How’s 2014 been treating you? It seems that I’ve picked up right where I left off. I’m not one to get into the whole “new beginnings” and whatnot, I just try to keep up! So far, so good.
The only new thing I committed to this year is a photo 365 - again. I start every year and always quit. This year I didn’t start until a few days into the new year. Photos have been taken every day, but the uploading and documenting has fallen by the wayside quickly. I’m blaming it on my computer, which is painful to use. It’s beyond time for a new one. That will happen soon.
Did I tell you that I’m running my first half-marathon this weekend? I know! Remember when I told you about my running? I’m still at it! Back in November I learned that this was taking place , so I started training. I didn’t officially sign up until I hit 10 miles in my training. Well, here I am, the race is this weekend. I’m so nervous!! As luck would have it, my knee started bothering me exactly a week from the race. It’s my stupid IT band. I’m resting and stretching (I love my foam roller). So far the pain has subsided, thank goodness. I’m determined to run that damn race!!!
Last weekend was spent away with Lily and her dance team at the Louisiana Dance Team Competition. They did were awesome!! All their hard work certainly paid off. In all of Lily’s years of dancing (she’s been at it since she was 2), I don’t think she’s ever worked this hard. I’m so proud of her and her team!!
During the competition I thought I’d get lots of time to do some hand sewing and knitting. I did get to do a little bit, but not as much as I thought. The majority of my work was on some gifts, so I can’t show you those until they’ve been received. I’m sure the suspense is killing you, ha ha!!
I’ll be back later with some show and tell of the knitting variety.
