Just The Usual

It was just a day of usual items and getting things done.

Exercise:

After quickly tidying my house, I got out for a run that felt significantly better than the past couple of days. I got 4.85km done and only stopped because my runkeeper paused the session without my permission. I only had about 100meters left so it seemed like as good a time as any to stop.

This evening I got out for another run along the River with Dennis because I can’t resist saying yes when it means I can have company on a run. We got exactly 5km in and had a decent pace except for the walk at both river crossings. I definitely wasn’t upset about them though! Dennis is a great running partner as he stayed with me the whole way even though he can go way faster!

Knitting:

Tavia came for her knitting lesson this morning and she learned how to decrease. She’s doing a great job and her dishcloth looks fabulous. She also has a plan for a cape for her cheetah stuffie🤣😀

I have spent lots of time knitting today and am down to just 8 rows of the yoke to do! Maybe I can be done tonight!

Reading:

I finished A Gingerbread Romance by Lacey Baker.

The story of Adam, a baker who is stuck doing basic cookies and donuts and Taylor, an architect longing for home. These two team up to create a life-sized gingerbread house for a city competition. Through the process they find more than the right recipe for gingerbread.

This story was very sweet and realistic. I enjoyed how the plot and pace were both realistic and it would make a great introduction to the Christmas season. I loved hearing of all the Christmas traditions and should have made a list of them all for myself.

The characters were interesting, and while there was a lot of internal dialogue, there was also a lot of growth and self-learning.

If you enjoy the traditions of Christmas this would be a great read for you.

Thanks to the author, publisher and NetGalley for the free ARC in exchange for an honest opinion.

Well I need to get back to knitting.

Have fun!
