Happy November! October was kind of a crazy month, but then you always start a month and never know what will happen.
We are back into some relatively warmer weather around here, so we are still able to get the bikes out for riding!
I have the fleece tights to wear under my bike knickers and they keep my legs nice and warm:
There will be temps in the 60s this week – can you believe that? So, November riding will be happening. Yippee!!
We had a fairly quiet Halloween. We had maybe 15 or 20 kids tops. Mostly young ones, too. You would think we would have a lot as we are only a couple blocks from a school, but you just never know. We had more than last year, though.
Progress on the utility sink area is moving along. John has done so much work with the framing and the drywall while I have been busy with other stuff. This is where the tub used to be inside the small bathroom, which is now on the outside 😀
Now it’s my turn doing the taping and mudding, then painting the walls. We can start installing the flooring while the mud dries (it will take several days to do all the coats). The sink is here, so I am hoping by next weekend this part of the project will be done. Then to start on the bathroom portion, although there is no hurry on that.
Sunday I went to the Larac art show. They moved the venue to downtown, so I could walk there, which was nice. I bought some Christmas gifts and then some pictures for myself. I was chatting with the photographer about cameras and such and I bought the 2 smaller bird pictures below. His pictures are amazing.
After I paid, he asked me if there were any other pictures I liked and I pointed out the squirrel one. Well – he gave me the picture! I didn’t want to take it, but he insisted. That was so nice. Maybe he was flirting with me? I don’t know.
Anyway, I had made some goals for October. I was a bit middling with getting them done.
- No scale. No problem there, although I gained 2 pounds in the month of October. I don’t know what that means as we had company for the first week of October and with eating out, I could have easily gained more and lost some of that. Again, I don’t have a reason for not weighing.
- Pink pictures. Done. I did pink links on most of my pictures this month. Thank you all for clicking through to fund mammograms.
- Work on the headboard. Close to finishing, but still stuck where I was with needing to do the glaze. I ended up having a lot to do this month with starting the soap biz and working on the bathroom.
- Strength training. Complete fail on this one. Not sure why, but I just didn’t get to it. I did a lot of excercising, though with walking (new treadmill), biking and renovations.
So, a couple unfinished goals there. I will get that headboard finished this month, though LOL!
