Be Careful What You Wish For...

Okay, so I complained last week about the weather preventing me from riding my bike to choir practice. Since the weather today was absolutely gorgeous, I made up for it by taking an even longer route to the church and I do believe I will live to regret it! It took me about 50 minutes to make the 8-mile ride, and just when I was in site of my destination, I got cramps in the arches of both feet and in my right calf. To say it was painful would be a gross understatement.

As I’m sitting here typing this, my office is stinking to high heaven from the massive amounts of Badger Sore Muscle Rub I have slathered over my extremities! Not only did my legs and feet get the treatment, but my arms as well…oh, did I forget to mention that when I got home, I worked out on the Bowflex with my current client? Just call me a glutton for punishment! Now if only my body would reflect that punishment by lowering the number on my scale, I would be a much happier camper.

I have now drawn the preliminary design for that baby quilt. Next I will transfer the image to graph paper and figure out if I purchased enough material on Saturday when I lost my mind and went to the quilt shop! The actual templates come next. Stay tuned. I will definitely post a picture of the finished product…after I give it to the proud Mommy!

For those who are still awake (11:00 pm on Monday night) and want to entertain yourself with a decent movie…try tuning in to AMC for “The Bone Collector” with Denzel Washington and Angelina Jolie. It is the first in a series by Jeffery Deaver. If you haven’t read the books, give them a try. If you’re a mystery/thriller junkie like me, you won’t be disappointed. I really want to stay up and watch it for the umpteenth time, but I have a 7:00 a.m. committee meeting at United Way. Enjoy the movie!
