Happy Monday everyone! I just flew back
from Sweden yesterday evening and it’s some time in the middle of the night PDT, or lunch time in
Europe, and I can’t sleep, so I thought I would do a quick
“currently” for my trip!
Association of Small Bombs, which I am about halfway through, but am not
loving. It’s okay, but not showstopping. On my vacation, I also read four other
books which were all pretty good, but I will recap those in my September
Loving: The fall colors in Sweden! We don’t get “seasons” very much in
the Bay Area and being in Sweden reminded me of Autumns back home!
Frustrated: that I did not complete my entire hiking goal. However, the weather
was poor and I was camping in a tent and I know I made the right decision. I
just hate “giving up” without reaching my goals.
Feeling: Hungry! When you are carrying all of your food on your
back, you can only carry so much, which for me was about 3,000 calories per
day. When you are hiking 10 – 12 hours per day, you just cannot keep up, calorie-wise.
Ever since I left the trail, I have been carb-loading!!! Okay, really I’ve been
overall calorie loading.
Anticipating: Going over all of my photos and reminiscing all the
good parts of the trip! I did a cursory review and it’s funny how I already
forgot some of the early days. It’s nice to recall them again and again!
Watching: I did not really watch any TV while on vacation, but I did watch a few
movies on the plane: Ms. Stone, When Harry Met Sally and Moneyball to name a
Working: will be interesting today. Usually September is not crazy busy, but I
will have a lot of catching up to do after being gone for two weeks!
Grateful: that I get as much time off of work as I do. Technically I get about 20
days off (4 weeks) and I am required to take ten of the days consecutively,
which I don’t have much of an issue with! I know some people do not get very
much PTO and I feel very glad that I do!
Listening: To audio books: A Man Called Ove, and next up Kitchen House. I did not
really use my phone on the trail as I did not want to run down the battery in
case I needed it for an emergency, so I didn’t really listen to much!
Wishing: the floors would clean themselves. How
is it that I clean everything before leaving on vacation but when I come home,
there is still dirt everywhere? I blame the house elves.
What did you do this weekend?
What are you currently wishing for? What are you anticipating?
