A quiet day spent on my favourite things:)


I got out this morning for another run along the BLM fence. I was aiming for the second mile marker, but didn’t make it. Next time we drive into town I’ll have to take better note of a landmark around there. I did circles around my mom who was walking instead. My phone was acting really weird though. It gave my pace as 6:18, 6:28, 6:44 while I was running, but recorded times over 7min when I looked at my splits afterwards. I can’t tell you which is right because the run still felt really difficult today:( Well at least I ran and maybe tomorrow will be better.

I got a quick body weight workout in while my parents were at the happy hour. Fifty squats, fifty curtsy lunges, fifty push-ups, fifty dips, fifty second planks, 50 reverse crunches, 50 crunches, 10 box crunches, 25 flutter kicks, 25 leg drops, 50 side leg raises, 50 back leg raises, 50 jabs, 50 uppercuts. There may have been more, but I can’t remember them at this point. I’m just trying not to lose all my fitness on this trip as that would make going back to Lyndsay’s workouts really tough!!!😳


I got my toque made today and thankfully only had to tink three rows this time. I forgot and put the ponytail hole in the nice part rather than near the seam. It is not as big and thick as I like my toques, but it is super soft:)


I spent some time in the sunshine this afternoon listening to Jane Eyre again on Librivox. I am enjoying the book and think that I can actually finish by New Years. Abbey I am on chapter 28 now:). Only ten chapters to go. I will do some more tonight once my headphones recharge.


I found the hallmark movies on my parent’s tv today and watched The Pumpkin Pie War. It was definitely not one of the best movies and having to listen to my dad whine, didn’t help! 🤣. I think I’d better keep my Hallmark habit to when I’m alone so I don’t torture other people! I got halfway through A Crush On You and will try to watch the rest as my dad is currently watching Avatar at high volume.

It has been another lovely day in Arizona:)

Have fun!

  1. Arizona, sounds like you’re in heaven. I haven’t had time to go back there for vacation in years!! I love it there, specially Sedona💚 Good for you staying on point while vacationing. That’s impressive. Ok thanks for NOT giving me an excuse to get my jogs in haahaa Seriously, Thanks for the reminder that I could put a little more effort in while on break and that I need a vacation to Sedona! 😀

    1. I was just reading about Sedona today. I don’t think I’ll get there though:(
      I’m glad I could inspire you, though it’s just the fear of how much it will hurt when I get back to reality that is keeping me on track🤣

      1. Yes, Sedona is so peaceful and if you do get a chance, check out Bell Rock. Haahaa I agree, the pain of returning to reality 😳

  2. Oh..!! You are so influential dear. Self motivation is so important… You do so much in a day.. You are really a strong and brave lady!! 👍..

    1. Every day:) It’s great! I get so much done in that hour🤣. I’m glad they’re social though and not just with each other holed up in the trailer!
