Still Thinking

I'm still not sure about posting about Christianity and possibly politics, but I do know that I want to post more about my running and my knitting habit. I haven't been running very much lately. I have been exercising though. My left knee just hurts too much when I run. I know this is mostly because of my weight and not doing my leg lifts. I have been getting on the elliptical machine and the recumbent bike at the gym. I really enjoy both machines and I guess the point right now is to just keep moving, even if I am not running. I am planning on getting more into running outside after the New Years. I am just way too busy to even think about starting something new.

And speaking of something new, my knitting habit is coming along nicely. Right now I have three different projects started. I really need to finish my poncho because if I don't they will be out of fashion very soon! I started a pair of socks the other night, but I am just playing around with those. I do want to be able to knit the socks while on the plane to see hubby. The last project I have is a scarf, it was for a gift exchange but I didn't finish in time. I still want to finish it, but I don't know what I will do with it.

I do want to start another project, but I am making myself wait until after New Years. I want to make a baby blanket for my best friend. I already have the pattern (modified slightly) and the yarn all picked out. I have until the end of February to finish it, so I have plenty of time before I need to start it. But I want to start it now, mainly because I think it will be so fun and cute. I have the sweetest multi colored yarn picked out. It is in pastel, but they don't have anything else that is washable and in a color that would match her decor. Personally, I don't like pastels, but she does, and the blanket is for her baby. I think it will turn out sweet.

Jon, I do want to thank you for your comment on my last post. If I do decide to blog about Christianity your type of response is the type I am looking for. Someone who may not necessarily think or see the world the same way I do, but is willing to consider it (and I would consider theirs as well). I just have to decide if doing this is worth sorting through all the "hate comments." Thanks for the input!

  1. You welcome, Becca. And if you want to talk about "hate mail", it sounds like Dooce gets it by the truck load! Love that blog. :)

    And ditto on keeping moving even if you can't be running yet, especially in the winter. Holiday food and winter just kill me.
