This has not been a good week.  I've had a really bad sinus headache, a stomach upset, and the anxiety is feeling somewhat overwhelming right now.  I'm feeling like this guy again...

The weather outside is beautiful, but I just haven't been able to get myself outside to enjoy it.

I've been knitting, but can't focus on doing much more than a garter stitch.  Still, the yarn is yummy and the motion of knitting is soothing.

Happy St.Patrick's Day!

Have a happy (and safe) day!  

And don't forget to have a pint of Guinness tonight!

It's been how long since I posted?

It's already mid-March, and I haven't posted since the end of February!

So what have I been up to since March came in?

I've been feeling kinda like this:

I'll be very glad when the sun starts coming up earlier in the morning, and the SAD isn't as bad as it has been.

I have finished both of the Baktus scarves (but haven't sewn in the ends yet), finished a Hitchhiker scarf (but haven't sewn in ends yet or taken a picture of), started another Hitchhiker scarf for the Sister.  No sewing done.  My quilting muse seems to have deserted me...or the knitting muse has run her off.

Penn and I started taking the foundation agility class again.  We've only done one class so far this session.  He was neither the most vocal or least obedient dog there...I'm counting that as a win!

I started yet another diet (I am facing fifty and would like to do it as a smaller person!), and I also registered to walk the half marathon in September.

I started training for it on Sunday.  I did 3k before my ankle started twinging.  At the pace I set on Sunday, it   would take me four hours to finish!  I have lots of time to train, so it will be better.

I had my friend take a picture of me in my exercise gear.  It's inspiration for me to lose the weight and tone up.

Gah!  Look at that belly!  It has to go!
