This week has been filled with distractions, I’m afraid. The manlets & I are still trying to work out a morning routine that works for all 3 of us – one that gets us out the door early enough that they are not late to school & I’m not late to work. It’s taking a bit of time, but we’re getting there! The biggest problem I have is getting my feet on the road early enough so I make it back in time to wake them. When I’m on my own, I can get back home by 6:20 and still have plenty of time to get ready for work. But with them around, I must return home by 5:45 to get the first one moving.
I wake up plenty early enough – 4:30 just about every morning. My biggest problem is that I check in with my various websites as I sip my morning cup of coffee. I’ve been getting distracted by doing that & before I know it, it’s 5:20 and I barely have enough time for a 2 mile run! Yeesh. This morning I managed to pull myself away early enough that I got in 3 miles anyway. Next week, I’ll be getting in more 3-5 mile runs, at least.
The happy news is that September has been my best running month all year long, w00t! Not only is my pace finally improving, but I’ve already gotten more miles under my belt than last month – and I still have 6 days of running left! Yay!
I’ve been working on a shrug to keep in the office. I do have my little sock yarn shawl in the office, but it just doesn’t quite work for keeping me warm. The downside of living in Florida – they keep it very cold at my office! Anyway, I’m knitting up a pattern that seems to be rather obscure and I don’t know why – it’s lovely!! It’s Eve’s Mistake Lace Shrug – very cute! There’s only one picture of it on the pattern page right now, but trust me, it’s very cute!! I’ve modified it just a tiny bit, making it long sleeve & 2×2 ribbing rather than plain stockinette. Otherwise, I’ve followed the pattern & I just love it!! I hope to have it done by the weekend & will get pics posted of it then. :)
So being a dog person, I love all the silly things that they do. They can be so gosh darn cute & funny. Getting all playful, going into play stance, their entire butt wagging along with their tail… jumping up & rolling around in the grass. All adorable in your average sized dog. But seriously hysterical in a 200 pound Great Dane!! I’ve yet to catch Leonardo in play stance, but I managed to catch him rolling around in the grass the other day…
