Augusts are always a bit of a sleepy month for me… this August was fun-filled, but still sleepy…
I am cross-fitting as you can see from above… I did have a lot of Personal Records this month! Working on balance and strength… getting stronger is my goal…. I actually managed to make it there 6 days in a row, and by completing all the Girl WODs that week I won a drawing for some free Fit-Aid apparel…fun!
Celebrated a wedding between two of my good running friends…. I was great to see all my friends from our Turtle Running Club…. my good friend Sara and I hamming it up!
My sister’s little girl Della Ray is doing well…growing a lot…. I miss her, wished they lived closer to me… She’s such a cutie and I can see a little personality in her already.
My hubby and I went to Akron for PorchRokr…. its was such a cool outing…
What is PorchRoker?
“Highland Square’s annual PorchRokr Music and Art Festival transforms the verandas of one of Akron’s most historic and eclectic neighborhoods into one-day art studios and concert venues. Thousands of locals and out-of-towners rock out to some 130 diverse musicians and artists, using both area residences and business establishments as their personal stage. The festival rotates each year among four sections of Highland Square to encourage spontaneous interaction among all its neighbors.”
We had such a great time…. the local bands were great and the atmosphere of walking around and listening to different bands was sweet! The food was great too! We got this mega-huge burger from A Twist of Leona…so good! Didn’t get any ice cream though, but we did get all the beer!
I’m knitting up a storm! My turtle running & knitting friend Crystal, and I joined a Knit Along (KAL) with Kristy Glass Knits and Stitch and Hustle using Asylum Fibers Yarn kit… its becoming a beautiful shawl! The yarn is soo squishy! We have our regular Sip & Knit days to meet up and knit together… I love this time!
I finished up the legwarmers/yoga socks I was working on…they are now available at Marigold Salon Spa & Marketplace…you should go…check it out…snap them up!
Well… that about sums up my August….how about yours?
Whats on the docket for September? YARN DISCOVERY TOURS! Yes! Crystal, Jennifer, and I are planning to visit 19 yarn shops throughout North East Ohio….its a knitting adventure!!! and there will be new yarn purchases and patterns and accessories…I’m soo excited!!
Till then love…
