Monday Check In

Happy Monday my friends! How was your weekend? I hope it was filled with lots of fun and some getting things done. Mine was a nice mix. Here’s the update:

 

Fun

  • Run. My goal was 6-1/2 miles for the weekend…but I ran 8! Hooray.
  • Girls Night In and Wine Night. Check! Both were lots of fun and relaxing, too. Just right.
  • Knit. Check!
  • Take photos for 30 Days of Gratitude. Not yet. On the list for this week.

 

Done

  • Baby Shower. Check!
  • Pick up bagels for baby shower. Check!
  • Wrap a birthday gift. Kailea wanted to do this. So that was an easy check! :)
  • Plan weekly meals and shop. Check!
  • Laundry. A check for progress.
  • Make progress on 28 day challenge. Check! This was the big one. After the baby shower (and before wine night) on Saturday I washed the windows inside and out. I love it when that is done.

 

It was a nice weekend. I hope your was, too. Let me know all about it in the comments.

I did pretty good this weekend even though I spent most of Sunday in bed. But boy was it an exhausting Saturday!

Done:
-Grocery shopping. A lot this week but I got a lot of other errands done on the same go. Good since I really don't like shops.
-Baking. A lot to do for DS birthday on Tuesday. Got four different batches of cookies and some muffins done so I'm set. Think I will order the cake from the bakery though.
-Gift wrapping. For christmas this time. Got all of the gifts that are bought done!
-Christmas planning. At least get a bit on the way with this. I got far! My lists are done and my weekly plan so so far so good :)
Fun:
- Taizé Mass in church on Sunday and singing practice before that. That didn't happen since I was ill. Really a pity since I had looked forward to it.
- Knitting. I haven't had time to finish my hat this week as I thought so I want to get it done. It is done! And I started a new project today, a scarf this time :)
- Watching Downton Abbey. Saw the last episode on Saturday night and can't wait until the new series!
-Read. As always, it is my addiction. Spent a lot of time Sunday reading in bed when I didn't sleep.
