187: In Which I Keep Going


I am virtually hiking up here one the Pacific Crest Trail!


Camp CogKnitive is coming on July 25, 2014! (Yeah, I named it...)

Summer Mindfulness Retreat in Camarillo, CA--looking at June. $50 to attend.
Game plan:
Limited to 10-15 people
Mindfulness lessons, meditation, self-hypnosis training by the ocean.
Road trips to local yarn shops.
Road trips to local high-end outlet malls.

Info is here. Come have a fun weekend by the sea of meditation, mindfulness, and shopping with your fiber-buddies! We are going to have a mellow, fun, relaxing few days together to feel good and hang out.

We WILL have a special colorway from BeeMiceElf! THERE WILL BE NO SPECIAL PATTERN--instead, we will all have a chance to do a fashion show of what each of us decided to make from the Camp Colorway.

We may be able to get the Yarnover Truck--we are all working on it.

The Mother Bear Project KAL/KAL is still on!

Post pics of your finished bears here to compete for our prizes.

Deadline is APRIL 1, 2014!

CFR 6 is coming! Oct 11. 2014!
More information here!

Dizzy Blondes: 
No spinning, due to sinus issues.

Just keep moving! Believe that your small steps will actually accumulate into something valuable to you.

Put a Lid On It:
 Raspberry-Chardonnay Jelly, Basil-Apple Jelly, Herbes de Provence Jelly--all from the Ball book. And pickled beets. Happy, happy weekend!


Aw Shoot!

My next race is March 15th--tomorrow! It went just fine, BTW; I placed 5th in my division. I also shaved a minute off my speed.

I am using Runtastic, Fitbit, and MyFitnessPal as apps to support my weight loss and running. All of these are on the Mac platform; I am not sure if they are on Android.

I am now 21.5 pounds lighter than I was on Oct. 15, 2013.

Don't overlook Costco as a good source for exercise clothing.

Something I Really Like: Virtual trail hiking on some very famous long-distance trails. You can link it to your fitbit or just add your steps manually. Awesome! I am about 40 miles into the Pacific Crest Trail right now!


Rattlesnake Avoidance Clinic on March 23rd for my 3 youngest dogs.
I will be at the Retzlaff Spinning gathering on June 7th.
Camp CogKnitive is coming (see above). July 25th!
CFR6 is on Oct. 11, 2014.

Behavioral training in our home 4 times per week. What an experience! Our LG is really advancing!

Agents of Shield is back on Hulu+! Geek joy! I learned of this from the Podcast Knit 1 Geek 2.
