This month has been fairly uneventful, mostly due to my wisdom tooth surgery. I had two teeth removed and unfortunately developed a dry socket in one, which put me out of action for about two weeks :( It's on the mend now, but I'm going in again in November to get the other side done. This time I will rest instead of trying to go to work, and hopefully I'll recover faster. I'll have 3 big teeth to make something out of too!
Jeff: Who Lives at Home, which was really well written and entertaining as well as meaningful. I highly recommend it, there were some great laughs too.
Twin Peaks: No explanation needed, watching it AGAIN. I'm hoping this time I make it to the end of series 2. So far I've only ever made it about 2/3 way through before giving up. We also watched "Fire Walk With Me", which, though it is a prequel, I would definitely say DO NOT watch it if you've never seen the TV series, it will totally ruin everything ;)

Wildwood, by Colin Meloy and Carson Ellis (Book one)
Technically, a kid's book, but in all honesty... Sometimes kid's books are more meaningful and better written than a best seller... I'm looking at you, 50 Shades of Beige. And I have to break up the existentialist musings occasionally.
I've been working on a few DIYs for this little blog, so keep an eye out for them in the next few weeks.
Spring Gardening: I've been planting up a storm, lots of new flowers, herbs and veggies have been going in, I will share some pictures once I'm done. I had a run-in with a couple of red-Back Spiders, which are potentially deadly. Urgh. One of the hazards of gardening in Australia.
Gym: I'm trying desperately to get into a routine again, I have this plan: Monday - Pilates, Tuesday - Body Combat (martial arts), Wednesday - Body Pump (weights), Saturday - Body Pump (weights, Sunday - Body Attack (cardio of the most intense kind! as the name suggests) It's a bit stop and start right now with my teeth and other things getting in the way, but I suppose by mid-November I will be really back into the swing of it.
Finally, I wrote way back in this post about how I would like to remind myself of things I am happy about and grateful for. Somehow my weekly goal fell by the wayside, so I thought I should pop it in here.
Sunny days, time spent with C, having an organised garden, future food I will be harvesting from the garden!, new locally made shoes (sharing soon!), cuddly kitties, day trips to the mountains, antique shop treasures, snail mail, making a little sewing room corner, flowers, soil under my nails, crickets chirping, childhood nostalgia, supportive ladies in blogland - and that includes all my lovely new readers, thanks for visiting my blog, you guys make me smile :)
That was pretty long, thanks for reading :) (It's a double post to make up for skipping yesterday's post!)
