Five on Friday

Another week has come and gone.  I cannot believe that it is already the middle of October. Here are 5 random things from this week.

1) I am trying to have a better attitude at work. I may not like my new boss but I cannot let that get me down.

2) I am really enjoying the new show How to Get Away with Murder. I have only watched the first 2 episodes but it is good so far.

3) I have already come up with my theme for 2015 - Just Do It Already. I am going to start this philosophy now. There are so many things that I am holding back from doing so I need to just let go and do them.

4) I am actually contemplating Christmas gifts already. I may even buy some of Clark's gifts before December. I do not recognize myself.

5) I love my hubby but he did something to my car and now my dashboard does not light up. Coming home from knit night Wednesday was an adventure.

Here are some photos from the week












Playing Chutes and Ladders












This thing woke me up from the other bedroom at 5:30am Saturday morning. The boys - who were sleeping right under it - did not stir.












He still loves his Little Tykes car even though he is way to big for it.

September Fitness Check In

Again it is almost the middle of the month before I am posting this. Of course there is not much to tell so this will be quick.

Fitness: I only worked out for 335 minutes of the 690 I wanted to do.

Weight: I managed to somehow lose 4 pounds in the month. I lost inches on my neck, arm and bust while everything else remained the same.

Food: she is still my biggest temptress.

Five on Friday

Here is what is going on this week.

1) I am finally getting over my cold. Of course now my DH is coming down with it. I am hoping it will skip little man.

2) I have been dealing with some major pain on the left side of my body. It maybe time to break down and go to the doctor.

3) Clark wants to be an astronaut for Halloween. I found some DIY instructions online but I think I am going to take the lazy mommy way out and buy one. It will cost about the same and this way I don't have to stress over it.

4) It has been very cold in the mornings. I may have to break down and turn on the heat soon.

5) I still feel a bit like I am running around and not accomplishing anything. I need to focus but I am finding it difficult.

Here are some pictures from the week












And he is out like a light

I hate this traffic circle












They're not hand knit but I love my purple fuzzy socks












Yeah hockey's back! Go Wings!














It always seems so magical to see the moon during the day.

Until next time ....

Books Read: September 2014

Well my knitting mojo has returned which makes me happy. However, it seems that I have now lost my reading mojo. In September I only finished 2 books:

1) Lavender Morning: Edilean #1 by Jude Deveraux: when Jocelyn Minton's mentor, Ms Edi, passes away and leaves her the family estate in the small town of Edilean her life is turned upside down.

2) The Last Hope: Book #3 of the Inn Boonsboro Trilogy by Nora Roberts: in the final book we follow the relationship between inn keeper Hope and the last Montgomery brother, Ryder. We also solve the mystery of the ghost of the inn.

Five on Friday

I am not sure how it ended up being October already. Time can seriously slow down a bit. Here is what has been happening this week.

1) I have been sick all week. The change in weather always wreaks havoc on my sinuses and I have been fighting a headache and sore throat.

2) I have been working on a shawl design that has been in my head for awhile. I finally decided to bite the bullet and do it.

3) I made it out to knit night again this week after a month or so. It was nice to see the ladies and have some down time.

4) Clark seems to have finally turned the corner and is enjoying school. He told me on Sunday that he was excited for school and on Tuesday morning he told me he could not wait to see his teacher. He is also getting on the bus without a fuss.

5) With the return of my knitting mojo my reading had declined. I am now 3 books behind schedule on my 52 in 52 challenge.

Here are some pictures from the week.

Five on Friday

Another week has come and gone. I can not believe it is almost October. Here we go with another Five on Friday post.

1) Last Sunday morning around 6am a tornado touched down a few miles from our house. Very scary stuff.
2) Fall is here for sure. It is quite cool taking Clark to the bus stop in the morning.
3) Last Sunday I made pumpkin spiced muffins. They were supposed to be for Clark's snack and lunch during the week but I ate quite a few.
4) Football season is also in full swing which makes me very happy.
5) We are finally settling into or new school routine and that makes me very happy.

Until next time ....
