1. Hurricane Irma. Yep, I live in South FL and that means hurricane season is in full swing. 25 years ago we went through Andrew and suddenly we were facing a hurricane that was described as being worse than Andrew. Let me tell you, I was freaking out and my anxiety went into overdrive. Luckily, we were fine in the end. Just some fallen trees and our fence came down, but nothing major. We lost power, but it was restored sooner than we imagined it would be. We finally got our cable and internet back today, so that was nice (okay, really nice - I even yelled, "Woo hoo!"). All in all, things are good. The town still looks a mess, street lights are still out, some places still don't have power, but everyone is cleaning up what they can and trying to move forward. I'm just counting down the days until hurricane season is over.
2. Books. You would think not having TV would mean that I would read A LOT. Well, that didn't happen. I found myself not wanting to read at all. My mind was just too crowded with so many things, that reading a book just didn't feel right. And then I received some happy mail in the form of two Christmas themed books and suddenly I was eager to read. Yep, a Christmas book caught my eye:
Book Chatter is hosting a read along - check it out and join in on the fun!
3. Fall. Pumpkin spice lattes are in stock, Halloween decor is everywhere (along with Christmas decor - say what!!?) and the hint of the upcoming holiday season is in the air. I absolutely LOVE it!! I just finished putting up the Halloween decorations. I'm already craving a monster cupcake (these delectable treats I make every year). And, I'm excited to watch scary movies. Oh, and The Walking Dead will be starting up again next month - woo hoo! You gotta love Fall.
And now, I'm off to find something new to read. Hope you are all having a wonderful Monday. Happy reading!!
