Lucy is almost in the sky

April 15, 2008

I really don’t think I’ve done much lately. Knitting-wise, and everything else-wise too. Maybe it’s the weather. Super unpredictable, warm and breezy one day and freezing cold the next. Oh spring! You bi-polar bear!

My Lucy in the Sky cardigan is almost done. In fact, the actual knitting part is done. Currently it’s being blocked (if you’d call leaving the damp sweater on the floor to recover “blocking”) and waiting to have some buttons put on. I even bought the buttons already too.

We’ll discuss the details later, when it’s actually done completely.

I finally finished up the Waving Lace socks too. Finally grafted the toe shut earlier today.

Now I’m out of things to do. Ahhhhhhh

On the side (strange and funny) note – I’ve decided to start running. By running, I mean, half way walking, half way jogging. Ok, more walking than running.

It’s kinda rather sad, really. I went out once in the early afternoon and once again early evening, both lasted about 15 minutes each. I know I only ran for this (–) much, but my legs are saying that I ran for this (———–) much. Yes, I’m so out of shape, it’s not even funny.

Granted, this was my first day trying to get off my lazy bum. I don’t really plan on running all that much this week. Just to get my body get used to doing it. I’m not even doing this for weight control or health issue. I really just want to get myself do something other than just sitting around – which is what I do all the time. Even if I stand outside for 10 minutes standing still, I’d consider that a success!

Yes, if you haven’t noticed, I’m not at all an active person.

And before I go, let me leave you with totally factoid about me: Do you know what I really hate about Cracker Jack? PEANUTS! Ok, I like caramel popcorns, I like peanuts (somewhat). I dislike caramel covered skinned peanuts in caramel popcorns!

  1. I love the colour you’ve chosen – it looks like it’s going to be beautiful.

    I made a rather nebulous New Year’s resolution to take morning runs, but it’s taken me this long to remember to buy some suitable running shoes. Good luck! I’m hoping that maybe I’ll have started by June…
