I spent a bit of pocket change last weekend to pick up a used exercise bike, and have been riding it everyday since. Tonight I've made it up to 8 miles in 25 minutes. I put on my MP3 player with some relatively fast Michael Buble and peddle away at 22-25 mph, doing short bursts of "spinning-style" peddling here and there. I cannot believe I've been able to build up to such a lengthy time so quickly, but I suppose months of using Leslie Sansone's walking videos have helped that some.
So last night I managed to get a couple more coupon wallets made (I'm building up stock for the Olde Liberty Fibre Faire
on April 14). I'm trying to take it a little bit easy, too, since I'm showing signs of allergies with all the pollen from the wonderful early Spring we're having.
I'm participating in letter-writing (okay sending mass emails) to politicians at both the state and federal level in protest of what appears to be the most recent spate of anti-women, anti-gay, and anti-ability budgets, laws, and other attempts at changing society for the worst. And that's an amazingly energy-sapping job.
So I come home, spend time on the bike, then eat, and watch the news. After that, a little surfing online, Facebook, emails, and such, (tho' precious little Ravelry, these days) and then I turn to my chair: I'm keeping your seat warm for you, Mommie
My little girl is kinda needy these days...not sure why. Tonight she walked up to me as I was sitting down, and pushed her head against my shin, hard, while I rubbed her head...it's a very "out of the ordinary" behavior for her.
But we sit down, and she's either next to me on the arm of the chair or behind me on the back of it while I read and knit...
The blue tweed sock is progressing, and I'm alternating between my sis-in-law's Landscape Shawl and my Ripple Afghan. It seems I want to work with BLUE these days...
Of course, I love my little girl's blue eyes best of all.
