Are you enjoying this fall-like weather? I have been in heaven. I even changed the bed comforter to the fall/winter one. The pool will be closing this week and I cannot get enough of the fall foliage that is emerging. Thank goodness for Autumn!
This past week was a little busy. After many months of staying at home we were out for the first time in six months to a neighboring city to look for a dress for me to wear to my son's wedding in January. I tried on five, liked two and picked one. See - simple.
I honestly do not want to go store-to-store scouring the selections which is what I would have done before the pandemic. I also didn't want to order online. All I need are a pair of shoes and that can wait for a few weeks for now.
On Saturday I drastically cut added sugar in my diet. I gave up desserts which was easy after one day but I have been chipping away at the sugar I put in my morning coffee. I have successfully eliminated 50% and am now trying to cut another 25%. I'll let you know how it goes.
I feel really crummy when I have desserts anymore and last Saturday was my epiphany day. Egads! Isn't it weird that I am less hungry now? Convenient! I guess sugar makes you hungrier?
If you look closely at my socks, I accidentally pulled out the wrong needle for the photo and had to squirrel back on 16 stitches, haste makes waste! If I finish these and I will soon, I want to work on my sister's featherweight cardigan and also dig through my deep yarn stash for some blue yarn. My nephew is having a boy!
My son in law's sister is also having a baby but I'm waiting for more details before I cast on a project.
After a two hour wait for him to see the eye doctor, I am happy to tell you his eye is a highly irritated eye. No corneal scratch nor infection. So he is ordered to not wear contacts for two weeks and add moisturizing eye drops. We were relieved it was nothing worse than that.
How was your week?
