What can I say, every vacation day is a good day:)


I started the day with a 5.7km walk with Anne and Moiya. It was already really hot out when we walked around a local lake, but I enjoyed it anyways as I knew it would be my last walk with these two.

Coming back I managed to grab pictures of the Easter Island garden art someone had. They have four or five in total and they are all different. Some people are so creative!

This evening, I managed a 5.1km run to complete the Squad Runner mission for today. My mom didn’t want me running on my own (nice to know that no matter how old you get- you’re still your mom’s little girl, but I really don’t think anyone was planning on stealing me๐Ÿคช๐Ÿคฃ), so I ended up running loops around the John Henry Pub and Marina. I managed to add on a little bit more so I only had to do 9 laps to complete this mission on this hot, muggy night. I even managed to be a tiny bit faster than I have been this summer- not back to spring running times, but improving.


I was working away happily on my parent’s boat afghan, until I realized that I was missing a stitch:(. I have ripped back two rows, but still haven’t found the stitch:( I might cry if I have to rip out 25 rows of knitting as this would be my 6th restart of this project, and here I thought it was going so well!


I went through my posts today to review my titles so I will hopefully not repeat too often. I had to laugh at myself as lately I’ve been worried when I only get 30 something likes on a post and as I looked back and saw the posts at the start of my blogging that had only one or two likes, I decided not to worry, I am slowly plodding forward:)


A few months ago I did this after my sister in law introduced me to the idea and I keep forgetting to add it to the bottom of my posts, though I think it’s an awesome thing to do at the end of a day. So here goes:

I am thankful for:

1) having the opportunity to spend time on a boat in a beautiful place with wonderful people

2) having the sunshine that will give me vitamin D and make me thankful for fall weather temperatures

3) for getting holidays from my job as I know how lucky I am to have such an extended period of time

It has been a very quiet day of mostly reading. As I looked around I saw that my parents were doing the same thing. Am I becoming my parents???๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿคช

Have fun!

  1. The garden art was great! And you had another great day.

    I like how you ended by telling what you are grateful for. Itโ€™s always good to think of the positives in our day! ๐Ÿ˜Š

  2. Is the stitch on the afghan really necessary? If it’s not, I don’t think anyone will realize it’s gone! It’ll prevent you from undoing your hard work on the project

  3. I have gone through that phase of OMG why am I not getting more comments, likes etc… on my blog then realizing that it is still a lot more than I had before. I then remind myself that I blog for me and those who want to read and comment will and that’s fine too!

    Those Easter Island tiki things are too funny that would have made me stop and take a photo too.

  4. Let’s hope you find that stitch soon, and kudos to you for sticking with it after so many starts. Enjoy the beautiful scenery and weather while you are able. xoxo Regina

    1. Thanks Regina, Iโ€™m sticking with it because I promised my parents a new afghan, otherwise it would definitely be in time out!
      Iโ€™m enjoying every second:)

  5. As long as it’s the good habits you’re referring to, I don’t think you should worry about whether you’re becoming your parents. ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Hope you find that stitch. Alternatively, you could look for it without undoing your project, and just secure that one dropped stitch. If the stitch count is really important, maybe add a stitch in your next row! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    1. I did finally find it after taking out three rows.
      Yup Iโ€™m hoping I only get the good things from my parents!!๐Ÿคฃ

    1. Unfortunately I had to take it out as the pattern is linear so it really showed up that I was a stitch out:(
      Otherwise, yes I may have resorted to just adding a stitch as I do dislike tinking

  6. Love the blue shoes dangling over the blue water … I think we do become our parents eventually. My parents were avid readers also. I can remember before I started kindergarten, they would read the newspaper after dinner or on the weekends, and I’d sit next to them with my chair and basket of Golden books.
