So this and last week have been spring break.  And with me teaching 3 classes I was swamped and in much need of breakage.  So we set off for Tahoe and some good old fashioned spring skiing…  only…  it snowed 2 feet the day before we drove up.  🙂  weekday skiing, no lines, new fresh powder, spring sunshine and gorgeous views, what more can a girl ask for?  Here are a select few photos:

(Yes, that’s me going on a black-diamond access only lift…)

It has been a long time…  I took on a teaching gig that was supposed to be part time then I agreed to teach another class or so…  suddenly I have no spare time!  happily teaching and knitting are not incompatible, so I’ve gotten some things moved along, jsut had no time to write about them!    So with no further ado, here are the latest patterns I got together for Suzi’s Knits:


I also have 2 more finished socks to photo and write up, so stay tuned…

SF AIDS Marathon 2008

On August 3, myself and about 500 other runners will complete the San Francisco marathon in an effort to raise $1,000,000 for the San Francisco AIDS Foundation. This is the culmination of nearly 2 years of lifestyle changes and weight loss for me, and a chance for me to use my new-found energy and fitness to give back to my community. I hope you will join me in this effort by reading and offering your support through my blog. If you are able, I also welcome your contribution to the cause! Thanks and keep on running!

Progress Bar:

Marathon time: 5:40:22
Total Raised: $2,815.70
