Blogging: Tired vs. Hungry - What it's like being knitter trying to train for a half marathon. #halfmarathon   #knitting  
Time seems to have warped on me. All that extra time I talked about in a previous blog post? It didn't last long. It ended up being taken up with one thing: Being tired. Training for a half marathon doesn't necessarily make you faster, nor will it necessarily make you thinner.

Blogging: The Trouble with Baking - Procrastination in flour. #bakingday  
I had every intention of taking today to sit down and blog about all the fun stuff I've been up to. I had a rare day to myself: no obligations and no major errands to run. I walked up to the pool, went for a swim, came home and made coffee, did a load of laundry while I wandered around YouTube, ...

I need Excel help.

I have one spreadsheet that tracks our employee contact info.

I have another spreadsheet that tracks our cell phone contracts by employee.

I want to make it so that, if an employee changes cell phone number, it automatically updates the cell phone column my employee contact info spreadsheet.

Suggestions? Links to help?

I love the simplicity of this.
Could an iron fish, made out of recycled car parts and put into the cooking pot, be a solution to the world's iron deficiency problems?

My mom was told to cook more things out of a cast iron skillet to get some added iron. This is a brilliant design

Waking up at 4:45 am to run 11.36km before work is really not something I ever thought I would do. It's funny how much you can change over time. Here's to small changes daily... and to naps before dinner!

Blogging: Walking the Same Way - A visit with a kindred spirit, complete with antique stores, yarn shops, and wineries. #staycation  
Someone told me once that sometimes, when you're walking though life, you meet people who are walking the same way. And these people you walk with... they usually have their eyes on the same things that you do. My friend, Linette, came for a visit a little over a week ago.

I just saw the event photos from my 10K on Sunday. Turns out that my "running smile" looks a lot like a snarl.

Blogging: Books and Flowers and Running and Knitting - A weekend of yarn and racing. #10k   #knitting  

http://adrienescouch.blogspot.ca/2015/04/books-and-flowers-and-running-and.html
What day is it, anyway? It occurred to me the other day how mixed up my days were when I opened my my timesheets for work and realized that I had been submitting them a week in advance. Apparently, I was in the future... and yet I was still running behind. A busy week does that to you.

For some reason reading your post, about being in the race, had me tearing up too.

And I definitely have a hard time thinking you'll stop knitting or blogging... But if you do, it will be because some other passion has gripped you as equally or better. Not because you chose to leave it behind unthinkingly. :)
