My day was just full of what I wanted it to be, but I’m sure I’m going to pay for this.

Exercise:

I met up with Sarah for a slow run around the park this morning. (I wish the gorgeous colours showed up better in this picture!) She ended up in emerg on Tuesday as her blood pressure went crazy. I spent most of the run wondering how quickly I could call 911 if anything happened. I am glad she is feeling better though. We grabbed a tea afterwards as she is already starting to go a little stir crazy at home.

This evening I did a quick few exercises before bed- squats, front kicks, roundhouse kicks, back kicks, high knees, calf raises, front jabs and crosses.

Cooking:

We have a family going through a tough time at school right now and do have been providing meals for them. I did a chicken, broccoli and rice bake that was super easy and only took one pan. I put a can of cream of chicken soup along with 3/4 of a cup of water into the pan and stirred it up. Then added one cup of rice and one pound of cut up chicken. I then added frozen broccoli and mixed it all up with salt and pepper. Cooked it at 375 for one hour. I really hope it tastes okay, but I can’t even try it to be sure:(

I also got some extra chicken cooked and chicken Caesar salads made for lunch this week.

Knitting:

I spent most of the day knitting (after I washed and blocked a sweater as I’m trying to work my way through them all). I got my shawl/scarf done. I really hope it blocks bigger! I will show it to you once it’s blocked as right now, it’s just a wrinkly mess.

I also got a tight cowl made to use up the end of the blue yarn from my sweater and hat. I figured out what I wanted and then made it happen and am super happy with the end result:).

I played a game of yarn chicken with both of these projects and actually managed to win! The scarf had about an inch of yarn left and the cowl has about 9 inches left🤣

I promise you’ll get pictures when I can get done nice daylight shots.

While I was doing all this knitting I was listening to podcasts and I actually went through seven podcasts😳. Maybe I listened to too many.

I also watched Grosse Point Blank. I have to admit it wasn’t as good as I remembered, but still quite enjoyable:)

Eating:

What have I eaten today?

Two slices of toast- one with pb&j, one with cinnamon spread

Orange

Cheese on cucumber

Carrot, celery, orange pepper with hummus and guacamole, boneless,skinless chicken thigh

I think I’ll colour in today:)

Well I have to be up early for my run in the morning…

Have fun!

  1. I think the broccoli bake will be fine. Cream soups are generally salty, so it should be about right. You could always enclose a card that says top with grated cheese during last 15 minutes in the oven if desired.

  2. It was so thoughtful of you to make the meal. The chicken, broccoli, and rice bake sounds perfect to make when taking a meal to someone – really easy to make and transport, as well as tasty.

  3. All the knitters I know are such good multitaskers. You can knit and listen to podcasts at the same time? That’s awesome! My knitting would look like a tangled mass of yarn if I did that! 🙂

  4. Very kind of you to make a meal for them – and it sounds good, too! Like the idea of letting them know to top it with some cheese when they warm it back up 🙂 I liked Grosse Point Blank as well, though I haven’t seen it in years.
