I really have had a very quiet weekend. If you know me from this blog, you’ll know it’s not normal for me not to be accomplishing things. It has been nice though:)

Exercise:

I really had to drag myself out of bed this morning and I’m not sure why. I did join Brenda and Dennis for our run and since James still isn’t back, we did loops around Brenda. It totaled 4.62km of loops which is great as it gives me a 1.3km cushion for the week. We went a new way at Colony Farm today and it might just give us a way of lengthening this run (which would be great)! I had a nice picture of the run, but am once again out of data storage here so If you’re curious check out my Instagram at ajb1243 to see it:) I also managed to text a total stranger very early on a Sunday morning. I really did think I was texting James!🤣

Cooking:

I tackled another recipe out of the current cookbook I am using. I think I will continue with this one until the end of September and then pick another.

I had gotten the ingredients ready yesterday so it took no time to get the Scrambled Egg, Potato and Spinach Breakfast Tacos whipped up for my lunch. I can eat breakfast food any time of the day!

I found these tacos to be easy and quick to make. The first thing I noticed that I would change would be to steam the spinach rather than sauté it so that these could be slightly healthier. It was yummy with the addition of the garlic though. I felt the recipe relied too much on salt and didn’t have enough other spice and flavour ingredients. I only made six tacos so the amount of filling was fine, but I think it would be very scanty for eight tacos!

I had planned to also do the Sally’s Baking Challenge for September today, but I ran out of eggs after making the tacos so it will have to wait until next week.

I also got my parfaits ready for recess snacks this week.

Knitting:

I am still waiting for confirmation about the stitch for my hem on the Not a Boring Sweater. I see other people have finished so I am wondering if they didn’t notice the omission or are just way better knitters who didn’t need confirmation. It’s just my personality- afraid of making a mistake.

In the meantime I have finished a seed stitch cowl in green and have started the same cowl in beige. One of the HPKCHC classes this month requires you to make two equal things- so these two cowls will complete that requirement. It’s also nice to have mindless knitting while I am listening to the MTA, Knitting and Romance book podcasts:)

Reading:

I am working on finishing my next NetGalley book that is due on the 17th. This is A Wedding In December by Sarah Morgan and while I was t completely invested for the first 20%, I can barely put it down now, so I should be done soon.

Time:

One of the Marathon Training Academy podcasts I listened to today had a time management expert on it. One of the things she talked about was having only a few little expectations each day and that these will produce big results. With this in mind, I got every piece of laundry done. It feels great as usually I get my clothes all done, but not all of my towels, etc. well today, it all got done!

I also got a sweater washed. I noticed the other day that my sweaters need to be washed and it really only took a few minutes to get one done and laid out to dry. One step closer to having them all done.

Well that was my second quiet day and I’m going back to my mindless knitting and podcasts.

Have fun!

  1. Nice to hear of your quiet weekend. Bravo on getting laundry done in a day – a nice achievement. 🙂 I’ve got a pile of sweaters in the hamper that have been waiting to be individually washed for quite some time; your post reminds me that ‘one at a time’ will get me there eventually. I’ll tackle ’em slowly. 😉 Have a great week, AJ!

  2. Sometimes quiet weekends are the best! It’s nice to just chill instead of feeling like you’re just go go go. Washing sweaters is the worst! I feel like they take 1986398 years to dry haha.

      1. I’ve found that flipping them in the morning and again at night helps to dry them faster. I also lay them on a towel since that’s what my mom does. No idea if that helps though!

  3. sounds like you had a good day. I love when I finish a task and feel like I can check that box. When I only half finish something I feel like I didn’t finish it so therefore I didn’t complete anything
