A pretty good day…
I tackled the hill this morning. I needed a day off from my regular route so I decided to attack the hill that I live at the bottom of. I couldn’t run the whole thing as it’s quite steep, so I used the lampposts as markers and ran one section, walked a section until I was about 2/3 of the way up when I could just run as it flattens out a bit. It took me thirteen minutes to get up the hill and I figure it’s a good goal to work towards being able to run the whole hill continuously. A picture on the way down the hill:)
I also like that it will help towards my Crunch challenge:) I’ll have to remember to assess how I’ve done at this goal at the end of October. It was a nice route as well as, even with the traffic, it seemed more peaceful than my usual route.

I even got a workout in tonight too( though I was tempted to skip it). I did workout three which was six sets of four exercises, 45 seconds on-15 seconds off. I had to do single leg squats, cross country skiers, wood hops, squats, squat with shoulder press, oblique crunches, frog crunches, fire hydrants, leg lifts, squats with leg lifts, skiers, and one other thing that I can’t remember for the life of me. I was sweating like a pig when I was done, a feeling I now love:)
Day two of no crying until after lunch. It really does make the morning lovely! I ran the assembly and survived:) we only had one mess up, not bad! The rest of the day was pretty routine, except for running around like a headless chicken on my half hour prep because my to-do list keeps expanding!!
My parents were at the Festival of the Grape in Oliver, BC last weekend brought me home some vegan cheese. Four different kinds!!! 👅 Tonight I decided to crack one open and try it. All of the cheeses are from Black Sheep Vegan Cheese which you can check out on Facebook here:
The cheese is made in Armstrong and I always love to support local, small companies.
I decided to try the pizza cheese tonight as it just sounded too good to ignore. I loved how it came wrapped in paper. I’ve always been a sucker for old fashioned and this put me in mind of how cheese would have come in the past. Simple, easy to open packaging was awesome!
The cheese had no awful aroma that sometimes comes with vegan cheese. When I smelled it, I only smelled the herbs that were in the cheese. It does have a rubbery consistency, but that’s pretty normal for vegan cheese so it didn’t put me off!
The taste was awesome! It tasted just like pizza! So much so that I was surprised it wasn’t red! I was able to eat it as cheese and crackers which is a great thing for vegan cheese! This is actually only the second vegan cheese I have found that I could do that with. Predominantly I tasted oregano, but there were other lighter herb tastes too.
I would definitely recommend this Cheese to anyone who is looking for a dairy free cheese!
And it might just get worn tomorrow:)
I ripped out my Canucks toque this morning and started on one a size larger. I’m back to where the decreases have to begin, but that will have to wait until tomorrow.
I had the chance tosuit my cami for detention on the Harry Potter: Knit and crochet house cup group I joined on Ravelry. I just hope I did it right! I also had the chance to check out the October classes and I think I have three projects in mind that will count. Now I just have to get them done before October 31st!
Today my principal told me I did a good job on running the assembly and a parent told me after school that I looked good today- my outfit and hair ( I was really pleased with my outfit today!). It didn’t take either of these women more than a minute to compliment me and yet they made my day! I smile even as I write this! It put me in mind of what I’m always talking to my students about- one little positive action starts a chain reaction and everything is positively affected! What a lovely world it makes to live in:) I read a book recently that said “to be the sunshine, not the rain”, what a great way of putting it! Rain is necessary to make us appreciate the sunshine, but I’d definitely rather be someone’s sunshine or rainbow than thundercloud!
I hope you all have had a good day too!
