It was a day of R activities, but all good:)


I had arranged to meet a friend for my run this morning. She would be walking, but it would allow me to run on the dyke, rather than just doing the usual.

I was aiming for seven kilometers, but we got to talking and I started running late. I was feeling strong and got 4.32km in under the blazing sun. I need to remember to get out at 6 in this heat as 9:30 was way too hot!

I also got a walk in this evening for an hour and a half and 100 reps of core exercises. I’m thinking I’ll do a tough workout every other day so that my legs don’t suffer so much, but on the other days I need to do core and stretching.

I got a quick stop for more gray yarn and some other essentials and then headed home.


I’ve only gotten one pattern repeat done today which is disappointing as I want to get this blanket done so I can get onto a cute summer top I keep picturing.

I have always organized my yarn by colour, but I’ve run into a problem. I bought yarns in two different colours this past weekend and don’t want to separate them. Anyone have an organization solution for me?


I finished Playing House by Ruby Lang today, my latest NetGalley book.

The story of Fay and Oliver. They work in the same industry so have known each other for a long time, but one Saturday at a house tour changes their relationship. It moves fast, but it’s really not until they slow down that it becomes real.

These characters were very interesting. Fay is a partner in a urban planning firm while, Oliver is a freelance planner specializing in historical preservation. They are both driven in their own way, but also with many doubts about their failures in life.

The plot moves very quickly, but it does not read unrealistically. It keeps you moving through the book and wanting to know what happens next.

There is humor and introspection in good balance.

I enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone who wants a light read or enjoys architecture or home renovations along with their romance.

Thanks to NetGalley and the author and publisher for the free ARC in exchange for an honest review.

I have since started the book, Intercepted by Alexa Martin and am loving it so far!

My not one, but two naps today are the relaxing part of my day. I just couldn’t seem to stay awake!

Well there you have it- my running, reading and relaxing.

Have fun!

  1. I’m not exactly a DIY girl, but a light humorous read is always welcome!🤗 Thanks for the tip. Looking forward to seeing the cute summer top you plan to knit after the blanket!

    1. I wouldn’t say this one is DIY- more just a love of architecture and houses.
      I can’t wait to be done this sweater!

  2. I love Intercepted. I can’t wait for her third book to come out. I just preordered Playing House. Please stop reading books I want to read, as I can’t keep up.

    1. Lol I’m having the same problem as well! I’m loving Fumbled right now, but am going to hate waiting for the third one to come out!

      1. Yes!! They don’t take anything and I always appreciate that in a female character. I was just sitting here giggling as I read- my neighbors probably think I’ve gone over the bend!

  3. The 3 R’s for you… 3 W’s for me. Weeding, walking and waiting (in line at the post office!)

    Sounds like you are having a great week… enjoy the rest of your week as well.

  4. sounds like a good day. if you are looking to change how you sort all your yarn, you would sort it by weight.

    I love a good light fluff book.
