Counting Down to Tour


I've been so busy this week with play rehearsals that I feel like I've pretty much run out of things to talk about here! I'm about halfway done the first section of my Recharge KAL shawl, which has been my lunch knitting this week, and I managed another two or three rounds on my TPCT during my (really short) rehearsal breaks, but otherwise I've had almost no knitting time since the weekend!

We've had dance rehearsals until past nine in the evenings most of the week, and I've been trying to read after rehearsals to help get myself settled for bed. This week I've moved on to Ghost Signs for poetry, Blood Oranges for my novel (I read this when it first came out, but now I have the whole trilogy and want to start from the beginning), and Frida Kahlo: Retrospective as a wild card book.

The Tour de Cure is tomorrow, so if you've been holding off from donating, this is your last chance! I haven't been on a proper ride since my accident last week, but I have my full range of motion back and my bike's in working order, so hopefully we should be all set. Worst case scenario, I get picked up by the sweep van and fed juice and orange slices. (That's a lie. The actual worst case scenario involves an ambulance and multiple medical professionals and missing several days of work, but I'm not thinking about that.) I'm cautiously optimistic that I'll be able to complete all 50 miles in about 4 hours, and Anemone will be waiting for me at the finish line so we can go get cheap Mexican food.
