November has come and gone so I have a new batch of favorites to share with you! I’ve been able to spend some more time relaxing this month so most of my favorites have to do with that. But I also have one running related favorite. No, it’s not the weather. No snow has stayed on the ground yet but it’s been chilly and windy so full-on winter is just around the corner.
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina
I loved the original tv series of Sabrina the Teenage Witch (with Melissa Joan Hart) and watched every single episode multiple times. I’d never read the comic books but when I first heard about the Netflix series, I knew I had to watch it. And I loved it! It took me a couple of weeks to get through it since I don’t watch too much TV solo but it was such a good show to have on to relax and knit. I’m so excited for the mid-winter special!
I get the max amount of vacation time at work (because I’ve been there for over seven years) and it was this month that I realized that I needed to take six days off before Christmas break begins on December 21 or else they wouldn’t roll over. Cue me taking off off a bunch of days, including the entire week of Thanksgiving. And it’s been so nice to not feel as rushed, be able to sleep in and have a much more relaxed day. I’m still keeping a somewhat structured day between workouts and blocking off time to work on this blog.
Hercule Poirot novels
I’ve been slowly dipping my toes into the Hercule Poirot novels over the summer and now I’m determined to make it through all of them! I started out with the audiobook version of The Mysterious Affair at Styles, then read Murder on the Orient Express and now I’m reading The Murder on the Links. If my library had audiobook copies of all the books, I’d go through them much faster (the narrator is amazing) but for now, it looks like I’ll be working through on hard copies.
Running the University of Minnesota
Lately, my long runs have been taken me through the main University of Minnesota campus. It’s a great way to get in extra hills and there’s not as much car traffic either. It’s just quiet and gives me a challenge during my workout. The only downside is there’s a flock of turkeys that are still hanging out there but so far they are keeping to themselves.
