Another lovely day spent with my mom. Can’t believe I only have four days left of her company and my holiday!

Exercise:

I knew I had to get my run done early or it wouldn’t get done, so I went out the door this morning for my 6km. It again, wasn’t pretty, but it’s done!

This evening I thought about skipping my workout, but didn’t want to admit to doing that so I did a ladder workout.

Six exercises: burpees, mountain climbers, jump squats, bridge with toe taps, plank shoulder taps and alternating side lunges.

Round 1: 20 seconds, 10 second test

Round 2: 30 seconds, 10 seconds rest

Round 3: 40 seconds, 10 seconds rest

Round 4: 60 seconds, 10 seconds rest

Round 5: 40 seconds, 10 seconds rest

Round 6: 30 seconds, 10 seconds rest

Round 7: 20 seconds, 10 seconds rest

I was sweaty by the end which of course was the goal. My arm didn’t like the planks, but I survived and moved slightly closer to my goal:)

Teaching:

I met my parents at my classroom as my dad delivered my chair back. It works so well now!!!! My mom and I tackled the containers so they are done and look so much better!! I actually managed to get rid of a few and the rest got organized and colour coded, of course 🤣

Shopping:

We managed to only spend 45 minutes in my classroom and then it was off for some shopping. My mom likes to shop when it’s for me ( I seem to be her Barbie doll), but she hates it when it’s for her and today was for her. She needs clothes for her trip!!! Amazingly we both found a lot of stuff! I probably didn’t need anything, but I bought it anyways. More than half was new workout gear which always inspires me to get active so that’s good!

I have my mom’s stuff all washed (she would have to pay to do it, but I don’t), and I will tackle my stuff this weekend as I don’t have the time crunch she does. I did get all the tags cut off and all of it entered into my Stylebook app:)

Eating:

After all that shopping, my mom and I were starving. We hit the Coquitlam Grill for lunch. It’s not fancy at all, but boy is it good, fast and cheap! I had the jambalaya rice bowl that was so good! I still couldn’t finish it though!

House:

I’ve lived in my place for ten years and for ten years my bedroom has been driving me crazy! My place was built during the time that overhead lights weren’t popular so my light switch turns on a little lamp in the corner. Grrr I just want to be able to see something!!! A while back I had bought a hanging fixture and asked my brother to wire it to a plug in for me. Well actually, I just left it on his dining room table🤣. I will now do this with everything I want done as my sister in law was after him and today he came and put up the light for me! I love it😍😍😍😍😍😍. Let there be light!

Knitting/ Crafting:

I promised you a picture of the scarf I made for my friend Kari. Here it is and I just hope she likes it and it’s long enough!

I have gone back to working on my rug as I am just 1.5 squares away from being done. I would still like to be done before school starts, but I’m not sure it’s going to happen:(.

I’ll get to it or it really won’t happen.

Have fun!

  1. Go rug, go!!

    Light fixture — We had no switch for a light in our bedroom and lived without one for 45 years. I KNOW how to celebrate with you!!! On the bright side — we’re making up for lost time. There are THREE switches to the light fixture in our present home!!

      1. I don’t think anyone could understand the lack of a light fixture and switch unless they had done without. I would have had broken bones if anyone had left things on the floor between the door and the lamp across the room.

  2. I really need to get moving!! I’ve been in an exercise slump but I’m going to get my butt on that treadmill today. Thanks for motivating me AJ. 😊
    I just lightened up our bedroom with new lamps, curtains, and a couple of new pictures and chairs. It has brightened everything up and I feel so much better now. No more drab browns.
    Love the scarf. ☺️

    1. That’s great you’re getting back into the swing of moving:)
      Ooo a bedroom transformation sounds wonderful!! What colour did you go with instead of brown?

      1. I left some of the Brown because my bed, dresser and hubby’s hutch are brown. But I incorporated a white duvet cover with beige and white pillows, white chairs and lamps. And I bought two pictures with white, light brown and light blue in them. My curtains are tan with blue flowers, and I have white sheers that soften the look so well. I love it. It looks so bright and airy now. ☺️

      2. It works so beautifully together. Every time I look in my room now I feel all kinds of happy and I think to myself: Why didn’t I do this years ago? 🤦🏽‍♀️

  3. I have lousy light throughout this house – they have the silliest place for plugs too. The jambalaya rice bowl looks wonderful as does your scarf. I am craving something spicy now. Your friend will be very happy with your handiwork.

  4. The scarf if really pretty. I love the color and the stitch pattern you chose. True confession: I scrolled right past your workout and focused on the photo of the food. Is that bad? 🙂
