There’s something cool about being out and about at 5.30am. Firstly, it means you don’t have to make the bed. Last one out, makes it, right? Secondly, it’s really quiet. There is something cool about being out and about when everyone else is sleeping. Lastly, and this is the coolest thing, you get to drive over round-abouts instead of around them. Just the flat ones, mind you. Not the ones with plants and signs in the middle. They aren’t as much fun.
For those of you that started on the epic training-to-beat-all-trainings about 6 weeks back… I gave it up. I gave up the running-the-roads-with-10km-as-a goal. I still go to the gym 5 or 6 times a week and I have been known to take advantage of the guy taking the spin class (the sentence does not stop there, carry on…), specifically the way he has the music twice as loud and yells encouragement to the people in the class makes me carry on running on that treadmill while the class is going on in the next room… I’m up to 6km… and on the days I don’t run, I do weights. I have the cutest. little. biceps. If there were a cute little biceps competition, I would seriously win it.
Onwards though. I just found the niftiest little button maker machine thing. Epiphany Crafts. Have you ever wondered what happened to the owner of Lil’ Davis Designs? This is what happened… she started making button makers. I like this page here cos you can play with the button maker. Virtual button making. Who woulda thunk.
A week til I go to South Africa. Busy busy busy wrapping up my next Big Picture Scrapbooking class which opens for registration in the next few days or so… I have my twenty million immunisations which apparently were unnecessary and probably just a revenue seeking venture on behalf of my doctor. The good news is that I am now immune to Hep A, Hep B, Typhoid, Polio and my tetanus is up to date AND I am on a 6 week course of antibiotics incse of malaria and because of that I am keeping the probiotic companies in business as well.
Cool idea for father’s day on Tamar’s blog. I might be giving something like this a go… Actually it’s Paul’s 40th while we are in South Africa.. for anyone attending the event, he thinks he is so darn smart inviting everyone he knows to his 40th… hahaha it’s in South Africa he says… yes. very. smart.
My inbox – has anyone seen it? Me neither. If you emailed me and I haven’t emailed you back, that’s because it’s overgrown with ivy and if i try and go near it, bats fly out. It’s a nasty overgrown, neglected word pit right now, and I apologise.
Time to go – it’s an early morning start for me and I still have a heap to complete tonight… I did want to point you this way though. After 3 1/2 years I have given up Tarisota. I haven’t given up on the girls though. They will always remain some of the most special girls in scrapbookey land.
