A brief non-crafty interjection

You might know that one of my many hobbies is powerlifting. I usually don’t share much about that here, because it’s nothing to do with crafting, but just this once I’m so proud of myself that telling only my IRL friends isn’t enough!

Lookit me go! I don’t even care about the stupid faces I pull 😉
