Blogging.... right..... I used to do that didn't I? The cousins have gone back to Vancouver, the first installment of the boy's birthday celebration is complete, the house is sort of almost back to normal, the week's dyeing is underway (DD just walked in the door from school, complaining loudly that she could smell hot vinegar for miles), orders pulled for mailing, shawl pins tumbling to a burnished glow....
That's what I wanted to say. Today is the last day for the "free shawl pin with every yarn order" offer - the cut-off will be midnight tonight my time (Pacific standard). It has been great fun, and very successful, judging by the number of pins that have gone out and the lovely thank-you notes.... so successful in fact, that I have a significant repetitive strain injury brewing in my wrists and thumb. I will be adding copper shawl pins to the webstore for sale over the coming weeks, but at a much slower rate of production! I've got some other cool ideas for the coming months, though April's will be significantly less wrist-intensive.
I'm loving the comments on last post, even though I'm still too scatterbrained to come up with a clever response. If I waited for a bolt of cleverness to strike, though, I would have missed the window of opportunity to tell you about the other stuff, so you get this semi-lame post.
How about a picture? I've decided to try a less daunting route to fitness, starting with just getting out the door in some fashion on a daily basis. Once that feels normal, I'll slip in an actual movement goal of some sort. Since it was warm and sunny, and there was fresh snow overnight, I took an hour this morning to do this while the yarn was pre-soaking:
It didn't feel like too much of a hardship.
