Something New, & I Bought All The Things

The weekend was pretty quiet for us, though we did have our friend Tim over on Friday night for a few hours and of course Sashi fell in love with him again. He’s pretty tall, so she’s a bit intimidated while he’s standing, but get him sitting down and this happens.

Luckily he likes her and plays with her and spoils her rotten or I would forever be apologizing about our incredibly rude dog randomly climbing into his lap. Its not like she’s a little lap dog- she’s 85 pounds of big!

Friday night I also started working on a second triangle scarf, this one in some gorgeous but otherwise awful to work with boucle yarn. I finished it Sunday afternoon and I have to say it turned out beautifully. I’m really, really happy with how it turned out.

Everything about it is just gorgeous! The colors turned out beautiful, the fringe looks good, its pretty much prefect. I’m torn between trying to sell it and keeping it, but I don’t think I should keep it unless I can wear it often. Ugh! So many tough decisions! 😉 I think it will go as a nice cover-up to keep me a bit warmed for Halloween though when that rolls around and it is mostly greenish so it will kind of go with my costume.

I got my costume on Saturday in the mail and surprise! It didn’t fit. Well, it fit, but I couldn’t pull it on over my boobs. I had to rip out the back seam down past the waistline, insert two small panels of black stretch lace, and add a zipper. The gauntlets it came with are definitely not plus sized as they are supposed to be worn above the elbow and I can’t even wear them right below the elbow without losing circulation to my arms. I’ll have to find a fix for them as well.

This morning I woke up early so I was at the grocery store by 9am to beat the crowds. I feel like I bought out half of the store, and I spent a lot of money for me. I bought good, healthy things like fresh fruit, veggies, eggs, and lean meats but I also bought things like bread, pasta, processed meats, and some frozen convenience foods. I guess it kind of balances out so overall it was an okay shopping trip.

I’m really wanting to go back to the gym but of course there’s no money to do so right now, and I’m not even sure where I would like to go. I’m thinking about hopping gym to gym and trying out free passes to see what I like and what is actually affordable. My last gym is okay in winter time but they refuse to turn on the air in summer and its miserable in there then. It makes it hard to get a good workout if you’re worried about dying from heat stroke.
