so, in my last blog post, i told you about wonderful wednesday. well, yesterday turned out to be spectacular saturday!
it’s really funny how things work out as they are meant to be. originally, i had booked yesterday off from the store because i was planning to spend the day in toronto, and then participate in a fun event in the eve. well, as this past week went on, i kept getting the vibe that i should deviate from my intended itinerary – so i did! and i could not have asked for a more joyous saturday than yesterday!
to start, i finished off my latest knitting project at the ripe hour of 6:18 a.m.:
then, i went for a run. i tried a new route. i g-map‘d a neat-o course, then sharpied the directions onto my hand:actually, garmins truly are great training tools, it’s just that tracking distance/time/pace is not my approach, and after 22 years of running, i can tell when i am going slow/steady/fast. [sidenote: windex takes sharpie-marker off of skin very well].
i had barely started off when my running friend val and her husband caught up to me – so fun to wish each other good running, and that cheery chance meet-up set the tone to my outing.
here is a post-finish photo:
oh – and could the weather yesterday have been any more gorgeous?
the only thing is that an autumn feel is most definitely in the air….
next, i went in to play at the store for three hours. like i said, i was supposed to be off, but since we were a bit short-staffed and i wasn’t going anywhere anyway, it was just fine with me to spend some time working with manager paul and being social.
there is the cutest new coffee shop right across from the store: café 22. the proprietor, asha, used to work at the nougat bakery in kitchener, and now has opened her own establishment:
i encourage you to pay café 22 a visit if you are in the ‘hood. mom and dad and i had a lovely time!
right next door to the café is o.w. sports, and they happened to have some items out on their sidewalk, marked 50% off:
that’s a lot o’f fun in a day. but wait, there’s more!
in the eve, seagram stadium (a short stroll away) was the site of an invitational tattoo.
ahhh….my type a soul revelled in the precise marching formations, staccato beats, and 4/4 time of the music:
seagram stadium was packed with a huge audience – it was fun to people-watch!
i hope YOU enjoyed a busy + happy saturday, too!
best wishes to the endurrun-ners this morning! they are finishing off their weeklong adventure with a mere…marathon!
