Sunday Salon: Rain Day

Sunday Salon

Hello, all!

I had planned today to take a bike ride to a farmer’s market, but at dawn, there was a wicked thunderstorm. Now it’s a real rain day. I really needed the exercise too. My running has almost been non-existant, and I have a 5KM race in two months that I want to make good time on. I don’t like running in the summer though.

In book news, I am trill trying to read a giant biography that was interesting when I was in China, but no longer. I think I’ll switch to Kim today and see if it works. I’m am starting to itch for fantasy or lighter books though. I’m looking at the Song of Fire & Ice series. Hmmm.

Crafting: Lost all my knitting mojo. I have a giant coat that I started in the winter, but I’m just keen on knitting these days. I still like browsing knitting books, but no desire to work on my stash. I may work on a t-shirt bag though.

What are you doing this weekend?

    I know what you mean about summers. They sort of have you put everything on hold in the opposite way of winter! I’ve not wanted to work out much at all, but I’m trying to make an effort over the next few weeks (I’ve got a race in two weeks whoops).

    And the knitting too! That’s a total winter thing, curl up by the fire and knit away 🙂

    Have a great week!

    Did you watch the World Cup final? I guess I found the games a bit dull with little scoring but I watched parts here and there. I was more into the Wimbledon.
    The heat is pretty intense these days. Good luck on your running. I’m trying to bike a few days a week. cheers.

      Hi Susan! I completely forgot to mention the World Cup, but yeah, I watched it almost religiously. I was happy that Germany won too. I missed out on Wimbledon this year because of the WC, and I actually don’t have many channels. Hope you’re having a good week. Cheers!
