Well I’ve definitely had a quiet weekend!

Exercise:

I was hoping this morning that another woman would join our group who would run with me, but I yet again ran on my own. I told my friends walking I would be about forty minutes, but it actually only took me 28 minutes to get around the park. I did a little extra on the flats to make up some time and get my average pace down from 7:01 to 6:57🤣. Nobody should ever let me see a stat!

It felt great today as it was a double exercise day with a Lyndsay workout this evening. I don’t know why I like that woman so much when she made me do: 150 jumping jacks, 82 push-ups, 140 squats, 87 sit ups, 215 lunges, and 84 mountain climbers. It was all split up of course, so I didn’t know I was doing that many! I changed burpees to mountain climbers so my downstairs neighbours wouldn’t lynch me and I split the squats so I did normal, sumo and plié to work my entire leg. I was definitely sweaty by the end!

Reading:

I really wanted to be reading The Trouble with Gold today, but these sleeves are taking forever and I can’t watch movies with them so I’ve been listening to Wives and Daughters on Librivox. It’s a good book- has even made me smile at times, though it still seems familiar. Maybe I can read my book tomorrow during my seminar.

Movies:

I watched The Sweetest Christmas tonight. It was fine. I liked the ending.

I got some laundry done and the house tidied slightly, but mostly…

Knitting:

I have been a knitting machine for the second day in a row and hopefully will be done this sweater tonight!!! Now I just have to figure out how to get it to count for a HPKCHC class!

Product Review:

I tried another product that I got from the GF Expo today. It was a Chocolate Chip Cookie from Wendel’s.

The other day when I took cookies to my secretary, the principal commented that they weren’t like chalk and I didn’t really understand what she was saying, but now I do! It was perfectly circular and quite pretty, but it was so dry it disintegrated in my hand as I was biting into it. It also didn’t have much taste:( I won’t be buying this product. I would suggest they explore the world of vegan butter because their cookies needed some!

Cooking:

I also tried making Cinnamon Oat Milk from Emma’s Eats tonight. It wasn’t difficult to make, though it did take about 35 minutes, but only because I only had a Tea strainer. If it’s good tomorrow I will definitely buy cheesecloth before I make it again:)

Well I’m off to finish watching Christmas in Homestead with the impossibly cute mayor and hopefully finish these sleeves!

Have fun!

  1. I see you mentioning vegan stuff every now and then in your posts. Are you slowly turning vegan (if you don’t mind me asking)?

    And that first photo is beautiful!

  2. I didn’t like vegan butter when I tried it but I don’t think I used it in baking.
    Even if you haven’t finished your jumper at least you have made a giant leap forward with it 🙂

  3. It’s a good thing you didn’t spend your own money on the cookie right?! The one benefit to getting it at the expo.
    Way to go on your run!! Isn’t it the best when something takes less time than you thought it would?

    1. You’re right! I’m so glad I didn’t pay for it!!!
      Yes I was super happy as I remember when that run would take me forty minutes!

    1. Ooo I’ll have to try that out:)
      Just wanted to let you know your package should be in the mail by Friday:) Sorry for the delay!
