I have also spent a lot of time running, thinking about running, thinking about not running, being scared of the half marathon, nursing a sore knee, and then running some more... Still feel my stomach drop when I think about what is ahead. What was I thinking!? Hopefully a tick off on the bucket list :) This week I am heading into a full on 9/10 weeks out training schedule... wish me luck! Please!
I have also been frantically hooking, knitting, and painting in anticipation of various birthdays coming up (my Littlest Rascals included- eeek! Can't believe they will be 2 soon!) and of course Christmas in hope to not be a complete nut job around Christmas time and actually being able to enjoy some time with my Far Away Sister and the Rascals :)
I also managed to sneak away for a first ever completely frivolous, self indulgent, vino filled girls weekend away! And it was amazing :) We ate good food, visited markets,crafted and gossiped- Bliss! And even indulged in a spot of Stitchopoly for a laugh :)
While there have been many good things in the past month I have found myself feeling heavy and weighted down with the load of every day life and Three Small Rascals. I have had to work a bit harder than normal to turn my frown upside down :) So it was a relief to see some hints of spring while at my Parents house in the weekend :) Great bike ride with the kids, flowers galore and some fantastic sunny spots to soak up the sun, a good run, and a bit of hooky work.
As always I have had made time for my Blanket Love <3 I am nearing the end now, sadly. I have never SO thoroughly enjoyed a project- every line has been absolute bliss. It will be hard to replace this project with an equally lovable one :)
I have also been working on a Cute Flowery project for the dining room table- I saw this pattern and just had to have it! Stay tuned I think it will be a goodie!
And finally I was so excited to finally be able to cast on one of my first projects from this delightful Debbie Bliss book (I ADORE it!) So many good things in there- I just haven't known where to start! It is looking SO Pretty/Funky- the colour combo is just right. It is for a pressie tho so therefore is Secret Squirrel Business for a little while yet!
Excited to have so many creative things going on at the moment, just hoping for a wee bit more energy for all the Regular Ole Stuff and for a Happier Knee...
Hope you are all smiling :)
