I worked on Autumn Angel this past week.  I got quite alot done as I had to move my scroll rods.  I think my stitching slump is over!

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.

Not many orts this time as I have been in a stitching slump.  But I think I am coming out of it.

I think my stitching slump is over.  Here is progress on Day.  It feels good to be back stitching.  I am still slowly cleaning out the clutter of my house.  I am still trying to walk 3 miles a day.  Now that it is rainy and colder I will try to walk on the treadmill at work.  I have lost 5lbs so far and do not want to lose that progress.

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.

 Well again not much stitching was done this week.  I just can't seem to get motivated.  This week I should be working on my new start HAED but I am just not feeling it.

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.

 Not much stitching was done this past week.  Still in a slump. But I have been busy.
 I finally called to get my dryer vent cleaned.  I have not had a working dryer in 6 years.  That meant I had to clean out my laundry room.  I threw a bunch of stuff away.
Organized the rest.  Scrubbed the floors and walls.  Saturday I did laundry in my new/clean room for the first time - start to finish.  I usually just washed my clothes at home, hung them out to dry in the summer and then hit the laundramat in the evening to dry what was left.  Since I am on a cleaning roll, I have also begun to clean my kitchen.  I filled my garbage can again yesterday so no more throwing out until after Wednesday - garbage day.

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.
