Speaking of sewing, here's a peep at the fans in their current home, I see them every time I walk up and down the stair. They have been in this position for over a week now and I'm tempted to refold them and look at a different bit for a while. That has to be a good sign.
Maybe I'll get one of the kids to help me at the weekend.
A pal of mine (No Blog) asked me to post some pictures of my knitting even though I had said there isn't much to see at the moment. So here you go, just a few more rows before I start shaping the shoulders on the back.
And here's the front. It's been a quick knit, and I've enjoyed it. I know I seem to have been going for a while, but considering I have done barely half an hour a day, sometimes less, it really hasn't taken long.
It looks like my morning off today is going to be taken up with chores, some shopping and the all important paddle around the sitting room on the rowing machine. How's that going? Well either my tape measure is stretching or I'm still getting smaller! I've given up hopping onto the scales every week, cause they don't seem to change. I stuck a calendar up on the wall of my walk in and have been recording numbers every Monday, and since I ditched the scales in favour of a measuring tape, those numbers are getting smaller every week.
One thing I want to get done over the weekend is to get plenty of Veggie soups made. Each day for lunch I've been having Veggie soup and a fat free yogurt. I'm sure that has made a difference too. So I'm on the look out for tasty soup recipes. I just tried sweetcorn, that was yummy and I'll be making it again. I'll be making a batch of carrot and celery over the weekend and another batch of carrot and lentil. I'll freeze it all into Loulee size portions then all I have to do is grab it from the freezer before heading off to work. No messing about making sandwiches or a salad box and no concerns about it sloshing over in my bag either. I leave it on the work top in the kitchen and by lunchtime it just needs to be heated in the micro or a pan for a few minutes and I'm sorted. Whats your favorite veggie soup and will you share the recipe with me?
I'm off to boogie behind the vacuum cleaner.
