Three Things Thursday

1.  After my little tumble on Tuesday, I bandaged myself up and went to work.  My ankle swelled up a bit but it seems to be doing decently well.  I ran this morning and my scraped knee just feels stiff because of the large scab that has now formed.  It is funny because I ran all winter in the dark and snow and ice and didn't fall, and now the weather is nice and its light out in the mornings I end up falling on my face!!

2.  I joined a book club - like a real life, meets once a month, book club!  My high school alumnae association organizes one and my friend Kaylie just happened to find the information about it!  They meet on the second Monday of every month so I need to get reading!

3. Two weeks ago I went to a baby shower for Brian's new nephew.  I finally was able to reveal my crochet creation! I crocheted a green baby blanket back at Christmas time but didn't show anyone for fear that somehow Brian's sister would see the blanket and know about it before she got it as a present! So far it has been my favorite thing that I have crocheted!



One more day until the weekend!  Happy Thursday!

Love the blanket!! You are so talented.

What books are you reading? I'm always curious about other book clubs.

wayyyy cool about the book club! i want to join one but can't find one around me...plus i get the feeling that book clubs aren't too popular among the 20-somethings. at least near me :(

Glad you're feeling okay after the tumble. Go figure you would wipe out in broad daylight. :P

Your blanket is beautiful! Homemade gifts are the best.

That blanket looks beautiful! Well done! I am thinking about taking a crochet class so I can learn how to read patterns. I tried teaching myself but it just isn't going so well...

I'm so jealous! I want to join a book club! We need an online one - everyone reads the same book and then blogs about it...
