September has come and gone! We had a more laid-back September, even though work was very busy and it ended with very hot temperatures in the high 90’s. I’ll be excited for the weather to cool down a bit!
The college football season started and of course we were very excited to watch our Buckeyes! For the entire summer we couldn’t get the local FOX channel because of a contract dispute with DISH Network. It was resolved just in time to watch the Sept. 17th game versus the Oklahoma Sooners. That was a great win!
Todd played puzzles again in September. Of course, Noodle wanted to “help”.
We went to La Jolla Shores beach with Sally and her kids. Hadn’t seen them in a long while and it was fun.
Beach hair, don’t care.
Todd got invited by some work colleagues to go indoor rock climbing.
Todd got a new MacBook Pro at work.
I decided to buy some new clothes that fit me. A lot of my clothes were too small and didn’t look good. I figured I should still buy clothes that look and feel good, even if I’m planning on losing a few pounds.
I haven’t been able to wear the long sleeves and utility jacket yet, because it’s been so darn hot still!
Todd competed in the San Diego Triathlon Classic – Olympic Distance. We got up really early that Saturday and I went with him in the dark. He got his gear set up in the transition area and I watched his swim start. Here he is getting out of the water after swimming a mile.
On the way out of transition with his bike.
At the end of the bike segment.
Midway through the run.
And at the finish line with his medal. I’m so proud of him!
During his 1.5 hour bike ride, I went to Panera to have breakfast. It was nice because it broke up the hours of waiting for him, since I couldn’t see him on his bike until the end of the bike ride anyways. Way to go Todd!
We went to lunch at Kappa Sushi and they happened to have their anniversary specials. So I got an awesome & delicious poke bowl.
And soft-shelled crab sliders! So yummy!
We went to see Gordon Goodwin’s Little Phat Band downtown. Todd loved it!
I finished an extensive project at work, getting ready for an audit. So Todd and I celebrated with dinner at China Max.
He also got me a little lemon bundt cake, which was yummy. I presented to the auditor on 9/28 and it went really well!
We played around with some Halloween costumes at Target. I think Todd makes a good Captain America!
I got a haircut. (I get a haircut every 3 months.)
We went to the September Chef’s Tasting Dinner at Veranda at Rancho Bernardo Inn. It was yummy, but too much food so I didn’t eat it all.
We cooked a super-yummy miso ramen soup in the pressure cooker.
The leaves started turning!
We got a ton of new outdoor furniture at work. They also expanded the wifi to outside, so people can work outside and have meetings outside if they wanted to. It’s nice.
An extreme close up of Noodle curled up.
More Noodle photos.
He found a patch of sun!
And finally, a double-decker of relaxation!
We started watching some new fall TV shows. So far we like This Is Us, Lethal Weapon, Designated Survivor, and Pitch.
Onwards to October! I hope the weather cools down so I can spend some time in my craft room!
