It’s so hard to believe that another whole week is gone! It wasn’t my typical day today.

Exercise:

I got up early for a workout with L. We did sprint intervals and I got to add 4.22km to my yearly mileage. These sprint intervals felt way easier than the hills last week! We then did 3 sets of squats with a shoulder press, hamstring curls, sit ups, calf raises, skipping and burpees. It felt great to get a workout done, but I was dripping sweat!

Good thing I got up early for that because I have done nothing else active today.

Blog Hop:

Since I didn’t teach today and can’t go a day without talking about school, I will do another day of Teacher Turned Mommy’s awesome back to school blog Hop.

A new box of crayons are so exciting to me! I actually like getting any new supplies like this. First of all, I try to keep them in their original order for as long as possible (yes I am one of those types🤣). I love when crayons are brand new because they are sharp, as soon as they have lost their sharp point, I don’t seem to love them as much.

I remember as a kid there was only one box of Crayola 8 crayons available, now there seem to be as many different crayon options out there as there are objects to draw. I haven’t had one of the bigger boxes so I’m not sure, but I think they might just overwhelm me with the choice🤣

The other thing I love about a new box of crayons are the names of the colors. I always inspect the names and find it very interesting which ones are chosen. I don’t know what happened to just red, green, blue, purple, grey, black, yellow, and white. Now I regularly have children asking to borrow sienna, mulberry, and sunflower!

Medical:

After loading the dishwasher, taking out the garbage and having my first nap of the day, I went off to start my holter test. If you’re unaware this is where they put five sensors at certain areas of your chest and you wear a heart monitor for twenty four hours. The worst part is the netting they put over top to keep everything in place. You can’t change, shower or get wet for those twenty four hours:(. I am super itchy and some of the sensors burn, but I was told that was normal when you have sensitive skin. The whole thing doesn’t hurt, but I’m super aware of it. I just can’t wait for it to be over at this point!

Knitting:

I have to write down absolutely every time I get up so after a couple of errands to get gas, etc I have mainly been sitting on the couch. I had a second nap of the day and now I have gotten to row 70 of 80 of the body decreases and am waiting to hear from the designer if I can skip the last ten rows and start the increases. I’m not sure if this is allowed in a test knit, but I’m short and I don’t think I need another ten rows of decreasing:(. We shall see what she says.

While I am waiting for an answer, I did something I never do, and casted on another project. This is going to be a fall coloured cowl that will hopefully fulfill my HPKCHC September class requirement. Hopefully it will also get another three skeins out of the stash.

Well I’m on my fourth Hallmark movie of the day and will get back to the cowl.

Have fun!

  1. thanks for continuing with my blog hop. I think having those sensors on would drive me crazy too, but if it gets you more answers then it is worth the suffering. And you got to knit and watch tv. plus taking naps is never a bad thing. hope you get some answers

    1. I’m enjoying the blog hop as it really has me thinking about things I don’t normally give much thought to.
      I don’t think they’re going to find anything wrong with my heart though!
      I did enjoy spending my day knitting though!

      1. I have one hour and forty five minutes to go and I am seriously counting the minutes!!!
        You’re right- it will at least rule something iut

  2. Hope you get helpful results from the test! And good for you making such great progress with your sweater! Hopefully the designer will be OK with you making the alterations you need so that it fits you. That’s what everyone is going to do with the pattern anyway. 🙂

    1. I actually have perfectly followed the pattern so far, but wish she would get back to me about that stitch so I could get back to knitting on iy
