I convinced Cristi that it would be loads of fun to walk with me. Yes, I am very clever for this since there was no yarn shopping involved.
I like to knit in hotels! I knit a sleeve!
We met some really nice volunteers who gave us snacks and water!
Water? I drink COFFEE!
Then we went through the arch and walked. I am generally against exercise, though I need to get out and do more. We had a nice walk. Not too slow, not too fast. We learned about the 3 year plan of some ladies to get out of debt. And the hopes and dreams for 10 year old girls. We are having a bit of a drought here in the Carolinas. Lake Lynn, where the walk was held, definitely shows signs of it. That down there, well, it used to be half a lake.
The walk went really well. I got a GREAT interview with the National Walk Coordinator that will be on the podcast this week!!!
We had a great time. After the walk we went and had lunch (super healthy lunch of McDonalds) and came upon this pumpkin patch. I want a pumpkin, but I won't be home enough to enjoy it!
So it was a good day and we had a great time!
Now, what you really care about...the drawing. OK - I have the prizes listed (there are a few things that haven't made it here yet, so I didn't draw for those, I will as they arrive - I don't want to draw and then them never make it and get people all excited about getting stuff!). I will be sending emails out to all to get addresses, etc. and then I will make one big post to announce all the winners and what they won! I will be in Orlando next week and have about 400 knitting and other things to do before I leave, so be patient, it is all coming. I promise.
