Happy Sunday, I think I have had a very productive weekend so far. Just today, I got a run in. We have some lakes in our neighborhood and I love when I run to see ducks in peoples front yards. Its so cute and charming. I also baked some strawberry muffins. I had some strawberries left over from Easter brunch so I thought muffins would be perfect. I also got some gardening done.
I am really liking the fact that after renting for so long I can do thing with this house to really make it ours. The hubs and I both have races coming up in the next few weeks so we are putting off a lot of our fixing up until those are over. Then we will be painting and planting and who knows what else.
My gardening today consisted of cutting a few dead branches of bushes off and taking out some plants that didn’t make through the winter. I’m also not exactly of fan of a lot of prairie grass as landscaping. I think I will put roses there later. There, I said it. The grass did look a little dead, but really I’m not a fan of big tall stalks of grass as bushes and decoration in flower beds. Sorry to those who are.
As for knitting, since this is a knitting blog. This morning I finished #2 of 3 special knitting projects. They are quick knits. I will tell you that I am knitting them for one of the classes I teach. We are doing a summer knitting workshop so this special project is very well suited towards beginner knitters and a great summer project. I will revel all after the workshop in May.
I really like teaching. I teach once a month at 2 different libraries in town. These classes a apart of their adult ed program so they are in the evening and most of the times when I teach I am tired from a long day of work and really just want to go home. But a soon as I start teaching I get this energy. Its a great feeling helping these people learn to knit and really sharing my passion. Wow that sounds corny but it is true. I love knitting and when I see someone’s eyes light up because they are learning a new stitch or how to knit for the first time it really makes me feel good. I always end up leaving class with just a little more energy.
Well, that is all I have for you today.
I have a race next week and the weekend after so not sure if I will get to chat but look for me on twitter @knittingbf and I’m sure you will find me, I will try to post often.
