So long October, trick and like an old friend

- So proud of my workout calendar that I am posting it for all to see.  I give myself one of those teacher "good job" type stickers for the days I have a three mile walk or work out to an exercise video indoors.  As you can see, I waffle most on Monday and Friday, but I made it a couple of times on those days.  :)

- Funniest Halloween Day experience:  a printing client said she gives an onion or a potato to teenagers who come to her door for treats who are not wearing a costume.

- A beloved old knit night shirt resurrects itself from the back of a drawer.  I had completely forgotten about it and wore it last night.  It feels like an old friend.

It's November!  Time to start on a new calendar and I just did my workout, so I get a sticker.  My boss says she can always tell when I work out before work, because I'm so energetic and chatty.  :)  I hope you all have a marvelous weekend!

Happy November, Lynn! Love the sticker idea. It's a good way to visually appreciate all your hard work. :)

lol @ the onions and potatoes. I had a friend once who went to great lengths to make "fake" chocolate bars...just used folded paper inside and rewrapped it. Yeah, too much time on her hands. Everyone here had a costume last night...kudos cuz it was a pouring rain windy mess!

Have a beautiful weekend!

Granny Annie -

Thank you - I'm proud, too.

Filip -

It is - I am happy all day when I work out in the morning, in particular.

Talon -

Happy November, my friend! Someone asked me if I give myself a prize for a certain amount of stickers. And I don't, but I love seeing them up there and hate seeing holes.

That's funny about the fake chocolate bars. :)

Stellar calender performance! Nice doggie pic too! Luckily I get paid ti exercise 5 entire nights per week-
If we hand out bad treats we expect to get egged around here! I heard a Dad say "Get something for the boys" to his little girl- She picked out a plastic toy spider!
Gotta love old, comfy Jammies- My collection is extensive

Hi Lynn .. your friend's place sounds like a good food bank at this time of year - lots of dropped potatoes and onions!

What a great thought .. cheers Hilary
