This is my favorite month of the year..........the temps aren't quite as cool as I'd like, but fall is definitely in the air. I feel rejuvenated by fall, every year it brings new energies and I soak them up appreciatively.
The shelter is becoming very familiar in a good way. I'm really getting to know my coworkers and some nights we have a freaking blast. I let loose a Freudian slip the other night that had me and one of my coworkers howling!!!!! We have fun.
It's interesting there's never really a need to bring my dinner, we have so much free food at the shelter, good stuff too. Nice yogurts, salads in a wide variety, frozen foods, fruit, so, so much. And generally the cold stuff is reserved walk ups, not for the residents so tons of it doesn't get used.........so I really don't mind eating it, regularly. Last night I took home a box of dry goods along with 10 Noosa mango yogurts. It was nice. The night before I got 24 dark pink roses, they are gorgeous. It's neat the company let's us enjoy the donations too. Obviously certain items are designated for the residents...........but bottom line, so much goes to waste, so why not partake?
I'm heading to Lake Tahoe this weekend. I'll see my nieces, brother, sister and Mom. I know, I know...........covid. We plan to mask and social distance, but dammit we are going to have fun too. It's been a long year, we all need a break. I'm excited to get outta my little encampment for awhile. I feel like I so rarely leave Woodland. I need this. The drive alone is much anticipated.
Tim is out of work again, lost a job and has a bad back. But, according to this morning's announcements he found something, so we'll see. He is not one to be unemployed long....often yes, but not for long.
I've cut out eating out for now, mainly for financial reasons, but also I feel I eat better at home. I've also cut out my Dutch Bros coffee............homemade truly is better. Unfortunately I forgot my coffee cup at work last night so I'll probably pick some up today.......one day a week instead of 5-7 isn't bad. The cut backs make me realize how much I'm wasting on things that I can make better at home. Just shows me I'm paying to be lazy, not great, at all.
I'm craving cooler temps and rain.........feels like years and years since we've seen rain. I truly love the weather here, but the summer's can drag.....especially with no pool access, ugh.
Well, that's basically my week in a nutshell. Really good stuff for the most part.
Take care, hugs.
