This Is How We Roll

So this week’s been largely great (few dips here and there, but such is life, right?). Hubby and I are both totally hooked on Pokémon Go! We’ve walked a whole bunch of miles (not entirely sure how many at this point, but somewhere in the range of 100 miles since we started. I do know that I’ve lost a size, so there’s that. *throws confetti* And it’s been beautiful out there. Check out the view from the park where we spent hours a few days ago.

Beautiful, isn’t it?

One downer about the game is that it got hit by a DDOS attack yesterday, and they’ve also been experiencing a lot of errors and glitches (at least, today it’s been really bad). I’m hoping they’ll get everything fixed because it’s a great game and it’s getting people out and moving and becoming more social.

In. Your. Face. Yes, this was one of the glitches I was talking about.

Someone on Facebook pointed out there were charity apps out there that count miles walked and stuff, and once a certain goal is reached they donate to your charity of choice (from a provided list, obviously). I’ve downloaded ResQwalk and have logged a few already. Tried another one but it wouldn’t download, so that was a bust. I do like the idea of it, though. You walk, they pay out to charity? What’s not to like? Anyone know of other good apps that actually work (unlike the two I couldn’t get to download)?

This week also brought a lovely gift from Krysten (remember, my guest from Friday before last?). She sent me this beauty from her shop and it’s even prettier in person. I can’t wait to work with this. It’ll be a shawl and it’ll be all mine! I just need to find the right pattern for it. Don’t worry, I’ll be sure to share the results with you 🙂

it even sparkles!

Thank you again, Krysten, mwah!

As you know, July is Rough Trade month and it’s been a challenge to work through my first story. I’m happy to say, however, that I hit complete on it yesterday and I’ve started work on story number two! We’ll see whether I manage to finish that as well as the third, but I’m going to give it my best shot 🙂

Speaking of which, I’d better get back to writing! No rest for the wicked, right?
