Another lovely day just like the previous, except I didn’t accomplish anything:(

Exercise:

I did a half hour run this morning where I managed to get every dog in town barking. Remind me not to go that way again! It was just a half hour and yet again the splits didn’t align to what it was telling me as I was running. I’m wondering if it has something to do with the turning as I loop back to my mom?? Oh well, I figure any running I do on my holiday is good:)

Reading:

I am on chapter 34 of Jane Eyre so I should manage to finish tomorrow. It has been such a good book. It makes me wonder if any book in my generation will withstand the test of time as this one has??

Knitting:

I thought I would have something finished to show you, but as usual I have had to rip it out multiple times, so there’s no FO tonight:(. I often wonder if there are knitters out there who don’t rip out projects multiple times??

I counted today and I have done 28 projects as recorded in Ravelry this year. Of course, being me, I was disappointed that they were mostly small projects. Oh well, at least I accomplished 28 things this year and maybe I’ll have 29 before the end of the year!😀

Oh my one bit of exciting news today was that I got sorted into Gryffindor House in the Harry Potter Knit and Crochet House Cup group on Ravelry. I’m happy that I got sorted though I would have participated again even if I wasn’t! I love how it helps me decide what to make! I can’t wait to see what challenges January brings!

Watching:

I watched Rocky Mountain Christmas today. It is a hallmark movie and was okay, though the ending was completely unrealistic!! The interior designer gives up her job in New York to run a dude ranch!?!?! I like them to have at least a hint of realism!!! I suppose my expectations are too high!

It made me think that I should look and see if I can find the movies based on Joanne Fluke’s books while I’m down here. Maybe I can watch them and perhaps my dad wouldn’t whine quite so much if I was watching a mystery movie😂

Well I think that is my entire day!

Have fun!

  1. I too rip out a lot, well, I usually tink back. Most projects (except socks) require a couple of starts.
    Congratulations on being sorted. I’ve been tempted to join. Maybe after I complete Loopy Academy.

    1. I too tink as I find it really difficult to pick up stitches after ripping out! Thank you, I’m glad to know I’m not the only one!
      I’ll let you know how it goes this time, now that I’m officially a part of it:)

  2. I agree with you, any day you do anything in the way of exercise is great! No matter how small!
    I went to the gym today for the first time in over a year probably! I’m hoping I don’t hurt tomorrow….but then again if I don’t, I didn’t work hard enough!

    1. Congrats Abbey, that’s great! You getting a head start in a resolution? Just remember to take it easy on yourself at first so you don’t get hurt:)

    1. Lol glad I could provide the reminder:) I really didn’t want to go this morning, but didn’t want to admit on here that I hadn’t 🤣

    1. Much better! One of the few authors I have read that might come close to Jane Eyre is M.M. Kaye, who wrote two historical novels about India. Excellent writing, compelling but very involved story, and enormous amounts of history, but they are probably 600 pages.

      1. Oh cool! I’ll check her out. All I kept thinking is what do we have to show for this generation, Fifty Shades of Grey isn’t exactly lasting literature!

      1. There are several beginning 30 day challenge series on YouTube. I am going to do one in the morning and one in the evening. My flexibility has gotten pretty poor, and I hope this will improve it over the course of this year. 😊

        It has been too cold to walk since Dec. 20 or so, and I need to get moving. This is the first time in three years that I have missed more than two days in row!

      2. That’s great you’ve found an online option! I’ll be sure to google that as it would probably help with my knees as well!
        That’s great you’ve been so consistent. I don’t think you can beat yourself up for this hiatus as your weather sounds horrible!
