What a day!

Well I it was a long day . I did not get as much as I wanted done, but I can start again on Tuesday. We have a long weekend besides the mortgage it the long weekend gave me a reason to keep going. I cast off the butterfly washcloth yesterday and cast on the rubber ducky. I will pace myself and to get the washcloths done. I am still reading On Strike for Christmas, still a good read. I will post pictures of the washcloths because my friend does not read my blog. So I feel safe in the fact that she will not see the washcloths.

Monday workout!

I made it through another Monday at work. It was a very busy day. I did not get half the things I wanted to do done. Well I will start again tomorrow. Today was my third training session and I did the lower body workout and 30 minutes on the treadmill. Today I increased to 30 of all the exercises and I made it 30 seconds squatting with the exercise ball behind my back. I guess I choose a very busy time to join because it seems really hard to get an early appointment time. I have one more training session on Wednesday but could not get it until 6:30 I don't want to go home before my workout. So this is why I need to come up with something to do for over an hour. I will think of something, maybe I will go to the library and knit. I am really upset with myself, late on Saturday I cast on a baby washcloth, and yesterday I spent worked on the scarf on and off and made it to row 41 and then it happened a mistake. I tried to correct it but dropped some stitches while trying to repair the mistake. These washcloths do not have difficult stitches but you have to do a lot of counting! So for my this means I should not try and watch Big Love! I was caught up in the last few minutes of Big Love lost count and could not repair. So I have ripped it out and will start over not tonight I don't have the heart. I will tomorrow because I really intend to give my friend something for her baby due in February. Tonight I am going to continue reading On Strike for Christmas, by Sheila Roberts. It is shaping up to be another great cozy ready. It is not a mystery. Yes it does have a knitting theme. A group of women in a knitting group go on strike for Christmas to teach their husband a lesson. Long weekend ahead no work on Monday, MLK jr. Holiday! I will keep you posted on the exercise thing.
