An energetic day.....

I happened to see that Timeline on Facebook was rolling out in New Zealand first, so I sent Diana a message to ask if it was there. Not yet, she said. And within an hour, it had happened. It looks amazing, I have to say. There will be a lot of photo tweaking going on around the world as it arrives. So brace yourselves, people!

I have been to pilates this morning, and am about to head out to aqua as well. I am on a roll today. A few more presents to wrap and I will be done. And I have also posted all the cards Mum has written and for her friend too. Tick another box. Oops - look at the time. I must go and gather the towel etc.......

I am back. I have identified my stomach muscles. Well, the remnants of them. They hurt. But that is good because I now know they still exist. We did our aqua class wearing headbands with either bouncy red stars on them or bouncy silver balls. We also did everything to Christmas music, which we all sang whole we bounced, until singing was only for the fittest. The rest of us just managed to breathe. We were a picture, believe me, and we are definitely in the festive mood!

And the laughter is so good for the soul.

I fell asleep rippling last night, and so I didn't get a great deal done, but I LOVE making ripple blankets - there is a rhythm which is so soothing. The colours are off in the photo - it is red, not that odd shade, and so is the blanket under it. Becky - see the crochet hook case under the cream wool? I use it every day and love it - please tell Karen! So, hopefully I will get a little more done tonight before arriving in the Land of Nod. It is for my bedroom, so there is no hurry. Next winter will be just fine, because it still has to be painted a neutral colour. Well one of these days. It is on the last page of the "to do" list right now.

I think this is the longest post in terms of time, that I have ever written. More visitors and then supper, so I am going to just press publish and leave it for now. Enjoy the rest of your Wednesdays!

The ripple looks fabulous. Pictures never do the color any justice.

Do you want to come address my cards now?????

Okay, I know what you were wearing on your heads, but what had you gals been drinking? LOL!

I'm so far behind in techie matters that your first paragraph just sounds like an ominous warning to me.

Beautiful colors in your ripple blanket!

Oh, dear, I am not in the mood for another major change. What does it have to do with pictures??

Water exercise to Christmas music sounds like it would make it more do-able!

You've been busy! The ripple blanket looks wonderful. Have a fabulous tomorrow!

Linds - you accomplish so much in a day. I must tell you how much I enjoy my visits here. You have a way of just drawing me in and making me feel at home. It is a lovely gift dear friend.

I wish I could get my act together and go to a water exercise class. I get my exercising by think I have gained back most of the weight I lost. Grrrrrrr!

Your ripple blanket is beautiful! Yes, there is a soothing rhythmic motion to it isn't there?

We are getting snow today, finally! It looks so pretty outside, I tried getting some pictures but they don't do it justice.

65 days of posting, I am SO impressed!!!!! I have been a slacker lately but hopefully now will get back on track! :o)

I see the crochet case and I'll tell her. I use mine constantly.

It looks like that's going to be a beautiful ripple blanket.
