Whoa. Hey. Did you know?! It’s OCTOBER! I know you guys probably think I am super surprised every single time it becomes a new month. And I always say “WOW..IT’s ____ Already!” < The truth is, time is just flying by so fast, I always am truly surprised! Plus…I Love October. So – I’m extra happy about it! Happy October, Everyone!
And…Happy VlogTober! 🙂 < There’s still plenty of month left. Join us!
The other morning while walking to work I walked by this post, which I always walk by…but on this day I saw this: Do you see that adorable little plant growing out of the top of the concrete post? It made me smile 🙂 With everything that we’ve been through in the past few years there are still days where I feel like my head is spinning, and sometimes I still wonder what the decisions we’ve made will hold for us in the near future. …Then I see things like this – where – despite all of the odds being against it, this plant just keeps growing, and I know everything will be okay. #Infertility.
Erm. Moving on.
THE CHRISTMAS PRESENTS ARE KNITTED. Guuuuyzzz. I didn’t think I could make myself do it. Three solid weeks of knitting feverishly, and it’s done. Getting to return to sock knitting was the perfect motivator. I wanted to knit Christmas presents day and night. 🙂 It feels so good that they’re done!!! There are still a few little things I need to make, but all of the time consuming items are complete! And so … it is BACK TO SOCKS! ^ Yes.
Also. Speaking of addictions that aren’t knitting. Dear Coconut Bacon: I love you so so so much. This latest batch I’ve made is so amazing. Crunchy. Salty. Slightly Sweet. Oh. And garlicly. < Best Choice Ever. I’m working on a recipe with my modifications, but … until then … this recipe is great too 🙂
Did I tell you last week that I had a headache for 7 days? Probably not, since I hadn’t had it for 7 days yet… Yeah. It was kind of awful. It finally broke Saturday afternoon and I went out on a run. I was mega-surprised to see this number for my first mile: Not my record by any means, but I thought it was pretty awesome that I could get to ^ That without pushing myself as hard as possible.
This week Walking To Work has actually returned in true form. There have even been a few Run-To-Work days… Because I need to start remembering to actually check the temperatures before I leave and I was a tad bit cold 🙂 Running fixed that, though!
Okkkkay. I hope you guys are having a great week! I’ll see you next week!
