A pretty quiet day of recovering. I’ve had enough of saying I’m sick so by tomorrow’s post I had better feel more myself!
I got a short run in this morning along a local trail. I did loops around my running buddies who were walking because they were sick. I probably should have taken my cue from them, but I was going slow!
This was my only exercise as I spent the rest of the day on the couch.
I’m calling this section socializing rather than eating because I haven’t managed to eat anything but ginger ale and one tea today:(
We tried a new coffee place after our run called Creekside Coffee Factory. I don’t drink coffee, but their coconut chai tea by Mighty Leaf was lovely. What I liked best about this coffee shop was how quiet it was! You could actually speak in a regular voice! You didn’t have to yell to be heard. It drives me crazy how loud coffeeshops and restaurants seem to be. I’m sure this makes me seem old, but I’m usually out with friends and it would be nice if I could actually converse with them. The inside of the coffee shop was very nice and invitingly decorated too.
I had book club tonight which is one of my favourite events so I had to go. I usually love it because it also gives me the chance to cook something g new because our food is always based on the theme of the book. Unfortunately, I couldn’t even stomach the thought of cooking today so I just took chips and salsa. When I was sitting at book club not eating any of the goodies laid out before me, I came to the conclusion that I’m sick:(
I had some of the chips and some more ginger ale. I was hoping they would work like saltines but they didn’t.
I always love to meet up with the girls and hear about what’s happening. It was a small group this time and only two of us had finished the book, so it turned more into just catching up. We both had a hard time getting into the book, but ended up loving it!
I didn’t have much to say as the girls were discussing shows they watch on Netflix. Some of them sounded very interesting, not, more like I could lose brain cells watching them! (Of course some people would say that about the hallmark movies I watch on occasion too). Lol it reminded me that I’ve never been a big tv watcher. I was always reading a book as a kid and now I actually manage to exist without cable or Netflix. The only time it somewhat bugs me is when people have conversations that I can’t contribute to, lol. I think I can live with that though!
I’m working on the next Sarah Morgan book in the series, New York Actually, but haven’t finished it yet so I’ll keep my mouth shut for now:)
I loved some purple wool I found in my coffee table basket but knew it would be too scratchy to wear against my skin, so I’m making a pair of handwarmers out of it. I think it will be perfect and super warm for that! I haven’t finished this yet either.
Well, I’m going to go collapse on the couch with my book and knitting and try not to think about my stomach! Maybe this would be one time it would be good if I had mindless tv to watch, but I’ll rely on a mindless trashy romance book instead:)
