The first of the month is always my favorite day. It’s a day for new beginnings…move on from the bad and focus on all the fresh opportunities coming your way.
That being said, sure I could sit here and be all disgruntled with the furlough that I’m experiencing (thank you childish government & your inability to come to an agreement-or at least agree to disagree…) but instead I’m going to embrace the FIRST day of my absolute favorite month; OCTOBER.
I’m still used to waking up at zero dark o’thirty so today I drank my morning coffee and had my first ever overnight oats. Oh my goodness, I’ve been missing a LOT the past few years. They are so good, and so easy.
It was difficult driving into work knowing that I’d be turning around a couple hours later but a gorgeous sunrise gave me time to think and be glad I have a job in the first place.
My co-worker put CAUTION tape on all the offices that belong to those being furloughed–it was some witty humor that is needed in a less-than-stellar situation.
The rest of the day consists of a workout, run, crocheting and making a hearty pot of chili for this first week of October.
Along with the first of the month comes goals for this month:
3. Run 3x a week.
4. Participate in Bess’ Walktober challenge. Perfect reason to get out to clear my mind and enjoy this weather. Speaking of… time to return to sunny, breezy & mid-70s degree day 🙂
Have a good day ya’ll.
