Today will be a long day, with not much knitting. In a few minutes DB and I are leaving to go to the next county seat. I need to return my father's handicapped placards (deceased) and get one for my mother. DB found an interesting little place f... Read more

This morning it was raining again, this time with thunder, no walk outside. Need to power up the treadmill. Instead I took a sleeping bag to the laundromat to use a huge drum washer. My washer at home is too small and could damage the bag with t... Read more

It is raining so I am not walking. I was up earlier than normal this morning because I woke up a little after 4am. When I realized that I was not going to be able to go back to sleep I just got up and was ready for the day, with coffee made, bef... Read more
Monday morning walk

I overslept so my walk was not as long. I made up for less walking time by more verticals. Going up is always OK but coming down I am starting to feel more in my knees. Some days all is well and some days they are a little cranky. This morning w... Read more

But I was still walking, even longer. I have a bad case of 'startits'. Heading into the stash room to clear out sleeping bags I saw a bag of discontinued yarn that was given to me. Instead of dealing with the sleeping bags I went on Ravelry to ... Read more

Just started a new watch cap out of donated fiber that I handspun. Every year at the Iowa State Fair a talented dyer lays out fiber she has dyed in an arena in the sheep barn and area spinners and knitters spend the day there spinning the fiber ... Read more

Continuing what I started yesterday I walked again this morning. By going a slightly different route to the local drugstore I got in more miles. I took the return walk through the local cemetery. I have always found it to be a peaceful place to ... Read more

I had letters to post and since I cannot do that at work, DB and I walked to the nearest drop place (approximately 20 minutes away) to drop them off. We were there and back before 8am. It was a lovely time of day to be walking. I used to do th... Read more

That is how long I will be on what feels like house-arrest but called Administrative Leave. I have to act like I am at work 8am-5pm, no going to nearby towns, no going for a walk in the middle of the day, etc. I must be available to answer any ... Read more

Too much has happened since I last was on spark people. So long ago I almost cannot believe it. In between my parents moved to a care facility; their house was cleared out, an auction held, items to resale and antique shops; my father died; the... Read more
Long Walk Yesterday

Long for me anyway. My walks have been home to bus and bus to work. Granted it is a good walk, mostly uphill in the bus to work part so I get a good workout and then trot up the steps once inside the building. Yesterday DB and I walked a trail t... Read more
