I snuck in a quick 2 mile run yesterday morning. I managed a good pace, it was the fastest run I’ve had for some time. Still no where near where I’d like to be, but it was still an improvement! Clearly I’m not keeping up well enough with my running, however, as my shins are tight & twinging a bit today. Got up early to run, but when the shins complained about walking, I decided not to push it after all. So I went back to bed. LOL
Finished up the little Noro shawl the night before last. I still haven’t blocked it yet, though. Once I get it blocked, I’ll get some pictures done & post it. I’m really very pleased with how it turned out – though I am hoping that it will be a bit bigger once it’s blocked. I had just a little ball leftover, which I’m knitting into a garter stitch headband/neck warmer type of deal. It’s just going to be a long thin scarf that should be long enough to tie for a headband or at my neck to keep the back of it warm from the a/c at the office. We shall see. LOL
Nothing much to see
Nothing much exciting or new has happened since I last blogged, really. Had a lovely quiet Mother’s Day as the manlets were with their father (the schedule just falls that way – they will be with me on Father’s Day!).
I re-watched Heroes, Season 3 over the past few days. I wanted to see if the storylines meshed better than it seemed. Nope. The storyline really was all over the place & didn’t make a whole lot of sense. Just when a storyline seemed to be flowing pretty well, it suddenly changed completely & went somewhere else. Sylar is still my favorite character. Peter used to my favorite, but he’s not as much now since they took his power away & gave him that lame “only one power at a time” one. He was the only character that had a hope of winning against Sylar – now that will be impossible. I still love Ando, of course. And I totally have mixed feelings about Mohinder. I’m glad they got him back to his quest for answers with his father & away from that whole weird quasi-Fly thing. LOL
Today’s Ravelry Search
Memorial Day is coming up for those of us in the U.S. – a time to remember those that fought & died for our country. Today’s patterns are some selections that came up from searching on ‘memorial’. I thought it might be nice to make some of these to give to someone who has lost a loved one in service…
* Free pattern
Happy Wednesday, all!
