I also need to get pictures of the other scarves I've worked on up here so that you can see how they are all turning out. I've really enjoyed working on these and getting to know all the ladies that are participating in it.

Update...I can't remember if I ever posted on here about this or not...but...Andy and I purchased some new bikes for ourselves. We are now able to take bike rides together with Sam pretty much every day. I feel as though I am getting a lot more out of these bike rides than I ever did with walking. But I will admit that I never would have been able to ride like I am now if I had not walked the 130+ miles previously. We are on average doing 5 miles a day on our bikes.
Today I took a bike ride with Sam before lunch. I have been trying to teach him some of the rules of the road along with some basic bike etiquette. One of them being don't cut someone off! Guess what finally happened. He cut me off. It was an accident and he felt bad when it happened. When he cut me off his back tire ran right into my front tire and down I went. I only have one small cut on my left hand and I am thankful for that. BUT...my left wrist, thumb, palm all really hurt now. I'm wondering if I didn't sprain it a bit. Also my left hip, thigh and calf are going to have some nice bruises also. We'll see how I feel tomorrow morning after a nights rest on it. Don't know if it will be better or worse.
Good news is that I have already completed 80 miles on the track to doing 100 miles by July 1st! I'm really excited about this. I feel better (except for the bruising I got today) health wise than I have in a long time.

I've been tagged! Camera Obscura tagged me with this Meme last Thursday and I am finally getting around to participating in it.
-At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.
-Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.
2. I love to do anything crafty. As if you didn't already know that. Doing things with my hands and creating is what I love to do and there is still much more out there that I still want to learn how to do.
Now who to tag....I probably don't have 8 people to tag so if you would like to participate then go right ahead. Here is who I am encouraging to participate:

Get to Wal-Mart and see that they are still at $2.99. Okay...a bit better considering that you can go into Wal-Mart, get a gift card, put money on it, and then take it to the gas station where you can get three cents off per gallon. This would take it down to $2.96. Now today, Saturday, when I went there to purchase some birthday presents for the upcoming 4 birthday parties that Sam has been invited to I was that their gas was already up to $3.05! Oh my gosh!
This one was also taken on Friday as I was headed home. And to think that we are not the highest. Oh, and also today I saw one at $3.11.

#2. Excited. Watching my son play soccer last night. Almost lost my voice as I was cheering them on.
#3. Proud. When my son brought home his test papers from last week and they were all A's.
Soup: Name a car you’d love to have.
I would like to have my Minivan back first of all. Then I'll take my cherry red 1967 Mustang convertible or a cherry red Porche convertible.
Salad: Describe your typical morning routine.
Pretty boring, but here it is: I get up around 6:30, get dressed, go to the kitchen, start either coffee or make myself something else to drink, get my sons uniform ready for him to put on, turn on the TV and watch some of the morning news, wake my son up and bring him to the kitchen so that he can get dressed and I can take his "breakfast order", fix breakfast, serve breakfast, go over spelling and vocabulary words while he eats his breakfast, make sure that his backpack is packed and ready to go, take son outside the front door to wait for the bus together, give him a hug and a kiss and send him across the street to get on the bus. This all takes us up to about 7:40. Then I feed the cats and put the dogs outside along with getting myself some breakfast. I will usually go and turn on the computer and check my emails then start on whatever I had planned for that day.
Main Course: Have you ever emailed someone famous? If so, who, and what did you say to them? Did they reply?
Never emailed someone famous.
Dessert: Do you listen to podcasts? If so, which ones?
Nope but sometimes I would like to.

I did go for a bike ride with Andy and Sam after Sam got home from school (Andy's idea) and it seemed to help quite a bit. Hopefully tonight will be much better.

Soup: Which upcoming movie are you excited about seeing?
And of course there is also Shrek the Third.
Salad: Name an item you try to always have on hand.
And of course I try to have my camera with me at all times as you never know when you will want to take that picture and don't want to say, "Gee, I really wish I had remembered to bring my camera along with me."
Main Course: Imagine the most relaxing room you can think of. Now describe it!
Dessert: On a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being highest), how spiritual or religious are you?

Of course the rain that we got was nothing compared to what everyone in MO and KS received. Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone that is going through the flooding. If you haven't been watching this on the news click here.
Well my first sock had to be started over because I didn't like the length that I had chosen for it. Luckily I hadn't gotten that far along on it. I'm hoping to finish my first one soon so that I can start the second sock and then I can say that I have finished my first pair!
Guess I better get off of here and go tuck Sam into bed for the night. He's had a pretty busy week and it's only halfway over.

Here are two pictures that I took at Sam's first night game. They won 2-1. So now their record is 3-2. They have another night game tomorrow night then just two more Saturday games. The first picture I took of Sam throwing the ball back in and the second one was of the sunset after the game. As usual you can click on the pictures to make them bigger.
