Well my day had a few changes and was a lot cooler, but overall, quite a nice vacation day:)


I got out this morning for a 3km easy run. This is all bonus mileage for the month so didn’t want to go crazy, but wanted to stay in the routine. It’s a good thing I wasn’t going for time or anything as I got stopped by an old neighbor and talked with him for a while.

This evening I went out for a walk. I looked at doing a workout but didn’t want to get hot and sweaty before trivia so decided on a 6km walk instead. It was great to see one of my old students out running with her dad!


I met up with Corianne and Lyndsay to plan out our road trip to Seattle this weekend. I wasn’t much help until I had processed it all and responded this evening at 5pm. Boy am I a slow processor! I think we’re going to have a lot of fun!


I had blueberries for breakfast and when I met up with Lyndsay and Corianne I gave into temptation and had the waffles at Green Mustache again. Cori and I really should have shared it as it was entirely too much food for me! I hope she’s willing to share food this weekend!

For dinner I am super proud of myself for making the decision to eat a salmon patty at home and just have a sangria at the pub.

I worked out that 20% of my meals for the week is four meals and that’s been really helping me lately to stay on track. I know my weekend will all be out so I have to keep this in mind!


I have spent some more time sorting my yarn by weight and it seems to be going okay. I just have to decide now if I’m going to group lace, light fingering and fingering in one box, sport and DK in another and worsted and bulky in a third or try to have each on a separate box. Thoughts and opinions are appreciated:)

I’ve also been knitting on my crewneck, raglan sweater and am quite happy with it, though as usual I am worried it’s going to be too big:(

I had to pass two tops onto Lyndsay and Cori today as they are just too big for me.


It was just the three of us and you could definitely tell!

    1. It is cool because we live in a temperate rainforest, but within an hours drive is dessert. Thank you- I’m not the best picture taker and I’m only using my phone so it can be tough to get a good picture to show you all

  1. sounds like a good day. I love that you are looking at the 80/20 across the whole week and dealing with it that way.

    If you have space to separate each weight into it’s own container it would probably help you find what you need for a given project since you’d just have to find the weight needed and then pick the color from there. But, if you don’t then, whatever works, works! Could you put a divider in the box to separate the weights in the one box?

    Can’t wait to hear about your trip to Seattle

      1. I was thinking of a divider too if you use a single box, or at least bags of various weights within each box. (Is that a bit much? Lol.) It’s just that if it were me, after all that sorting by weight, I would like the yarn to remain separate – I couldn’t stand sorting within each box again later if the occasion arises.
        Also, you’re pretty good at trivia! 🙂

      2. True! I’d like to think I’d remember but know that I won’t remember which yarn is fingering and which is light fingering!

  2. A good couple of days for you, but then all vacation days pretty good because its vacation! As for the yarn, what about bagging one type in the box, so you can easily grab what you want?

    1. Yup I feel bad saying every day is great, but it is a holiday so I guess I would feel bad if every day wasn’t great

  3. I would do a box for each type as that would make it easier for me mentally when I’m looking for something! Then I wouldn’t have to root through what I didn’t want. Only thing is…then you have to store a whole bunch of boxes
