The Hodge and the Podge

The worst paper cuts come from pizza boxes. I know this because Jeff is out of town, and when Jeff goes out of town, we tend to indulge. When there’s a fresh pizza in the house, I often cannot open that box quickly enough. (I’m currently sporting a Donald Duck Band-Aid on my right middle finger.)

This morning I finished up my first redo week of Couch to 5K, and I’m hating it just as much as I hated it three months ago. My goal is to run a 5K sometime around my 42nd birthday, which is in May. 42 is one of my favorite numbers, so I’m feeling fairly confident that the birthday 5K won’t kill me. (I don’t believe in irony.)

This evening for dinner I grilled a portobello mushroom with some fresh spinach and plopped them onto an English muffin with some Colby Jack cheese and horseradish mustard. It was the best thing I’ve eaten in quite some time, and it added up to only seven points. Yes. I’m doing the Weight Watchers thing again. I love/hate it, and it always works for me when I do it the right way.

I’m knitting my first project from my handspun yarn.

It will eventually be a pair of fingerless mitts.

  1. That wool looks gorgeous! Well done, you. I spent a happy hour yesterday disentangling a huge muddle of fluffy wool and winding it back up into a neat ball. It’s the nearest I’ve come to knitting in about 15 years. Felt good!

    (The wool came from a hideous mess that finally went critical in the corner of the study. It had been there so long the cat vomit that glued together some of the strands of wool was so old it didn’t smell any more, and crumbled to dust when I touched it. So that worked well.)

  2. Congrats on finishing the first week! You can do it! I mean, y’know, if you keep feeling like you want to do it. If not, no worries!

  3. ooooohhhhhhh!! so pretty! The thing about spinning is, you can make the exact yarn you want. BUT – I barely have time to knit, so spinning is unlikely to be headed my way anytime soon.

  4. Oh my goodness, that yarn is so delicious! Your portobello sandwich didn’t sound half bad either.

  5. wow, look at who’s started the new year with a bang, Miss Motivation good for you!

    I just want to stop biting my fingers.

    Pathetic, uh?

  6. I love your yarn! The colors are amazing… Can’t wait to see your fingerless mitts when they’re done.

  7. ugh. I’m back in WW too – see “shewtwists” online. Reference to my sporadic affection w/ yoga.

    Gorgeous yarn!

  8. I really should go back on WW but that would mean I couldn’t overdose on leftover chocolate and I’m not certain I’m ready for that.

  9. I am currently doing the soup diet, then on to South Beach ( the diet, not the beach). Good luck to you (and me)!

  10. Oh my, that yarn is stunning!
    Eager to hear about your 5K progress. If you can walk it, you can run it!
