And I have been trying very hard not to look like this:
I may or may not have had this conversation recently:
And I may or may not have stared dismally at this gif for a lengthy amount of time:
It's just been one of those weeks, you know?
But enough about that.
~I have been trying more pumpkin recipes. Pumpkin Coffee Cake was the latest and it was a smashing success. It tasted like really good glazed pumpkin donuts with streusel topping...and it disappeared with astonishing speed. To be honest, I greatly contributed to its disappearance.
~It is both strange and lovely to experience temperatures in the 70ºs and 80ºs in October.
~I am still slightly addicted to Toffee Nut Syrup.
~I have been getting more used to driving in a new area and it is an empowering feeling. However, I am struggling a little to understand how people can be easy-going and friendly when you talk to them in the grocery store and then when they get behind the wheel they go all hard-core James Bond on you. Defensive and offensive driving seems to be extremely necessary.
~This sounds cliché, but I have been struck anew with the fact that often you don't realize or appreciate what you had...until it's gone.
~I will never be too old for coloring books.
~Piano scales have become my bane. I am convinced they are a malevolent force out to slowly devour my very soul.
On that cheerful note, I will be going.
But before I do, I just want to remind you that you're absolutely fabulous. Thanks for reading.
