Its that time of year here ….the days are getting warmer, I’m wearing a light raincoat to work, and thoughts are turning to knitting summer sweaters and shawls, and bailing on more winter focused projects (which looks pretty much the same as it did in that picture). It is also that time of year when people think about shorts, tanks and bathing suits. And diets. So when I saw this over on Kim’s blog, I had to join.
This just seemed like a good idea – 12 weeks, and I can do whatever I want to try to get a little healther, a little lighter. I can do that. Just not tonight – homemade pizza. But I’m going to the gym tomorrow, so I’ll just make it up then. It is always nice to have some company on the path to being healthy, and I’m looking forward to doing this. I’m trying to eat healther, and go to the gym more often – and get ouside and move. Maybe that’s yarn shopping, maybe golfing – but its not just sitting around eating M&M’s.
But before I go completely heatlhy, and not to be contrary, I thought I’d share a recipe with you. We made it last weekend, and it was amazing. Completely unhealthy, and so so good. Cieara had a piece and promptly told me it was her favorite dessert – ever! No pictures (we really ate it that fast!)..but how about a link – English Sticky Toffee Pudding. Its not really a pudding (as Americans know it), – it is cake – with toffee sauce. And really amazing – and pretty easy to make. Just not on any diet that I know of since it has so much butter. I really recommend it – and then I recommend you feel sort of guilty and go to the gym (just like I did!). And now I’m trying to resist making it again.
I took a break this week from my lace scarf (I can’t believe how long it is taking to make this – damn! I’m so bored with it!). This is a Waffle Knit dishcloth – and it was a nice, fast knit. And in very spring-like colors. And it satisfied my need (for now) to start something new – so back to the knitting basket projects for now. I’ve been distracted from knitting by Facebook, and I need to stop logging into it and get some projects done…especially the lace scarf.
Its going to be a rainy weekend here – and I don’t have many plans but Larry and I are going out to dinner tomorrow night. Today is the anniversary of the day we met – 14 years ago. I forgot, he remembered (oops!). Seems like so long ago – and like just yesterday.
OK, pizza is ready – have a great weekend!
