So, my oldest became interested in the Percy Jackson series since both my youngest & myself told him it was a really good series to read. Unfortunately, the youngest had loaned out his copy of ‘The Lightening Thief’ to a friend… so we ran over to Barnes & Noble to pickup another copy (the other one is pretty beat up anyway). $80 later, we came out… one book for me (the latest Gena Showalter, an excellent writer), 3 books for the oldest and 6 for the youngest. I had to drag him out of the store, which gave me endless pleasure, actually. That is how it used to be – my kids dragging ME out because they had no interest in reading. Thank You, Rick Riordan!!
Huge progress on Viktor – I need to take photos, I know. I do have to rip back some, as I didn’t start the gusset work soon enough, so the heel flap would be far too short for what I need to do, dammit. Ah well, this pattern is one that I’ve ripped back on more times than I can count! In the end, it’s going to be worth it, I think. I really do like how it looks so far, I’m very pleased with it.
Got in a slow 3 miles this morning. Disappointing in that it was slow, but it was good to get 3 done. One of these days, I’m going to avoid the computer in the morning & get myself out the door quicker so I can run longer!! LOL
Heading off to rip that sock… *sniffle, sniffle*
