What happened here?

I've been doing something that might surprise you. Of course I am continuing to eat and exercise the way that I should (sometimes, well most times, actually), but I am also doing something very shocking with my time of late.

No, I haven't finished that blue mitten. No, I haven't been working on the Myrtle Leaf Shawl (don't ask, because it is painful).

But . . . . .

I did this

And this

. . . . . and I've been actually starting something with this

. . . . and here is the start of it

The "it" is a vest for my dad for his birthday (last month). It will be simple (at least it looks like it will be) and he likes the color.

The pink (Sundara-cherry blossom sock yarn) is the swatch for a pair of knee-high Jaywalkers that I plan on knitting for me. We shall see how soon those get done though because most things for me don't get finished for a very long time.

Today it has been doing this

And that makes the sidewalk look like this

Soooo, I'll probably have to put in a workout tape when I get home tonight rather than going for a walk or a bike ride. Which is probably for the best. Yesterday, I went for a bike ride in the morning while gale force (maybe not quite gale force, but close enough) winds blew at me. It was difficult to say the least.

Well, it isn't raining anymore at the moment, but it is supposed to rain more tonight and tomorrow. See ya!

Oh, I miss the rain!!! Nothing beats that smell in the air just after rainfall, or the sound of damp squelching underfoot....dang NorCal summer, we probably won't see any rain for months now.

I like the new project too- the pink is really pretty!
