I think I'm recovered from all that transcription I had to do at work.  Luckily I don't have to do those that often; I mostly transcribe the sensitive and confidential interviews/interrogations.

But I did find a new way to torture myself.  Hubby and I started an exercise program yesterday and we started it out by walking and can I just say that my legs are sore.  We went to our local park and started out slow before heading deeper into the park where there are hills, hills, and more hills!  I don't know what we were thinking.  Then there are these steps that are built into this one very steep hill that we walked up and I honestly thought I was going to die by the time I got to the top.  How pathetic am I?  I knew I was out of shape, but for all that is holy I didn't know I was THAT out of shape.  In my defense there were A LOT of steps! 

We thought we deserved to stop for ice cream on our way home, you know as a reward for all the walking and climbing we did, but we were good and didn't stop.  I really wanted some ice cream.

On the stitching front I worked on Mermaids of the Deep Blue.  Here is how it looked when I pulled it out of my WIP pile.

And here's how it looks after a few hours of stitching.

 Tonight we are riding our bikes around the neighborhood.  Destination, Dairy Queen! ;)

Happy Stitching!

You certainly got a lot of stitching done in a few hours! It is beautiful. How nice that you and hubby are exercising together. I hope cycling is easier than hiking up hills!
