I am looking forward to crocheting up some Christmas gifts and have been crocheting a lot in the evenings, it's very relaxing. Before I started doing this craft again I was pacing and edgy in the evening. Steve does not get home until about 7 each evening, and on his days off he watches a lot of TV and I am really not into TV. I was not in the mood to read or watch TV. Then I purchased a subscription to Crochet Today and pulled out my yarn and started crocheting again. I have not made anything that was in the Crochet Today magazine except a few small things. All the things I have crocheted so far have been from other sources. I am making my mom a purple Amineko a cute purple one, her favorite color is purple.
Here is going to be my next project a baby cocoon & Cape. I bought this pattern to make baby Rylan a one.
The first one I am going to make is the brown and blue baby bear, I have the blue yarn but need to get the correct brown, I hope to have this made before the baby gets here. The second one I will make for Christmas, the orange cape, but I will make it in blue.
Exercise..I'm enjoying the NordicTrack very much. I am up to 2 miles daily on a 3 incline. The only motivation I need it seeing how many calories I am burning. It was 275 calories yesterday. My goal is to get to six miles daily. I can see that will be a lot of calories burned and I am really looking forward to making my goal. I have cut back on eating also so I can lose at least 6 lbs or 10 would be ideal. I tend to gain weight in my stomach. The rest of stays small, I don't want to look like a chicken as I age.
2 Cor 5:17: Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!
Until next time, have a great week.
