Anyone Still Out There...

  • Devon can you hear us?
  • Oh, yes here I am!

It has been a busy couple of weeks, with work, knitting, biking, and more knitting. I have completed another KoolHaas hat with another on the needles and one more to follow for me after that. But mostly I am trying to make my way through Rusted Root. I would really like to finish it by May. Wish me luck....

On Monday the 23rd was the Boston Marathon and Jason and I decided to make a morning of it and head out to watch the race. Let me just say, that had to be one of the coolest things I have ever had the privilege of seeing. Here are a couple of photos of the two woman who took first (woman on the right) and second(woman on the left). They were neck and neck. These photos were taken about 3 miles from the finish line. Here is the man who has won the marathon the last 3 years. This makes his 3rd win in a row. He has run 4 times with wins in 2003, 2006, 2007, & 2008 - Look no competition....the 2nd and 3rd winners came quite a ways back.

Winter had finally ended here in Boston (or so I think). Here are the Magnolia trees that sit across our street. They are such gorgeous flowers. They smell so nice. Their only problem is that they fall so quickly and make a hell of a mess. But one must savor them, no?

Now off to knit some more and work on my resume....

I LOVE the hat. Very pretty. As for the running, I would definitely be one of the ones *taking* pictures, not jogging. LOL And sipping on a nice Cherry Limeade. ;-p
