Fast Friday

Hello Friday! A lot has happened this week so here's a Fast Friday recap for all of you :).

Last Saturday we made it back up to the cabin. 

We spent some time walking around to see the fire damage. It was so sad to see all the beautiful trees and colors gone!

But it was also really amazing to see the drastic difference between the burned trees and the safe ones.

On Monday we spent as much time outside in the nice weather as possible. A storm was coming in and it was probably the last warm day we will have until spring!

Then we went back up to the cabin to help prep for possible mudslides. The storm that was coming for us was the remnants of Hurricane Rosa so we expected a lot of rain. 

Tuesday this awesome package came for me from Fire House Subs. That was definitely a highlight of the week. 

On Wednesday the rains came in and we spent the day getting our fall decorations out. When you have a small place to decorate you have to be sure to not over-do it and make it cluttered. These little gourds are one of my favorite ways to decorate. 

The rain has still been making its appearance now and then. So we've spent a lot of time in the house cleaning and doing chores. The good news is I found the remote we've been missing for about a month.  It was in the couch.

I was able to run twice this week!  I'm doing a lot of run/walk intervals to get back this time around.  My knee is feeling pretty good but not perfect. I'll still be working on physical therapy exercises, but I feel like I'm getting somewhere with it now!

That's our week in a nutshell. What were the highlights of your week?

Has it felt more like fall or summer where you're at?


  1. It has felt like summer in Colorado until the last few days. Finally feels like fall now. I'm going through the same issue with my knee it band. Do you feel like any particular exercise is helping you?

    1. I think the biggest help for me on this one has been lateral leg lifts. But to be honest, I’ve been pretty bad about physical therapy exercise this time around. I need to do them more often. How about you?

  2. I'll have to try that. I haven't tried anything yet besides rolling my quad and rolling on a massage ball. I have one of those really tight bands and may start doing some lateral walking with it above my knees. Hope you are running strong soon!
