Happy Friday everyone! Today my kids have an extra long weekend off of school for the Canadian Thanksgiving weekend. Our Thanksgiving is on Monday, so they have that day off too. Why our Thanksgiving is 6 weeks before the U.S. one is beyond me. Though I’m not going to complain because I rather like it – it gives me a good chance of working off all of the Thanksgiving overeating before the Christmas overeating begins (just being honest). Anyways, because the kids are off I took a vacation day from work to spend with them.
No work today!
Which brings me to the topic of today’s post:
Things I Do When I’m Not Running, Working or Blogging
I thought it would be fun today to give you a deeper glimpse into my life. I write a lot about my running and I don’t share much else. Last week’s post “50 Questions You Didn’t Think to Ask Me” was so fun that I thought I’d carry that on this week, who knows, maybe I’ll make “Fun Friday” a frequent feature?
I Binge Watch NetFlix
As I mentioned last week my favourite shows are: The Big C, Orange is the New Black, Mad Men, Pretty Little Liars, and Breaking Bad. I also heard that Walking Dead is pretty good so perhaps that will be my next guilty pleasure?
I Play Boardgames with the Kids
Lately our favourite game is Monopoly Jr. – why does the banker always win?!?
Hubby plays Thursday nights and coaches Brooke’s team, and Brooke and Sierra are playing on two separate teams this year. Little Amber will start skating lessons in January.
I Chill Out with My Friends
We get together almost every weekend for a dinner. Next summer Laura is getting married and Juliette, Julie, Christine and I are all Laura’s bridesmaids. This means there will be lots more “planning” meetings and chilling out. Next week we get to go Bridesmaid dress shopping!
Speaking about Shopping…. I Go Shopping
I Teach Myself CSS, PHP & HTML
I’ve been having fun trying to figure out how to make my themes mobile responsive, how to add a ton of widget areas like a widget area in a fixed navigation bar for social icons, and giving them lots options like multiple color schemes, custom headers and backgrounds. I’ve been working on these themes off and on for six months and they are both now getting close to being ready for me to start selling.
I honestly don’t know how I have time for everything, but somehow I manage!
Question/Sharing: What are some of your hobbies?
