The Ups and Downs...

Ok, that's a pretty cheesy title, especially since I've got a photo of ric rac here. Regardless, it sums up the weekend. Kidlet got sick on Friday night. Just started coughing about an hour after she went to bed and then it was crying and coughing every two hours after that. Saturday was good though; we did the usual giga-breakfast thing and then I got to meet the lovely and vivacious Vanessa of Nessie Noodle. Hopefully I didn't present myself as too much of a shy dork! Anyway, we knitted, had warm drinks and chatted. Well, ok, Vanessa knitted and I ended up frogging my circular needle socks for about the 5th time. Sixth time's the charm, eh? I can only hope. It was a pleasure to meet you, Vanessa, and anytime you feel like hanging out with a dorky blogging knitter, drop me a line!

We were crazily productive this weekend. Maybe it's the warm, springy feeling in the air (hello, Global Warming) but we did some cleaning. Hubby raked a truckload of leaves while I worked on my craft closet, cookbook pile and the mudroom. I did our taxes. Hello, refund! Hello, more home improvements! Hello, Ani...please stop with the greetings, this is getting silly.

Made some rockin' good food again this weekend: falafel with tahini sauce, ho'made pizzas, pancakes. Tonight, will be carrot soup. The up and down cycle continues. Kidlet is feeling better, yay! But daycare is closed today due to more sickies, but it means I will be leaving work early. I have a ton of work to do, but hey, I will be leaving work early! Woo hoo! It's like cutting class!

Also, I have made my decision. I will be setting aside some cash for a skateycakes fund. Yes, I will the 38-year-old woman with the broken leg. Skateboard, here I come!

Sorry this post is so disjointed, but this morning I'm on busy overload. Hope y'all had a swell weekend!

Hee hee hee!!! Skateycakes, here I come!!! However, it is NOT warm here. It is COLD. Hellishly cold. Freakishly, ridiculously, toe-numbingly cold. Therefore, I will not be skateycaking it for a few months.

HK said I could break my neck if I wanted to but I had to wear padding on every joint of my body. I'm only thirty five. Do you think falls will be less damaging to my younger body? ;)

KM, you make me laugh so dang hard!

I bet you will be more springy and resillent than my brittle old self. I think your current yoga practice could also be of great assistance (you could just catch yourself and swoop right into chaturanga while I do a face plant!).

aren't we funny- all worried about how we came across outside of cyberspace? I had a wonderful time and would love to get together any time to knit or just hang out...
blogger dorks unite!

The woman who co-owns the studio I go to actually can "fall" into plank pose. She's so gorgeous (in a granola-girl-hairy-legs-and-pits way) that sometimes I go to her class just to watch her move and dream that some day I'll be able to move with 1/10th of her grace.

I think she used to be a dancer. I used to be an academic geek.
