It was just a day of usual items and getting things done.


After quickly tidying my house, I got out for a run that felt significantly better than the past couple of days. I got 4.85km done and only stopped because my runkeeper paused the session without my permission. I only had about 100meters left so it seemed like as good a time as any to stop.

This evening I got out for another run along the River with Dennis because I can’t resist saying yes when it means I can have company on a run. We got exactly 5km in and had a decent pace except for the walk at both river crossings. I definitely wasn’t upset about them though! Dennis is a great running partner as he stayed with me the whole way even though he can go way faster!


Tavia came for her knitting lesson this morning and she learned how to decrease. She’s doing a great job and her dishcloth looks fabulous. She also has a plan for a cape for her cheetah stuffie🤣😀

I have spent lots of time knitting today and am down to just 8 rows of the yoke to do! Maybe I can be done tonight!


I finished A Gingerbread Romance by Lacey Baker.

The story of Adam, a baker who is stuck doing basic cookies and donuts and Taylor, an architect longing for home. These two team up to create a life-sized gingerbread house for a city competition. Through the process they find more than the right recipe for gingerbread.

This story was very sweet and realistic. I enjoyed how the plot and pace were both realistic and it would make a great introduction to the Christmas season. I loved hearing of all the Christmas traditions and should have made a list of them all for myself.

The characters were interesting, and while there was a lot of internal dialogue, there was also a lot of growth and self-learning.

If you enjoy the traditions of Christmas this would be a great read for you.

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

Well I need to get back to knitting.

Have fun!

  1. sounds like another good day of all things you enjoy. you are certainly making the most of your last bit of summer

  2. Great day! So glad your young friend is enjoying knitting so far and has plans for more! Very wise of you to start her off on a dishcloth – so often people start kids on scarves, which go on for far too long. A cape for a cheetah sounds like an excellent second project!
