πŸ˜› I’m starin’ to feel repetitive here! You’d think all I do is run. Anyhow, I’m apparently in love with mapmyrun.com, so here is this morning’s run:

Its more or less like Monday’s, with a few important differences. First of all, morning running was much nicer. A tad warmer, and there’s the mist filling the valley and lots of nice sun. Then, I saw this nice cute residential trail I didn’t try Monday and said, what the heck. Well… grrrrrr it lead me back uphill and off my route. Happily, it also dropped me off near the top of another residential trial I’d been wondering where it went, so I took that one back down to the main route. So in the end it was actually a very pleasant detour. And this time I found the road that would take me back up to the non-busy street above our house, so I could avoid the morning traffic on Ruby where there is no sidewalk.

Today’s goal other than that is to get going more on fundraising. Somehow I’ve posted my knitting ads (I’m used to posting knitting ads! Oh and the mini patterns are all written and edited) but I haven’t let even my closest friends know I’m in marathon training. We had a friend over for dinner last night and she was tres excited when she saw my blog reference on the e-mail. πŸ˜› So today’s goal is to write up and send out the please for money. Then I can settle back into knitting…

Sugar and Spice socks detailKnitting, oi, MUST FINISH PETER SWEATER. I’m so bored with it… I’ve been finding myself going back to the Sugar and Spice socks which I had LOST in my miserable attempt at housekeeping (Thank you Anna and the housekeeping crew for finding them for me!!!), and then remembered why we do not put off second socks and start 8 other projects. I totally forgot how many stitches to leave at the center of the heel. After a few rows past the turn I looked back… and it was clearly wider than the first. *sigh* tink tink tink (for non knitters, please spell tink backwards…) I still have to say I LOVE PANDA SILK. πŸ˜› Maybe I can convince Susan at CP to dye me up some in marathon colors…. The yarn is so soft to knit with and the 2 socks I have done (different patterns, lol) feel really nice on the feet. Don’t think its racing yarn, but they make very elegant socks, perfect for work shoes or looking a little nicer.

Any advice for getting second socks and second sleeves done without giving into the urge to start new projects? πŸ˜‰ things are getting a tad insane over here…
