OMG – my order arrived yesterday from Bare Sheep Yarn. Seriously, the pictures just cannot do this yarn justice – it is just gorgeous!! I am so excited, can’t wait to knit with it. The bamboo/merino blend is wonderful! It just might cause me to go against my self imposed rule of only having one WIP at a time. The prices are very reasonable, too – you must go check out her store! Right now – what are you waiting for?! ;)
I decided to give Plurk a go, since I’ve heard so much about it recently. So far, I’m not seeing the attraction, but then again, it’s a little hard when you haven’t got too many friends… so I’m giving it a few more days to see where it goes. Seems like another time drain, I’m thinking! LOL
Making some progress on Whomping Willow. It’s been difficult, as work has gotten in the way a bit. I did get my favorite circs fixed, though they are catching a bit where the tubing is attached. Going back to them has been a joy – I liked the DPNs ok, but I’m really so much faster on the circs & going magic loop! :D
Running – meh, headed out yesterday to discover lightening. Again. *sigh* At least I did manage to still squeeze in 2 miles. Set the alarm early this morning, but I was SO tired when it went off – I went back to bed instead. Even after a couple cups of coffee and a shower I’m still tired. I slept well last night, so no clue why so tired – but experience has taught me that when I wake up THIS tired, it’s best for me to not go running. Otherwise, I’d be of NO use the rest of the day.
So the plan is to get in a nice 5 miler at least this weekend. Maybe even 6 if I can swing it. We’ll see. :)
Oh and we learned one more little thing about Danes today. Tennis balls are not good Dane toys. Leonardo chomped it & ate half of it… which he then (thankfully) threw up in the back yard. This would be added to that list that already has shoes and dumbbells. Oh yes – years ago, I’d bought these little dumbbells (3 lbs) for the kids because they wanted to workout with Mom when she was lifting. We’ve had them lying around for years, really nothing more than paperweights. Leonardo apparently thought they made good toys & had taken them out back to play with. And yes, one didn’t get picked up… and the end was sheared off by the lawn mower. Luckily no one was hit by flying pieces, but the mower blade is hosed! LOL
