I hopped on the treadmill and ran for a mile, but I just wasn’t feeling it. Not that it felt bad or anything, but I felt extremely bored and still a little tired, so I just biked home.

I had soaked some steel cut oats overnight so they were ready to cook up with a mashed nanner today.  We are out of nut butter (horrors!!!),  and let’s just say I had a date with Nutella and crackers last night during my Project Runway marathon, so nuts and jam it was!

Got my half day of work done.  Thank you.  Now it is what passes for my weekend.

Lunch time was a piece of fresh bread that John made with some of last night’s chicken.

It was still warm so I didn’t even toast it.  Gotta love life sometimes!

The garden is still going.  Some stuff is starting to brown up of the year as the roots hunker down, but still some gas left.  The mums are blooming.

Okay, I bought these mums.  Mine still look like this –

I forget what color these are, so that will be a surprise.  I think they are orange.

Sedum keeps getting darker and darker.

Can you believe this is only 3 sedum plants?  Must divide.

I cannot remember the name of this one for the life of me.  It begins with ‘g’, I think and I have posted before.  I have some good CRS going on right now.

The big asters are blooming now.  I am actually going to move these to the side of those house. 

Another snapdragon.

Few new blooms on the black-eyed Susans.

I received some samples in the mail today which I will be reviewing and hopefully doing a giveaway on.  Here’s a hint:

I had to sample a few 😳  Ah-mazing and they went awesome with a latte.

I also got a couple books at the library today that I will be reviewing once I finish.  Quite interesting.

We are eating a bit early and heading on out to the Irish Fest tonight!  Had a quick bowl of yogurt:

Plus an unpictured piece of toast.  Seems Nibbler has not quite been corralled yet.

We will see how well I will avoid the overpriced snacks at the Fest 😀

    Lori,

    I think that plant is called ‘ganzia’. or something very close to that. I didn’t think they were cold hardy. Are they????deb

    I was given a bunch of different perrenials this spring and planted them and have no idea what they’re called. But I see that one of them is an aster like the one you have- so pretty! Have a great weekend!

    I really want to try the overnight oats! Maybe sometime this week:) I read your story and it was so inspiring! People who work for their goals and don’t get up make me want to be better! Thanks for sharing!

    Do you have a twitter?

    I can handle 1 or max 2 runs on the treadmill in a week but no more, then I want to go outside again.

    You still have a lot blooming in your garden. Mine doesn’t have that much anymore that’s blooming.
