Enchantment of Winter and PhotoHunt

Well my body forced me to take it easy this weekend, I started out with a sore throat on Tuesday and developed into a cough and congestion with fever by Friday.  Which meant I spent Saturday and Sunday either sleeping or stitching.  Sometimes its nice to be forced into relaxing... but not the ideal timeline for me.  I've got to get healthy, I'm running the 10K in Ottawa Race Weekend in two weeks!  I have started getting in my long runs on Saturdays and well that didn't happen, because I just couldn't breathe.

So between naps I managed to get all of the cross stitching finished on sections 1-3 on Enchantment of Winter.  Today I was able to start backstitching these sections and oh my there's a lot of it!  I'm not finished!  At least I'm not leaving it to the end.

In other stitching news I'm looking forward to next weekend!  So is Todd, as he puts it Mississippi Massacre 2011 will be starting Friday evening which means fishing season begins and he's off with the boys... well the girls will play.  I am of course hosting my stitching weekend!  Some bloggers you may be familiar with will  be coming over to stitch with me: Christin, Bonnie, Rebbecca, Kathy, Beatrice and Lynn are amongst the group.  I am so looking forward to my friends coming and stitching with me!

Yesterday was PhotoHunt day, and the theme for May 7th was "digital"

I had to go quite a ways back in the photo archives to find something to suit this theme!  Here's Todd from Thanksgiving weekend of 2007 looking at his big digital watch while we were on the 1,000 Islands Boat Cruise.

I have a busy week ahead but I must listen to my body if I'm going to be healthy!!!

So sorry to hear that you're not feeling well. Hope you're be better soon so that the marathon won't be a problem. If you hear very faint cheering while running...that might be my cheering from way back Australia. 10 k's...wow....that's a long stretch to run.
Your Enchanter looks fantastic. Love those colors.
A stitching weekend That sounds real fun. I wish you and the other ladies LOTS of fun and look forward to see some pics of it.

Enchantment is looking awesome Dani and hope you are feeling better now. I am going to go Google it to see what it looks like but so far it is reminding me of the ice palace in Dr Zhivago :). A great movie by the way. Have a great day!
