Finishing a project

Sunday, May 30, 2010

Today I finished knitting my sweater. What pleases me most about it is the last time I knitted a sweater by this pattern I had to choose "medium" size. This time I chose "small" size and it
fits me to a T. I'm so proud of it, I got my husband to take a picture of me in it. You can go to my photo gallery and see it. I wonder what my next project will be, but I'm sure it will be either sewing or knitting. I like to have a pretty product from whatever I do.

Hi! All you Sparkpeople
You're a great crowd
You and your leaders can be very proud

Using Your Mind

Tuesday, May 25, 2010

While I walk, I have several ways to exercise my mind as well as my body. I sing hymns to myself and try to remember all the words. I pray as I walk. I sometimes write poetry in my mind and write it down when I get home. It makes walking a pleasure and keeps my mind active.

    Those are wonderful activities you are doing. I am sure the Lord is pleased. Too many concentrate on their care instead of those positive thoughts. emoticon emoticon emoticon
for sharing!

Knitting Away Temptation

Monday, May 17, 2010

I remember the days before I found Sparkpeople, when I used to fill any spare time I had by grabbing a quick snack, not caring what that snack might be. Now, when I have "time on my hands", I pick up my knitting and the rhythmic motion of my hands and the needles calms me, takes my mind off food and fills my creative urge. Right now I'm knitting a peach colored sweater using yarn I purchased in Ireland. I'm using large needles, so it's going really fast.
When I finish it, I'll post a picture of me wearing my new sweater.

    I love knitting and crocheting. It makes my hands feel better( arthritis in hands ). but summer months make it hard to knit too hot and humid here in Florida. carolyn

Picking Strawberries

Monday, May 10, 2010

My husband and I went to a strawberry farm today and picked beautiful red ripe strawberries for $1.50 a lb. We brought home 7 lbs of strawberries, picked in about a half hour. It was great exercise, we met lots of friendly people and we now have strawberries to eat now and to freeze for strawberry jam or strawberry ice cream or just to pop in my mouth for a snack. I froze the individual strawberries on a cookie sheet and will package them in freezer bags after they're frozen. Good exercise and good nutrition all in 30 min.

    Now, that I call a double blessing, Peggy. I am allergic to strawberries, but accept the consequences and have a serving of strawberry shortcake once a year. lol Enjoy those strawberries and keep up the exercise berry picking or not! Hugs, Jane emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Oh how I'm looking forward to fresh strawberries here! We don't get them till later on in June. I used to freeze mine on cookie sheets too but now it is just me who eats them, I freeze them in small freezer bags. Love the homemade strawberry jam too!
