I had a bit longer absence from my blog than I'd anticipated, but fear not, I haven't been sitting around twiddling my thumbs. In addition to work (which I do love), I've been...
I figure I've logged about 40 km so far since the beginning of April. I've been preparing for a 5KM race this weekend. Sometimes, it is torture, and sometimes, like yesterday, I come home feeling euphoric. The occasional euphoria (or runner's high, as I believe it's called) is definitely worth the torture. Plus, I'm definitely feeling more energized over all.
I'm still working away at my dollhouse rug. It's almost finished. Now I actually have to start building the house.
Actually, I guess this is quilting. One of my more ambitious projects at present. I found this wonderful old twin-size sheet at the thrift store and decided that it would make a marvelous throw quilt for the end of my bed. I've never quilted before, so I'm learning as I go, and the end of my fingers are raw. I guess I really do need those thimbles after all. This quilt is one part of my whole bedroom redo plan. My room (yes, it's Javier's too, I guess) is looking a bit sad these days.
I can't leave the library these days with any less than 6 books. I'm trying to figure out how to quilt and read at the same time.
We finally get to have spring around here and things are turning green. Unfortunately, I didn't get around to winterizing my flower bed last fall, so I get to clean things up now, which is not so much fun. However, it is awfully fun to be outside enjoying the sunshine.
I hope to stop by for visits soon! I hope everyone is well.
