Oh hey there Fun Month! So glad to see you again. October is when I age another year, and I like to celebrate for an entire month. Thus far, 2013 Fun Month has been moving along swimmingly. There’s been puzzles, working out, and house cleaning. My how times have changed since my 20’s!
Still though, I’m a happy camper, and I’ll tell you why.
1. I snapped this photo with my cell phone while running the other day. Yes, that is a woman wearing roller blades in the grass while doing squats with her German Shepherd around her neck. WTF?!?! That was the craziest thing I’ve ever seen around Pacific Beach (the wacky little neighborhood I live in), and I’m STILL laughing about it! I mean I like to work out and all but really? Olive would never stand for this. Sometimes its the smallest moments that keep you smiling for days. I’m super grateful for this kooky neighbor this week.
2. The job perks this week have been off the hook! I’ve gotten 3 giant produce shipments from my friends at Melissa’s which have gotten my imagination running wild. I’m so excited to get in the kitchen this weekend and create. Plus, I got a free month of yoga from one of the other companies I work for. Added bonus: free coffee from Starbucks for my birthday month AND another free cup just from my rewards points! If anyone else would like to send me some awesome stuff, just email me.
3. This is the time of the year when San Diego weather really starts to shine. The evening temps this week have been the PERFECT sleeping-with-the-windows-open-but-comforter-on weather, and its supposed to be around 80 for the weekend highs. I see people on Facebook and Instagram posting about their first snowfall, and I just sit back and count my lucky stars that I don’t live there. Betsy and snow do not mix…..anymore. I love you San Diego!
I’ve loved traveling the last few weeks, but there’s no place like home to me. I’m grateful to be back in my routine, and surrounded by my furry friends. I’ve got a lot to look forward to this month with friends visiting, interesting work projects, and of course, Leila dressing up for halloween. I’ll give you two guesses on her costume…….
I hope you’re all enjoying Fun Month as well. Take a moment and count your blessings today. Gratitude is the foundation for joy.
