Goodbye Cherry

Thursday, April 19, 2012

Since the beginning of January I have been reading the Cherry Ames series while walking on the treadmill. Yesterday I finished the last book. It was like saying goodbye to an old friend. Someday I will "visit" her again. I remember reading these books when I was a teen. Wow, was that sometime ago. I will be starting the Connie Blair series tomorrow. I made a "pact" with myself years ago that I would only read fiction while exercising on the bike or treadmill - and it sure works at encouraging me to exercise.

I didn't walk on the treadmill today, because I knew I had a gym date with my daughter tonight. We did 20 min on the stationary bike, then a 20 min strength circuit. It was a good workout.

I spent nap time sewing on the sample dress. I made one slight change in the back bodice that saved me from sewing 4 seams. Bridesmaids dress easier than I thought. The difficult part was figuring out how to put two patterns together. Almost finished with the sample dress:)

    Cheery Ames, sounds familiar - a nurse romance series?

    Limit fiction reading to time on treadmill or stationary bike, huh? Good idea. I'm finding I like the audio books on the iPod while I am on the treadmill and when walking ... Keeps me from just watching the minutes go by (sometimes SO SLOWLY!). Not familiar with the ones you mentioned. Am listening to a Jane Kirkpatrick story about an Indian woman & her French Canadian trapper/interpreter husband on a journey to the Pacific (Lewis & Clark type). Very captivating! Congrats on the sewing success!
