Dang, where did September go? This week has been crazy busy, that is for sure! I did the orientation for my literacy tutoring yesterday and it has been a mad scramble to get in work – although I caught up nicely. Enough to be able to watch Project Runway last night! (Josh M go home already!)
I made up some yummy oats for breakfast today. This was banana custard oats topped with maple cream and toasted pecans!
I managed to flip most of this bowl into my lap while at the computer (because I admit, that is where I usually eat breakfast) I saved most of it, but that was annoying because I had to go change.
After breakfast I took a walk and then spent at least an hour on the phone with the photo shoot coming up on Monday. That is causing me some stress, and I am stress eating a bit. It will be fun, but I also feel fairly self conscious about it. At least it is being done in my home and I can feel relaxed there.
It kind of looks like dinner, doesn’t it? Dinner out tonight, so I wanted to make sure I got in my broccoli!
Are you ready for a complete cuteness overload?
Ms. Pixie sleeping on me today. I really wish I could market her cuteness.
Anyway, here were my goals for September and how I did:
1. Do 1 new recipe and post it each week. I did 3 meals. Pork with Peppers and rice, GF Banana Bread, Country Captain Chicken. I just got too busy to do the 4th one. I actually did do a GF sandwich bread, but I never took pictures or did a post on it.
2. Keep going with Couch to 5K. I did into week 8. It was just feeling wrong. I was hating it and how it was hurting me. It really bothered me that I used to run and now it doesn’t work for me. I realized, though, that I don’t need to run. I just don’t need to do it when there are a lot of other things that don’t hurt me. It doesn’t make me any less of an athlete.
3. Volunteer for something or join a book club/something like that. I went to the orientation to start literacy tutoring. The rest of the track will happen in November, so good to go.
5. Do Pilates 2 times a week. Sqeeeeaaaakkkk! Did you hear that? I just barely eked in 2 times a week with it. LOL.
Not a bad month. I now have to think of some things for October.
Are you ready for a latte? I was!
Please ignore the bowl of chocolate chips and pretzels. I am not sure what that is doing there… really… 😳
Dinner time we might my parents to take my mother out for her birthday. Happy birthday Mom!!
We went to the Anvil.
My pictures were horrible in here as it was very dark inside, although quite a neat place. It is a building from the 1840s.
No garden pictures today as my busy butt just didn’t get out there to take any pictures this week! My mums will be in full bloom next week, so you can all look forward to that, as will I.
I will return with a recap Sunday night of our champagne breakfast cruise (rain and all, most likely) to celebrate our anniversary.
Question: How was your September?
