Today: Wednesday is My Sunday.

 

Today is my Sunday! Tomorrow begins my nice, short little work week!  Today I got to spend the morning having breakfast with my wonderful boyfriend – being silly, and just enjoying each other’s company – it’s the best.  Great start to a beautiful, rainy, and downright chilly, fall “Sunday” for yours truly.

I also embarked up on a new adventure this afternoon: Becoming a Domestic goddess!!!!… Okay, maybe not a domestic goddess; but baby steps, right?!

Today  was the day I learned how to knit a scarf!  If you don’t know me – I’m not exactly the most “crafty” woman in my family. My sister and grandmother are brilliant at it all.   So, this is pretty awesome. And I’m excited!!!!  Now the question remains: Fringe, or no fringe…..? Hmmm… We shall see… (see left: the beginnings of my new project!)

Of November – NanoWriMo and more

I can’t believe it’s October 9th (in 10 days Paranormal Activity 4 appears in theatres .. And yes, I will be seeing it. I have seen all the other 3, and can’t stand not knowing what happens in the 4th movie!)… I love autumn, and Winter. And October is probably one of my most favorite months out of the year…

October October October

Needless to say: Halloween will be pretty fantastic! I can’t wait for the haunted houses, trick-or-treat(ers); hot chocolate; and for the weather to FINALLY get cold enough for me to wear leggings and boots, and pretty scarves and coats! 🙂

I expect November being interesting  – I have just signed up for NanoWriMo… And I intend to complete it this year! And best yet – I actually have a few ideas percolating, so I might actually have something to write about this year! 🙂 And November is also diabetes awareness month.

Speaking of the big bad Diabetes Monster: The last few days have been pretty good! This morning my blood sugar was pretty much in the ‘target zone’ for what I think is called the ‘resting’ period…! Needless to say I have felt so much better lately as its stained in the 100’s and pretty consistent – (more energy, happier, more talkative, etc.). haha It’s been awesome!

Trying to manage this disease is a major adjustment, and I’m trying to learn more and more about my type 1, so that when people offer ‘helpful’ suggestions; I can try to help maybe educate them instead of rolling my eyes, which doesn’t always translate very well… Sometimes it’s hard to be polite… O:)  BUT… I’m sticking with the whole God doesn’t give us more than we can take… He’s just helping me bend, and stretch…….A lot. I am so thankful for the support system I have – they’re all amazing. Enough said. 😉
