    Thanks for the note on my blog.
    Yes I am beginning to knit finally , and I did get that yarn put up yesterday and sorted out stuff from my closet today. I am just doing flat stuff for now, trying to memorize how to do easy stitches with consistency! ( I have had to put boundaries on friends bugging me with messages on the IM's.. I hate having to keep puttin it down. )
    I have a scarf started, but getting started with spark people I really haven't gotten back to it yet..... I will though.
    My goal is to be able to knit socks and I have quite a variety of yarns and a set of the double needles, some excellent books and am a member of too. NOT that I have had time to look at those emails much, but I save them for later and I have obtained some terrific knitting books.
    So, it's all there to use, but I realize I have alot of stuff going on so needed to get things put up out of the way so I can do a bit of everything as time goes by. I really really need a bigger place but am saving to move.
    Things will happen and things will change, including the shape and health of my body as long as I persist.
    It is up to us to do the work however.
    I have a personal battle getting enough sleep, early enough, so thats a goal for me, to get that habit re-developed. Its been a long time since I was in the workforce, so everything got rather turned around, or a child in the house that had to be up for school.
    but its the little things sometimes...... that make a difference and they add up.
    thanks for your note!

    Hey CraftyMoni, I used to live in Eureka, Ca. I spent some time up in southern OR camping and visiting a few relatives who have all passed on or moved away now. I love Crater Lake area!
    Rogue River is nice too.
    I am not sure where Sandy is though. Give me a hint!
    I live in the Adirondack State Park now, in upstate NY, its gorgeous here. Cant wait til the green starts popping up, but the maple trees are now being tapped as its warmer during the days at least abit now, snow melting off.
    Take care!

    Welcome to the Couch to 5k running group!!!! Stop by the message board and introduce yourself to the team. On the team page you will find a thread for each training week. Click on week one and post were you are at in your training. This is a great way to meet others who are in the same phase of training as you. Some of my best friends were in my training week one and we worked through the program together sharing victories, questions, comments, and ideas. I look forward to learning more about you. I will be popping in on the Weeks 1 - 3 training to help answer any questions that might pop up and to cheer you on to your goals! Be blessed! Be a runner!
