Her blog is a fun mix of craft, personal project and running/health/fitness. She's got a positive, inspirational but real tone, which I really appreciate. I often find some inspiration to sign up for another 5k or make that extra day in the week at the gym after reading her. Goals are meant to be achieved and it's nice to have a voice that reminds you it doesn't mean you're setting yourself up for disappointment, even when (and I probably will many more times in the future) I take steps back occasionally. This applies to my knitting too, hehe.
Speaking of knitting. I did finish the rainbow socks. They are not weaved in yet or blocked, but HM, these are coming your way soon. Yes, it's a long leg on a little foot. HM has a small foot, and I dunno, I have a tendency to knit long legs. I'm trying to switch it up, but I guess "long leg" is my default sock knitting setting.
I thought I'd have another pair finished this weekend, but after the taco party at my sister's we kept the party train going. Sunday The Manfriend and I took 6 boys to see The Guardians of the Galaxy. Heck yeah. It was great. Soundtrack? I'm in love. I mean come on, The Runaways, David Bowie AND the Pina Colada song? Everyone sways to that song, don't lie!
Little fact, my 6 middle school boys were well behaved compared to the 2 grown men fussing at each other over their seating arrangment (and lack of manners all around -- really, a) put your feet down b) try not to kick the person's seat in front of you. You should've seen the boys watching this grown man snooty smack talk. It was like watching cats watch tennis.
Parents came over for Sparkling wine and crostini snacks for a cocktail party. Fun times! Clean kitchen at bedtime :)
One final knitting note. I am trying to catch up on my blog reading. Seriously, knitting bloggers are just ze best, dahlings for some online sunshine. Along my partial catch-up way Dee sucked me into Andi's pumpkin sock knit along.
The cat with the orange sock picture on Dee's site was very woo-ing.
Kathy are you reading this? Socks and Pumpkins and fall themes? Hello, this has you written all over it. Who's with me?
