Procrastination Station

I've been parked here for a while now.
I keep looking for something interesting to read. Something to distract me and occupy another bit of time would be nice... And all the while I could be writing that something myself. I kept putting it off and yet the inevitable occurred and here I am. Writing.
To tell you all the things that have happened recently would take forever.
So instead, here are the things I'm looking forward to doing.
I get to visit with some of my sisters this weekend!
By this time next month I'm hoping to have purchased plane tickets for my youngest sister and my mom to come visit me at the end of January next year! I'm also hoping to figure out how to get the rest of my siblings and my dad out here. It's a long trip, but I'm hoping we can work all the details out.
I'm glad it's cooling off outside and now that my landlord put screens in my living room windows, I can enjoy it!!!
It's almost hot chocolate season. I need to restock my peppermint hot chocolate stash.
The holidays are right around the corner and I'm determined to make them stress free.
Those are some of the things I'm looking forward to now that fall is here...
What are you enjoying about the new season?

I have been slacking

However in my defense a lot of things have happened. It's hard to live life and document it at the same time I find.
My mom came to visit.
I'm an aunt now.
My sister lives less than an hour away from me now instead of 2 1/2 days.
I've decided to start job hunting for something a little more flexible.
I bought a couch!
My house is FINALLY starting to be put together and finished. Just a few more projects to go.
September is halfway over and fall is imminent. I'm loving the cooler weather, though I wish we could still have longer days. Life has such interesting tradeoffs.
I'm trying to start cooking more. Again.
I think it's the cooler weather allowing me to turn on the stove/oven that makes cooking more palatable.

Fall. It's the preparation for all those new beginnings.
