I am pretty happy with how September shook out. We didn't get outside nearly as much as I would have liked (seriously, I am no good at handling a heat wave and a baby at the same time) but I did get my library card and dove back into reading. And I am thrilled to have more photos hung on our walls.
September was also insanely busy as I worked furiously on the Get Quilty eCourse. It's almost ready to launch and I'm at that point that occurs during any huge project where I can't for the life of me fligure out why I decided to do this, so I know I've poured my heart into it. Hoping to add some finishing touches and get that listed in the next day or so.
After wrapping up such a big work project, I always feel like I have oodles of free time. (It's a facade, but it feels that way.) I'm looking forward to some "just for fun" creativity and more exercise this month. My bold intentions for October celebrate that :
- decorate the house for autumn.
- spend 5-10 minutes a day stretching.
- prepare for a 10k race.
The decorating will most likely involve buying pumpkins and stringing felt & paper garlands. Like a crazy person, I signed Paul and I up for a 10k on November 3rd. Partly because I'd love a race as motivation, but mostly because this one looks like a perfect one to run together (there's wine at the finish line). Paul has never ran in an organized race before! This will be my fourth total and second 10k. (Read more about my running adventures here.) And the stretching is because I feel like I spent the last month either hunched over my sewing machine/computer keyboard or holding Ellerie and my shoulders, neck and back are paying for it, big time.
October! I love you, already. Please bring some cooler weather.
