The weekend

It was a nice weekend. Warm and sunny. Saturday morning, workers came by to install the custom casement windows for the master bedroom. Bee-yoo-tiful. Also, they finished the job on the sliding patio door - they installed a lock on it so I can now access it with a key.

Then I went to my stitching group for more knitting. We decided we'd have an event for Knit In Public Day (which is really a week). I set it up on my iPad - somehow I'm "the social director" because this is twice now I've suggested an event separate from the regular weekly ones. (On May 27th we're going to Heritage Park for a quilt show).

Saturday evening, since the weather was nice ... I decided to try out a "couch to 5K" running app on my phone. It did not go well. The app couldn't find any satellites. I learned that I really hate running in the neighbourhood where people could see me. I barely ran, feeling tense.

Today, since the weather was also awesome, I went to Fish Creek Park to try it again. The app still couldn't find any satellites. I still hate running where people can see me but I ran more. My calves hated that I didn't stretch first. I didn't do a lot of running, but I did walk quite a lot.

I came home and dug out my Garmin Forerunner, and am charging it.

The Mermaid Garden of 2013 is shaping up. I've been slowly transplanting the green zebra tomatoes outside. Some didn't make it due to chilly weather, but the second batch are doing well.
