I've been away from the blog so I'm just trying to play catch up here . Life has been good since I finally kicked that nasty cold that plagued me for the last few weeks of 2010 . The weather hasn't been too awful and we have enough snow to break in the new cross country skis . Or rather , to break in my badly out of shape body . The 'goals' for 2011 to eat healthier and exercise more are off to a good start . I've lost 3lbs and am exercising regularly . Not a lot , but it's a start . I'm biking on the stationary bike that has been a clothes rack in the family room for the last few years . Mike and I are going skiing a couple of times a week . And big news , I'm enjoying it and it's not torture any more . The first few outings were definitely on the torturous side and had me wondering if this purchase of skis was wise . I found this fabulous web site that has been the biggest help in keeping me focused and motivated . It's early days yet but I feel like I might actually be able to stick to this and get off all of the meds for high blood pressure and diabetes . If some excess weight comes off , bonus !
The knitting has been going really well too . I've finished three pairs of socks for the Warm Hands Network , finally got Jessey's blanket for the car done , and am working on a hat for Mike . I have to take photos of the socks and update my ravelry page but here's the blanket . It's cosy and warm and best of all Jessey loves it .
Just because I think he's the cutest little baby and I love him to pieces I'll end this post with a picture of Mason . He's already six weeks old ! He's losing that baby bird preemie look and filling out quite nicely . Jessey is quite smitten with him but will tell me to give him back to Max if he's getting too much attention from Omi . Little monkey !
Have a wonderful weekend !
