Does anyone know of a great picture storybook with the story of Joseph and his Coat of Many colors?
In more non-knitting content: I am getting FAT. Not cutesy Phat, not pleasantly plump,...old fashioned ugly FAT. I've been spending way too much time sitting on my butt knitting, sitting on my butt sewing, sitting ... reading... you get the picture. Some real problems with ear infection and sinus non-drainage and my inner ears got really wonky a couple of months ago, at which time doc said No bike riding (I was having trouble walking with balance issues, so I got it), No swimming, etc. So I used that lovely excuse to not train for the triathalon which I now cannot do this weekend, and that excuse to sit.
Now I'm paying for it.
So today, dear friends, I got out of the house at 6:30 AM and got my 4 miles in. No running, just walking today. Tomorrow I will start again the couch potato to 5 k program, again.....
but I also stopped at the elementary school lot where they have 50 meter lanes marked off, and did only 25 meters of walking lunges. Argh to think that I could do 100 meters last summer.
Think I'll go get one of those ticker things to count down to my b'day (it;s a big one this year), and see if I can't be up to running again and 100 meters of lunges by then. 4 weeks, think I can do it?
oh, and I must thank Michaele for the first installment of my Knitting Vacay Swap package. She sent 2 Tudor novels by Robin Maxwell The QUEEN'S BASTARD: A Novel, and The Secret Diary of Anne Boleyn. I haven't read any of Maxwell, and although I haven't finished Legacy yet I scanned The Diary. think I'll probably pick that up next and read while actually knitting something on Liz. Thank you Michaele. I'm getting curiouser and curiouser about what's coming.
On the reading front, I've finished Wuthering Heights. I have in mind a project but it has nothing to do with knitting, or yarn even. I'm kind of waiting for a reponse over on KTC for what project criteria count as book projects. This is something I've wanted to make for a very long time, but isn't something I would make in June unless given the motivation for something like a KTC project. Teabird has what I consider an excellent blip on WH on her blog from Tuesdays entry. I agree with her, I just couldn't make myself like the characters, no matter how sympathetic I tried to find them. and I did try.
Currently, I'm still reading Legacy, and listening to Jane Eyre.
and, per Carrie K, this is the Weirdest blog quiz I've ever taken.
I think no matter how you answer it you are a Cultural Creative....whatever that is. the test is def written to obtain a specific result - not very scientific of them is it?
|You scored as Cultural Creative. Cultural Creatives are probably the newest group to enter this realm. You are a modern thinker who tends to shy away from organized religion but still feels as if there is something greater than ourselves. You are very spiritual, even if you are not religious. Life has a meaning outside of the rational.|
