Another lovely day, but how could it be otherwise when I can do whatever I want:)
I have to admit my book and bed were very pleasant this morning so it took me a while to get out for my morning run. I did get to it though and was doing quite well until my phone talked to me and I realized it had somehow lost signal again as there was no way I was doing a 4:40km! I continued despite this and got 25 minutes in before I arrived at my parents place for a visit:). It continues my running streak to three days and is better than nothing!
I had a massage this afternoon so didn’t want to do a weight workout as I like to enjoy my nice loose muscles for at least one night, so I went for a walk instead. It was so gorgeous out and there were lots of people out.
You get two pictures from my walk as I just couldn’t decide which I liked better 🤣
It was so great to get hugs from my mom and Dad today and to get caught up with them! I hope I get to see them everyday of my holiday and get to spend some time with my mom before they skedaddle off on their next adventure!
I also spent time with my nephew today. I learned from my sister in law this morning that my nephew was on his own for the first three days this week, so I texted him to find out if he wanted to do something. He came up with go-karting, lol. When I checked the website I determined that I wouldn’t be able to go on the adult course
So I took along his neighbour and friend too so that he could have some company. They seemed to really like it! My nephew was nervous as he had never done this before, but with each of his three races he got more confident. It was great to see him having fun, but let’s not talk about what 24 minutes of racing cost for two boys!!!😳
We proceeded to have lunch afterwards because these boys hadn’t eaten in an hour and were in danger of starving to death. They had subway and I had take out Hot and Sour Seafood Pho
It was very interesting, but I admit I didn’t like it as much as my usual pho. The boys then had Menchies which I bought to keep them quiet while we waited at Costco for gas, unfortunately they had no dairy free yogurt this time so I had to do without. Probably a good thing!
I finished my book, Tangled Up in Tinsel by Candis Terry while waiting for my massage appointment.
It was a good read. This is the third book in this series and I greatly enjoyed it. The family dynamic is interesting and realistic and I was rooting for the couple. I don’t think it’s going to be the last of the series though, or at least I hope not!
I have started my next NetGalley book but I’ll save that until I’m done.
I’ve also made it to chapter five of Treasure Island on Librivox. I hope it doesn’t get too scary for me!
Nicole of The Bookworm Drinketh was talking about watching Hallmark movies and I would love to be doing that, but I’m out of them right now, so I went with the movie version of Wives and Daughters to see if it’s as good as the book. So far it’s staying very close to the books and making a good background for my knitting:)
I’m going back to it now:)
