My first day off and I’m awake at 6am thinking of a list of things I needed to get done today:( grrrr! Then I had so many things on the list, that I had no idea where to start,πŸ˜‚


I got out for a run this afternoon, but it was slow because of all the ice. It was beautiful out! I had waited for the afternoon because it was -6 all morning. When it finally hit 0, I figured that was my best chance for going. It felt good to get out!

I wanted to use my new headphones, but didn’t realize they had to be charged. Good thing I looked and hopefully they’re now ready for the plane tomorrow. My plan is to listen to Jane Eyre and knit my toque.


The tea in the David’s Tea Advent calendar today was white cranberry bark. I found it slightly tart or bitter. I’m not sure why:(.

I also had the December 24th tea of Santa’s Secret which was very yummy:)

Christmas Movies:

I have been watching Christmas movies as I did other things today.

I have enjoyed all of them:)


I also sat down and got 482 pictures labelled and deleted off of my phone so that I have a chance of being able to take some photos while I’m away. I’m glad to finally get that job done! Now I just have to remember to upload some more to Costco for printing when I get home!


I got a bit more of Frankie Presto read this evening. I think I’m starting the last part. I’ll take it with me and leave it for my mom to read when I’ve finished it. I’m definitely looking forward to the give and take book room where my parents are:)

Christmas presents:

I opened the presents I had been given today as I won’t be home on Christmas Day and I’m leaving at 4am tomorrow morning. I was definitely spoiled!

The rest of the day has been taken up with doing laundry, dishes, sweeping and packing. I’m almost happy with my packing though I figure as usual I’ll only wear half of what I’ve taken! For now I’ve put a pair of plastic circular needles into my purse, but I don’t know if I should even try taking them???

Well I’m off to bed as I’m getting up at a ridiculous time!

Have fun!

    1. Ok well I’m going to try:) where did you learn they were allowed? I’ve been searching online but never found mention of them:(
      Yes I need to take you for dinner still and we’ll have to celebrate Christmas and New Years:)

  1. A busy day indeed. The view of where you had your run is beautiful. Lots of lovely presents. I wish you a safe journey and a very happy time with your parents. Merry Christmas πŸŽ„ xxx

  2. I’m impressed that you can run in 0Β° weather. Do you know it was close to 70Β° where I live yesterday? Our weather is crazy here.
    I hope you enjoy listening to Jane Eyre. I loved listening. I thought it was excellent, and the narrator that I heard did an amazing job.
    Take care. Hope you have a safe trip. ( :

    1. Yup around here you end up running in a variety of temperatures, but mostly rain. I’m glad I’m heading to warmer!
      I’ve been enjoying Jane Eyre, but haven’t had a lot of time to listen.

  3. Merry Christmas AJ! Hope you had a safe trip and are loving the warming weather of my used to be home state. Where in AZ are you? Did you get to fly with your knitting needles?

    Stay safe my friend and oh, I love your gifts! Your kids love you!!!πŸŽ…β›„πŸŽ…β›„

  4. Please tell us if your knitting needles were confiscated. My fingers are crossed that you were able to take them with you. I hope you have a marvelous and relaxing Christmas holiday.
