HI..I'm trying to drink more tea (okay I just finished a light beer) but I did have tea for dessert after supper..so far tea every night in November..start of a streak!! So come over and share a cup of tea and a chat with me :)
My theme for November is Hoapitali..Tea :)...
..so glad you could drop by !! Thanks to everyone who stopped in yesterday and left encouragements on my blog!!
Today I've been tracking my food..one of my goals for November..track every day, so I did today, and caught up yesterday's and then I found out next weeks 5% fall challenge is to track food :) woohoo~!!! so the next 7 days will hopefully keep me on track!!
Rode my x bike for 30 minutes..another goal for November..also cleaned some in the house and checked the herd out grazing and chopped water holes in the ice (cold here with freezing rain and snow) and brought the herd some minerals. Lifting the 55 pound bag and carrying it was my weight work out :) I carried it through the barn and put it in the ton truck, then lifted it out of the back of the truck and carried it to the mineral feeder..then opened it and poured it out.. I did use some muscles for that and for usingf the huge ax to chop water holes..
Then we went to town for mail and fuel for the gov't truck and I bought a $2 magazine. I did my OAMS (once a month shopping) on Wednesday in Weyburn. This is the 3rd month of my new grocery plan...I think I'm getting good at this. October I got a free turkey with the coupon. This week I got a $25 store gift card for spending $250..I actually didn't have $250 at the till..had to go back for another bag of cat food!! I even bought some of my Christmas baking ingredients. Coffee was on sale so I bought 4 big packages!! This has helped me plan my meals in advance and make sure I'm not buying extras I don't need... I used to shop too often and then buy too many treats, etc!! I found most of the information on Pinterest..like freeze milk..I learned one 4 liter jug is only $1 more than a 2 liter carton..and in our little town it's $3 or $4 more for 4 l.!!! Yikes..why did I ever just pick it up randomly when I was low!!
While at Weyburn I broke down and bought a new cell phone..I just had a Walmart one and not 4G..we have a new 4G tower near us and the new phone works everywhere!! wow..so great from what we are used to!! Now my 11 yr old granddaughter can text me when ever :)..was just setting it up and telling the kids my number and in about 1 hour I have sent 18 texts!! And I told the sales clerk I don't text like a teenager..haha!! Great way to keep in touch with busy kids :)
Well..it's getting late so I should head to bed...thanks for dropping by, keep on Sparkin'
I printed out the page 30 days/30 ways to stay on track...
I'm using it for Nov...I forgot to add yesterday
1. Move more
I can use all the help I can get to stay on track!!
Autumn dreams its hours in gold
Its skies in lavender.
Hi...we just got home from Assiniboia where we sold some of our calves today. We had taken them to market on Sunday..and we had snow and blowing snow but today was a beautiful day..Indian Summer :) hope it lasts for awhile!!
We are very happy with the prices and the weights, too.So that's more of the fall jobs done.
I've been spending the last few weeks chasing after cattle so yesterday I tried to catch up with housework and chase some dust bunnies instead!!
The 5% fall challenge is going fine..well I'm keeping up with the program and tracking the exercise minutes (cattle has made me get the max minutes) and I have been keeping up with the other parts of the challenge..this week is freggies, so I'm getting in my fruits and veggies..usually do so that's easy! The only problem is I haven't los much weight yet!! Gotta get cracking for November!! I don't want to let my team down!!
Tomorrow I'm going to a funeral and then on to Weyburn and do some banking and also it's time to do my once a month grocery shopping...so I've been doing my planning for November. It's almost time to do my October recap and blog my November goals...so been working on that too!
Well..better run..thanks for dropping by..keep on Sparkin'
Today I won 50 free goodie points on the bonus spin so I'm off to give out some pumpkins....
Hi..we woke up to snow this morning...at least it's moisture!! I still have lots of outside jobs but the snow will be a break for me :)
We've had a really busy and hectic couple of weeks..we had all the community pasture take outs last week..and so far this week we have hauled our cattle home from a far away pasture and helped a neighbor sort and load his calves for market :)
I've been too tired to blog...have been just logging on and doing the 5% challenge.
Where has October gone?
Will be back blogging regularly soon..I hope :)
Thanks for dropping by..keep on sparkin'
Love Donna :)
