Friday Roundup for 4 January 2013

Body and Mind

Yoga continues to be excellent for me; I’m glad I started, and I’m committed to making it part of my routine. The other development of the week was that we restarted SCA Fighter Practice after nearly a month off, due to the holidays. It’s good to spend a few hours a week having to pay close attention to my body and getting very immediate feedback when I do something incorrectly.

Friends and Family

Gwen’s folks were unfortunately unable to make it out for New Year’s, so we ended up going down to see the Rose Parade with our friends Emma and Matt instead. They, like me, grew up in the Midwest, so the notion of wanting to sit outside to watch a parade on January First was exciting. (We also learned that Emma has strong opinions regarding marching bands, specifically: More Sousa and less gold lamé.) It did mean we called it a night early on New Year’s Eve, but I was fine with that.

Create

Kind of a slow week in this category. I’ve decided that I want to generalize my knitting-related activities into “making”: doing something that produces some tangible output, be that knitting, weaving, cooking, or — what I’m doing right now — coloring in a coloring book.

Absorb

Currently Reading: Being Wrong: Adventures in the Margin of Error

Things I’ve Read:

This Week’s Soundtrack: Theatre Is Evil, Amanda Palmer & The Grand Theft Orchestra

Professional

Sort of spinning my wheels here, trying to figure out what I want to do next.

The Weekend

An improv show tonight, a party down in LA tomorrow, and starting some armorcrafting on Sunday.
