Hey Fall!

I haven't fallen off the face of the earth...I have just been busy and in a blog funk! I never know what to write about without thinking I am boring you people? But I am back at it and thanks for still following me!

First up....Random Facts Wednesdays are back:

1. I used to dress up like a clown and do kids birthday parties in the late 80s.
2. I used to teach a girls self improvement program at the Boys and Girl Club.
3. I used to be a Brownie Owl.
4. I collect Bratz dolls.
5. I wish I were more organized!

I received these goodies from Catyesterday for a Fall Swap I joined!! How cool is that....I am trying to think what to knit/crochet with the beautiful wool (not like I have 100 projects on the go already). Thanks Cat....I love everything!!
I am also involved in Janel's I ♥ Fall Class. I am a couple of pages behind but am hoping to get caught up tonight! I am really beginning to get addicted to art journals!!

I have a craft sale coming up on November 20 so I have been busy making stuff for that as well.
143 more days until our trip to Florida! I have been walking with my friend 5 km twice a week and trying to eat better, so far, the scale hasn't moved!!! I am getting a little discouraged. I guess I will keep plugging away and hopefully the scale will be my friend soon!!??
Hope everyone is having a great week!
Until next time xxooDebbie

Summer Reading!

Well I am back from holidays and the boys are back in school...I absolutely hate having to set an alarm clock!! I have always felt like September was like "new year's" fresh starts and all. We are heading to Florida in 161 days and I definitely need to get some weight off along with improving my strength etc. I have a friend who has recently moved back to my area who has lost 125 pounds and she has agreed to be my walking partner!! Well today is the first day of my walking regimen...we did almost 5000 steps this morning!! I am hoping having a partner in crime might motivate me to keep moving!!

Well I would have to say I spent most of my summer reading...I have never been a school when we used to have to do book reports, I would read the back cover and make my report from that, or I would pick a book someone else had read and ask them about the book and do my report...LOL! I hated all of a sudden in the past 2 years or so, I read all the time?

Books I have read this summer:

1. Wildwater Walking Club - Claire Cook
2. Knit in comfort - Isabel Sharpe
3. A summer affair - Elin Hinderbrand
4. The castaways - Elin Hilderbrand
5. The Blue Bistro - Elin Hilderbrand
6. Barefoot - Elin Hilderbrand
7. The Island - Elin Hilderbrand

As you can see I have found a new favourite author....worth checking out these books!
I hope everyone has a great weekend!!!!
Until next time xxooDebbie
