A New Format

Yes.  I have a new design.  Again.  When I can’t think of something to write, I putter. I’m a big goon that way but my flakey-ness is not to blame this time.  I switched platforms. I’ve been using (and loving) WordPress for years but paying for the hosting seemed silly when I’m certainly not doing this for income. Please be patient with me while I straighten up a bit and add a few knick knacks and doodads – the content is all the same and transferred but some odds and ends got shuffled around a bit in the move.

In other news, I’m starting yet another something.  You may have seen it on instagram.  Despite the upcoming holidays and vacations and winter, I’ve decided (again – I’m noticing a pattern, too) that it’s time to get my butt in gear.  A few weeks back, I had someone accidentally call me hefty (it really truly was an accident and they felt terrible so I’m not going to name names.) I wasn’t insulted mostly because it was an accident but also because it’s true.  And despite not being insulted and definitely because it’s true, it was a wake up call that it might be time to chase down my missing UP band charger and get serious.

While I was at it I decided to brainstorm a bunch of different ways for me to be healthier and then committed to checking off at least 5 of them everyday for 100 healthy days.  It’s 100 days – let’s see how many I can make, shall we?  I probably could have been more aggressive in my goal setting, but again…Christmas, Thanksgiving, vacations, winter.  And that whole, I’m not very good at completing things I start thing, so I’m setting myself up for some wins.  Unbeknownst to me (and I thought I was being so original) #100healthydays is totally a thing.

I’ve also been knitting (I know, that’s the blog these days – new designs, knitting, and wait for it…) and watching lots of television.  Two of my girlfriends got me hooked on Nashville last year and I’m loving this season.  I’m interested to see how the whole Rayna/Luke thing works out.  And Pretty Little Liars.  Oh my word, I was talking to my mom about this show earlier in the week and I’m sure I sounded like a complete lunatic.  Teenagers being stalked by a mysterious all-knowing someone and dating bad boys (and teachers!) as if regular old high school drama wasn’t enough.  It’s sooooo fluffy and good.  Perfect for finishing all the projects.  I have two more gifts done and just about three more on my “it would be nice to have this done before Christmas” list but starting in January was definitely the way to go, minus a few ends weaving and blocking projects.

    • Thank you! And yes, I started watching TV right around the time I started knitting. I think I've watched more television in the last five months than in my whole life leading up to it combined. And we don't even have cable. Also, I was sad to see your blog go. I understand those seasons, and it'll give me time to catch up on your archives, but still sad. 🙂
