At A Snail’s Pace

This past week was not the week for me to rack up miles on the treadmill.  It was one of those weeks when I put in 12+ hours of work each day and was left with absolutely no energy to walk another step.  In fact, I was so tired I didn’t even knit very much.

My total miles since the I started is still less than 10 miles.  At this rate I won’t get to buy new yarn until summer!!! Yikes!!!  Hopefully this week will be much better!

I did, however, read a book.  It was so nice to let my mind wander while my old body recovered for the day.

This is one of the books that was chosen for our book club:

Billie Letts is an Oklahoma author extrodinaire.  As a teacher of lower income students, the first half of the book was emotionally difficult to read (I threatened many times to put it down and never open it again) but my friend who chose the book kept telling me it would get better for the characters and it did.  Billie Letts is a master at creating quirky characters that seem to come to life.  I have to admit that it was difficult to put it down and was disappointed when it was finished.  I highly recommend this book.

So I’m back at my goal of 50 miles on the treadmill.  I’m getting closer to 2 miles at a time which would make me really happy.  We’ll see what this week brings.
