October: Meals, Miles, Books and Looks

It's been a while since I did one of these and I'm afraid the content is a little lean, but I do like looking back on these to get meal ideas and knowing that I'll be posting about these things helps motivate me.


1. I looked back on previous spring meals and I realised its been a while since I made the traditional new potatoes tossed in butter and oats with asparagus and fish in a dill sauce - perfect welcome to spring!

2. Not one of my meals, but I saw these fun Hallowe'en capsicums at the supermarket haha!

3. Omelette with mushrooms and spinach

4. Another spring classic, pan seared scallops with grapefruit and avocado salad 

Miles: 39.56 km (walking)

I've been making an effort this month to gently get more active and I've been trying to get in a walk most lunchtimes.  I'm actually surprised at my monthly distance because it never seems to be much at the time but it sure does add up.  This month I'm going to attempt a couple of runs :)

I finished 4 books this month and I've got 5 books to go to make my Goodreads reading challenge.  My favourite book was Beartown by Fredrik Backman.

I've got one look to share this month.  I was quite pleased with myself because I had actually made a bit of an effort and wore jewellery and heels!  And the sun was shining so I got to break out the short sleeves.

    New potatoes are so delicious! We always used to get them in Germany, I don't even know if you can't get them here in the States.

    Love your look - this is something I totally would wear!

  2. I've come across Beartown a couple times now. I might have to check it out soon. Did you like it?

  3. Mmm potatoes! Love your look! I never wear heels or jewelry anymore! We had family photos on Sunday and I thought about putting on a necklace but then decided it's not really 'me' to wear jewelry. Maybe some day I will wear it again?? I'm just so lazy these days!
