On My Mind
Hello! Today is THE day where cool breezes prevail. Finally a break in the weather, I'm wearing jeans, the back door is opened and I'm loving every single second. Knowing that summer is winding down and seeing some leaves fall to the ground gives me hope.
This post is a mish mash of what's on my mind.
My reentry into work was fantastic. She was inquisitive, funny and delightful to spend the day with. She kept asking me 'what's your name?'. I was off ten weeks and I saw her once during those ten weeks, how can you forget my name?? We talked a lot, well maybe I rambled and she chimed in. I went on and on about the fall and how great it is, I asked her what she liked best about fall and she said 'wearing boots'. Gah, it was a fun discussion.
There's a new cat (kitten) at work who was friendly and affectionate, he was dumped on their property (humans are evil). Thinking back about when I rescued Holly from death on the side of the road, I believe she survived some sad tragic events because she is a scaredy cat through and through. However, she now 'tolerates' my abundant kisses instead of trying to escape. She has made great strides in her bravery to accept love.

I bought a new area rug for the foyer! Lowes had a 50% off sale of area rugs and we stumbled across this one. I love it. Someone asked me what I bought at Ikea a few weeks ago, so here's the list: a new duvet cover for our daughter's old room and a new duvet cover for my bed as well. We bought two new floor lamps for the family room, two throw pillows for our sofa, a table runner and a new shower rod.
I could have bought more if given the chance, I love Ikea.
Our son is here for the weekend because of a one month recheck for his Lasik procedure. I'm happy to have a full house and we have some fun plans in the works depending on the weather.
I finished the baby sweater last night and need to find some buttons before I soak and block it. What a fast knit!
I bought new gym shoes after weeks of having problems with my right ankle swelling or hurting. I'm amazed at the difference with the ankle stability from the new shoes and wish I would have gone shoe shopping sooner. I wear the shoes most of the day and the swelling is minimal at best. I must have sprained my ankle on the sand at the beach but didn't realize it. I know I was complaining a lot walking on the loose sand.
The last thing on my mind is tracking my added sugar within a day. What a sobering sad state of affairs. The sugar I put in my coffee alone is 14 grams. Sigh. The daily allowance is 25 grams of added sugar. I should have never investigated.
Okay, that it for what's on my mind, I now need to dig up some buttons. Have a great weekend!
