Misc. Plus Local Blogs Go Crafty

One of the perks of the Vibram Five Fingers. . .

You’re not just running:  you’re also picking flowers!  Which reminds me, here’s a local photography blog with a simple-but-satisfying Queen Anne’s Lace Project.  And as long as we’re talking local blogs and craftiness, here’s a blog about family fun in the Adirondacks with a cool window star craft.

Actually, I ran into a friend at the pool today who accused me of rolling my eyes at her.  I was sure that she was wrong until I realized when:  she’d stopped her car and waited for me to run in front of her.  I know it’s wrong, but this is one of my pet peeves.  When people stop I feel like I have to speed up and get out of their way, when I just want to maintain my pace.  It’s not like it’s so busy around my neighborhood that I have to stop for cars much at all–usually I can just postpone crossing the street or I’ll even jog in a little circle.  And she had stopped, feeling bad for me because I’d been “caught” in the rain.  When, actually, I went running because it was raining.  Rain might be my favorite running weather.  So, I’m sure that I did roll my eyes at her.  I’ll have to try to be less obvious in the future.

  1. love the vibram 5 fingers shoes – they are super comfy and supposed to be good for your balance!! People give you funny looks though!

  2. Hi, thanks so much for the mention. I’ll share this activity – we went to Ghent one day last week, down route 9H and made a stop at Loveapple Farms and then 2 miles away to The Fields -the sculpture garden at Omi Art Center. It was a great combination of farmstand (you can pick your own or purchase at the market including cider donuts) with petting zoo, then walking through the amazing sculptures.
