It’s amazing how much you can get done when you only have so much time!
I got up this morning earlier than I have been to get out for my run while it was still cool. My run was still slow and I realized my legs were hurting from my workout on Sunday, but at least I ran the whole 3.86km. That was it for me for exercise today as it was massage day.
I am working on a basketweave mini blanket and am loving how it’s looking. I made it up so casted in 200 stitches, have four border stitches on each side and using four stitches per pattern element. I just hope I have enough yarn to make it big enough not to look weird!
Podcast/ Reading/ Listening:
I listened to my very first podcast this morning as I was knitting. It was the Marathon Training Academy and I really enjoyed it!
I also have been reading an ARC and listening to Portrait of a Lady in LibriVox. I highly recommend this book so far- it’s been keeping my interest really well!
With going away, I’m trying to get all my food dealt with. I made another batch of raspberry jam today. That will be my last of raspberry jam for this year. I got 15 jars though so I should have enough for the year and some gifting.
I also canned some pickled tomatoes. They were really easy and I had all of the ingredients. I just didn’t want my tomatoes to go bad. I realized afterwards I should have made Greek Salad and taken it with me!
This afternoon was taken up with a massage, a nap and packing (which I hate doing). Thankfully me reward is trivia.
It was just Jacqueline and I at trivia tonight. Out of 71 questions, I knew:
The child actor in Different Strokes?
Who was the director of toys in James Bond?
Where was Melrose Place set?
What prescription drug was tested on dogs?
What was the one word used in donkey kong?
What is equal to 4 quarts?
What country does it border India?
Who played Wolverine?
What is the best selling car in Canada last year?
What is the smallest US state?
Which Canuck had the most penalty points?
What is the most common thing people yell after a knock on the door?
Who is it?
What show has had the most Broadway shows?
Phantom of the Opera
Well I just found out I have to go home and unpack and repack with warmer clothes- looks like it’s going to rain the whole time I’m away. Hopefully I’ll get some WiFi so I can make room for new pictures. (Any suggestions on what kind of pictures I should delete? Food, knitting, scenery, gf/df products- what don’t you guys care about?)
