Over the weekend, we spent Saturday in ACTIVE mode: That means we walked a fun run fundraiser for a scholarship fund at our high school in honor of the late daughter of classmates of ours, and wandered up through the woods around the track at the school. It was fun, we saw lots of folks from high school that we hadn't seen in awhile, and got a taste of the fun of fundraising walking...
Then we visited a farmers' market, had lunch at a great (local) pizzaria, and tested out bicycles. We're getting those for another phase of our "healthy activity" lifestyle that we're nurturing...both my new beau and I have had heart "events" as they call them these days, so we're determined to take care of ourselves, and we're having a blast doing just that! We're talking about doing some biking weekend trips next summer, once we're used to longer treks on the vehicles!
It's delightful that he's as interested as I am in cooking and healthy food, local food (ok, that's growing on him)...and on Sunday we put in 2 miles walking on our Greenway (where it was flat...FLAT, I tell you! Whew!). I'm very excited that I can still ride a bike, and that my exercise bike has apparently gone a long way towards strengthening the muscles I needed to strengthen to make bike-riding comfortable! Yay!
I've been trying to figure out what to call my new beau out here on Knitnana, and have at present decided to use NB for New Beau. Not very exciting, of course, but I hope that meets with everyone's approval?
Got to work today to find these books had arrived in the mail:
There are several patterns in that Knit Red book that I want to knit! And you all know that Knitnana is all about the Knit Red, having begun the group back in yahoo email lists history and moderating the Knit Red for Women's Heart Disease group on Ravelry, too.
So I'm delighted with the books - that other one is chock-full of bright, fun-filled rooms with lots of yarn-craft ideas in it, too, not just the usual decorating book. Can't wait till bedtime tonight when I can enjoy more of them.
OH! The Meezer came out and allowed NB petting time! He was amazed, and frankly, so was I...but she's not a mean kitty, just one who is reserved and wants to be sure someone isn't a threat before she warms up to a person. Still, I was delighted, and so was NB.
