**Don’t forget – the Sahale Crunchers give away ends Monday!**
We had a good weekend, although the weather was not all that cooperative. It was in the 20s Saturday morning. Most of my garden got toasted from that since it was a killing freeze and not just frost.
I wanted to get my 25 minute run out of the way, so after breakfast when it warmed up into the 30s (!!!), we headed down to the track. I think I have figured out that it is going faster that is what is so hard on my weak thigh muscle, so my version of running is now officially titled Lori 2.slow
I did about 2 miles in 25 minutes and did pretty well. This doesn’t make me really breathe all that hard because my cardio fitness is good, but that is the speed my leg is okay with. I need to learn to be okay with that. I think I am okay with that for now, but you know how the brain can fool you sometimes
It got warm enough to about 50 degrees, so we went on an afternoon bike ride, too! Still have to be pretty bundled up for that, but the sun was out and I was happy to ride. The fall blooming plants are still around.
I still like kale better as garnish than eating it.
I also saw the computer roll over 2000 miles for the season:
I was beginning to wonder if I was going to hit that with all the icky weather the last month or so. You would think I would be stick thin with all those miles, but it just shows you that tons of cardio doesn’t always = weight loss
Sunday was trying to finish up the floors. We are so close. The living room is all finished and put back together. I am soooooooooooo happy! So happy!
We decided to rearrange the room a bit as well. It may not stay like this, but we like it for now. The register covers are not in place yet because they are getting painted, but it is nice to have a room back to normal. It is also nice because we decluttered the room as well. Bonus.
We are just putting up shoe molding in the office and replacing the last couple baseboards in the dining room and we then we can put the rest of the furniture back in place. Hooray! This is the dining room and office right now:
Still in a bit of disarray, but probably just another couple hours to finish up and put the furniture back. Then we will be ready to show off our floors for the big holiday dinner this year!

You had to know that a bargain girl like me would use Suave, right?
