188: Clown Car for Dogs


And, meanwhile, my son turned 8!

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 are up to 9 people.

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!

A good video on how to arm knit is right here.

Dizzy Blondes: 
No spinning, due to sinus issues.

Take complete ownership of your mind. You CAN manage your thoughts and your sleep and your bad habits, unless you have some physical issue interfering. You CAN move mountains when you believe you can change your thinking and your behaviors.

Put a Lid On It:
Quiet in the kitchen. No time to pickle beets, so cook 'em overnight, peel and slice, then place in jar with oil & vinegar in fridge.

Aw Shoot!
I ran the Natasha Watley 5K in mid-March and shaved a minute off my 5K time; I placed 5th in my division.

Hey, Look! Here is the lighter me who now fits into clothes that I haven't been able to wear in 11 years!


Something I Really Like:

Zombies, Run! The most fun I've had running in years! For Mac or Android.
