It was another good day, so I’m still waiting for that second shoe to drop.

Exercise:

Well I yet again didn’t work out this morning. I woke at the alarm but set it for later and was instantly back asleep. When I’m not laying there pretending to sleep, I figure I need it!

I was home in time for a run in daylight this afternoon. I don’t know if it’s the time- right after work, or if I’ve suddenly become stronger, or what, but I had another amazing run tonight. I ran almost 6km, though my phone died at 5.79 and felt amazing! I was strong at the end and carried on past my house cause I felt so good!! I don’t know what it is, but I hope it keeps up!

Tomorrow I’m hoping to get out for a run in the morning because it’s the only way I’ll make my mileage goal for November. I still have 11km to go in two days😳

Teaching:

I was principal today, which was a surprise, but thankfully it was a pretty calm and quiet day.

We finished off the short vowels with u this morning so we’ll get to move onto the long vowels. I love it when things start getting more interesting. Lol my new kid said he remembered our sheet from Kindergarten. I wonder if I’m going too easy on my students??? Something to think about for the new year!

We finished our letters to Santa, and the torture of the Christmas concert song officially began! I will be singing Santa Claus is coming to Town in my sleep and by December 21st I should be officially tired of it!  The children already sound pretty good to me and we figured out the lineup today, now we just have to tackle how not to jump off the risers or sound like a herd of elephants getting onto them!

Knitting:

I got the second colour done on my scarf at work, or at least it might be done. I am doing a scarf in garter stitch and a variety of colours just to use up my odds and ends at work, so the question is, do I use the yarn up or just make each square the same (forty rows)??? Opinions?

Projects:

I worked on my photo album project again tonight and realized I only have fifty prints left to label. Hopefully I can have this done before the weekend!!

Baking:

I have been trying to come up with a good cinnamon bun recipe ever since I had to go gluten free and dairy free. I’ve come close but haven’t found a terrific one yet:( Tonight I wanted something sweet so I searched mug cakes on WordPress and band across a cinnamon roll mug cake Here. For one minute and thirty seconds, it was really good!! It would be an awesome snack with tea!

I’ve used several new gluten free, dairy free products lately, but I think I’ll group those into another post:)

Reading:

I’ve been making my way through another Frederik Backman novel, My Grandmother Asked Me to tell You She is Sorry. I got another chapter done tonight:) I’ve been really loving the Scandinavian authors lately, though I need to get to the library soon to get my next book club book.

Watching:

I have now watched six Hallmark movies, and tonight was A Rose For Christmas.

It was cute, of course and had a happy ending so it fulfilled my requirements:)

Maureen Gets Real gave me a good idea this morning when she suggested watching them while I was doing chores or jobs. I tested it out by watching A Dream For Christmas this morning while I was tidying the kitchen and it really did make the job much more palatable! It was nice to not work in silence!

Well if I want to run in the morning, I need sleep so I’m off to bed early.

Have fun!

  1. The cinnamon roll looks yummy!!
    I think for the scarf I’d do equal rows for each color and once I’d used all the colors I’d repeat the colors I have enough yarn to do the same number of rows. The other option if you haven’t started yet is to knit the scarf the long way and do an even number of rows, like 2 or 4, and you’ll end up with long stripes. Good luck with whatever you decide.

  2. Way to go on your run! Do you eat anything before you run in the morning? I noticed that if I run without eating anything, I don’t do very well. Maybe that’s why you felt stronger running after work since you had food in your system!

      1. I know you’re gluten free but if you have gluten free bread that you like try it with peanut butter! That’s what I started with and it’s worked well for me. Just find what works for you 🙂

      2. I will try that. I just often find it hard to run with a full stomach but I really don’t want to get up even earlier!

  3. Hope you reach your running goal. Good luck!
    For the scarf, if I make squares, I would eventually get annoyed seeing that there’s always yarn left over! If you’re like me, then you might want to use up the yarn. 😉

  4. Is that all in one day!? Kinting, and principle and evening run… and bun .. and .. .about those squares… I would make them identical by size but I might not understand the question… also I would like to see a picture of what you are making! I don’t know why but your posts aren’t showing up in “Reader” section… so I constantly miss something 🙂 like what’s happened with those “handwarmers” Did you finished them!?

  5. Mmm…cinnamon rolls! When I take pictures with my phone, I upload them to the laptop and edit them so they’re 600 pixels or less, depending upon if a photo’s portrait or landscape. Loading pics 600 pixels or less to WP saves you room for the long run.
