~ I finally remembered to make syrup from the 1 lb box of strawberries in the fridge. All but 3 of the berries were useful, so there was very little waste. Next time, I though, I need to remember to use less sugar than the recipe calls for, because this batch turned out so sweet that it could be candy!

It also yields about 300 ml of syrup, which isn't as much as I was hoping for, but it's still something, and it will still flavour things well, which is all I need.

And now I have stewed strawberries from the leftovers, which I'll probably eat over toasted English muffins!

~ I can't believe it's October already! 3 more months and 2015 will be over.

Because it's a new month, I feel like I ought to make a list of goals to accomplish before November. I usually end up failing miserably when it comes to goal lists, but over the past few years, I've gotten better at doing a lot of things I used to do badly at, so maybe this time it will actually work out.

~ The rain came down really hard last night, and while the area didn't get flooded, I know I got pretty lucky. Seeing videos of some cities in southern NB made me appreciate that PEI missed the worst of the storm. There was enough water falling from the sky here to reduce the road outside my house to about half a lane's width by the time it really stopped falling. Glad I didn't have to be outside in it, either!

~ 30 situps today! 15+10+5. Each time it gets a little easier!

~ Months ago I got a 375 ml bottle of Torani caramel syrup because it was marked down to $1.99 at Foodland. It normally sells for $7.99 a bottle, so for that price, I wasn't about to pass it up, even if I didn't know at the time what I'd use it for. Lately I've been adding a tablespoon to a pink mug of milk and making really delicious milk that I don't want to stop drinking! I keep hoping that the store will have more marked down bottles, but I haven't seen any since I bought the caramel syrup. Shame, because there are a lot of Torani flavours I'd love to try!

~ On the downside, I slept like butt last night. Had trouble getting to sleep, then I had trouble staying asleep. I'm hoping that being tired tonight will mean I'll be so tired tomorrow morning that the same thing doesn't happen, and that I can get a decent day of sleep then. Fingers crossed, anyway.
