It was a good day- mix of out and in.

Exercise:

I am very thankful for my running buddies. I started the day with a gorgeous sunrise 10km run. My running buddy is already starting to speed up and we took 2:40 off our time. This was followed by a nice tea. I am very thankful for this as every day that starts with a run seems to be a good day!

Family:

I am thankful for all of my family and the fact that we all get along. I couldn’t visit my parents this weekend, but I did get to watch my nephew’s football game (in the downpour) and join my brother, SIL and nephew for a wonderful turkey dinner. I love being part of a family!

My nephew #69 got his first touchdown today!

Knitting:

I am thankful that I have a hobby that allows me to be productive and also to create items I can wear. I am finally making progress on my test knit, though I think I am going to have to block this cardigan to within an inch of its life to get it to fit me! I love the pattern though so maybe I’ll just make it again.

Errands:

I am thankful for being organized and able to self-motivate. Even though tomorrow is a day off, I got my usual grocery shopping and meal prep done. I am thankful I enjoy my time in the kitchen as this would be a horrible chore otherwise. I did reward myself with a nap though 🤣

Well I think I’m going to curl up in bed with my book.

Have fun and don’t forget to be thankful!

  1. Oh AJ!! I love how much you write about loving your family!! My kids moved so far away. I wish they felt the same. Maybe someday. They love us, no doubt. But, Al is 12 hours away by car, and Zach you know sin Mexico. Im happy for their adventures, but I want Sunday dinners……I am going to talk to a counselor later in the month. Too many tears

    1. Oh I’m sorry you don’t get to see them more. For some reason I thought Al was closer:(
      My family is definitely the most important thing to me. I am actually trying to start on a picture collage wall in my living room so that I will have them with me all the time!
