It was a nice, relaxing weekend:)

Exercise:

I ran both mornings. On Saturday, Dennis and I did an 8km run out on the dukes. It was a tough run for me as I was sore from my workout on Thursday. My legs were incredibly stiff and sore! The highlight of the run was seeing three eagles- two were fighting in the air and one was eating on shore. It was awesome to see!

This morning I did another 8km with Sarah along a different dyke. This run felt much better, but that may be due to the slower pace.

We got lucky both days with gorgeous weather!

This afternoon I re-did the workout I did Thursday- NourishMoveLove’s 30 minute full body circuit workout. I figure I had better redo it until it no longer hurts.

Knitting:

I spent a lot of the weekend knitting. It was lovely and relaxing and quite productive. I finished the toque for my secretary’s daughter.

This is the Antler Toque from TinCanKnits. I love their patterns- easy to follow and I like how the pattern includes all the sizes. I used the Loops and Threads Impeccable yarn in black so that it is teenager friendly and washable.

Today, I finished a toque for Lyndsay. I used the Mother-Daughter toque pattern from Zanete Knits. I have made this pattern before with Regia sock yarn and Lyndsay liked it. I couldn’t find Regia sock yarn, so I used Patons Kroy sock yarn. I did the pattern exactly the same, but unfortunately it came out much thicker and smaller. This is definitely more of a beanie. I will take both the original and the new one to school tomorrow and Lyndsay can choose.

Reading:

I love the Heartbreak Bay series from Jill Shalvis and have been reading Wrapped Up In You. I usually gobble up Jill Shalvis, but I’m having a tougher time with this. It’s not the writing- it’s the fact that there is tension and a bad guy. I just find I can’t read anything right now that isn’t super fluffy and happy.

Socializing:

I met up with Lyndsay this morning at the farmer’s market. This is definitely a good social event for right now- outside, not too crowded and mask friendly. We looked around and I tried a pork bun and a cranberry cookie that were both wonderful!

Lyndsay had said a few weeks ago that I had plans for next weekend, and she finally explained today. She had planned that her, another friend and I would go downtown to the spa, go out for dinner, spend the night at a hotel and then go for a run on the seawall in the morning, followed by brunch and shopping. Unfortunately our latest restrictions put this plan out of order, so she has simplified it.

Lyndsay will go for a run with me next Saturday, followed by brunch and then later in the day, I will be picked up for a local adventure.

I can’t believe what sweet friends I have! It means so much that they made plans for us! Now I have to come up with where to run!!!

Well, other than that I have put up lights in my bedroom, and did laundry. Lol not very exciting.

Have fun!

  1. Your hats are lovely and well done on good strong running. I have seen a good few of your posts but got so behind I didn’t comment, but it’s always lovely to get this view into someone else’s life. We’re changing restrictions this week so I can hopefully run with more than one other person again – that’s been OK and better than everything being alone but has been hard to coordinate!

    1. Oh that will be nice for you to have a new running buddy!
      My posts are like a diary as I write them so that my mom know what’s happened in my day.
