This month has had its ups and downs. Returning back to work, dealing with the anniversaries of the death of my dog Sweetums and my first cousin Sweetums, and still trying to get my RA into remission. But there were some happy moments this month and with that lets get this party started!
Here is what I loved for the month of September:
--A random stranger on 14th Street shouting at me "Work that strut girl!" Made me feel powerful and in charge.
--Someone took sidewalk chalk and drew an arrow and underneath it wrote TO HAPPINESS. Nice to see some P.M.A. in the hard knocked life city known as New York.
--The return of football! I am not the biggest fan but it is a fun sport to watch.
--This video has a great message. LIVE IN THE MOMENT people!
--This video is ME to a big ole capital T:
--Seeing a young cute couple holding hands when exiting the turnstiles and going up the stairs at the PATH station. I remember those young love kind of days. Brought a big smile to my face.
--Declaring my school year NO STRESS NO BULLSHIT. My health is much more important than stress and bullshit. I want to be healthy. End of story.
--This cover of Empire State of Mind by Halestorm. Thanks to Rich Concannon for sharing it:
--Going to The Sands hotel and casino in Bethelehem, PA and getting carded as I entered the casino. I must look that young or when in doubt...
--Taking care of the outdoor cats around my house by leaving out food and water in my backyard. Unfornuately due to allergies and my little old man dog Hudson the cats can not come inside but it is nice to take care of them.
--Having a friend of mine call out an African money scammer and posting it on YouTube. Watch it:
--That the chicken wings at Hu Kitchen have returned to the menu!
--The new song "Going to Hell" by The Pretty Reckless. Check it out:
--The cider doughnut scented candle from Bath and Body Works. Smells so good and is putting me in an Autumn state of mind...
--My nerdy bff Veronica and her husband/my fellow Nerd Herder Damian are in the midst of making a full length feature zombie film and I could not be any prouder that they are achieving their dreams. They released a short teaser. Go check it out:
--SWEATER WEATHER RETURNING! Love the brisk Autumn air and cozying it up under a soft cable knit sweater. So glad Summer is over.
--Getting excited for all things October! I have not been this excited in a long long time. I think it is due to my health/RA finally getting under control and I can start to be Dani again with some new twists.
--Changing bad habits when I had a rough week/hard week at work or in life. The old me would sit on her bed and gorge herself full of sweets and bad food. Now when I had a rough week I go swimming, do some laundry, light some candles, read, watch some television with a big mug of green tea. I felt so much better too.
What made you swoon and double over in love this month?
