Happy Monday to you! How was your weekend? Here's my update:



  • Run (3-1/2 miles) and roughly map out the rest of the month. Check and check!
  • Knit. Check!
  • Read. Check!



  • Holiday planning + make shopping / gift lists. Check and progress made but not a full check.
  • Laundry. Check!
  • Work on a simplify 101 project. For at least four hours on Saturday and/or Sunday. Check!
  • Menu plan + grocery shop. Check!
  • Clean the house! This was an add-on, but I want credit, so…check! ;)


All in all it was a good weekend. How about you? Thanks to each of you who joined me this week and giving me the extra motivation to have some fun and get things done. :)

Nice work, Aby!

*Shopping trip with mom, daughter and grandson - CHECK!
*Family movie/pizza night - CHECK!
*Take at least one walk outdoors - CHECK!

*Pay bills - a partial "check" (still need to enter some items in my check register that are automatically drafted)
*Plan/prep Bible lesson - CHECK!
*Homeschool grading/planning - CHECK!
*4-H volunteer work - CHECK!
*Holiday planning - we discussed our Thanksgiving plans and decided on one Christmas gift, so I'll say CHECK!
*Grocery shopping - no, but we re-organized the upright freezer and discovered that I really need to cook from what's on hand, so I don't have very much shopping to do for Thanksgiving.

My "add-on" was a movie/dinner date with my husband on Saturday night. It was good to get out together for a little while and since we had to leave early in the afternoon, it kept me focused with what needed to get done on Saturday morning.

Hope everyone else had a good weekend and for those who celebrate the holiday, Happy Thanksgiving!
