I’m currently somewhat MIA and cannot upload photos, but I’ve finished Eileen, and I just love it. The size came out just the way I wanted. I haven’t been able to give it a final blocking yet, but hopefully I’ll have some photos for you soon.
So now I’m back to the Alpine Lace Shawl and getting started again on Tubey, while I think about whether or not I want to try sneaking in another summer top before the end of the season.
I’ve also been able to cross off one of those “things to do before I die” items off my list. I finally got to try some raw milk, which I purchased at the Real Foods market in Heber City. This is a really small store, but they have a larger store in Orem, and supposedly they’re going to open a store in Salt Lake City within the next year. I hope they do! They have some really interesting items that I haven’t seen in other stores. I really liked the milk, by the way. It does taste different, though I’m not quite sure how to describe the difference. I’m not really much of a milk drinker – normally I only use it for cooking, or on the rare occasion that I have cereal. But I did think this was quite good, and Larry, who does drink milk, agreed.
I must admit total defeat in another area, however. I have given up on the 100 push ups program. I really struggled with Week 4, and ended up redoing that week. But then I just couldn’t manage Week 5. I was also getting pretty tired of having my arms and back ache all of the time. But at least I can do a lot more push ups than I could when I started the program. And I’m still planning to include them in my exercise routine, but just not at this level.
