I Work Out...

I decided to get a workout in before I try to hit it hard again starting next week. My big goal is to flatten my stomach and build up strength in my legs so I can tackle hills this summer on my bike. I'm not a dieter and don't intend to be, so the improvements will all have to come from working out. I figure I'll still get ahead, though.

I don't go to a gym because I prefer to make a fool of myself in the privacy of my own home. My workouts consist of spinning, and Jillian Michael's Six Week Six Pack and Killer Buns and Thighs. I have a few other DVD's I throw in once in a while. It seems to be working. I'm not planning on ending up stick thin, though, just improved.

Book I'm reading: Just got The Hobbit from the library, starting it tonight.
Afghan Round: 65
Current amigurumi: Dinosaur still
Workouts: Abs and spinning today

Another year....

Another try at blogging. Let's just face it, I am blog commitment-phobic. I think it's because I tried so hard to be like other blogs before, and failed miserably! I'm not going to do that anymore. Since I don't really have many followers/readers (thanks to those who are sticking with me!), I figure these will just be my musings to the great unknown. What I foresee (should I stick with this, because anyone that knows me knows I have a short attention span), are posts about crafting projects I'm working on, mostly crochet, fitness, music, movies, and books. Hopefully this will be come more interesting the more I keep up with it. If not, I'll try, try again.

I'm currently working on an epic afghan for my sister and relaunching my Etsy shop bigger and better than before. I have lots of new ideas that sprang from a recent commission I received from a lady I work with. So here are stats I'll share weekly, or whenever I post anyway:

Book I'm reading: Alison Wonderland
Afghan Round: 62
Current amigurumi: Dinosaur
Workouts this week: Zilch

My "To-Read" List

On my immediate "to-read" list after I get done reading...

The Athena Project is...

The Murder of Roger Ackroyd

Weetzie Bat (Thanks for the tip MissIndie!)

Finish reading Anna Karenina. I started, but stopped when I read The Deathly Hallows.

I have lots more books on my Kindle, but I have to start somewhere.

Photo of the Day

I'm going to try something new with the blog for a bit. I'm not committing to a 365 project, but I figure I'll take some baby steps and see what happens. Stay tuned for more pictures (and not just project pictures either).

New Product Line - Wall Hangings

A long time ago, before I discovered amigurumi, Iused to crochet picture afghans intarsia style. When thinking about different products for my shop, my mind went back to those days. I figured the hat and scarf market is fully saturated and I didn't think I could add anything new to it. But the awesome thing about pictures is I can put my own stamp on them. Like art, they are unique to my style. That makes me really excited. So the two snowmen above are now available in the shop. Look for more snowmen in the future as well as other designs. I hope you like them as much as I do!

P. S. I can also get pictures off my camera again. Hopefully that will mean more blog posts!
