Watching | Game of Thrones
> Thank you Sling for having a free HBO weekend! We were half-way through re-watching Season 6 when Mr. Misadventures got an email announcing a free weekend of HBO for Sling subscribers. We power-watched the second half of Season 6 and binged watched Season 7 in 2 days. I thought I was going to have to wait until next year to see it, but I am all caught up.
Now we have been re-watching Marco Polo which I absolutely love. I am devastated that Netflix canceled the show due to high production costs. I know that if that if the writers had been aware that there wouldn’t be a Season 3, they might have spent less time developing backstories on everyone and focused more on Marco Polo. Such a shame!
Reading | The Girl in the Spider’s Web
Well, Dan Brown’s The Templars came out and I quickly scooped it up but I am still at the beginning of The Girl in the Spider’s Web as I have had ZERO time to read. I hope to remedy that once we are settled into our house. If nothing else, I am going to have to do some serious power-reading on the plane to Paris at Christmas!
Working On | The house.
> Mr. Misadventures did most of the prepping, but we had carpets pulled in 4 rooms and tile put down (would love to have wood floors, but Arizona has serious termites, who knew?); the whole house was repainted, all new appliances were put in and now we are unpacking. Well technically, we’ve unpacked, this is the first week living in the house, so we are getting settled in and re-organizing.
Feeling | Grounded
> So much bad stuff happened the second week of October that I just want to quietly count my blessings. A friend passed away, another friend’s brother was killed in a motorcycle accident, friends and co-workers were evacuated or lost their homes in the California wine country fires, and my boss got laid off, which always makes one nervous… I’m hoping for better weeks but also understand that this is just life. It’s how we move on that matters.
Planning | A site redesign
> Finally. It’s been a long time since I made any significant design changes and as I continue through my ninth year and look into the tenth, Mr. Misdaventures and I have big plans to focus more on the blog. I am working with someone I feel comfortable with and the process won’t be rushed, so you won’t see anything until January 2018, but it’s happening!
Loving | That I made my weight goal!
> I had a weight loss goal and a stretch goal, can’t help it, I am a type-A corporate gal… I made it to my stretch goal. I lost 35 pounds in a little less than 5 months. I weigh less than I did in my 30’s, less than I did in most of my 20’s and I feel great! Mr. Misadventures still has a bit to go so I will be continuing to eat the same way in support of him. I think one of the biggest success factors was doing our lifestyle change together. Once we have both reached our weight goals, we’ll figure out how to balance our desired weight with adding in more carbs.
My Favorite Photo | Balloon Ascension.
The post is coming to you tomorrow! The Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta was an amazing-must-do-at-least-once-in-your-life-but-really-go-every-year experience. You can write about the experience, you can capture the activities, on camera, but you truly can’t understand it unless you are standing in the middle of it all.
