Getting really excited about Sheep in the City at the end of the month.

I’m looking forward to the classes I’ll be taking.

I’m also looking forward to the vendors! Saving my pennies for new yarn. Yeah yeah. I don’t need new yarn…but…well…knitters understand.

I’ve been thinking a lot about food and weight this week. Trying to change your habits does that to a person.

I realized that part of my problem is not being able to imagine myself anything other than heavy. I’ve been overweight for so many years that the very idea of ever being slim is mind boggling. It’s just a fantasy for me. How can you imagine something that you don’t remember being?

It’s a mind-set that I’m going to have to work out of because it doesn’t lend well to success.

Anyway…

It’s been a fairly busy week around here. I was in Peoria for a grant workshop yesterday and will be there again tomorrow for a training on the Outreach module of our circulation system. In plain language, I’m learning about the part that will let us have books and other things at our building in town…and still keep track of where they are. Yay for college vehicles, so I’m not burning my own gas all the time.

I did get to SnB last night. Things were pretty low-key and I got a slipper almost finished. One of the women in the group recently was diagnosed with cancer. So some of us are working on projects to give her as part of a big gift basket. I’m making some slippers. I also picked up a couple of books that I hope will cheer her up.

Although I shouldn’t stay up late to read, I keep picking up good books…or at least interesting books. I finished reading The Host this week. This is by the same author who wrote The Twilight series, although this book is not a YA book. It was a fairly predictable story with few twists, but I still enjoyed it. If you’re not into sci-fi chick lit, I wouldn’t recommend it.

Outrageous!
