It was a very quiet day, but I was okay with that as I know this week is going to be crazy!
I got up this morning and went directly out for my run. I did just under 6km and was happy to see that my average pace still stayed below 7min/km even with the longer distance. It sure didn’t feel that way! It was nice it wasn’t raining, but I felt like I was plodding along.
This evening I went out again for a short run to the park and back just to finish off the Squad Runner mission. I swear it started pouring the moment I stepped outside! I only saw four people out which is quite remarkable for my town! Amazingly, I was slower this evening than I was this morning. I definitely thought it would be the reverse!
I really didn’t want to do anything today, but I did get my dishes done, laundry done and sheets changed. I am so looking forward to crawling into bed as I don’t think there’s many things better than clean sheets!
I finished the kids Bookclub book called Short. It was by Holly Goldberg Sloan who has written some other kids books that I loved. This book is about a short girl who is chosen to be a munchkin in the community theatre play one summer. She doesn’t want to at first, but finds herself becoming enmeshed in the theatre and learns a lot about herself. With being short myself, I found it interesting and an easy read, but it also felt at times like the author was trying too hard to teach lessons.
So I did my dishes and had a lovely clean kitchen, then of course I wanted to play in the clean kitchen so I made scones and suddenly I have a messy kitchen again. It’s just a vicious cycle!
I made another batch of Sally’s Baking Addiction master scone recipe, however, this time I made lemon blueberry ones. I even put the lemon drizzle on top, which I normally wouldn’t. The scones taste great but they are almost too light. I expect a scone to be dense, but I’m wondering if they’re light just because I made twice as many as he recipe called for. I may have to try big ones and maybe they would be denser. I loved the recipe again and it went faster for me this time:)
I’m loving the Cup 4 cup flour I’ve used for both sets of scones and the Melt vegan butter spread. Both have been producing great results. I may have to try cinnamon buns with them!
I finished one of my socks today and have gotten up to the gusset decreases on the second one. I’m hoping to finish this pair tomorrow as I have to get moving on something for a two year old boy. I have sirdar snuggly yarn I’m going to use in a pale blue. If anyone has any suggestions, I would love to hear them!
I spent the rest of the time working on my mom’s present. She tells me they may be coming a day later than planned. That may be a good thing🤣
