Ukuleles. I can’t sing all that well, I dance like a dork but something about them is so darn happy. Maybe this is the perfect outlet to my for music nerd? I tried to play my tiny fake ukes, but the don’t stay in tune and it keeels me. I may have to spend my birthday money from the in-laws on a uke just to get it out of my system. I hate the sound of practicing (years of band maybe?) but I think I am willing to buck up so I can learn how to play “single ladies” on the ukulele.
In other news I have broached new territory into never having to go outside again by ordering new glasses on the internet. I will let you all know how that goes!!! I am hopeful because two pairs with lenses and my extra strength prescription was a whopping 41 bucks. That includes shipping! The folks at Zenni Optical even emailed me right away to confirm my weird RX. I have had two coworkers order from them and they were very happy.
I may have signed up for a 5k. It’s on March 14th.
I ran out of supportive undergarments for my run today. I did run on Thursday and it went quite well. 3.5 miles. Small twinge in my knee and a blister on my instep. I think it was the socks.
Tomorrow it is Sauvie’s island with the dogs and friends. The weather has been so summer like that I have put away all my long sleeve shirts. This might be foolish.
I am working on secret projects and then a new bento box holder for my Mr. Bento. It came with an ugly black canvas thing that doesn’t fit a soda or fruit. I am thinking about either sewing or crocheting.
Today I am pondering whether or not big girls can wear “hip slings”. I hate carrying things with me but I don’t know if I can commit. Craftster has a great tutorial. I could wear it to the bins!
Things have been going quite well up in Portlandia. I almost feel like I shouldn’t say anything to jinx it. Blair is awesome. Our kitchen is almost done being remodeled. The sun has started coming out lately, I may not have to work Saturdays as often. I have been going to the gym at least three times a week. I have lost about 15 pounds. My raspberry cane didn’t die and is sprouting little green leaves. I have daffodils in my yard. You get the picture right?
I started a book journal so that I can record books that I have read with little reviews. I was using librarything but I used up my free space and I just don’t care to pay. I think I may start posting up little reviews here as well. I just haven’t quite found my rhythm with this little blog.
I have started to go to the gym again. I ran yesterday. It was hard but good. It feels nice to be settling back into a routine.
He is out doing a 10k this morning and I am sitting here listening to silly music and maybe finally getting all the laundry done. I decided it was worth the race price to have a few hours to myself this morning. I am teary because my sister and her husband left for home this am and I didn’t want her to go! I got to see some old friends of theirs and squish their babies. I am hoping that I get to see more of them now that they have been over. Elsa was actually very good! I think by the end she was just a little over tired and got noisy but she liked the babies and wanted to mash them with her toys. Margarita is perfect as always. I am unsure of what I want to do today, breakfast of leftovers? I do know I want to see the new Doctor Who today, last week was a dozy of a cliff hanger!
