Happy Weekend

Originally uploaded by knitkimberknit
I hope everyone has a good weekend!

I think I will try to scale down some of my fiber stash by doing a good chunk of spinning while watching some Florida Gators hopefully score this week. Perhaps if they quit letting criminals play for their team they will play better. Just a thought.

What are your plans this weekend?

First 5K!!

So after years of wanted to do it, I signed up for the Komen Race for the Cure and Ran/walked it this past Saturday.

It was very emotional for me. seeing so many people supporting people in their lives, themselves, and all of us participating in this event.

I thought of the people in my life who have fought this disease, my mother, Aunt Cheryl, Aunt Anita, Aunt Annie, my co-worker Linda, a family friend of 24 years+ Glenda. And my beloved Aunt Lisa who passed away fighting this disease.

Officially my time was 60 minutes and 56 seconds. However, the ever handsome Jacksonville Sheriff's Officers had stopped us so the 2K could start, we were almost done! I say my time was 56 minutes, according to my math skillz.

I look forward to running this next year, I did learn that I need to practice more incline/decline running.

This is my current favorite pastime. Knitting and Spinning and fun, but all week I look forward to the weekend and my date with the pinball machine. In a perfect world I own this one and about 10 others, and they would all be free to play.

I love the POP when you win a free game, the clicking of the flippers, the thrill of extra balls and on this machine Johnny Depp's voice. yum yum!!

Crown me Queen of the Dorks, but I love me some pinball.

ps. anyone local know where there is a Star Wars pinball machine?

Mo man is cute as ever. His personality really fits in with our family. He loves almost everyone and loves to gives hugs.

He is hard to photograph though. I was able to have him pose with a lot of teasing of treats.

Mo's likes: Chasing crickets, vanilla ice cream, Ruffles chips, kisses, belly rubs and chasing squirrels.

Mo's dislikes: a late dinner time, missing naps, turtles and toys out of his reach.

Currently he can sit when asked and we are working very hard on Shake. He only falls over a little bit now when we try Shake.
