A Girl Named Leney is a very talented and creative young woman. Both her sense of fashion and her drive to create inspire me. Leney has been knitting for well over a decade, probably closer to a decade and a half. I bet she started shortly after walking.
I have a couple of lovely pieces Miss Leney has made me. A cowl and a headwarmer. I saw a headwarmer in a shop in Colorado that I really liked, but didn't want to pay the money for something I had a hunch Leney could make better. I sent Leney a picture and this is what she came up with. I absolutely love it! Not only is it warm and cute, but it's also trimmed in my favorite color. I will keep looking for pictures of me wearing these pieces, but in the mean time here are some pics sans me.
In the meantime, check out her etsy shop! She offers most of her items in a variety of colors. If hand knit pieces aren't your thing (though I don't know why they wouldn't be) she also has a variety of jewelry and art as well.

This gets quiet confusing when I have appointments and things to do during the week. I may be calling it Wednesday, but it's really Friday and that means I have Fun Friday at yoga. I'm getting confused just thinking about it.
I'm trying to get out of the habit of making my work fit around everyone else's schedule and lingo. I'm trying to get The Best Man to do the same. The hard thing is waking up on Friday morning to see all the TGIF posts on the web and knowing I have to get through a few more days until "my weekend." But, on the other hand, it's also nice to finish work on Sunday and read the web to see everyone is dreading going back to work.
Yesterday I spent the day lounging in the sun overlooking the beach, shopping online and drinking champagne brought to me by my waiter...I mean The Best Man. I also did a quick work out that I found on Pinterest from The Today Show.
Today, it's dreary again, so I'm glad I got some sun yesterday (though it was too much sun and now I'm itchy and red).

I was supposed to go running today. Instead I went shopping (including birthday shopping and grocery shopping). And now I'm lying on the beach eating M&M's.
There's always tomorrow I guess.
But let's be honest, I work tomorrow so chances of me working out are slim to none. Especially because I will be making dinner for my Valentine.

I went to an orthopedist today to get my hip checked out. Turns out I have gluteus medius syndrome and can ease back into running and continue taking ibuprofen. Great. So keep doing what I'm doing, but slowly add mileage.
"You're a physio, you know what to do."
Well, sure, but I wanted some 'roids. And maybe a PT script since I can't analyze my own running. I didn't get a chance to ask for either of these.
"You're the easiest patient all day."
Well, yes, that's because you did a 30 second physical exam and a 2 minute history.
Thanks, glad I paid my $45 copay.
