Another fall weekend in the books. It turned out to be really good weather, although a little brisk and windy for riding… boo. I will not admit the season is over until December gets here, though, so the bikes are not brought in onto the trainers yet. 😀
There was just a lot of things done over the weekend. We got some Christmas shopping done at a craft show, did a bunch of other browsing and lots of home stuff. Plus my weekend lifting workout:
Not that I was lifting those dumbbells…
This workout was chest, back and abs.
|Dumbbell incline chest press||3 sets of 10|
|Side bends||3 sets of 10|
|Dumbbell flat chest press||3 sets of 10|
|Single-arm dumbbell row||3 sets of 10|
|Incline dumbbell chest fly||3 sets of 10|
|Seated lat row||3 sets of 10|
|Dumbbell flat chest fly||3 sets of 10|
|Reverse crunches||3 sets of 10|
Company for bagels on Sunday!
One thing I love about our new home is being able to walk downtown. It’s a mile walk to get there, so we can walk through most of the winter, as well. As long is it is about about 25 degrees that is 😀
When we walk back home, it still seems so weird that we own this house.
It doesn’t quite feel like home all the way yet. That is one reason why we are working hard at getting the inside going. Once we put our stamp on stuff, it will seem more like all of it is ours.
I got a bunch of paint sample pots to try out for the living room. Thank goodness for the sample pots!
We kind of narrowed it down to the 2 colors on the right. While I like the boldness of the dark colors, I think it is too much, especially when you view the dining through the living room. Plus, here is some of our art work and decor that will be going in this room:
We kind of have a purple theme going. That photo on the floor is one I took in New Orleans earlier this year and I got an enlargement of it.
And honestly, I cannot move anything around without Pixie running over to see what I am doing.
Here is the picture that will be going over the couch:
I think the gray will help the colors come out, but we are going to paint bigger swatches after I get the wall prepped and see. I could also get some beige/tan samples, but I don’t think we want to go that route. Paint colors can be really hard!
I also scored a table for the nook! I love to thrift shop, but so many times you leave empty handed. You just never know when you might find something. Well, I found this table!
It’s nice because we can open it for eating and drop the leaves after breakfast. The best part? This table was only $15!!! I loves me a bargain! Now I really need to find a couple of smaller chairs for this room. That’s the next project -sourcing 2 smaller chairs for this r oom. I just need to be patient and keep my eyes open.
