Goin to go get my 3's today!

I'll make a quick trip to the LYS today to get my size 3 needles to start Colin's sweater. Hopefully I'll have something to show for it next week. I just can't wait to get started on it. I love knitting easy. My brain needs a break.

Here is one of my miniature sunflowers. I planted a million sunflower seeds and the birds and chipmonks dug them up and ate most of them. I actually watched them do it and there wasn't anything I could do about it short of putting some kind of wire screen over top of them until they germinated but I wasn't into going to all that trouble. Anyhow, this one survived.

I'm sure you're wondering how the gym is going. Here is the thing about not exercising for 25 years and then jumping into it full force... I'm just happy to be alive. I had three days of muscle aches that I thought might kill me. Now it's gone, I've lost 5 pounds since Monday, and I'm feeling pretty good about myself. I have been dieting as well so the exercise is not fully responsible for the weight loss. I just hope I can keep it up.

For those of you who exercise on a regular basis, there is an energy muffin recipe in this magazine on the newstands now that is just what your early morning work-out calls for:
And there are some other great recipes in this issue as well.
Don't worry. I'm not going to turn this into a diet and excersise blog. That would be pretty far removed from my usual state of mind. But I was just really reaching today since no knitting is going on.

So glad you are not sticking with one project! I can't either at moment, so I started a sweater for youngest in Blue Little Lehigh. Should be cute.
Too bad you didn't get there in Am - I was there till noon!
