An odd thing for me- but my day didn’t have a plan. It turned out just fine😀🤣


A 6.3km run this morning. We ran Coquitlam River and I just trotted along at a slightly slow pace while Dennis did circles around me. We agreed to the shortcut on one side and then I took the longer route on the other end. We got to the bridge in 30 minutes so someone (not me!) had the brilliant plan to add on. I only needed 5.1km today, but I love how Dennis always pushes me. One thing I noticed was that I run much faster on concrete than I do on the trails! I’m finding since my last fall that I’m quite cautious when running the trails.


Hmm what did I do today- I went to Chapters and returned two things I had been gifted that were too big. I looked around, but felt guilty buying a new cookbook when I haven’t finished trying out all the ones I have. I’ll hold off until I think of something I really need.

We managed to stop off at the thrift store and I found a cute new outfit for work and a new pair of running shorts.


I’ve had an extremely good eating day- a homemade granola bar, 3/4 of a plate of fish and chips and cucumber slices with cheese. If only every day could be like these past two- the pounds would be gone in no time!


My mom talked me into cleaning the patio today. We started at the top and made our way down. It looks so great! I really need to put a quick cleaning on the calendar each month to keep it looking this good. I want to be out there all the time:). Too bad it’s supposed to rain a lot this week:(


My mom and I binged Hallmark movies on our last night. We watched the end of Ms Matched which we had started last night. This movie was cute, but the unrealistic ending really bugged me!

We moved onto a new Hallmark movie- Eat, Drink and Be Married. We both agreed this was a really bad Hallmark movie. The script, the plot and the acting were all bad:(

Finally we watched Love at First Dance which was super cute!

Well tomorrow is back to reality.

Have fun!

  1. Alex and I were just talking about some sort of cleaning schedule last night. That’s so weird you posted about it today. I almost think it’s hard to figure out what needs to get cleaned and how often so I never make one.

    Like you I feel bad buying a new cookbook when there’s so many recipes I haven’t tried in the ones I already own.

    1. Yes! My mom and I were discussing a schedule because I used to clean Saturday mornings but now I run so my house is a wreck. I need to find something that works for me!
      Yup both of the cookbooks I looked at, I’d love to get, but I figured I’d better use the ones I have first!

      1. I want to spread it out a bit so it’s not like I’m cleaning every weekend. At the same time I don’t want to feel like all I’m doing is cleaning after work. It’s hard to figure out!

      2. Yes it is! I had read about one job a night but then something comes up on that night and it doesn’t get done and I’m out of sync:(

  2. finding a routine for cleaning is always a good thing. I find that if I plan to do a few things every day it doesn’t feel as daunting as trying to get it all done in one shot.

    when I hike on the trail it is a lot slower than when I walk the roads even if it is the same elevation changes. I think there is another level of caution when you run/hike on the trails because of the rocks and roots that have to be taken into consideration. I also tend to hike curvy-er trails than I walk on the roads.

  3. We have a schedule that works for us. We clean when company is coming, and that is fairly often. If guests are not comfortable with our dust, they are probably not comfortable with us. I hope you find something that works for you.

  4. Busy day, but it sounds like a good one! It’s hard building a routine for cleaning, but it does help once you have one in place. Still struggling with that, honestly 🙂

    1. I used to be so good as I would clean every Saturday morning, but since I started running Saturday morning, it’s thrown it off completely:(

  5. Sounds like a great evening with your mom even if the movie ending wasn’t the best. I’m not a fan of unrealistic plots either! What is your favorite cookbook you own?

    1. It was a great evening:). Hmm that’s a tough question! I feel like I don’t really know my cookbooks right now, but I want to do another cookbook review in the summer months. I’m thinking it might be Oh She Glows but I think we might have to wait and see:)
