It was an incredibly quiet day! I didn’t even get out of my pajamas until 1:45pm!
I spent this morning finishing off the scarf I had started last night. It actually turned into a cowl as it wasn’t very long. It will be nice and warm for someone though. It was just thirty stitches and knit each row, made with Wendy wool.
I have been reading Bringing Down the Duke by Evie Dunmore. This is the first book of the year for the Not Your Mom’s Romance Bookclub and I have to admit I wasn’t super excited to read it by the back cover description. It was available from my library online though so I figured I would try it. I have been really enjoying it. It’s about one of the first women to attend Oxford and she is on scholarship from the Suffragette league so must help with their cause. She’s assigned to convince the most powerful duke to support the cause. It’s been a very cute historical so far.
This afternoon I did another Hallmark Christmas movie workout. I watched Christmas Under the Stars which was just okay and then did a workout. I did a minute of jogging in between: 10 reverse lunges per leg, 35 crunches, 25 jacks, 5 burpees, 10 squats, 10 plié squats, 5 dips, 5 mountain climbers per leg, 10 pushups, 15 curtsy lunges per leg, 5 high knees per leg.
The movie didn’t seem super Christmassy and I think the low numbers in this workout prove that.
This evening, after a lovely nap, I met up with the Thursday night group for a run. It was a good thing I had committed to meeting people as there is no way I would have gone otherwise! We did 4.57km and I felt like I was running fast, but I really wasn’t and was actually running slower than usual:(
I stopped at Chapters on the way home to grab gifts for my friend’s sons whom I will see tomorrow. I had started the older son on a Robert Munsch collection and so this time got him More Pies which is set in Vancouver. I’m starting the younger son on a Dr. Seuss collection so this time he got Fox in Socks.
I always think starting a book collection for kids makes gift buying easier!
I also got them playdo and kinetic sand to go with the books.
Well I’m going to go finish my book.
