Last Friday I hit a rough patch. Remember that horrible shin pain that knocked me out of my marathon and sidelined me from all running for a year? Yeah. I had twinges of the same pain Friday. Thursday’s total of 5 miles was clearly too much, too soon. So I avoided any sort of running all weekend. I hope to get in a short run today after work. We’ll see.
Woo Hoo! Got my plan worked out for Draco. I made excellent progress on them last night. I am SO excited about how they are turning out!! I can’t wait to get to them again. I almost want to post pictures of them early, but I am not going to! It’s going to be a surprise. he he he Suffice to say, I am THRILLED with them so far.
OH, yeah! Discovered a pattern variation for the Here, Fishie, Fishie blanket. Some wonderfully kind soul also was vexed by the curled up fishies – so came up with a change to the pattern that prevents the curling. I tried it on the last fishie & it works beautifully!! YAY! Link here, for anyone interested. ;)
So, went & saw The Watchmen over the weekend. Honestly, I am still not sure what I think about it. I really must read the graphic novel – I have had it in my laptop bag for over a month. The movie? I kind of loved it, but kind of didn’t. It’s just really hard to pinpoint what my reaction is. Clearly. LOL!
Found an Etsy shop that has some really awesome soap – ReitersCrafts.etsy.com. I bought one bar of White Chocolate Truffle a few weeks ago. It arrived quickly & I started using it a couple weeks ago. It is WONDERFUL! It smells heavenly – and the scent actually stays with you long after you’ve showered with it. I highly recommend it!
Much dramaz over the weekend… I adore what Casey & Jess have put together. It is an awesome & truly amazing site. They have built such a fantastic thing and it is utterly FREE! I was terribly saddened that they have had so much nastiness & negativity to deal with, though. Serious kudos to them for everything that they had to do recently – and for handling it all as well as they did. For my part – I totally intend to click any/all ads that strike my fancy there. :)
