Not much knitting to report. The log cabin is still coming along nicely. I think I have about six more rectangles to complete before I can call it finished. I'll see what project strikes my fancy after that. I'm limiting myself right now because there is too much to knit!
I just booked tickets for J and I to go visit his brother in D.C. the first weekend in May, which just happens to be the same weekend of the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival! This will be the first time there for me - I'm so excited to go, but I don't know where to start! I'm afraid for my wallet that day as well!
Eating right and exercising - Doing great there so far. I did a 45 minute kickboxing class last night, then went on a 30 minute walk to loosen my muscles up. Today is weight training. Fun! Food isn't that much of an issue yet, except yesterday I wasted 600 calories on chocolate - too much! Today's menu is better because I'm eating mostly fruits and veggies all day so I can enjoy chinese tonight.
The Secret - Have you heard the hype on this book? I read it, it's interesting. I'm living by the principles right now.
Work - I've been so busy lately. I feel like if one thing goes wrong, I will miss a ton of deadline and make some clients very angry. It's fulfilling work for the most part, but a little bit frustrating. That's o.k. though, because exercise helps me de-stress.
Travel - There is a lot of travel coming up for me over the next few weeks. We're home the next three weekends, then going to St. Louis for two weekends, then back here for two, then to Washington D.C., then back for two, then to St. Louis for one, then back for two, then New York City for one, then back...and that takes us up until July 4th! TOO MUCH TRAVEL!
Pictures - I lost my digital camera sometime after I took a bike ride with it on the 10th. I remember bringing it back into the house, but don't know where it went after that. I have my dad's camera that I'm borrowing, but I haven't even attempted to use it yet so no photos for a little while!
Yes, it does look like it could easily be converted to a working wheel, but that is not the case. That post is GLUED in there! Apparently no one every spun on this wheel - it was made for decoration only. I'm not that sad since I already decided that I wasn't a spinner, but now I have this non-working wheel to deal with. I think I might take it to an antique shop or something and see what I can get for it. I feel really bad for this woman who was in the spinning class that I took who bought a wheel like mine for $350, and the little old man she bought it from claimed his wife spinned on it for years, but it turns out hers is a fake too! Little old man liar!!
One of these days, I'm going to make a list of all of these things that I want to knit...one of these days.
Oh, and my Aunt Carol found a white feather this weekend.
This will be gifted this summer to one of the two friends I have pregnant! another summer of babies around here!
Oh, and I finally figured out why my photos are so grainy sometimes...when I upload them from home (on dial up) they only can upload a certain amount...so they are pixelated. I'll try to be better about uploading from work, but this is all I've got right now!
