Now I'm sad about something.
I just don't like my late winter/early spring thighs or the hips they emerge from either, frankly. I saw an article last month that said do these exercises and have thinner thighs in just 30 days. If I'd started that regime then, I would now have thinner thighs, darn it.
I'm noticing my thighs for a reason (have been unaware of them all winter, it seems). Babysitting grandson, the one that is 16 months old, is providing a workout for mine. I'm crouching a lot with him and running around scooched down as in playing peekaboo around the kitchen island, which he likes to do a lot and tonight my legs are a wee bit wobbly. What a great excuse to just sit and stitch.
I'm spending an enjoyable hour or two a day on that cross stitch project. I'm loving how relaxing it is to spend such time stitching; it really does suspend all thoughts which they say is as good as meditation and I believe that.
Before I forget, someone asked how long my burgundy scarf turned out with all three balls knit up. It is almost 5 feet long, a good length and has a light feel to it. Sadly, scarves can still be worn this many days past the first day of spring.
I just read in the paper that our regular summer birds are being slow to return; sightings so far have been scanty. Can you blame them? I'd stay south too if I could. I did sight a raccoon on my drive home the other night. I guess hunger will force them out and about no matter the temperatures.
Meanwhile I have this great bunch of leeks, one of my favourites; I'm recipe browsing to find a good use for them.
This past weekend, Saturday was noodle night. Love how convenient these udon noodles are.
I added a sauce mixture I made up consisting of chicken broth, chicken, tomatoes, carrots, chick peas, rice wine vinegar, and various beans. Hubby likes spicy so I added some of that Rooster hot chili sauce.
A great little meal for an evening of t.v. viewing. We are now watching American Crime, The Slap, Secrets and Lies, Hit and Miss and many others. It is a golden age of television for sure and I'm so happy to be around to witness it.
