Well I had a lovely day and I still have two more days of weekend!!!πŸ˜€

Exercise:

I headed out this morning for a trail run with my friend Sarah and Kula. We thought we had picked a good place that would have been protected from snow by the thick forest, however, the run was one big icy, slushy mess. We tried to extend it along the sidewalk a bit, but that was also icy and slushy:(. I think my calves are going to hurt tomorrow!!!!

I also got an hour walk along our local sea wall. It was super busy out there today probably as it was sunny and no snowing and 8 degrees!

I will also try to get my squats and crunches done today too!

Socializing:

I got picked up at 11am this morning and headed out for fun with two colleagues. It was an awesome day of doing whatever took our fancy! We were going to stop for lunch, but the restaurant didn’t open for another twenty minutes so we headed to Platform 7 for coffee. I had a almond milk chai latte and we all shared a vegan, gluten free double chocolate cookie. It was lovely!

We walked down the block to a cafe I’ve been wanting to try called Chomp. It is vegan comfort food. It was cool as they bring popcorn to the table to start and then I had Mac n cheese as that is something I don’t get very often. My friends had burgers with Beyond Meat patties. The burger and fries were very yummy too!

We carried on to downtown and had a lovely walk on the seawall and then sat and had a cider at a local brewpub. We couldn’t believe how many people spend Saturday afternoon in a brewpub!

All in all it was an awesome day with two good friends!

Reading:

Last night I finished Anything You Can Do by RS Grey. This book reminded me of the RL Mathewson series Neighbors From Hell. This is a good enemies to love book, though I have to admit I found RL Mathewson’s version funnier.

Today I have been making progress on The Other Alcott by Elise Hooper. So far so good!

Knitting:

I am trying to get this vest finished so I can move onto anything with an easier yarn!

Have fun!

  1. Sounds fun – you still have all your snow and one more day off. Next week most of the U.S. schools have “Winter Break” … they had another day off of school Tuesday due to the ice.

    1. I actually have two days off still as Monday is Family Day which is a holiday across Canada. After that we go until the end of March

      1. Wow – never heard of Family Day. Wasn’t there a holiday to celebrate the Canadian flag in mid-February? I can remember when the Union Jack was flown and I was still living in Canada when the new flag was introduced.

      2. Is Family Day just a holiday for schools/government entities AJ? See for us, it is a school holiday (most schools are closed all week for their “Winter Break” … they didn’t have that when I was in school – ostensibly it is so the schools save one week on heating costs for the school during the coldest month of the year, and kids are off President’s Day anyway), plus it is a day off for the post office, banks and stock market.

      3. It’s a holiday across Canada so most people get it. Friday was one of two school closure days. We work six extra minutes a day so school can be closed two days a year to save money.
