OK, was that the worst title ever or what? But I just couldn’t resist….because when I got home from work last night, one of my Mother’s Day gifts was waiting for me….
Terrible picture I know, but It was the only one I could get – notice Ruby looking confused? The dogs couldn’t figure out what we were doing. Anyway – Wii Fit is so much fun – and actually a good workout (no really, it is!). I won’t tell you my Wii age….but if it were true, I’d be retired. I guess I’m a bit out of shape. Hm…and I apparently have balance issues – which explains the multiple times I’ve fallen, broken my arm, etc. I’m looking forward to using this and hopefully getting a bit more active. There is nothing like having your exercise disguised as a game to make you want to do it!
Speaking of not being active, I’ve started a new project
This is the Ballet Camisole (Ravel it!) and I’m using Knit Picks Shine. I really like this yarn – it is so soft and silky. I’m already thinking that I may be more for another summer project, but I do want to see how it washes and wears. But so far, I’m giving it a thumbs up. This project is perfect TV knitting – I just have to keep track of decreases (and probably at some point, increases).
If you are observent, you will notice that I’m posting this on a Friday morning – normally I’m sitting on a train at this time, but I’m home, sipping coffee, and looking at a long long weekend, a full knitting basket, a half bobbin of yarn…..aaaahhhh. Yep, as you probably guessed I took today off. And I just couldn’t be happier about it. So this morning I’m going to a) Wii Fit b) knit Icarus and c) spin. This afternoon, Larry and I are golfing and then going out to dinner. Doesn’t that just sound like a perfect day? The rest of the weekend will be gardening, knitting, napping, and things of that nature. And I just may check out an alpaca festival on Sunday (is the 10% on the actual alpaca or just the fleece? Because I’m sort of worried that if I saw an alpaca on sale, I’d definitely have to put it in the backseat and take him home…10% is 10%!).
I thought I’d share a great blog with you – Sheep Gal – you have to go look at the lamb pictures. So freaking cute…
I hope to have a close to being done Icarus to show you later this weekend…but for now, have a wonderful weekend!
