A good day that actually almost went according to plan.
After thinking it over, I got out of bed this morning and ran. It wasn’t fun to have to go in the dark again and it wasn’t a great run as I had a 7:06/km average, but I went and got it done. It was weird that I didn’t pass anyone today:(. I was glad I went when I got back and saw my stats in Runkeeper. Runkeeper was great today and sent me a summary of my year in running last year. I know it includes walking but it was still neat to see.
A blogger has recommended I try using Strava, but I thought that was for elite runners. Before I do research, anyone know anything about Strava or have an opinion??
I haven’t done any other exercise today as I’m too busy enjoying my nice loose body after my massage:)
Well we at least got some work done today:). We read a book about animals in winter and illustrated a poem to start our new science unit. We reviewed how to add zero. I wasn’t planning it, but each student took a turn telling me an equation that had +0 in it. Sometimes the students come up with the best lesson plans themselves:). We also finished the writing and drawing of our socials studies project about us in the world – community, city, province and country. The students did really well and tomorrow we will assemble them.
The funniest story came to me today. I have Lyndsay’s son in my class and she came to tell me. Yesterday morning she made her son his favourite, a breakfast bagel. He’s not a morning eater so she put it in his bag and told him he could eat it when he got hungry. What does he do! He gives it to his daycare worker and says, “my mom made you this sandwich because she likes you”. Now there’s a way to get out of eating🤣🤣. The same kid today came wearing a pair of glasses- completely fake, but I love how children try different things out until they find themselves (hopefully at some point!)
I got the happy news from my oldest friend that her and her husband are coming to visit in March and that they are expecting their first baby. My other closest friend was scheduled for her c-section today. I guess I’ll be doing a lot of knitting if baby things this year! I am so happy for both of my friends, but it did bring up the question, what’s wrong with me? Why hasn’t that happened for me? Don’t worry, I’ll get back to normal soon😏
Still working on Baby It’s Cold Outside. Most of my reading time today I spent trying to get caught up on blog reading. It was really starting to stress me out that I was missing so many. Please someone tell me how you deal with blog reading- there must be a better way as I need time to read my books too!
I had David’s Tea Organic Peppermint Amour. It was okay, but nothing life altering for me. So far, I’m glad I didn’t pay for this new box of tea that I am working my way through!
I am in the middle of watching Home For Christmas while I am knitting the stockinette in the round part of my sweater. I have seen this actress, Danica something, in other movies, but in this one she is so ditzy, can she ever shut up??? I obviously didn’t notice it in her other movies or else she is an amazing actress!!!
From reading the blogs I have found some more knitting books that I’ll need to explore!! Shopping:
It was shopping in reverse as a woman came and picked up the mug I sold on Facebook this week. Another thing gone✅
I did manage to finally pop into the grocery store and get some milk and veggies and fruit. I only bought one thing not on my list- mini avocados. I am so excited for breakfast tomorrow morning now!!!
I was looking for more packages oatmeals as I took that for lunch today and it worked really well, but the store didn’t have any that were gf/df. I’ll look around a bit, but that might be something I have to ask my mom to bring home with her. I would just take oatmeal from home- but I only have old fashioned oats that need to be cooked and I only have a kettle at work. I don’t think it will work, but I may need to experiment!
Well I’m going to curl up with my movie for another three rounds of stockinette stitch.
