Right now I’m on a modified calendar for school – which means I got a slightly longer winter break than “normal”. It hasn’t all been fun and games for my last week (I tried to get some prep work done) but I still gave myself some time to do a few last vacation things.
Hang out with my pets – once I go back to work I get less time at home, which means less time with the cats and dog. The cats have finally settled down with each other so they fight less and are (almost) friends.
Patches loves going outside, especially in the winter. Even though he is 8 years old now he has lots of energy so we spent lots of time out running and walking.
I don’t plan to stop running once I return to work but I will have to shift back to morning and after work runs and at this time of the year that means running in the dark.
Try some winter activities – another one of my goals was to enjoy winter a bit more by trying more winter activities. This week we went skating twice – once at the rink in Eau Claire and then once at the Bowness Lagoon. Eau Claire had the advantage of being a daytime adventure:
but Bowness Lagoon had a much larger skating surface, and since it was night-time (and snowing) it was empty.
Spend time with this guy: we didn’t get as much time with each other over the holidays as I would have liked so it has been nice to have evenings and mornings to hang out.
