Well another quiet day of the usual.


I got out for just my usual 3km run to the park and back. It was super quiet and it didn’t rain on me- both of which were a bonus!

On the way home I stopped in for some veggies at the grocery store. Yes I made sure I was there about the same time as last Monday when I talked to the cute, nice guy, but alas, I didn’t see him today. It seems as though flour is the new thing that everyone is hoarding. I am definitely not normal if this is normal behavior!

This evening I managed to get my butt off the couch for a workout using my stability ball. I did anminute of jogging between these exercises:

Adductor squeeze, burpees, pushups, sit ups, hamstring curls, froggers, pikes, reverse crunches, Russian twists, pullovers, mountain climbers and a plank.

It made it fun to try and think up moves to do using the stability ball:)


I have spent another day knitting and reading and thankfully I finally have a finished object to show off!

This is the jeweled cowl which is a free pattern on Ravelry. I was thinking it was too wide, but it turned out exactly 14″ which is what the patten calls for, but I’m 14″ short in length. I have no idea how that happened as I definitely don’t have a tight gauge. Oh well, hopefully it will dress up a black shirt:)

I am back working on my spindrift shawl by Helen Stewart as I’ve learned that I don’t like having multiple projects going at the same time I can’t wait to be done this so that I can start a sweater!


I finished Dare She Date the Dreamy Doc by Sarah Morgan only to have Goodreads tell me I had already read it. It was a good, basic romance. I saw it all coming, but it was just what I needed right now.

Well that’s another day of physical distancing (that’s what they’re calling for here now instead of social distancing).

Have fun!

  1. Physical distancing sounds better than social distancing, which it what its called here. Oy! about your book that has happen to me and I am always like I don’t remember this novel I think I just return them, as life gets busy sometime, and then recheck them out.

  2. The cowl is just beautiful, so delicate with that yarn! I am so excited to see where you end up at the end of the month. You’ve put in a good amount of miles!

    1. I am super happy with the cowl and hope it will dress up outfits while keeping me warm
      I can’t wait to see where I am too. I was hoping to hit 300km, but I’m not sure that’s going to happen. Hopefully I’ll be out of Washington thoigh

  3. The cowl turned out very nice … is that throughout Canada to refer to it as physical distancing? I measured the park path today – nine feet wide – whew! Only one other person there, a young guy, and he kept his head down while walking.
