It was a much more low key day today.
I hung out for the morning and then went for a run around the neighborhood. It was just 3.6km but it felt amazing to be able to be in capris and a tank in December!
I’ve been working my way through Chasing Stanley by Deirdre Martin, but I’m not loving it.
I ran out with my SIL to grab KFC for dinner but then went out after dinner to Nordstrom Rack. I had seen very cute Toms on sale but they didn’t have them there. I did find some of my underwear though so it wasn’t a completely wasted trip.
It was nice to have sunshine and warmth today, but it will also be nice to go home and have all my amenities around me. The Airbnb has been great space, but it isn’t great about having the little things you need.
That’s it for me!
At home this is the biggest shopping day of the year, but down here it felt like just another day.
I spent most of the day reading Yule Be Mine by Lori Foster. This book has four short holiday stories. I appreciated that all of the stories were different enough that it didn’t feel like I was repeating anything. It was an easy holiday read and the short length helped me be part of things with my family.
Thankfully this afternoon my SIL agreed to go for a hike with me. I’m lucky I’ve had my SIL here to do things with! We went and walked part of the Cove to Lake Trail. The trail is very well marked and easy to follow. We saw every type of weather out there though! It was neat to see some local terrain and check out the mountains.
This evening it has just been reading and visiting.
Merry Christmas to everyone!
My sister in law and I went out for a 6.3km run this morning. She sure gets me to run faster than I ever think I can. I did discover that my Garmin sure tells me a lot more than I realized.
Other than a quick trip to the grocery store I have just spent my day reading and visiting with family. We managed to get through the day with just one yelling match- not bad🤣
I hope Christmas has been wonderful for everyone!
