I intended to do a once or twice a week post with the daily Q’s since moving my daily journaling to hand written journals, but with summer my schedule seemingly bursting at the seams, sitting down at the computer for blogging is a challenge these days.
As well, we no longer have cable so my son is spending a lot of time outside. This is awesome, kids should be outside, but it also means that I am right there with him. So while it’s wonderful, I don’t end up getting a lot of things done inside the house that need to get done (like daily chores) or other things I would like to get done (like blogging) several days during the week.
😛 I could have worse problems!

Day 70 ~ January 16th, 2018
Today’s Calendar Word: otiose ~ lazy; slothful
Today’s Calendar Quote: “Virtue is more to man than either water or fire. I have seen men die from treading on water and fire, but I have never seen a man die from treading the course of virtue.” — Confucius
I finally started playing Assassin’s Creed Origins this afternoon and it is so FUN!! I only had a few hours maximum of playing time today, but I’ll be able to play a whole bunch tomorrow. Looking forward to it!

Day 61 ~ January 7th, 2018
I think sometime this week I’m going to be heading to a beginner’s class for pole dancing with a friend of mine! I don’t have all the details yet, but I’m looking forward to it and it’s on my bucket list (#50). Plus, I’m stoked to be doing this with a friend so we can have fun and be newbies together haha

Day 30 ~ 54 micro expansions/3 sets
Super Saiyan Challenge
Day 30 ~ 350 sit-ups (100/100/100/50) + 800 squats (200 split/150 basic/100 shrimp/150 sumo/50 jump/100 plie/50 pistol) — I liked doing the crazy amount of push-ups and squats for this challenge, but the high sit-up reps became the part I didn’t like much at all.
With this day it finishes up #66 on my Bucketlist as well 😀
Day 21 ~ Game with the best story
Knights of the Old Republic, Halo, Fable, and Legend of Zelda
Day 22 ~ A game sequel that disappointed you
Lego Indiana Jones 2 — I actually ended up returning it. Something I’ve never done for a video game before or since!
Days 23 to 30
Alright so this happened on Sunday (September 4th)! I ran the Kelowna Wine Country Half Marathon and it was the longest distance in either official race, or just a personal run, that I have ever done. I thought the race photos might be out a little sooner, but it’ll be a few more days so I’ll post them when I have them 😀
Race start time was at 7AM and I was up just before 5AM to start a small warm-up before I even left the house and get a pre-workout into me too. It’s quite cold in the mornings already here, which is a little abnormal actually. I was very thankful that I coordinated what I was wearing perfectly for this run despite being so sleepy. And I was beyond thankful that it didn’t actually end up raining like the forecast said it was because that would have really sucked!
