It's a windy and cool Monday here in Calgary... you can definitely feel that fall is in the air. Such a change from last week and our hot hot temperatures. I understand that there is a chance of snow later this week. Brr!

But I am still here in my capris (wore flip flops when I went out earlier) with my slippers and a fleece sweater on.

I went back to the gym today for the first time since my knee gave out a few weeks ago when I was trying the Couch to 5K Learn to Run program. Instead of walking/running I did the recumbent bike for 30 minutes. I then went and did a few squats, my usual arm and back and chest weights, and then a few leg extensions with a light weight. Sure, my knee was tired and a little stiff afterwards, but I thought all was OK... so I took myself to the mall thinking I would look for a pair of shoes to wear when the snow flies later this week... I looked and looked for shoes and all I came home with was three new tins of tea from Teaopia and a very sore knee!

I have no idea what I will wear for shoes later this week... perhaps my runners? Won't that by stylish??!! LOL!

I know what I would like in a pair of shoes, but can't find it... I'd like a little heel maybe, but it has to be a wide heel.... black shoes.... comfortable but still a little stylish... slipons... sigh

Anyway... I am home now with Ibuprofen in my system, a cup of tea and an ice pack on my knee (I might need another sweater LOL!). And since I can't do much else right now, I think I will try to create today!

I have a monochromatic card for you today... I was inspired by a card I saw on Susan's blog... if you haven't been there to see her simple and clean creations, take a minute or two to visit. I love what she can do!!

I don't like my card as much as I liked hers, but that's OK....
