See you later June!
So another month has come & gone, I can’t lie, this month was a little tough on me, but thankfully things are slowly opening up here, so things are feeling a little more normal but yeah, I feel like days are just flying by faster than normal!
So this month we didn’t have to head to ‘P’s rental house as much, we went two Saturdays in a row & we were able to get everything else done & cleaned up! It is so nice to be able to sleep in a little longer on a Saturday instead of being out the door by 6:30 in the morning.
I had another month of decent reading! I got through a few books but nothing like Aprils but honestly just still checking books off my TBR & e-library hold list! I did officially hit 40/50 books so I’m super excited the I’m doing so well on my goal but I guess it really is all thanks to Covid so at least something good came from it. In reading terms I did end up getting a Kobo e-reader, I’ve had this one for almost the whole month & I am so happy with it. Reading is a whole new ball game for me now!
We did have a busy fathers day weekend, we went to his parents on the Saturday, spent the afternoon by the pool & had a huge dinner & a little fire in the backyard. Then on the Sunday, we went to my parents & spent the afternoon by the pool & had dinner with my family. It was so nice to have a family filled relaxing weekend & yes, it was even nicer to see my grandparents in a safe backyard setting with social distancing from them of course.
So, fitness wise, I’m still walking anywhere from 3km- 7km per day. I’m attempting to run once a week, at a slower pace these days, but thats okay but its been hot so honestly my walks & runs literally depend on the weather. I’m also still doing the workouts from Linn Lowes ‘At Home’ program, slowly but surely getting through them! I had a few days where I did nothing but everything was hurting so I gave myself a little break which was also nice, & probably needed.
Home wise, we bought a new mattress which has been amazing & was definitely needed, who would have thought that the mattress was the reason I couldn’t sleep through the night. ‘P’ put his handyman skills to the test & got a bunch of organizers up & together, which was amazing & so needed. Oh & clearly by now I guess I should share. ‘P’ & I have successfully now lived together in my little condo since mid-march, so it’s been three & a half months now of fully living together. I mean it must be pretty obvious after I shared a long overdue condo tour & obviously the den has a Big Smalls & Muhammed Ali photo in there so yeah. It’s obviously had it’s ups & downs thanks to Covid but honestly it’s been really easy at the same time. Finally, we now have a little more of a groove, & things are a whole lot more organized since now that were done at his place we can focus a little energy on the condo. Also, now that were able to go to the cottage on weekends again since all our weekends were focused around fixing & cleaning his place has also helped. But its been great & were totally on the same page about saving money for our future home & future travels so yeah!
