Fall arrived to Indiana this week. As I write it is currently pouring rain outside. I am not sure if I am really excited about it. I love the beauty of the leaves changing color this time of year–but I don’t like the drop in temperature. It seems like the older I get the more and more by body desires 70 plus degrees.
First Thing I am LOVING Lately…
A new weight lifting routine.
I took a few strength classes mid summer but they really didn’t fit well with my schedule so last week I took the plunge and started this three day a week dumbbell routine in my living room.
I have had to adapt it a bit since I don’t have a weight bench but it wasn’t hard–I just use a chair or the floor instead. I picked a routine I could easily do without a video or extra equipment so that I can do it while we are on our big RV trip.
I was surprised to figure out that I needed to go up to 10 pound dumbbells already. A lifting routine is so different than a cardio/strength combo routine –you can lift heavier weights.
Second Thing I am LOVING Lately…
My coloring bible from Tyndale Rewards.
A few weeks ago Tyndale Rewards offered the Inspire bible for 250 points. Considering retail cost of the bible is over $30 I was thrilled. I was even more thrilled when the following week Tyndale Rewards offered the Inspire:Psalms for just 100 points.
I don’t know if these will be offered again but you might want to sign up for Tyndale Rewards. It isn’t hard to earn up to 100 points when you first open your account and it is fairly simple to earn enough points per month for a book. One way to earn each month is to write reviews on Amazon and submit the link to Tyndale Rewards to receive points (you can earn 50 points a month that way).
Another simple thing to do is share your referral link to your friends on Facebook or Twitter and share the URL to your share with Tyndale Rewards (you can earn 50 points a month that way). Those actions right there will have you earning 100 points a month which is enough for most of their book selections.
Third Thing I am LOVING Lately…
An errand turns into a date day.
After we got home from our test run week of camping this summer, we made up a list of supplies that we figure would come in handy for our 5 month RV trip.
On that list was a truck canopy (topper) . We really hoped we could save money by purchasing a secondhand one. After 2 months of searching for either a red or black (matches truck trim at least) topper to fit my husband’s 2008 GMC Sierra with crew cab and short box we found one.
It was a good 2 1/2 hours drive to where the owner of the topper lived, but the low price made it more than worth the 5 hours of driving. We decided to make an errand date day out of it. We stopped at a locally owned breakfast diner on the way there and did a bit of shopping on the way home.
Most importantly we did a lot of talking.
