Hello hello! I’ve been pretty busy lately and not much time for being on my computer. I have a few topics I want to talk about though coming up so I will work on getting those posted. For now, a weekend recap like usual!

Busier Than Ever!

What another crazy week!  Nothing exciting this week to share like last week.  The only big thing that I have a picture of is the kilt I made for the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire:

DIY: Shoe Traction Pads

Since I’m still not feeling well, I’ll leave you with this blog post I quickly composed over the weekend. Its totally not health and fitness related but still fun!

I have a pair of boots that I love but the traction on them is nonexistent. I’ve actually fallen in them in the store a few times. I liked them too much to get rid of
