WIP Wednesday

Hi there.

It has been a long week and weekend. Ugh and it is only Wednesday! GAH! This past weekend was suppose to be an uneventful, sit at home and do nothing weekend. However, everyone got the flu. It was still a do nothing weekend except we were all very sick. Oh well. It was over as fast as it came on. Thank goodness.
This week I am tackling Kindergarten. It feels like a huge decision but it really should not be. After school programs, bus options, lunch... and what school we should go it is just the beginning. Everyone has an opinion and I have no idea which one is right. Truthfully, our son is very lucky, he lives in a safe town with good education all around. His parents are both highly educated and value a good education. He will turn out just fine but for right now, I am flooded in paperwork and decisions.
I was able to gain some focus and regroup by knitting and exercising. It has been officially a month since I started running and I love it. I bought new shoes (and was given a second pair, THANKS SUZIE!) for running.  They helped so much. A good pair of shoes goes a long way.

It took a while to get use to finding an hour a day to work out. However, I cannot imagine not working out now. It is my time to relax and just forget about everything else. I have lost 5 inches on my waist, no actual weight loss yet.  Now that I have made running a habit, I would like to tackle my eating habits. Anyone know any delicious salad recipes??
My knitting has been going well. I have decided to stop casting on new projects and to finish some of the WIPS I have. I just finished my Rah Rah socks. I love how they turned out and the fit like a glove.

It has finally become spring and my roommate introduced me to a new park. I love it. It was calm, relaxing, and the perfect place to regroup.

As for reading, I finished the Time Travelers Wife. I loved it. The end was amazing and I cried. While, I am sad it is over,  I decided not to watch the film. In my head, I have a version of what everyone looks like and the whole picture is just how I would imagine and I do not want that to change due to the movie.
I have started the Hobbit. It is such a fun read!! I cannot believe I did not read this sooner. I am excited to also move on to the Girl on the Train. It looks awesome!
I will end with a quick picture of my husband and I on a date night. I love that we have scheduled date nights to be husband and wife not just mom and dad.
thanks for reading until the end. have a great wednesday knitters.

WIP Wednesday

Hello Knitters-

I hope this Wednesday finds you well. I am just working on random projects. Of course they are all socks and none of them of them are finished.
Above I am working on the Intrepid Traveler socks using Claudia Hand Painted Yarns in (I believe) the ancient pottery colorway. I love doing socks 2 at a time because I actually finish the second sock!!

I am still reading the Time Travelers Wife. It is turning out to be a great read. I am excited to find out the end.

WIP Wednesday: A quick update


I have started yet another pair of socks. But who blames me when you have such beautiful yarn:
This was purchased by my knitting buddy. Her family was in town this weekend visiting for my sons big 5th birthday. It was such a great, relaxing weekend but it always goes so fast.

I also got a bit farther on my Rah Rah socks, the first one is complete!
I am still reading The Time Travelers Wife... I am not reading as much lately. That tends to happen when I am grant writing. I get home and just want to not think, at all. I promise, next week will be a better, more detailed up-date!
