Treadmill For Sale

Freemotion XTR90 Treadmill

I purchased this treadmill at Costco in July, 2011. I used it for 2 months and injured my foot. I keep thinking I’ll be able to use it again soon, however after a year and a half, I’m admitting defeat. I would like to see it go to a good home where it will get some use.

Originally paid about $750. Asking $350

Recently I read this post by Mark O’Connell and it got me thinking. Yes, that is dangerous.

I was going to post the following as a comment on Mr. O’Connell’s original post, and decided against it. If anyone’s blog is going to be opened up to a spam storm, it may as well be mine.

The advent of photography led to the lament that painting would be unnecessary. That isn’t the way the story unfolded. Photography freed up painters from having to be tied to a purely visual reality. Photography’s existence doesn’t prevent painters from creating hard-edged realism, but the ability to photograph a subject alleviates the pressure to do so. The artist’s freedom to infuse what is seen with what is felt opens the medium to the possibility of deeper and more complex expressions.

When I met my husband in 2004, I knew we were kindred spirits when I discovered that each of us owns the same 1957 edition of Discoveries and Opinions of Galileo. Without books and CDs littering our homes, how do we recognize each other as potential friends or lovers? Should we compare Amazon Wish Lists?

We have a library in our home and we continue to add to the shelves and stacks on a regular basis. I also have several ways to read e publications at my disposal. I doubt I will ever stop wanting to own my wonderful collection of vintage knitting books or that my husband will ever part with his astronomy reference books. It would also be impossible for me to quantify the amount of entertaining discussion spurred by the discovery of my parents’ marginalia in a decrepit volume. Besides the stories they hold, the books themselves are a part of our personal history. Much of the experience of encountering these works is the aesthetic pleasure of perusing them. At the same time, I love being able to finish an embarrassingly sappy novel and, despite the four feet of snow outside, slip right into the next volume without risking life and limb.

I think of books the way I think of food. There is food that is mere sustenance. There is food that is high art. And there are a lot of meals that fall somewhere in between the two. I am hopeful that the ability of everyone to publish an ebook, will liberate gifted writers, publishers, and book designers to focus their talents on evolving the art form of printed books. For the time being, my rule of thumb is that any book I would be unlikely to reread or lend, I will buy either used or as an e publication.

Mark’s been busy making Russian spindles. I’ve been busy trying to photograph them and list them for sale on etsy. I swear, he can made them faster than I can post them. Before he went on this Russian spindle jag, he was busy making top-whorl spindles, which in my opinion, are significantly easier to spin with, but no one asked me.

We were only at Rhinebeck for a couple of hours this year, but it did seem that among a certain crowd, support spindles were all the rage.  Maybe it’s that there are fewer people who make them? Or maybe it’s just the latest thing. I’m not sure. I do still love sitting on the couch, spinning with a spindle that isn’t going to hit the floor (followed by a couple of cogent words). I’m also a bit amazed that with just a bit of fluff and a slight flick of my fingers, I can create the finest lace weight yarn ever.

One of my favorite Russian spindles Mark has made thus far is this one. It’s turned from black walnut that grows like crazy all over our land (and we have the blasted walnuts to prove it. Want to see the dent in the hood of my car?).
Russian Spindles

Every time Mark makes a new spindle, I am amazed and I want to keep just that one. I’ve got baskets of spindles now and I’m actually excited to share them with other people who will enjoy them as much as I do.

I want to keep this brief because I’d like to have a little bit of time to knit at the end of this, my first day back at work after a week off. But before I go, I’d like to say ‘hi’ to Alisa and thank her profusely for spending some of her precious vacation time with me. I had the honor of introducing her to Webs (we call this a win/win situation) and we had an afternoon that included Thai food, ABC Carpet & Home, and Purl Soho. Am I lucky, or what??? All this fun made me miss my Wisconsin buddy Lois so much. She was my usual partner in yarn crime until she moved to the land of Cheese Heads.  For you, Lois, I’m sending my best wishes from NYC, the land of fine taste and high art.

New York with Alisa, 10/22/2010

Last year was the first year I’d taken a class at the Rhinebeck Sheep & Wool Festival. Taking the class last year really made the whole Rhinebeck experience so much more than yarn shopping mayhem. It gave me the chance to connect with people who are as fiber obsessed as I am.

As I started to spin more this year, Mark has been humoring me by making spindles. Now that my house is filling up with spindles, it made sense to spend the morning with Russian spinning and Orenburg lace knitting officianato, Galina Khmeleva. She’s an energetic and engaging teacher and I would recommend her classes highly.

Russian Spinning, Rhinebeck

Despite the wet and windy weather, my soul was filled with sunshine, rainbows, and unicorn kisses, just from driving into the Dutchess County Fairgrounds parking lot. I love wandering around as the vendors are setting up, watching all of the dyed-in-the-wool fiber fiends swathed in their hand-knitted wardrobes. I’m glad I got this taste before the weekend because we won’t be heading back to Rhinebeck early tomorrow morning. The NYC Pen Show, which is also held this weekend, has been calling Mark’s name since last year…

Fortunately, we won’t have to consider who will win our personal version of ‘rock-paper-scissors’ known as ‘pens-fiber-woodstove’.  Now that the nighttime temperatures have dipped below freezing, relining and repointing the chimney (and the subsequent heat from our woodstove) wins!

YeeeHa!
