It seemed a little weird to not get up and run right away today!
Last night I had put apple pie oatmeal into my crockpot and used a timer to have it turn on around 2am. I still got up to burnt oatmeal. I think it’s the recipe and I keep forgetting which recipe I’ve done and keep using it:( If anyone has a good crockpot oatmeal recipe, I’d love to hear it!
I got my first sleeve finished and reattached this morning and was super happy with how it looks now. I think that if I get the second sleeve done, this will actually be a sweater I wear a lot:). Unfortunately my hand is a little sore from all the knitting😂
I went through this morning and gathered up 6 bags of clothing and books for donation. It felt super great to get rid of some stuff and I know I have more that can still go! I was selling my stuff on a Facebook group but my clothing doesn’t seem to go well. I’m guessing because of its size😂
I was really ticked when I got to the store and they only gave me four stamps for my six bags. They are being given things to sell- you would think they could be generous with the stamps!! Then I saw the stamp card was only valid until March 31st. Grrr I don’t like companies that are out to get the customer any way they can. I’m going to have to look for somewhere else to shop!
My mom and I tackled the rest of the store that I started earlier in the week. It took me about two hours and yet again I came home with a ton of workout gear. At least I got about five things that weren’t:).
We were both hungry by the time the marathon shopping trip was over so we stopped at the local pub for lunch. This is one of my favorite places to go because they have gluten free/ dairy free fish and chips. My mom and I split a two piece order and get very kindly brought it on two plates for us:) It was still way too much food for me!
We stopped in at my place and then were off again. I had planned on doing a ten kilometer run on Sunday for the Squad Runner mission but it got changed and I had to do it today. I didn’t really want to run the same thing I had run yesterday so my mom volunteered to go for a walk on the dyke so I could go do my run out there. It turned out to be super busy out there so I suppose I could have gone by myself. It was a beautiful day for some exercise though so I won’t feel bad about dragging my mom out🤣
Of course I somehow managed to screw up Runkeeper so it wasn’t doing my four and one intervals, so I changed it and every time the announcement came on for another kilometer I walked while counting to 60 in my head. I had to go a lot further than I expected before 5km came along, but it was a nice day for a run, except for the headwind going both ways!
Lately, I had been thinking that maybe I could handle a half marathon but after how tired I was today after 10km, I’ve changed my mind. I’ll need to work on that longer!
I went and got my eyelashes and eyebrows dyed this afternoon. This is a necessity when you’re as blond as me. I often wonder why I didn’t start doing this much younger?!
I also had a lovely nap this afternoon so now I’m going to spend some time knitting my second sleeve.
