Sad:(

My last day of a lovely holiday:(

Exercise: Just a walk with my mom around the East campsite. It was 45 lovely minutes in the sun:). Had to enjoy every moment with my mom that I can! Even had time to stop for a few pictures:)

I can’t believe how many buildings are painted with murals! I should have taken pictures of some of the others- there was even one of a giraffe on the side of a house!

Knitting:

I got a dishcloth made for my mom today. It was small, but was a new pattern for me and went quite quickly. It was a six row repeat that was easy to remember:). The pattern is Here. I did the 41 stitch option and think it turned out pretty cute:)

It was even better that I got this posted for the Herbology class in HPKCHC:)

I also did some planning for my year in temperatures scarf that I am doing this year. I knew I wanted to do this while I was with my mom as she often thinks of things I don’t. I have a plan now and can’t wait to get home to start on it. It’s going to be neat seeing that my scarf is different from my knitting buddy’s because of the time I spent down here:)

Reading:

I got a few more chapters of Glazed Murder done. I think this book will be what I entertain myself with tomorrow for the six hours I’ll be hanging around for:)

Baking:

I made some chocolate chip cookies for my parents today to try and make up for the sticky buns of yesterday. I found the recipe on WordPress at This site:). The cookies turned out fine but they still spread more than I wanted them to. It will be nice to have all my tools and a familiar oven. Using the convection oven/ microwave has been nice in that you set the timer and the oven goes off when that time is reached.

Laundry:

It will be the first time that I will go home from a holiday with no laundry🤣I love my parent’s washer and dryer! It is way better than mine at home and I may just need to look into getting one:). I knew I should have traded my parents my condo for their 5th Wheel!🤣

Socializing:

I went to happy hour with my parents this evening since it was my last night here. The people here are so sweet! There is one couple who got engaged after only knowing each other for three days and they are still together 59 years later! Another gentleman came by after to wish my a safe trip and to say he hopes he sees me again next year! What lovely people!

Movies:

I watched another Hallmark movie today- had to get it in while I could on a big screen! Anything For Love managed to be the cheesiest movie I’ve seen yet! 😂 I also watched Secondhand Lions tonight. What an excellent movie!!! Michael Caine and Robert Duval were amazing!!! I’d recommend this movie to anyone!

Well I’m off to bed at an incredibly early hour as I have to be leaving at 5am my dad said. I’ll be early but I’d just read wherever I am and it’s better if my dad is out of the city before traffic gets bad!!!!

Have fun!
