It was one of those mish mash weekends. Those always go by fast, don’t they? John had his football meal. He has won several weeks in a row because my picks stink this year. I lost my mojo. Broncos!!! What is wrong with youuuuuu??
He chose the Silo. This is an old place made out of 2 barns that were transported to this spot and formed into a restaurant and a large shopping area.
Breakfast all day!
Of course, we window shopped afterwards. I really wanted this old trunk, but it was a display item and not for sale:
They also had cider donuts freshly made, which smelled amazing, but we didn’t get any.
Lots of work done on the Manor this weekend. Still concentrating in the living room. There is little room off the living room which we call the North room for lack of a better term. These apparently used to be French doors, but are now cheapie hollow core doors, which don’t even fit properly, and one was nailed shut.
We aren’t totally sure how well this room holds heat, so we may have to put the doors back up if it gets too cold in there or the heating bills go crazy. It is directly over the furnace room, though, which puts out a lot of heat. We shall see. I will say I am looking forward to have our art work on the walls and not strewn about the room.
I am a little over 2/3 done with wallpaper removal. If I put my mind to it, I can have it done this week and then repair the wall and hopefully paint Thanksgiving weekend. We usually put our tree up that weekend, so it would be nice to have it ready to go.
Still swatching paint:
I am actually leaning more and more towards the gray. I keep trying to talk myself out of that color, but then I like it the best. It actually looks good up against the couch. The purplish gray I tried looked nice during the day, but it was really muddy looking at night.
Last but not least was the lifting. Workout this weekend was chest,back and abs with supersets.
Lying Dumbbell Pull Over/Pushups
|3 sets of 15/3 sets of 10|
Dumbbell Chest Press/Seated Lat Row
|3 sets of 15|
Incline Dumbbell Chest Fly/Bent Over Row
|3 sets of 15|
|Crunches/Reverse Crunches||3 sets of 15|
John accompanied me to the gym with a guest pass, too. 😀 I worked out mostly in the area nicknamed the Iron Den – and they made a sign for it.
It’s funny how there are 3 sections to the gym and almost never the twain shall meet – or however that saying goes. There is the Iron Den, the middle cardio and weight machine room and the open gym, which is where they hold crossfit workouts, but anyone can use that section when there are no classes. It’s funny how certain ‘types’ of people only stay in certain sections. I go around to all 3 depending on what I need. It’s amusing to hear some of the different conversations that go on in these areas.
Anyway, winter is slowly marching in. We will be getting some snow tonight and tomorrow and I just am not ready. We still have leaves on the ground!
