Hi!

Ok.  It has just dawned on me that I am very busy and it is hard for me to sit down and write on this thing.  For that I apologize.  I like doing this, sometimes the motivation is just not there. And if the motivation is not there, you guys will be able to tell.  It has also occurred to me that as much as I LOVE knitting and I know you do to that there is more to life than knitting.  I love to knit, but I don’t do it all day, so this blog is taking a turn.  I’m going to keep the name of the blog, mostly because I own it.  Thank you GoDaddy.  However, I will start to write about the rest of my life.  Cooking (This will not become a food blog) my adventures and mis-adventures in fitness and keeping myself healthy and my various adventures in life and Oklahoma City.

First off, I have been knitting.  I did finish the Endearment Cardigan.  I’m not extremely happy with it.  I haven’t even tried it on.  I may attempt to wear it when we are no longer under a heat warning. We shall see.  Right now I am knitting cat toys.  Lots and lots of cat toys.  My friend Michelle is very involved in a  local animal rescue and has purchased a booth at a Cat Video festival to raise money.  This Cat Video Festival is so fun.  Its held in the evening and outdoors.  There are food trucks and vendors and once it gets dark you are treated to 2 hours of the cutest and funniest cat videos the internet has to offer.  I am unable to make to the festival this year but I am lending my skills and knitting toys to sell to help raise money for her animal rescue.  I am putting catnip in some of my toys and boy do my cats get jealous and excited when I break that out.  I had to put the catnip up high when I am not using it and also put some in a small cloth bag for them.

Can I just say it has been HOT lately.  I am from the desert.  I lived in Las Vegas for 15 years.  Give me 120 degrees in the dry heat anyway, but 95 in the humid Oklahoma summer and I am dying.  We have been over 100 for the past few days and today the high was 95, it was almost nice and cool.  I even got some yard work done.  In between meal prepping.  I love meal prepping. I get everything ready for the week for breakfast and lunch so I have to do is grab in go in the morning.  I prepare healthy meals to keep me on track during the week.  Because I tend to fall off track during the weekend.  However, I hate how on Sunday’s it feels like I am using half my Sunday to meal prep for the week.  Whatever. I am watching crappy tv while I do it.

Ok. That is all I have for today.  I will talk to you all later.  Let me know what you think of the content change.  I’m also trying to to post to many links to recipes, etc., because I hate reading blogs where it feels like one giant ad.

Have a great week everyone!

Slightly obsessed with yarn, love the colors and the feel of it in my hands. Will always have something to talk about regarding yarn, knitting, patterns and everything else related to knitting.
