half marathon on Saturday. I don't have a goal for it, I just want to have fun and see what kind of pace I can sustain. Fingers crossed the windy weather moves on before race day.
Watching: Garfunkel and Oates on Netflix with Phil. It's a very quirky show about two female singing comedians but it's very entertaining. We are savoring the episodes as there are only 8 at this point.
Sad: that I know several people who have been laid off from their jobs in the past week. I hate hearing about people going through stressful situations like that.
Working: on planning a running club volunteer night. We will be volunteering at Feed My Starving Children which is an awesome organization!
Grateful: that my body has been handling the longer runs I've been doing lately. It gives me confidence that I will be able to run the marathon in October (I'm very paranoid that something is going to happen that will prevent me from running it).
Listening: to Mat Kearney's album when I am in the car (which is rarely these days). His new album is excellent!
Wishing: that I didn't have to move. I know I am lucky that I get to stay in the same building and rent a similar unit, but moving is such a pain.
What are you currently anticipating, grateful for and wishing for?
