I’m sorry; did I blind you?
My new kicks are the only positive since today’s run was half-assed. My mind and legs weren’t into it unfortunately so there were big chunks of walking. I could have pushed through it but I just gave up at times. Chalk it up to any of the following: Fatigue (Thank you, BTW, for your sweet concern.) catching up to me from the read-a-thon weekend, overheated from wearing a black long-sleeve, or boredom from that familiar mile stretch. So I’m soothing my perfectionist soul with some Duran Duran from my Synth Pop playlist and an omelette filled with baby kale and pepper jack cheese.
If you were curious about how our split pea soup had come out a few days ago, check it out:
I seriously need an immersion blender. I had to use our Nutri-Bullet four to five times to blend the slow cooker results. Princess Jellybean commented the first night, “I love it!” In other words, the soup is hella good and Mama chose the right recipe to make for dinner.
I finally got out to JoAnn’s to pick up a 16″ Takumi Clover 10.5 circular. It was the last one. After having to frog and start over again – watching the last of “The Good Wife” season 6 and knitting a new lace pattern for the first time didn’t mix well – I’m caught up:
This is holiday gift #3 in Madelinetosh Chunky in Tart. Don’t you love the drama of this color? It makes me think of queens or a night at the opera.
Okay, time to go. After a hot shower, I will curl up on the couch for some knitting therapy. Oh, if you still haven’t voted on yesterday’s poll, there is a little over an hour left before it closes. Have a solid Thursday.
