Climb Climb

So I went climbing again the other day for my weekly climbing with some friends. I ended up doing only 4 routes, but they were a bit more challenging this time. 5.9, 10a, 10d (long), 10a (long).

Not bad though I was burned out and had to inch my way up the 10d since it was a bit laid back and long. It was also nice to see S drive down to climb together since we haven’t climbed together in quite some time.

public shaving

I took a slightly different path to my office today and as I was approaching a cafe, I noticed a man who looked like he was rubbing his cheek with much vigor. As I got a little closer, I noticed a buzzing sound, and as I walked by, I saw that he was shaving. Umm… isn’t that one of those things you do at home or maybe in your car? Hehe.

More Climbing

I went climbing on Tuesday and while I didn’t do any super hard routes, I did do more routes than normal. I climbed 5 routes: 5.8, 10b, 10b, 5.9, 10b. Not too bad. Maybe next time I’ll go for more difficult routes.

More Climbing

Yesterday I climbed on with my friends and boy was I worn out after my 3rd climb. I ended up doing 4, but struggling on my last one. Climbed 5.7, 5.9, 10b (which was really long and felt like a 10c), then did a 10b. Whew. I need to pump me up.

Sirio Pearl Cardstock

So I recently bought a 100 pack of shimmery cardstock which I thought I would use for cards and other crafty projects. I figured it was shimmery, so it MUST be similiar to Stardream. Well, I tested things out with my first project and upon printing, it didn’t quite absorb the ink from my printer like Stardream did. Also, the paper was a bit thicker (110lbs vs. 105lbs) and the quality seems a bit cheaper.

Sure it is a lot cheaper than Stardream, but I would say it’s worth it for the Stardream if you plan on printing on it. If you are thinking of just using any kind of shimmery cardstock for backing and such, then go for that.They also have paper versions of this stuff which should also work well as a cheaper alternative for things like wedding invitations and such.

Sickness Mostly Gone

So since last Monday afternoon, I’ve had some kind of bug. I suppose it’s the flu since I had the bought of chills and hot flashes as well as a 101 degree fever. Yuck. Now, what remains for me is the cough where I often have to clear my throat and try to get that gross stuff out.

Let me say that being home and lying helplessly on the couch all day is not my idea of fun. I’d rather be working. In fact, your body can get quite sore from doing that. Soooo, if you get sick, don’t do that. Get up and walk around once in a while. Even if that means you’re shuffling along to the bathroom or to get a drink of water.
Hopefully I’ll be back to my normal 100% self soon enough. Stay healthy!
