Quiet and Bookclub

It was a pretty quiet day but still nice as I had my mom for company.

Exercise:

I met up with the group for a run this morning and ended up doing circles around Brenda as otherwise she would have been on her own. I still got 4.5km in and had a nice visit. I’m happy it was a bit more as that gives me a little cushion this week.

Shopping:

I stopped on the way home at Costco and couldn’t believe how busy it was already when it had only been open for a few minutes! I guess it’s never quiet. I grabbed a new planner as it was driving me nuts to not have one!

Knitting:

Still just doing stockinette in the round on the Not a Boring Sweater.

Baking:

I had Bookclub tonight and plums were mentioned in the book we read so I did a plum upside down cake. It turned out tasty but not pretty as the batter went below the plums so they ended up being in the middle:(

Reading:

This morning I finished the book for Bookclub. It was How to Stop Time by Matt Haig. I really enjoyed this book as it’s about a group of people who don’t age as quickly as others and so end up living hundreds of years. I guess the history geek in me liked all the historical aspects and I liked the premise of being able to see what happens to the world over a long period of time. A lot of the women in Bookclub didn’t love it as they wanted more action or felt that he was a whiny main character. I would recommend it if you like history:)

Bookclub:

Bookclub was fun as always and really great to see everyone as I think I missed the last one. I’m glad it didn’t go late though as I was tired driving there and home!

It’s always a feast at Bookclub!

Well I have ten minutes to knit another row before bed.

Have fun!
