I pulled a book the other day from an author that I'm not familiar with. The book was written in 2005. The book is called Suspect by Michael Robotham - no idea where I acquired it from. OH MY GOD - I couldn't put the darn book down and instead of working in the afternoon, I read and finished the book. It's the first one in a series and well, I can't wait to get my hands on the next one. There are now 67 authors/series on my FictFact web page. How did that happen? Even if I read one a week, I can't read them all in one year! Thank god, I don't have a thing for buying novels.
The other naughty thing I did yesterday was I went to a movie. Now that in itself isn't naughty, but I have three projects that have to be done this week. The movie was The Post and it was OK. It was a talking movie and I'm not good with them - I tend to not follow along, but the second half was pretty good - more action!
I did get some work done on a quilt and I want to show you something. The quilt is about half done and I hope to finish today. But have a look at the batting. This is a batting that came in a bag. You know - squished up in a bag. And remember that I was complaining about that before? Well, have a look.

Here's what it looks like when you don't do that. It just doesn't feed nicely and takes time to smooth out.

Remember I was telling you about my fiasco with the Kaleidoscope blocks on the weekend? Well have a look and you'll see what I mean. Ronda finally sent me the picture last night. Of the bad one. It was only when I was pressing the red pieces that I wondered why there was color against color and not color against black. OH NO!!!

|Yeah - stats from my spin class|
And this is the second chart with the power watts. Notice those little blips? Those were the times we were allowed to have a break! One flipping minute each!! It was a tough work out as usual.
But then another bad thing happened. As I was walking into the gym, I saw this girl with a coffee in her hand. This chick is already pretty hyper in the morning and why she would need a coffee, I don't know. However, in her hand was a cup from Tim's and it's ROLL UP THE RIM. Started today!!!
On my way home, I stopped for a decaf teaButUt I'm not going to go crazy! Still liking my decaf tea as well.

Oh yes - met up with the Registered Dietician from the DTOX. Yep - I put two pounds back on - I knew that - I could feel it. Could have been all the food (healthy) that we ate this past weekend. I think it's something else. Anyway, I had oatmeal for breakfast this morning and my tea. So I joined the 60 day challenge at the gym and go for my weigh-in on the weekend. Hoepfully that will get my butt into the gym on a more regular basis.
Have a super day!!!
