Sock mojo has returned, w00t!

Running

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.

Knitting

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.  ;)

Other stuff

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.  :)

  1. have you tried glucosamine for the shin pain? you can take it as suplements or as a topical gel to ease the stressed bones.

      Oh, Suse – yep – I had tried pretty much everything, I’m afraid. I knew better than to run on the treadmill – I’ve gotten tendinitis from it before. So now I know to just take it easy & try not to push too much too fast. *sigh*

    I’m with you on the drama. I seriously do not know what is wrong with some people. Every time I think we’ve heard the last of them, pop goes the crazy.
