Happy Friday! It's been a month since I've been able to participate in a Friday Five. Last weekend marked my last long run for a few months (my next half is in February) and I've been taking it easy. This week's theme with Mar, Courtney, and Cynthia is Five Things I Love. (Remember to check out their blogs and wish them a happy two year linkup-iversary!)
A quick look at some of my (current) loves:
Fall Hiking / Camping
I love hiking year round, but the crunchy leaves are such a bonus in the fall. I'm sad Alex and I haven't had time for a fall hike or a camping trip. I'm hoping to make time this weekend, but it's not looking good... maybe November. Sigh.
We're getting into the season where my weekends aren't as full and I'm able to lounge around and be completely lazy on Sundays. A perfect lazy day includes sleeping in til 9, maybe watching CBS Sunday Morning, a tasty breakfast, reading, a mid-afternoon nap, snuggling up with my doggy, and popcorn and wine while watching a movie with Alex.
I haven't been reading nearly as much this year, but I love when I find the perfect book and don't want to put it down until I'm finished.
This time of year marks my transition to hot drinks. I love our one-cup Hot Shot at home. My favorite teas are Bigelow Vanilla Chai and Twinings English Breakfast. I also love Swiss Miss Simply Cocoa.
Kind of random, I know. I just read a short story where the main character roasted pumpkin seeds and remembered how tasty they are. Pumpkin seeds are a staple in my road trip snack pack, but I loooove seeds from a fresh pumpkin.
What's on your list of loves?
