Things I am Currently Obsessed with…A List.

1. Trader Joe’s coffee beans. The. Bomb.

2. Whipping cream. Thanks to my dear friend, Vee. She turned me on to whipping cream for my coffee, in the Winter, many, many years ago. I am hooked.

3. Tony Stark, Phil Coulson, Steve Rogers and everything that is the Marvel Comics Movies.

4. Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Butter. Actually leaned against the counter this evening and ate it straight out of the jar with a spoon. *not for the first time*

5. Colleges and Universities in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Four, specifically. In no particular order: Radford, Ferrum, Shenandoah, and Averett. Coincidentally, The Wild Boy is has applied to these four Virginia schools.

6. Advent. I mean I love Christmas, but Advent is consuming me these days. Advent is from the Latin word coming. It also means expectant waiting and preparation for the birth of Jesus. I have a handful of Advent Devotionals and have already begun reading them and using them for my Quiet Time.

7. English Muffins. I actually purchased a set of English Muffin molds. I haven’t made them yet, but I plan to. English Muffins are so very delicious with TJ’s Pumpkin Butter, by the way.

8. Apples. With or without peanut butter. And in pies, breads, and crisps.

9. My acupuncture appointments. My next one is today at 9:30. I am, for sure, going to get tsk’d at for still not going 99.9% vegan for a three month period. But I’m okay with that. I am, every day, eating more and more healthy. And I am finally feeling well enough to think believe that this week I will start exercising again. So excited!

10. Sleep. I am still not getting enough of it,but I am consistently getting a block of 4-5 solid hours every night. I can definitely tell that this increase in restorative sleep is helping my fibromyalgia pain and fatigue.

11. Writing. The acupuncture, sleep and decrease in pain and fatigue has me needing to write. I need to come up with A Plan. Setting aside time each day to write. The fibro, when I’m in the midst of a flare-up, suppresses everything. The pain and fatigue suppresses everything. Relief from that is letting the creativity flow.

12. Your Comments. I am obsessed with checking my blog for them so keep them coming. Please!

Love you guys. See you tomorrow for Day 5.

  1. Oh for a fresh crisp apple that hasn't frozen on it was to this island. Hopefully this will be a different story next fall. Have you tried cookie butter on a Granny Smith? Even on our dull, less than fresh junk it's amaaaaazing! (Sorry … that does;t help the vegan pursuit much does it?)

  2. Love reading that there is more sleep and less pain and fatigue. So happy that you are taking action to take care of yourself. Selfish benefit for me , you write more! 🙂

  3. So happy for you Susan that things are becoming more manageable. Please take care of yourself!!! Think of you everytime I eat something pumpkin. Made the best muffins ever with Donnie's mom a few weekends ago. Ingredients…a can of pumpkin, a box of yellow cake mix and some of the spices for pumpkin pie right off the recipe on the can of pumpkin. Stir together and bake. OMG…so good. Thought of you as I sat and drank my coffee and downed way too many of them. :). Love and miss ya lots!!!

  4. I MUST try this pumpkin butter. Gotta plan a TJ day – yes, a day. It is a trek to get there from here.

    Also, I love comments too. Not a one this month yet.

    And, yes, that was a hint!

  5. I too love everything pumpkin! Have you ever tried smearing peanut butter on a slice of pumpkin bread? OMG. Heaven. Plus it fills you up…uh, sort of. Maybe after the second slice. Third if you are exercising. Cough, cough. Diane
