You Are Midnight

You are more than a little eccentric, and you're apt to keep very unusual habits.

Whether you're a nightowl, living in a commune, or taking a vow of silence - you like to experiment with your lifestyle.

Expressing your individuality is important to you, and you often lie awake in bed thinking about the world and your place in it.

You enjoy staying home, but that doesn't mean you're a hermit. You also appreciate quality time with family and close friends.

Stitch Markers vs live bait!

Well, we hiked up to Lower Lena Lake. Lots of switchbacks, mainly uphill for 3.2 miles! Loved it! While the guys fished for trout i sat on a fallen tree next to the water and knit on socks. It was so enjoyable and relaxing. The lake was full and we stayed until it started to get a bit dark out..which made traveling down the trail through the forest a little tricky but much faster then going up.

manic monday!

Hey all, sore muscles well earned from backpacking this weekend! Made it to the camp site in 1 1/2, not bad for hauling a 40 pound pack, uphill, during the hottest part of the day! That and my meds make me so dehydrated! But my back held up well, being only moderately gentle on it now! Started working on the elliptical again as well...was going through withdrawals not working out!

Hubby left to canada again for work for a few days, daughter is back in school, sophomore year! She is loving it but says the school is so is known as the biggest high school in the state and they have 3 to a locker sharing...ridiculous!

Hey, who likes to knit, have fun getting ideas on projects, etc.....visit here for a fun contest!

Absent and vicadin

OK, not sure on the spelling...but i took a fair isle self striping sock dying class last weekend and then went hiking the next day. woke up sore then by that evening had horrible back spasms. The kind you gasp with every breath you take. (so have never had anything like this before ever!) So went to the good dr's and he gave me pain killers and muscle relaxors. Shortly after taking the first pain killer and a bit of food we stopped at just one store on the way home. I kid you not i completely passed out twice in the store! Freaked out hubby! He said i had that open eye dead people stare and acknowledged nothing..both times. So went home to pass out, not literally this time though. So took the rest of the week off from work, rescheduled clients, and spent some extra time with my mom who was out visiting! We did a few short trips around town, then hubby chaufered us a bit more to play tourist. Was a nice visit! So been knitting some but can't wait to get my dye's mixed too! So I'm around, just a bit dopey!
