I don't know where the time goes generally, but it is hard to try and settle into a new house, especially when it is one that is already occupied and furnished. Seems like there is stuff all over. It is bad enough to try and sort through my stuff, but when the stuff is someone elses it really makes it hard. I never know what to toss and what to keep. But little by little the bonus room (my room now) is shaping up. I finally figured out how to take the drawers out of the big triple dresser in there, and with them out I was able to move it to a better position in the room, then put all the drawers and stuff back in. Whew! Now I need a chair so I can sit to iron and also watch a movie while I'm doing it. I had the men who delivered the refrigerator move the TV from my car to my room, which was sweet of them, of course the guy was about 6'5 and he picked it up like it was a little bag of sugar. haha

Now I need to start thinking of WHERE I will be putting the Christmas tree when it's time to set it up.

Things are good with me. After too many weeks of challenges, things have calmed down. The weather here in Central Florida is perfect, I am playing pickleball 3-4 times a week (such fun) and I am out on my bike as much as possible (75 minutes this AM). I got the house cleaned yesterday and today and actually did some healthy cooking.

Margo -- Your latest endeavor to write a book sounds fascinating! Do keep us posted on what happens with that.

I just returned from my 9-day cruise to Canada/Nova Scotia. I tried to limit myself to one dessert per day, so if I was tempted at lunch time I had to skip it for dinner, etc. And I got LOTS of exercise due to all the walking required on a ship. It seemed like the dining room we wanted was always at the other end of the ship. lol And we both went to the gym about 4 times during the cruise. I didn't know what to expect when we came home and was not too disappointed when I saw an increase of 2.2 pounds -- not too bad considering all the food. I very seldom ever eat dessert when I am at home.

How's everyone doing on this "Columbus Day"?

I'm still recovering from my community's yard sale on Saturday and junking my living room easy chair and moving around all the furniture, etc. I have a couch and a loveseat in here too so still have a place to sit, one that's a bit more comfortable and better for my posture and where I get more/better light, etc. But I rearranged bookshelves (taking out the books first because it was too heavy to move with them in it) and I still have piles of books and other stuff around that I want to "put away" today.

I'm entering the National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) contest (November) again this year and am working on my plot for my book; am writing about a 63 year old woman, suspiciously similar in lifestyle to mine, LOL.

I know this is early, but rather than leaving it up to someone else to do, I'm trying to think of as many loose threads as possible before I leave.

I'll see you all back here on October 11th. May your month start out wonderful, and don't forget to sign in on the "Monthly Weigh In."

Hugs, Eve
