several days of awesome

I haven't posted in a few days, but that's a good thing. I have been doing my best to have an awesome month and not treat my life like a to-do list. I have to say, its been working well. October's been great and I've been enjoying the little things more:

Wednesday's Awesome: I had a couple cancellations at work today which allowed me to tackle the giant pile of stuff on my desk. It's always awesome to leave work feeling a little less behind than you were when you came in. Plus, Wednesday is yoga night. I'm feeling much more flexible! And always sleep better after yoga class.

Thursday's Awesome: The weather was spectacular today! Went for a walk at lunch today and took the sweatshirt off. A nice fall walk in short sleeves is always awesome.

Friday's Awesome: The bad thing about Friday was that on my day off, the wonderful weather turned freezing cold and started to rain. BOO! The awesome thing is that the leaves suddenly changed -- poof! -- and the yellows came out in full force. So while I was driving around doing errands, I got a nice foliage show. Just waiting for the oranges and reds to catch up.

Saturday's Awesome: Halloween Party! Despite the downpour that lasted all day and night, we got a good turnout. The theme of the night seemed to be the ocean, as we had three pirates and two mermaids show up. Myself, I was a jelly-fish! Though a lot of people thought I was either a hippy girl or a rastafarian. I'll post pictures as soon as I upload them from my camera.

Sunday's Awesome: Walking on the beach. Once again, we got splendid weather. So after sleeping in to fight off a hangover, we cleaned the house, ate some lunch, took a hot tub before the end of fall drain-the-hot-tub ceremony, and went to the beach for a walk. I love living near the beach. I'm so lucky that way.

we're starting to get the leaf change in force here too. it's beautiful, and one of my favorite things about fall.

I once went to a Halloween party as a pirate. I kinda wish I'd met a cute mermaid there, for no other reason than it would have made an awesome post!
