Something About Fire

Adele vs. Daft Punk - Something About The Fire

I like Adele, I love Daft Punk, so I decided, why not take a listen?  I liked the mashup so much, I thought I’d share it with all of you!  Not so much a running song, but definitely a good one for the cool down!  ;)

Running

I confess to several moments of extreme guilt yesterday. My guy & I went to the Kiwanis Club annual Pancake Breakfast at the rec center & the table next to us was full of ladies that are training for next weekend’s half marathon. They had run 8 miles that morning before their pancake breakfast. At least we DID walk there & back!  :D  The rec center is a mile & a half from my house, so we walked 3 miles for our pancakes – that’s better than driving, right??  ROFL

Reading

I haven’t talked a whole bunch about my total love affair with my Kindle Fire, but rest assured, I am totally in love with it.  :D  If I’m not reading on it, then I’m watching videos (lately, as you know, I’ve been making my way back through all of Star Trek, TOS – I’m midway through season 2 now) or surfing the web. I absolutely LOVE my Fire, it goes with me almost everywhere.  :D

  • Wool by Hugh Howey – actually a short story in a series of 5 stories, this is the first of the collection. It is a quick read that will grab you right away & keep you in sucked into the story until the very end. It is a tale of a frightening, sad dystopian future in which mankind has been forced to live underground to survive. Science fiction at its finest, with short bites of the whole story told from different views. This piece is the story of the Sheriff (and his wife). You can either buy the short stories individually or all 5 in an omnibus here.  :)  Whichever way you decide, I definitely recommend you give it a go based on my read of the first story – it’s fantastic!

Knitting

I finished the manlet’s Socky Slouchy Hat – I just have the blocking picture for it. The yellow & red yarns are Knit Picks Palette & the green is Cascade 220 Fingering.  :)

I’m back to knitting a little something for my niece-to-be, Lily.  :)  It doesn’t look like much in the picture right now, but I’m really hoping it turns out to be super cute. The pattern has long been one of my favorites.  You can get the pattern online by joining the Ashford Club (the cost is only $7 USD a year – SO worth it!).  :)

Pattern: Cache Coeur for Baby

Yarn: Knit Picks Stroll, Cupcake Multi

Needles: Size 3 straights (the pattern calls for 2.5, but I haven’t got them!)
