A lot has happened in the 9 months since I have posted here. First, my camera broke, so for now, I have no pictures, I hope I can add them into this blog later.
Sooo...What's New With Mandy?
I started knitting - I am so happy to have started, and I plan on doing a section on knitting. And I also gained about 10 lbs, my usual winter treat - so I plan on adding a section on fitness and my training. As far as my garden goes, my garlic is coming along super well, my peas need more support, and my tomatoes are dying to get in the ground...BUT all seeds are from seeds I saved! So that is great news. And my sweet Bailey boy is doing great, 8 years old and going strong!!
My plan is to get into shape, have a fabulous garden, make all homemade gifts from now on, and to take great care of Bailey. Let's break this down...
Let's Get Into Shape!
My getting into shape plan includes creating and posting recipies and my weekly workout post to show if I have been keeping up with my plan. I have signed up for a triathlon, 2 bike rides (one is 180 miles, the other 100), and a marathon. That should keep me busy.
Yeah, I know I can do it, wait until I post pictures! I have broccoli, cauliflower, beans, beans, beans, corn, potatoes, peas, carrots, brussels sprouts, tomatoes, basil, leeks, onions, garlic, asparagus, zucchini, lettuce, beets, parsnips, turnups, and who knows what else out there.
I am currently knitting 2 new scarfs. I have to quit giving things away so I have something to give away at Christmas/birthdays...I hope to have a stash of stuff by year end. My proudest work is Susan Pierce Lawrence's Forest Canopy Shawl
Well, my boy is doing great. I hug and walk him daily. Don't have much to report here!
