I did start a new small one on Sunday to take the place of Freight Train that I finished up. Hope to have it finished by the end of the week depending on stitching time.
My DD will be home Saturday for 3 weeks. Looking forward to doing things with her when she is here.

The weather forecast for this coming week is cold with snow. Ugh. I am already counting down the days until spring and it is not even officially winter yet.
I am still slowly losing weight. I only gained 1lb during Thanksgiving. I still manage to walk outside a few times a week. I am also walking on the treadmill after work in the exercise room.

This week I worked on Butterfly Fairy - Day. I got alot done. My DD and her BF were home for 4 days. I cooked alot of large meals as he is a big eater. We had beef and noodles with mashed potatos (I have been told this is the German way); Thanksgiving meal at my brother and sister-in-laws (very good and I spent the whole day there with my side of the family); chili and Saturday we cooked out on the grill -hamburgers. I also baked brownies, chocolate chip cookies and chocolate cake. This also resulted in alot of dish washing. :) They are back at college now and will return in 3 weeks for Christmas.

I am officially done raking leaves for the year. I have 32 bags waiting for pickup. Even if more fall down, I am done.
I am still walking 3 miles a day. I have lost a total of 12lbs this year. I just need to keep it off until warm weather comes around again. So hard to do with all of the Holiday food looming.

Today I will finally be starting my HAED. Watch next week for progress pictures.
I spent 4 hours raking leaves out of my front yard. We had a big wind come thru Wednesday and blew all of the neighbor's leaves into my yard. Then the wind came back last night and it is still very windy today. Yup my front yard is full of leaves again. I have 27 bags of leaves sitting out for pickup. At least I know I am not raking the same leaves over and over again.

Last Sunday my son and I went to the movies to see Johnny English Reborn with Rowan Atkinson. This was my son's pick as he has enjoyed Rowan as Mr. Bean. It was an ok movie. Today I am going with my sister to see the remake of Footloose.
I only read one book in the month of October. I guess I was in a reading slump as well.
I have 7 vacation days scheduled for November (not counting Thanksgiving). Some of those days will be filled with yard work. I do hope to squeeze in a visit to my lns.

Here is a picture of a toad I found while walking last week. I took it with my new blackberry that work provided all of us. I now have to take calls and stay up on my e-mail when I am not in the office. But I can also use it for personal use. Since I did not have a cell phone it is nice to have.

I have been cleaning my house still. I found an old video tape - Pure Country with George Strait. I think I will watch it sometime soon and then move it out of the house.
With the beautiful weather we have been having I have been walking 3 miles a day - one at lunch and two after supper. This has resulted in losing 3lbs. Any weight loss is a good loss.

It is supposed to be nice out today so I will be mowing the lawn and working outside. I am just too restless to sit and stitch.

My computer at home has been broke for 3 weeks now. So I am posting from work. (shhh don't tell).

I have been up watching the 9/11 memorial services on CNN. There are no words to express the emotions this brings back.

I did start a new project on Sunday and hope to finish it by this Saturday. I picked something small as most of my wips are large.

Dropped my daughter off at college on Monday. She has a bigger room this year. Very nice especially compared to the dorm rooms at Cedar Point. Tuesday I took my son back to school shopping for some new clothes. And then it was back to work for the rest of the week. School starts tomorrow so our summer routine ends and the school routine begins.

Picked up my daughter from Cedar Point on Friday. It was a long day of driving. Saturday we did laundry, grocery shopping, and had a cookout so the grandparents could visit with my daughter before she heads back to school. Monday saw me on the road again but a shorter drive to Ball State to drop my daughter off. She has a really nice room this year (especially compared to the tiny 3 person dorm room at Cedar Point).
I am off tomorrow also and will take my son school shopping. He is still having problems eating solid food. Then back to work on Wednesday.

I did buy longer dowl rods to make my own scroll rods. I just need to get some of that velcro to put on the rods and my material. Hopefully I will have everything ready to go the next time this slot in my rotation comes up.
My son has a really bad overbite and Wednesday he got braces on his upper teeth and a Herbst device installed. He has not been able to eat solid food since then. He is such a skinny kid already. But his overbite looks so much better already. I also registered him for school on Friday. He has 2 more weeks of summer before school starts again.
Friday we will be going back to Cedar Point to pick up my daughter. Then 2 days later we take her back to college. I will be spending alot of time in the car. I am going to have a cookout next Saturday night so the grandparents can all visit with her before she returns to school. So this will be another busy week.

I also went to my lns yesterday to get the fabric I need for a new start. I am anticipating finishing my Garden Seed Packets next week. I am going to try and make my own scroll rods as I need larger ones. I am looking to get 36 inch rods. Off to Lowes to look. I feel that I stitch faster on scroll rods.
