It’s been another quiet day, but that’s probably a good thing before the chaos starts again on Monday.

Exercise:

I met up with Sarah for a run this morning. We got a little lost, as usual, but it was fun!

This evening I managed to get out for a walk as well. It wasn’t running so I figured I had better get it while it was good:)

I also did squats and a plank for the second day. Need to start building up the muscle again. I swear they all atrophied while I was laying on the couch last week🤣

Family:

Well we finally settled on a place to rent for Christmas next year. It only took two days. It was a tough decision because there was one that was an amazing deal but required the kids to sleep on air mattresses if there was the gorgeous one with enough beds but double the price. We’re going to go with the amazing deal as we can do a lot of events for all that money. It’s tough to do group things as there are just so many different personalities in my family. It will be interesting to see if we survive our first family holiday together.😳

Baking:

I grabbed a few groceries after my run and made a batch of Bisquick biscuits to use up the bisquick I had in the cupboard. They looked good, but were super crumbly. I think it was just the nature of Bisquick, or at least that’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

Movies:

I watched A Shoe Addict’s Christmas with Candace Cameron Bure this afternoon and loved it. It is such a cute movie! It follows the basic outline of A Christmas Carol but its shoes that move her through time. Most of the shoes were gorgeous so of course it gets my vote for being a good movie!

Knitting;

I also finished up the cowl I had started earlier. It used up three skeins of yarn and was a super easy knit while turning out pretty. It used Morena yarn and the free pattern off Ravelry called Cowl for Coba. This is a “no think” pattern that shows off yarn very nicely.

I am happy with how it turned out.

I have also spent some time weaving in ends on my temperature scarf. I feel like I may be old and gray before I get them all finished.

Well I’m going back to watch another Hallmark movie:)

Have fun!

      1. I hope so – this was really strange for the Southwest – the weather is strange everywhere – we got to 55 yesterday, and I think 48 today – today was a gorgeous day. I’ve already gotten 30 miles walked this year.

      2. Wow you are doing amazing! It has been raining like crazy here! I’d better pick it up as I’m only at fifteen km so far this year

      3. We had a good week though AJ – tonight is freezing rain, so I sleep in tomorrow and will enjoy it after all this walking – you have the worst rainy weather, that would be hard to go out in, no matter how diligent you are. I’m headed to bed … second night at near 1:00 a.m. – first day back to school for you tomorrow!

      4. Except when I looked out I discovered it either dried up or never happened – it sounded like the end of the world with the wind though. I’m not going to beat myself up over it, but no freezing rain. I will walk in the rain, but not in Winter – more so in nicer weather. My boss called for something and I said “did it rain where you live (he’s about 20 miles from me)?” He said yes, freezing rain too, just like you said it was going to.” Hmmm.

  1. That’s a pretty cowl! You must be loving the room for organization all those used up odds and ends from your stash have afforded you! I have medium baskets that are filled with leftovers…I need to get cracking on using some of them up; I should make a dish cloth, there’s three bits of cotton that would do well there!

  2. Love the cowl! Gorgeous stitch pattern, and a lovely colour 😍😃
    I’m doing squats too! Started a challenge January 1st. Day of the month times two is the amount I do every day 😊
