It’s been a lovely day:)


I went out this morning for a run, but it didn’t go all that well as I was super hungry. Running after not eating for 15 hours wasn’t very successful.

I got out again this evening for a much longer run! This one was much more successful and finished off my 9km Squad Runner mission.


I spent the morning cleaning and tidying my place. I gave myself three hours to get as much cleaning done as possible. I love having a clean house, but so don’t love cleaning!


I spent this afternoon cooking and baking. I started to make the dressing for tomorrow when I realized the ground pork I had wasn’t gluten free so then I had to go looking for more. I tried two stores before I found ground pork, and I never found any more non dairy eggnog:(. There went being organized and prepared:(

I am still waiting for the pork to thaw so I got the apple crumble done for tomorrow night’s dinner. I also got the maple nut scones prepared for morning. They definitely aren’t the eggnog snickerdoodle doughnuts I wanted to make, but they will hopefully be good.


I have spent the rest of the time knitting my green vest. I’m hoping it’s ready for tomorrow but we’ll see. I really wanted to get a white tree put on it, but that is definitely not happening before 8am tomorrow morning.


I have definitely been hitting the Christmas movies hard today. I have watched the original Miracle on 34th Street, Christmas in Connecticut, A Very Merry Mixup, The Christmas Ornament and I am now watching Hitched For the Holidays. This is a new one for me and I am enjoying it. The lead male is gorgeous, but human. Hopefully it ends as cutely as it’s been going along!

Merry Christmas to all!

  1. Christmas Eve, and Christmas Day is meant for binge watching Christmas. I also think many of us have to make last minute grocery store runs, I went twice today myself 😉

  2. Merry Christmas! I feel for you and your food woes – my husband was running around trying to find vegetarian sugar-free jelly (jello) to make up for family Christmas – not an overlap that exists except in a South African brand obtainable via Amazon, it turns out!

  3. Merry Christmas. I hope you enjoy your holiday with your friends and family. Glad your baking went better even if you couldn’t make all the things you planned.

  4. I do the same thing with cleaning- I’ll be like, “ I give myself about 2 hours to get as much done as possible” super motivating! Maple nut scones sound super yummy. Hope they turned out great (I’m sure they did since you are making um’)!
