Slow Going

My work life moves in fast forward this time of year, however, my home life moves in slow motion.  When I leave my desk for the day I can immediately begin to feel my body slowing down.  By the time I am ready to sit and knit, I feel like I am crawling across the floor to get to my chair. 

To keep myself from going bonkers during the first months of the year I try to stay healthy and do important things like eat right, keep the juicing going, and do yoga.  Now I have become a connoisseur of smoothies.  I love a smoothie lunch that I can sip for an hour or more but they are far away in terms of go-get-it.  They are also v-e-r-y expensive!  Well, you all know how much I love my tech toys and kitchen tools so I bought this…

to indulge my smoothie addiction.  I can definitely say the Ninja is fantastic!!  It is not just for smoothies though.  So far I have used it for black bean soup, corn chowder, biscuits and pizza dough.  The next time you need a food processor/blender try the Ninja.

I think I have found out why I am not getting any socks finished…

Do you think I have a few too many projects going?  I am working on finishing the blue socks with the lime green heels and toes and will go on from there.  I will finish!

This little Woodpecker has been visiting to peck at the suet.  I think this is a female Downy Woodpecker.

My babies have been hunting during the warmer days we have been having (80 degrees today).  They caught a squirrel but let it go.  I don’t know what the catch and release thing is about or maybe they are just off their game and need more practice.  They don’t get a lot of practice when they are sleeping in my lap while I knit

but they are expert sleepers!

Life is good.

I love my Black & Decker blender, but I don't use it much after it started to leak around the gasket. In my opinion, they need to go back to the flat, rubber gasket instead of the fancy grooved one.

Love all the socks, and I KNOW you will finish them as soon as the tax rush is over.

I have a Ninja too but only use it for smoothies. Tell me more about the soups, please?

The pups are darling as always. I'm not knitting, so I like your socks quite well.

You do not have too much on the needles as far as I'm concerned. I love the colors in every pair of socks you have in progress. So fun. I love that picture of the woodpecker. I have never seen one like that before!

And I don't have a smoothie everyday, but I've been including them in my weekly upkeep. It's good stuff :)
