It seems like my holiday went fast and tomorrow it is back to reality. No more lounging in the my fuzzy robe with a cup of tea and my knitting in the morning😥. Tomorrow I will have to hit the ground running! That’s why this will be quick as I have the feeling I’m going to need extra sleep tonight!

Exercise:

I ran 8km on Sunday with Dennis and we got lucky and it wasn’t horribly wet for a change:)

I have also kept up and done my FitOn App workout each day. I wasn’t happy with the Strong Legs one on Saturday as it left my legs tired for my Sunday run, but oh well. It would be nice if they gave you seven and let you put them in the order you want! I can’t wait until I have my high speed data back tomorrow so that the workouts will be short and won’t lag!

Reading:

I have been reading, but nothing that I need to tell you about. I’ll let you know when I hit a really good one.

Socializing:

Yesterday I was napping on my couch when my friend Lyndsay texted to ask if I wanted to go for a walk to the park with her, her son and her dog. It was a lovely afternoon! We got some food from a food truck and then sat in the sun and watched her son at the skate park. I love little outings like this!

House:

I have gotten all of my laundry done and my coffee table tidied, but I’m sad to say, not much else has been done:(. I’m definitely a failure at house cleaning. I got the accessories changed to my summer colour scheme, but I really should have been cleaning instead. I just feel like every where I look needs to be cleaned, but as soon as I clean it, it has to be done again😥

Baking:

I made pancake muffins the other day and they were super delicious. I like them because it feels like you are having a muffin and yet there is very little sugar in them:)

Today I made baked strawberry coconut oatmeal for my breakfasts this week, Tex Mex salad for lunches and ham and peas pasta for dinner. I liked the process I did this week. Usually I spend a few hours in the kitchen making all the food, but today, I just made the dish for my meal and then packaged up the rest for lunches, breakfasts and dinners.

Knitting:

I wanted to show you where all my time had been going. I finished the crochet blanket I was making to just use up yarn.

I also finished my Paris Socks by the Knitting Expat. This yarn is made out of Lady Dye Yarna in 75% SW Merino and 25% Nylon. I had bought it for the Anne of Green Gables KAL with Casapinka, but the colours of yarn just didn’t work for a shawl for me, but I love the main colour for these socks. This pattern was odd because I followed the instructions exactly and yet my pattern looks different than the pattern picture. I am thinking it had to be changed to fit the smaller stitch count. It’s fine with me though as I still like what it looks like.

I have also finished my Bentley Sweater bands and just have the sleeves to do. I managed to join the zoom call for that KAL tonight and it was neat to see what other sweaters looked like.

I have also started my SPY21 socks for this month which are the Meta socks out of the book, Operation Sock Drawer. I am hoping they will use up some little skeins for me.

Well I’m off to bed, have fun!

  1. Here’s to a great first day back with your kiddos! The blanket looks great, it would be a lovely baby gift if you don’t plan to keep it. We sure enjoyed the nice weather these past few days. Cold and rain/snow on the forecast for the next couple of days, but I don’t think it will go below 33, so more rain than snow I think!

    1. Yes my plan was for it to be a baby buggy cover or car seat blankie. I’m glad you’ve had some nice weather. We have too:)

    1. Yes I love those light blue socks. I my try the shawl in other colours as everyone raves about casapinka shawls and I’ve never done one, but i just couldn’t bring myself to do it in that yarn.
