It was a quiet weekend, but everyone is supposed to be having those right now with these restrictions, so it didn’t bother me.
I started the day with trying to get my Garmin connected to my phone and was almost in tears, before it connected up. I’ve been a happy camper since though:)
I decided that since my watch would record now, I’d go for a long run since I didn’t know what was happening for my usual Sunday run- it looked like it would just be a walk. I did 10km out on the dyke in gorgeous sunshine. I had a great time going out, but took too many walk breaks coming back:(. Of course, I got back to a message that Sarah wanted to run on Sunday.
I decided to do my errands so I wouldn’t have to go out on Sunday. I tried to go buy ribbing, but the line up to get into the store was just too long. I checked out the dollar store for indoor Christmas lights but they didn’t have any. I did manage to pick up a few groceries so that at least got done.
I spent the rest of the day having a nap, watching Christmas movies and reading Pippi Longstocking for work.
I got my butt out of bed and hit a different dyke with Sarah this morning. We managed 6km and that was enough for me! Since last week, I’ve intermittently had a sharp pain in the bottom of my foot. It bugged me twice yesterday and was again this morning. It is definitely worse when I’m on concrete. It turned out I had a sliver and Brenda tried to dig it out for me while Dennis held my foot still. We must have made quite the picture outside Starbucks this morning.
I came home to a very cold condo as my gas fireplace had gone out. I texted my cousin, but he couldn’t come so he gave me instructions on how to relight it and I actually managed to do it. I felt quite proud of myself as I am seriously unhandy!
I had a lovely long nap and then finished Pippi Longstocking. Now I know why I never read this book as a kid- it is seriously weird! It is safe for the kids to read though. I have one more book I have to read this week for Bookclub.
I have also spent some time knitting, but have just torn the toque out again. I could get so much more knitted if I didn’t tear everything out so many times!
Well I guess I’ll go try to start the toque again, maybe sixth time is the charm.
