Do you find that in life you are always working at something? I guess its just a part of life, no matter how relaxing it is, its still work. Even when I’m having fun working on my sweater…see there is that evil word again, work. Well I’m on the second sleeve to St. Brigid. If…and that’s a big if….I get to work on it this weekend I should maybe finish the sleeve. Although I’m dying to get back to my loom again as well. I haven’t woven one centimeter in the last two weeks. I was at my cousin’s wedding the weekend before last and this past weekend I worked the entirety of it as work work is insane right now. This weekend doesn’t look much better, so I’m not sure if there will be weaving or knitting. But the one thing that I love about knitting over weaving is that it is really much more portable.
I also purchased a book on card or tablet weaving. I really want to try it. Its very cool and has such a rich history in nearly all parts of the world, excluding the Americas of course. I’ve only read the historical part of the book because I just simply haven’t had time to read anything more.
I’m also trying to refocus on my health and weight again as well. But then I think that will be the one constant thing I’m always working at. It doesn’t seem like it will every really go away. But well, at least there is always the stability of it being around, stability is comforting right? With some gift certificates I purchased the New Ea Active 2 for our Wii (that Nick’s parents bought us) so I’m following the Cardio Kick Start program, but I’m only on the 2nd workout. We’ll see how it goes. Right now its killing me, but I’m really out of shape. I may go back to my walking programs, but we’ll see. Every day is a different day and provides different opportunities.
So in crafting news my cousin (the bride) loved her hat, but I think was less than thrilled about the scarf. She immediatley threw both on, and then promptly wore her hat for the next two days but didn’t wear the scarf. My cousin who received the red and black hat, graciously accepted her gift, but I don’t think really liked it. But afterall she’s 15 and well, that’s a tough age to get a gift right. But she’s such a sweet kid I didn’t really care that she didn’t fall all over it.
In doggy news, Norman is going to be with us at least a month longer than my brother anticipated. So now the earliest he’ll leave us is March. I can’t help but deny I’m happy. I’m going to miss the big guy when he’s gone. Although I’ve tried very hard to constantly remind myself he’s a temporary resident, its hard to not wish he’d stay forever.
Well, I’d better get back to “working at it.” Have a good week. HOpefully I’ll catch up on everyone’s blogs I read soon.
