Birthday Bash

It was my birthday this past Sunday, and I was the lucky recipient of love from family and friends along with tasty meals and gifts. I can't quite decide which gift is my favourite, surprisingly no knitting tools or fibery gifts were involved, but that's okay. I can live without knitting, really,...okay, maybe not, but it's still okay. My new Garmin Forerunner 405 keeps me in check with my running pace whenever I train (4x per week), and then my other gifts are pure enjoyment, not that running isn't enjoyable, sometimes it hurts, or it rains, or there's a hill. :)

I know I promised to show you my latest knitting projects, they are coming along. I've been working on 3 sweaters altogether, one from Vogue, one from Interweave Knits (Michelle Rose Orne's Autumn Asters) and my own creation which I plan to call White Water Rapids. Plus, I've added a new sock design to the mix too, and I haven't figured out yet what to call it. With so many projects on the go, I haven't had time to scan anything and will make up for that in the next few days. A blog without pics is just way too boring and I don't want you to fall asleep.

So, here are some more pics of the birthday goodies. I am a huge Tomb Raider fan and the following games have been added to my collection, as well as a new Seafood book for my cook book collection and a boxed set of Extras for my dvd collection. I suppose I have a lot of collections, at least they keep me busy and out of trouble.

Finish Line

I couldn't resist, here's a finishing photo of my running buddies after the Nissan 5k & 10mile race. Photographers were snapping pics and our group was chosen for a finish finale. See, we really do like running. :)
