Well it rained for about thirty seconds last night:( It’s looked like it could rain most of the day so let’s hope it does tonight!
I started the day with my usual 3km run to the park and back. I know it’s not long, but mentally it gets me out the door. Today I decided that I should see how fast I could go. I was about a minute and a half faster than my usual time, but I know I can do it even faster! I may make this a weekly challenge as I think it would be a good indicator of my running improvement.
I came home and immediately did the NourishMoveLove workout which was a quick abs workout. I had every intention of doing the workout twice, but then I got distracted.
Around the house I got my towels changed and washed. Knitty Natty calls it Fresh Towels Friday and I liked that. I see she has a YouTube episode about a cleaning schedule so I may watch that as I’m always looking for pointers. I also got my Christmas lights taken out of the window and put away and the recycling taken out. I’m going to call that a success for doing at least one thing around the house so far. Is two days in a row long enough to call the plan a success??
I packed up my sewing machine and took it over to the local sewing store as they have an agreement with a guy who will pick it up and service it. I have been trying to do this since Spring as my machine won’t go into zigzag but my timing is always off. Today I decided just to take it and it can wait over there as it’s not like I can use it anyways. Of course, now all I want to do is sew!!!!
After a quick ice cream stop
I have learned to just stop and eat an ice cream and not bring a container of it into my house!
I spent most of the day knitting and actually accomplished a pair of socks! I had gotten my latest Knitting Expat Tokyo sock pattern on the fourth but couldn’t start them until today. They just seemed to go very fast, even faster than normal. I really love Knitting Expat sock patterns and would recommend them to anyone and everyone. These socks were done in some leftover Sweet Georgia tough Love Sock yarn in beige. It’s a beautiful yarn, but I still have some leftover. Sometimes I wish for bigger feet so I wouldn’t have leftovers!
Sorry for the bad photo- it’s dark here.
And since I promised, here is my most recently finished sweater- the Rock It Tee by Tanis Fibre Arts.
I had been a little worried when I saw the yarn caked up because it was extremely bright, but it’s actually not even as bright as it looks in the picture. The yarn is a merino fingering and a silk mohair that are died identically. You simply alternate between the two. I don’t know why this sweater took me so long as it was very simple. I am glad I did it though!
This evening I did my yoga and rolling. I definitely noticed this morning the fact that I hadn’t done yoga and rolling last night. I guess this is one habit I’ll have to try my best to keep up. I actually ended up with my yoga and rolling being almost as long as my run🤣
Well I’m off to bed as I have an early run in the morning.
