Friends’ Baby Blanket
Daughter’s Dragon Hat – (mitts to follow)Personal
My husband and I are both turning 40.
It’s our 15th wedding anniversary on May 6th so we’re going to France the first two weeks in May. I’ll be leaving my children for the first time since they’ve been born. My husband’s father and step-mother have been kind enough to offer to come and stay with the kids. They really are wonderful people.
I got my yellow belt in karate! My grading was on January 29th. I will be getting a yellow dragon tattoo (my first ever). Yellow is for the belt and the dragon symbolizes Goju Ryu karate.
I’ve dropped yoga because of time constraints. Karate takes a decent amount of training time. And I’ve started kobudo; gee, do I love martial arts or what. That will definitely take me a lot longer to make progress in; working with weapons changes a lot. I do miss the benefits of yoga for my back. Karate just can’t do that for me, so I practice certain yoga stretches and home and that seems to work. Like I said, a milestone year.
