I went to hockey class #3 last week. I still stink. Superman dives still kick my butt. This class, we were on the full-size rink, and at an earlier time slot. When it came time for scrimmage, I noticed something. The instructor usually divides up teams based on jersey color, as that’s a pretty easy way to for us to identify our teammates. Usually, it’s three teams: white jerseys, black jerseys, and other-color jerseys.

I just signed up to take Hockey 101 for a second ten-week session. It’s expected you’ll take the class two or three times before moving on to Hockey 102. You must be able to do a quick lap around the ice under control, skate backwards, and perform a hockey stop on at least one side before you “graduate” Hockey 101. In my case, I may need to take a LOT of Hockey 101 sessions.
I started Hockey 101 classes. I’ve been a hockey fan for years, but this was the first time I’d donned the equipment myself. In fact, I’ve rarely put on skates. I’ve gone to ice rinks a few times, and slowly circled the ice, but this was definitely a new experience. Hockey 101 was advertised as “for total beginners; adults who would love to learn how to play the great game of ice hockey but have never skated before.” I’m an adult, and I’ve barely skated before, I figured the class was perfect.
I’ve had a few crochet projects I’ve been working on F_O_R_E_V_E_R. I’m making a huge blanket, a motif scarf out of the scraps of yarn from my poor demised rose wrap shell, a coat (yes, I’m attempting to make the same coat yet again, despite my earlier failures), and a delicate sweater using a very lightweight yarn and a very tiny hook.
So, it’s not that I haven’t been crocheting that I haven’t posted anything on my blog in some time – it’s just that I haven’t FINISHED anything! Fortunately, I did take a few breaks to crank out some “instant gratification” projects. (Fun, fast, easy crochets.)
Ever just don’t know where the weekend went? There’s days where I get so much done, I even amaze myself. The past two days were not those kind of days, not at all.
Friday night I worked late. I know that. I got immersed in a project and time got away from me. I didn’t leave work until 10:00, which meant dinner with my boyfriend became late night breakfast at a 24/7 pancake joint.
