What’s Up Wednesday October 2018
Happy Wednesday everyone!
What I’m eating this week…we have been making use of those slow cookers for Crocktober Fest! Lots of delicious soups and comfort food. Here’s a few recipes that we have made!
What I’m reminiscing about… I’m reminiscing about the days when I had a lot more freedom. I haven’t shared a ton of public information about this but I decided to apply for a part time job at a restaurant and have already begun working. I have some graduate school loans that I want to finish paying off so this money will be going towards more principal loan payments. I work full time and also manage this blog so life is going to become quite busy for me.
What I’m loving…I’m loving our new couches! We scored big on these reclining leather sofas through Facebook marketplace. I also purchased two big rugs!
What I’ve been up to…I’ve been training for my new part time job. So far, I have really enjoyed getting to learn about the culture of this restaurant. I failed to mention this is a brand new restaurant so everyone is learning at the same time!
What I’m dreading… Getting sick! I’m concerned more so about this since I’ll be working more. I’m doing what I can do stay healthy but it’s the sleep factor I’m concerned about.
What I’m working on… On the home front, we have been cutting and painting trim, base boards, and crown molding.
What I’m watching… Season three of Man in the High Castle recently premiered on Amazon Prime so I have been watching this show. I can’t do anything on the side during this show because I will miss something!
Laundry folding means time for Gilmore Girls.
Dinner with Shay means watching an episode of Parks and Rec.
Anddddd exercising in the mornings (running in my living room) means catching up on This Is Us. If I didn’t exercise while watching this show then I would be stuffing my face. This show is so emotionally charged at times!
What I’m reading… I posted part one of my Fall Book Review here. Part two is coming up once I read a few more books. Here’s what I’ve read as of lately:
Here is what I’m currently reading and have on my nightstand:
What I’m listening to… Naturally Christmas music has been on repeat. To help me relax in the afternoons at work, I’ve been listening to common church hymns, both acapella and instrumental.
What I’m wearing… Lots of leggings, tunics, and boots!!!
What I’m doing this weekend…Likely working!
What I’m looking forward to next month… I’m looking forward to Turkey Day next month. My mom also has her birthday next month!
Would love to hear how your October has been!
