Lest We Forget

It was a very odd Remembrance Day for me.

Exercise:

I decided that since I had the day off I would put it to good use getting some extra mileage in. I did 10km with Sarah this morning out on the dyke. Thank goodness our new restrictions still allow me to run with other people!

I am hoping to get some yoga done before bed tonight too.

Shopping:

I stopped on my way home to get the yarn I need for the three knitting projects that I owe to other people. Thankfully the store was very quiet and I didn’t meet anyone!

I also stopped at the grocery store and got two advent calendar gifts and some protein for the next couple of days. I really didn’t want to have to go out again but I hit three different grocery stores today:(

Knitting:

After a lovely nap in front of the fireplace I have spent the day working on the socks for a lady at trivia. These are due first so I thought I’d start with them. The pattern is going quickly, but I really hate the first time I make an item for someone as you never really know if it’s going to fit and be comfy!

Reading:

I also finished the book I have been working on for a while. It is called Fatal Inheritence by Rachel Rhys. It tells the story of an English woman in 1948 who inherits 1/4 of an estate from a man she does not know. It was really good and I didn’t figure out the mystery until it told me at the end. I would recommend it to anyone who likes cosy mysteries or that time era.

Remembrance Day:

It has been a very odd Remembrance Day for me. This day is really big in my family- usually bigger than any other holiday. We all get together and I have never missed a Remembrance Day ceremony. I was even there when my mom was pregnant with me. It made today feel weird and lonely. I did take the time at 11am for a minute of silence and thought of all the things I am thankful for having in my life. I just hope never to have such a quiet Remembrance Day again!

My dad’s newest project. He created his own ceremony by playing the last post and Reveille and having a moment of silence. All of the neighbours stood at the end of their driveways.

Have fun!
