It was a pretty quiet day but still nice as I had my mom for company.

Exercise:

I met up with the group for a run this morning and ended up doing circles around Brenda as otherwise she would have been on her own. I still got 4.5km in and had a nice visit. I’m happy it was a bit more as that gives me a little cushion this week.

Shopping:

I stopped on the way home at Costco and couldn’t believe how busy it was already when it had only been open for a few minutes! I guess it’s never quiet. I grabbed a new planner as it was driving me nuts to not have one!

Knitting:

Still just doing stockinette in the round on the Not a Boring Sweater.

Baking:

I had Bookclub tonight and plums were mentioned in the book we read so I did a plum upside down cake. It turned out tasty but not pretty as the batter went below the plums so they ended up being in the middle:(

Reading:

This morning I finished the book for Bookclub. It was How to Stop Time by Matt Haig. I really enjoyed this book as it’s about a group of people who don’t age as quickly as others and so end up living hundreds of years. I guess the history geek in me liked all the historical aspects and I liked the premise of being able to see what happens to the world over a long period of time. A lot of the women in Bookclub didn’t love it as they wanted more action or felt that he was a whiny main character. I would recommend it if you like history:)

Bookclub:

Bookclub was fun as always and really great to see everyone as I think I missed the last one. I’m glad it didn’t go late though as I was tired driving there and home!

It’s always a feast at Bookclub!

Well I have ten minutes to knit another row before bed.

Have fun!

  1. I’m always impressed with all the running you do. Go baby go!

    Loving the update on your not boring sweater. Can’t wait to see what it’ll look like when it’s done.

    I should find a book club in my area. I feel like I’d enjoy it 🙂

    1. Thanks! It’s always a challenge to get out there but I feel great after:)
      I can’t wait to be able to wear my sweater!!!
      You’d love Bookclub- food, wine and books- always a good combo!

  2. Oh, that answers my question, Haig can’t be the one who talks about depression. I wonder who I’m thinking of. The real downside of my new pills is the memory issue, but it’s worth it to sleep well to be honest! And I have a little pad for to-do’s that I think of so all’s good. Well done on keeping your fellow runner company by doing loop-backs so she wasn’t alone.

  3. sounds like you had a good day even if you felt it was quiet. that book sounds interesting.

    I hope today goes smoothly for you and you are able to take all the children who were placed in your room and make the most of it for everyone in the room.

    1. The book was interesting and I would still recommend it, even if others in Bookclub didn’t love it. No one openly hated it.
      I’m hoping for a good day!

  4. I’ll have to check that book out! One of the things on my list is to get a new library card for Philadelphia so hopefully I can get it done soon and grab some more books to read. I had not idea that Costco sold planners! It shouldn’t be too surprising but I’ve just never seen them at my store.

    1. Oh yes a library card would definitely be on my list!
      I was surprised to see a fancy one there as my Costco has the plain black day by day one each year, but I hadn’t seen this type before!
      I need to get caught up on your blog!
