I just can’t finish this Afghan.  It’s been a month and a half and I just ran out of yarn last night.  Will need 2 more skeins which will take the number of skeins up to 12!  Plus, my friend had a healthy baby girl (I was SO wrong, I was sure it would be a boy!)  and I haven’t even started her gift yet.  Good thing baby’s are small so I won’t be spending a truck load of time knitting my little presents.   Can’t wait to meet the newest addition to her gorgeous family, either.

Other things I have been up to since my last post, are:

1. Last weekend we took Friday and Monday off and travelled to Huntsville to visit some good friends of ours and partake in some winter activites.  We snowshoed in Arrowhead Provincial Park:

We skied /snowboarded at Hidden Valley Ski Hill.  Can I just say since the area had close to a foot of snow dumped on them on Friday, we had simply the best ski conditions we’ve had all season?

It truly was a winter wonderland all weekend long. Sad that we had to drive 4 hours north to get some decent winter conditions, but there you have it.

2. I’ve been training for a 5 km race coming up this Sunday!  My sister and I are competing in it, and no, I do not plan on running with her, running in front of her, since I plan on beating her!  We are a little competitive and share a friendly rivalry when it comes to sports.  She usually has me eating dust when we cycle together. Anyone out there have any tips for a 5 km run?

3.  I did not successfully complete my detox.  I had a terrible bout with food poisoning and was down for the count for close to a week, which caused me to have this horrible relationship with food, especially fish, that’s still slightly in place.  So that alone killed the detox.  I’m eating clean now, mind you.

4. I’d like to give a shout out to fellow Cool Girl Emily- she is celebrating 5 years with her lovely husband tomorrow!  Woot woot!

5. TGIF, baby!
