Another beautiful day!

Another beautiful day, another 2 miles in.  Of course I should have gone back out once I dropped off my books, but knitting distracted me.  Okay, out again tomorrow.

Tonight I found a work out DVD I had forgotten about, hooray!  This will come in very handy in the mornings, it's just a 10 min stretch with arms and abs.  Great way to get started in the morning.  I find I always have the best days when I work out first thing in the morning.

So I'm getting my swap knitting done!  I can't believe how productive I've been this weekend.  I have enough stuff for the next 2 swaps.  Now to just put in the filler items; these are fun to search for, but trying to keep with the theme of the group "Itsy Bitsy" is a bit challenging.  I don't want to spend a fortune, but I don't want to come across as "cheap".  No matter, hopefully everyone likes their stuff; they all seem to give positive responses, so I can only deduce all is good.  I really need to start getting some photos taken...perhaps tomorrow.

I also started my first book tonight,  Accordion Crimes, by E. Annie Proulx.  So far, a good read.  I also picked up, The Shipping News, also by same author.  I'll read it next week.

~Okay, off for an evening stretch, a little more reading, a little more knitting, then off to bed.  Five o'clock comes awfully early...

I understand getting distracted from your activities by the knitting. It is always there, staring me down as I try to get things done!
