I received my copy of Stephanie Pearl-McPhee Casts Off last night. Our Stitch & Bitch did a Knit Picks order and that was what I ordered. I worked on my sweater a little and read the book a little. Then I left early because it was really cold in the room at Burger King. I was home in time to watch The Closer and in bed shortly after 10. Yea!
I went to see The Little River Band Friday night with my friend Debbie. They sounded great and it was very reminiscent of high school and college. I was so tired. We left at the intermission. I was ready to go and Debbie was, too. But the concert was great and the venue, the Phenix City Amphitheater, was great. You can see the river and the bridge and there were boats and trains and kayaks! I haven't been there in years. It's really polished and nice. It'd be nicer on a day that's not in the 90's, but we really enjoyed it. Next time I'll take a chair and some knitting. :)
Have a great week.

There was a lot of grief last week. I cried for several days in a row over Scarlette and my friend from church. There was a very nice funeral on Saturday. Over the years there were many times at drama rehearsals that Cindy would come up to me and say, "Would you go run sound?" It happened a lot. They would need microphones and there wouldn't be anyone to run them. Saturday I arrived for the funeral and sat down in a pew. After only a few minutes, I got a tap on the shoulder and was asked, "Would you go run sound?" It was fitting. Running sound one last time for her. She will be missed, too.
I'm still trying to learn to knit socks. I have still been getting up in the morning and exercising. I'm eating my fruits and vegetables. Ready to see some results. Come on fat, get the heck out of here!

There's other sad news that I'm just not ready to share yet. I'll get to it later.

Speaking of aerobics, I have been getting up in the morning and exercising! What a great idea for someone who needs desperately to lose weight. I have all these exercise videos that I'm just sick of. So, here's my plan: I have the Digital Cable. On the Cable is "On Demand" - or pay-per-view. There is something called "Free Pass On Demand" - free-per-view. There are exercise videos on there that they change out periodically. There are lots of videos. I shouldn't have to repeat many, if any. I think it's a good plan.
I went to sock class with my knitting group on Sunday at the library. It was very interesting, and challenging. I know I'll eventually get it; but boy, it's definitely not mindless knitting.
Tonight's Dinner Recipe (modified from Fitness Magazine):
Garlic Chicken and Zucchini Pasta
1 cup whole wheat pasta cooked
1/2 cup cooked chicken strips (bought the Perdue strips at Publix) (Fitness Magazine called for shrimp - I don't do seafood.)
1 thinly sliced zucchini (used my box grater)
1 teaspoon dried basil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon olive oil
Make It: Cook Pasta. Mix hot noodles with remaining ingredients. (I also steamed the zucchini. I don't like my zucchini to make noise when I bite into it.)
It was good. I made a double recipe so I can take it for work tomorrow. I also grated a little parmesan on top of it.
Okay, my pulse rate has returned to normal. Y'all take care.

So cool! I love postcards.
Of course our lunch out followed me sleeping an hour later than I do during the week and getting up to a leisurely breakfast of grits and soy sausage with grapes on the side. Ahh!! I'm beginning to remember what weekends are about.

A lot is going on at work. We're very busy. The station is in transition with new management and lots of changes are happening. It's exciting, a little nerve wracking, and who knows what's coming next.
All right, I'm getting off the computer now to go knit. Gotta work on that sweater.

Babysitting with Catherine was fun Saturday except she got jealous when I talked to her brother, the new dog, the cat. She was just having a night when she wanted Miss Holly all to herself. Here are her nails:
It's Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear in Purple Potion. Very irridescent. Here she is where she wouldn't pose for me with a smile like I wanted and I asked Adam, her big brother, to make her laugh:
I love that picture.
Yesterday was a lovely, lazy, rainy Sunday. After church and lunch and groceries from Publix, I came home and read the paper and watched tv all afternoon. Ahhhh!
So now, after a long day at work, I'm off to knitting. What a great way to start the week!
