First off, I’m going to the gym tonight with my friend Kari (no, I did not go last night… it’s really hard to get back out of the house in the evenings with the kids… maybe Curves, which is a few blocks from my house… we’ll see). YAY! Last night, I stopped off at Canadian Tire and picked up 5 and 10 lb free weights, a yoga mat, and some hand grips. Still need a 20kg kettlebell weight and an exercise ball (maybe a medicine ball too). Then I’ll be able to do MOST of my gym workout at home. That will have to wait for my next paycheque though.

This is what I’ve started my new Doctors Without Borders scarf in:

It’s Boutique Changes by Red Heart. There are six different yarns in there (there’s even a sparkly metallic one). Sadly, I can’t adjust the colour (don’t have Picasa on this computer) but it’s a bit darker than that. This is DWB Scarf # 2:

And now…. what I’m so excited about 😀 Guess what I did last night?

I planted four pellets of tomatoes (the whole package had 10 seeds in it… ripoff!), eight of chives, twelve of curled-leaf parsley, and six each of sweet basil and cilantro 🙂 Each one of those mini-greenhouses has twelve pellets in it (they really are pellets, and then you pour warm water on them, and they expand into clumps of dirt!) Hopefully they will sprout and I’ll have a little balcony garden this summer. I’m planning to add a rhubarb plant (in a planter, obviously) and maybe an avocado if I can ever get one to sprout!
