It turned out better than I thought!
It doesn’t matter if it’s a national holiday or not, I still had my usual Sunday morning run. Unfortunately I seemed to twist my knee weird when I was getting out of my vehicle:(. I managed to run and walk on it, but I’ve been icing and elevating it this evening. I did manage to get 6.8km in this morning. Of course, I got to the furthest point and the skies opened and we were running where there is absolutely no tree cover:(. Thankfully I went with the hat and vest this morning, but I was worried about my phone! Lol I made Dennis go out in front of me as I told him in no uncertain terms that I was NOT keeping up with him today! Run ✅
I got lots of walking in today, but decided to do without the workout in order to give my knee a little break.
It was a very quick tea for me and then I was home to shower and out the door again to meet up with two friends. We met at my friend’s place downtown (thankfully in sunshine)and then started on our Canada Day festivities. It started with lunch at Meet:)
This is a vegan restaurant that I had only been to once before. I ended up having and orange cream soda and a Mighty MAC Burger. Definitely not my usual fare, but I’ve been craving a burger so figured this was my chance. We actually all ended up having a burger.
It was extremely yummy, but I haven’t eaten since and am still full from 9 hours ago!!! My burger was a black bean burger with Mac and cheese and crispy onions on top. It was extremely good, but I still think next time I will have an appetizer so that I have room for dessert!
The view from the restaurant was cool too:)
We walked across town to where the official festivities were being held. I love that walking across my city takes a whole fifteen minutes:). We were commenting that there seemed to be less people this year, but maybe we were just earlier as it was crazy later in the day.
This was the quiet area as when we walked back to the other side it was wall to wall people! The funny thing was that we actually ran into someone we knew!! I managed not to run into another person when we walked by his place of work, which made me happy!
We saw some cool Canada day stuff
But I have to admit that while my friend was enjoying the crowd, I was enjoying this view even more!
We left about five o’clock and I have to admit that I once again felt that something was missing. I don’t know what it is, but these festivities never live up to my expectations. I am starting to wonder if I would enjoy a small town celebration more as I feel like these big ones there’s nothing to do but edge your way around the area and then go home. Oh well, it was still super fun to spend the day with my two friends and be out in the sunshine:)
I got back home to a gray day so I’m happy I left here today. It did give me permission to work on my rug square (after a short nap). I managed to complete the square:). That leaves me only one week behind and hopefully we’ll have a gray day at some point where I can make that up!
Well I have to go read for an hour as I have two book reviews due by the 10th and figure I had better read these books for an hour a day! The rain has just started back up so I’m okay with being inside reading:)
