Well, it is now the new year and so far my resolution of writing on the blog has failed. It's not the blog's fault, I just haven't been reading in the last few days. Also, the car ride did not quite end Ringworld for me so I have about an hour? less? of the book to listen to. I did hear a nice H. G. Wells horror short story but that was when we were driving around in Clearwater. Tad lost his charger for his phone ::sigh:: so I have to remember to buy one today, which I won't.
Weather is cold finally, I mean, NYC is in the 20s but here it's currently 47F. Why isn't the degree symbol on a number somewhere in the modern keyboard? It's usable, especially when in the science areas. Cold, cold, cold.
With winter finally setting in on Florida I make my resolutions: lose weight, organize the apartment, learn a new skill set, etc, etc. Just all the basic ones. OK, I do plan on losing some weight here, I have to get into better shape. I saw something in one of Anna's Allure magazines (nothing else in the bathroom) about two women who were career women who lost 20ish pounds each. I think it was definitely inspiring as they can do it I can too. I just have to stop snacking at work and getting out more. I might end up blogging more about that, we'll see.
Lastly, but not leastly, I am knitting. There's always been more patterns for knitting than crocheting but I had no one to show me. Look in my links, there is now youtube. Thank you youtube for being full of literally everything usefull and useless on the internet. Cyberseams has a simple, non-vocal video on the basic garter stitch, which is what I'm making this scarf for Gara out of. Then I will get fancy. One step at a time.
Goal: knit a hat and socks for Tad that he doesn't hate.
Progress: Trial period for Gara's scarf, presently at the level seen below.
