Around The House (A Life Examined)

Giraffe Dreams posted this on her blog today and I thought I would do it for me.

Around The House: October

Reading: Younger by the Day 365 Ways to Rejuvenate Your Body and Revitalize Your Spirit by Victoria Moran

Enjoying: Fall in New England. Colorful leaves and cool, crisp evenings. Perfect weather for snuggling under quilts.

Learning: That being a grandma is loads of fun and gives me plenty of reasons for staying healthy and young at heart. I call this pose: What's Up? I'm the Big, Bad, Mr. E!
Watching: I love watching football and crime and medical shows, including NCIS (both of them), The Mentalist, Criminal Minds, Trauma, Mercy, Three Rivers, The Forgotten, The Good Wife.

Anticipating: A reason to make Pumpkin Tiramasu from Baking Delights. Anyone want to come over for dessert and espresso?

Realizing: The Hotel Man will be home in 24 hours from his two-week trip traveling around the world. Yup, that's right. He flew from Boston to Hong Kong, Hong Kong to London, London to Venice and tomorrow he flies from Venice to Boston. Woohoo!

Pondering: What to make for Christmas gifts this years and who will get them.

Studying: Learn a Stitch, Create a Scarf from Leisure Arts. See that pile of yarn at the top? I've already chosen two scarves to make from the book.

Wondering: How do I to get used to a body that is going through peri-menopause? I'm open to any suggestions you want to share.

Remembering: My father as I was growing up. He taught me how to be a frugal shopper, yet enjoy what I bought.

Praying: I'm praying for my aging parents.

What you are doing this month?
Sweet P

Oh I watch all those shows while I stitch.
Being a grandma is the best and only gets better.
Pre- menopause, well see a doctor and a blood test will be an accurate indicator if you are going thru it. Many natural remdies available . Mr. E will keep you young. Will you be posting the recipe for the pumpkin Tiramusu??

You're not watching Backyardigans with Mr. E?? My Carter loves it and he gets to watch one episode before nap.
