Monday miscellany - 15Aug16

School has started up again, and DD is officially a senior now. Time does fly!

What I've been reading... I finished the book on Bavarian folktales, and have just started Promise of Blood by Brian McClellan, the first book in his Powder Mage trilogy. I've had several friends recommend it, and only two chapters in, I'm enjoying it.

What I've been crafting... I stitched a couple more hours on Ink Circles "Tapestry", although last night I had to frog about half an hour's work when I discovered a counting error. Since the design is rather precisely placed, it wasn't possible to fudge around it without it being very noticeable. Still, I'm enjoying the stitch when I have time to do so.

Fumbling toward fitness... I did 201 minutes on the treadmill for 10.13 miles, which is certainly better than the past two weeks. Unfortunately I only made it to Curves once due to last-minute school preparations, but I hope to do better this week.

One Little Victory DD had a great first week of school, and thinks that she'll enjoy this year.
