I had plans w/ Marissa to go try out some bikes in Jersey, but that was foiled when a thunderstorm was moving thru and the weatherman clued me in that it wasn't going to be just a passing storm.
I really need to find a bike. I attempted to do a 45-mile ride yesterday and stopped at 25 miles b/c my knees (outisdes) were bugging me. This is getting to be very frustrating! I am vacillating b/w a traditional road bike and a flat bar road bike. After watching the men's and women's cycling races this weekend, the drop bars make sense. Now, I have to wait until Tuesday before I have time to go back and look at bikes.
Instead of making a very large purchase today, I attempted to organize my belongings. I cleaned out my walk-in closet and put together a couple bags of trash. I went and bought some under-bed storage compartments, hoping that will solve some of my problems. All of a sudden, I seem to have a lot of bags/purses (odd since I'm no fashionista) taking up space, as well as my new found addition -- yarn. I have all of these projects in my head that I want to make so I keep buying yarn for them. Only problem is I work full time. I don't have time to do all of this.
Still, with all that in mind, I managed to finish a shell I had started down the shore and had pretty much finished over a week ago. Ok, I had finished it, only to find that I seamed the shoulders wrong and took out one too many lace repeats. So, tonight I finally took out the seams and added another lace repeat. Here is the finished product:
It's more of a coral color. It's not as orange in person as it is in this picture. Not sure how much I like it b/c the gauge shows any little mistake. Still, it's another finished project.
