A Few of My Favorite October Things

I intended to write this post on Thursday since it was the last day of October and all, but then I didn’t. I’d love to tell you that I was out having crazy Halloween fun, but I wasn’t. I was very busy with trick-or-treaters (we had a ton! We were out of candy by 7:30…and I was stingy) and then with grading, because I’m awesome.

Anyway, October was good to me, and I’m a little sad to see it go. Here are some highlights (in no particular order):

  • Fantastic weather. Yes, we had some cold and a little snow, but not much. Most days were like this:
    Not a cloud in the sky.

    This weather has been ideal for the last few days of consistent outdoor running. Once the time changes tomorrow, I’ll be logging a lot of treadmill time. Dark and I are not friends.

  • My PR Marathon. You can read about Rock ‘n Roll Denver here.

  • Funny Halloween decorations all over town. 

    I run by this every day, and I laugh out loud every time.

  • A weekend getaway to the mountains. I posted about it on Wednesday; it was much-needed and wonderful.

  • Some quality time with the husband.

    October was busy at work, and the weekends were full, too, but we had a few evenings of just chillin’ on the couch together, and they were wonderful.
  • Working on my artistic skills by making my boss a Bosses’ Day card.

    I’m a very talented artist. If you want to custom-order some cards, you let me know.

October, I will miss you. November, let’s make you rock!

What were the best parts of your October?

Related to none of that: I follow blogs with Feedly, and I’m not loving some of its new updates. Is bloglovin’ better?
