Bye Bye

Well even though I got more days than I expected, I still don’t like it when my mom goes home and I have to become an adult again:(


I had arranged to meet up with my Sunday morning running group for a New Years Day run. It ended up just being Dennis, Sarah and I, but we got 5.27km done. We got to take a new trail at Colony Farm and it was a lovely path, though it will be even nicer when we can do a loop instead of having to backtrack.

I also got a Hallmark Christmas movie workout done this evening. I did a minute of high knees between these exercises: reverse lunges, crunches, squats. Plié squats, pushups, burpees, dips, curtsy lunges, jacks and high knees.


Most of the day was super quiet and relaxing. I finished my first book of the year which I heard about on the Not Your Mom’s Bookclub podcast. It’s called Edenbrooke by Julianne Donaldson. It was a sweet historical romance and I really enjoyed it. It had a touch of mystery to it and the emotions were written so well that the reader feels them too. A great first read for the year:)


I spent most of last night and today knitting a Barley hat out of Mohair, but when I went to visit my mom tonight to say goodbye I tried it on her head. My mom has the biggest head of anyone I know and it was too big for her so I ended up frogging it and I am just knitting a simple garter stitch scarf with this cool Mohair.


Relentless Knitting had a new podcast out so I listened to it as I knitted today and really enjoyed their merriment and hearing how their lives have been going.


Tonight I watched Holiday Date. It was super cute! It was the familiar trope of a fake relationship but was well done. I really loved the dad’s character. He was so into Christmas and yet really gruff with the men in his daughter’s lives 🤣

Well the first day is the year is done:)

Have fun!
