Reading: Spells for Forgetting by Adrienne Young
Listening: Fifty Words for Rain by Asha Lemmie
Watching: Anyone else watching Dahmer on Netflix? If you haven’t, I HIGHLY recommend it. Evan Peters does a phenomenal job portraying Jeffrey Dahmer in all his sick patheticness. It seems weird to say that we are enjoying the limited series, but Jim and I, for various reasons, are doing just that. Be warned though. It is so psychologically dark that we find we can only watch one or two episodes at a time. There is no binge-watching this one!
Cooking: I spent several months trying out Blue Apron, to the point where the recipes started repeating. Someone else recommended HelloFresh to us, so now we are trying that. So far, I like the recipes a bit more, and they are MUCH easier to make. After finishing a Blue Apron recipe, my kitchen would always look like a tornado. The HelloFresh ones take one or two pans at most with so much easy clean-up. We will try them for a few more weeks and see if we want to continue. If anyone else wants to try them, I have lots of coupons for free meals for either service. Just let me know!
Enjoying: It looks like we are actually getting a true autumn complete with cool temperatures, gorgeous sunny days, and enough rain to encourage the changing colors. No jumping right into winter for us this year!
Planning: There is nothing to plan. The calendar is empty, and we can do whatever we want. It is wonderful and weird all at the same time!
Feeling: For all those who wonder, Jim and I are truly doing well. I won’t lie and say it has been easy. Leaving London to fly back to the US was one of the most difficult things I’ve ever done. However, once we picked up the dogs from my parents and arrived home, I was okay and have been since. For one reason or another, Holly manages to text me at least once a day, and I live for that. Plus, I know her returning flight. Hey, we parents take what we can get!
