My Everyday Life [Weeks 45 & 46]

Week 45 started with Halloween. I am not a big fan of the holiday, but this cat fan can't resist wearing cat ears that a colleague brought into the office. 

Craig got his 23andMe test in the mail! Can't wait to see his results. 

I picked up this local applesauce and it's delicious. I liked that there were no added sugars. 
The Google Home came out and my technology loving husband couldn't resist picking one up. It's pretty cool and handy. My favorite thing is the quiz show.
 A pretty sunrise.
I started a plant-based eating challenge the week of Halloween. I actually did really well with it. Then the election hit and I needed comfort food in the form of chocolate. I figured I would just listen to my body and go with it.
 Tried mulberries for the first time. They're pretty good in overnight oats.
Instead of using half & half in my coffee, I added coconut milk. It was a nice change, but I did miss the creaminess of half & half. 
My view as I went on a fall walk around a nearby subdivision.
 Tanzi looking pretty.
Love walking through the leaves!
Listening to podcasts and wearing my favorite Old Navy workout top in the best color ever.
 Ginger Tanzi again.
 Tofu scramble with spinach, yum.

Last week just depressed me. The happy photo below was taken after we got back from voting. I was excited for a different election outcome. I don't want to be too political, but this is my blog after all and I am entitled to say what I want. As I watched the news, I literally felt sick. How could he be ahead? Who were these people that voted for him and why? Well, they turned out to be people like my own family and friends. I went to bed early that night and woke up at 2:50 a.m. after I had nightmares about him becoming President. I turned to look at my phone and sure enough, my nightmare came true. I shed tears for our country and for those that may be negatively affected by this outcome. Craig and I discussed the results and were angry. Alas, those of us who wanted a different outcome must move on and be positive. I can't wait for 2020 when 40 year old Lisa can vote again.
I started an Interior Design class this week and here's my homework. It's really interesting so far! I'll never look at a home or commercial design the same again.
Kitties always make things better! I spent a lot of the weekend cuddling them and trying to move on. Yoga also helped and I decided I must start practicing it more because I felt like I lost all of my strength!

  1. Agreed, last week was depressing. I found it interesting to see that I live in a very blue county, in what turned out to be a red state.
