I need your help: I was invited to a cookie exchange and I’m not sure what kind of cookies to make! If you have a go-to recipe for your favorite kind of cookie, I would really appreciate it. I’m thinking of going with peanut butter cookies with m&ms, but that seems extra plain.

Happy Halloween! Even though the weather is in the low 80*s this week, it feels like Fall. It isn’t fully dark by the time I get out of work, which is nice, and I’m waking up before sunrise, which feels extra rough when you’re not on your way to the airport for a vacation or piling into the car for a bit trip. I had a great phone conversation on Tuesday that is helping me get over my imposter syndrome and my favorite work thing (Halloween event for 100 trick-or-treaters from United Way) was on Wednesday and I dressed up as Poison Ivy!

 

This week’s Essential Reading:

  • Rintu’s current favorite thing to do is sit and watch all of the videos on Maru the Cat’s YouTube channel. He also got his head stuck in a bag of potato chips the other day and I’m more upset that I didn’t move fast enough that I didn’t get a photo than I am with the spilled chips (and obviously terrible kitteh-mama skills of mine)
  • I’m in the somewhat constant process of purging a lot of things that seem to accumulate all of a sudden…piles of junk mail and things to be shredded, magazines, small handwritten reminders, clothes that never get put away…and I came across this reminder from Apartment Therapy about the 7 things you may forget to clean so of course I’m now purging and deep cleaning like a madwoman
  • Katie’s camping mini-album is rad and Kelly’s Project Life pages with photos from her Palm Springs trip has me itching to get out of town
  • Blogger networking that doesn’t suck your energy
  • Follow your passion (even if you don’t make money from it!) and thank your supporters
  • Build your creative tribe

No pressure or anything, but there are less than 70 days left in 2014.

That’s only a few weeks left to finish projects…but I’m okay with that because that permission I gave myself a few weeks ago is going pretty strong. I recently gave myself permission to go to bed early instead of working on a new landing page. I gave myself permission to spend a little longer at the climbing gym than I originally planned instead of getting home to vacuum during a decent hour (I hate being that neighbor who thinks it’s ok to vacuum at 9:00 pm). Telling myself that it’s ok for me to take more time for myself rather than crossing things off of my to do list has been great. It’s also keeping me motivated to work on projects instead of getting burned out from forcing myself to work on a project when I know I could be doing something else.

So give yourself permission to spend a little more time on yourself this weekend.

I’m still riding the 30 Days of Lists high and I’m looking forward to sharing my full album of lists from this previous round with you. I like to wait a few days to allow Listers to finish up their projects before I share my lists here. If you would like access to the 30 Days of Lists September 2014 edition, click here.
