Craptastic

I don't know what has been going on but I have been feeling very sore and tired for a least three weeks, in a word I have been feeling CRAPTASTIC. I have had terrible headaches for a while and this is unusual for me, typically I get a headache about once a year and I usually have done something to earn it. I am also feeling a bit homesick and my mood has been as low as my physical energy. This is also unusual for me.

Don't worry this is not a pity post I am working to pull myself up by the boot straps. I have stepped up to the plate and I have increased my mileage and have added some more challenging runs as well as increasing the weight workouts. I am hoping that this will make me feel better and will help to increase my energy and shake off the blues.

I am also trying to drink more water and eat more protein and less sugar. I don't eat a lot of sugar but just a little of the stuff seems to mess with my energy levels. Sugar, sugar, typing the word kind of makes me want a cookie, sugar.

Here is some craptastic knitting for you: it looks all good to start a new project doesn't it?



Look, I even get gauge with the suggested needle size: No one comment of the size of the swatch, size doesn't matter and neither does row gauge.



Here is where is all goes south: Even the lego knights can't figure out this lace pattern. Don't to worry, I am practicing with some durable sale yarn, no alpaca/silk yarn has been harmed in this experiment.



It's not all bad, in fact I have a lot to smile about.

A 2nd birthday card from mom and Darryl. Knitting a sock from the knitting book that was just a small portion of the knitterly gifts from them.



Two pairs of finished socks: one for Shannon and one for me. (Shannon I will put these in the mail for you with Taylor's birthday gift.)



Love:



Roses in my own backyard thinking very hard about blooming:



One of a thousand smiles I get everyday:



Kamloops is a lovely place, anyone in California or Las Vegas want to move here???

I'm with Angie, the temperature there sounds much better than the tempature here. I
I'm glad you're back, I was wondering where you'd wandered off to.

Too cold in the winter for me. Don't mind the hot days here in the valley we have A/C. They need to start putting it in homes in the BA what with Global Warming and all.
