Update - no pictures

Well I have been knitting fingerless mitts/arm warmers this last week.  I am doing it because unfortunately I have gain back about 30 pounds of the 50 pounds I lost and I refuse to buy new clothes for the winter. I know it is quite stupid but I refuse to budge on this point. 

I have been having a lot of fun with the knitting even though I lost (lost as in misplaced) my size 6 double point needles that I think to knit ragtop mittens.  Of course, it was only after I bought replacement needles, this time 40 inch circular needles that the hubby stumbled on them on the coffee table in the family room. Well, not a big deal, even he said so as he knows the love I have with doing everything on the magic loop.  I love it that he really gets me as a knitter. That statement reminds me that he really wants a new pair of socks for Christmas. Best be doing that soon.

On the health front, other that my weight going up, I realized this morning why I exercise the real truth not because I want to lose weight but to keep out of pain as my lower back and hips have flared up and I really don't want to go to the chiropractor.  I am sometimes so like my mom it isn't even funny.  So back on the walking circuit either tonight or in the morning.  Also I have a loose front tooth and the new dentist and I are waiting to see if the splint that he attached will help.  If it doesn't it means that either the tooth is too far gone or it is broken which means going to a specialist for an implant as it is one of my fragile top teeth.  So praying quite hard that the splint works!!!!

Today is very cold with some of my neighbors/friends/family getting a dusting of snow. I am really hoping for a very, very snowy winter.  All the more reason to get more exercise in so that I can use my new snowshoes!

Weekend part 2

Today has been fun with good food and fun. We slept in this morning! I was up before hubby so I had coffee and yogurt to start the day. We headed out for a late lunch, we grabbed A & E and took them with us. Afterwards we watched the avengers as we didn't get to it last night.

So this evening, hubby and I headed out to run errands and grab a treat. Since we had Mexican for lunch, we had frozen yogurt for dinner.

15th anniversary weekend part one

Well it is Friday night and hubby and I are going to make a run at our 15th anniversary again. Our official wedding anniversary is September 13th but our first wedding date was October 4th. So since our wedding se have messed up the official anniversary either by forgetting it or making bad choices. So we have had better luck with the 4th of October. This year was the same, so for the first part we are having dinner at Stella's and then heading home to watch the avengers. It is a better start, we are at a restaurant that serves wine and has real silverware and plates.

Random thoughts

I meant to start blogging each day but I had such a crazy start to the month at work that it didn't happen so I thought I would begin it today. 
I have just realized that i meant to brew more coffee when I got to work but totally forgot about it until now.

I have been dealing with allergies all year and have decided that I am going to stop letting them control my life, I will start getting up in the morning and working out either by going to the gym or taking a walk. 

I set a goal to run a mile by the end of October and I haven't started working on that yet.  No better time than now.

I did get up earlier today that I have in a while even though I haven't been sleeping well.

I started my book for book club this morning.  I am hoping to get to page 100 by tonight.  It is "The Passage" by Justin Cronin.  Everyone so far has enjoyed it.  I do like the author's writing style so hopefully that will keep me interested. 

The weather finally changed and we are out of the 80's for now.  Maybe I will take a walk with the hubby tonight before it gets dark.
