Gym

Since I joined the gym a month ago I have lost 4 lbs and 1 percentage of body fat. Which is great. I have been using a personal trainer. She sets up what exercises that I will be doing for a week and weight and measure me once a week. I go to the gym at least 5 days a week. I tend to skip the day after I meat with Lisa, I am just to sore to go. This week Most of what I doing has to do with balancing. I have just a little more upper body strength but I still have a ways to go.

Tote Bag


I am defiantly getting better at making tote bags. This one only took 2 hours. It is for some one who likes pink. The rest of her box of stuff looks like this. I am mailing it out today.

Canning




Well I have 12 Jars of peach sauce and I have started to make apple sauce. I will have more of those, it is easier and cheaper to make.
I am also done drying peaches and have started drying apples. I have a nice amount of dried peaches though.

Sock pal stuff


I was running a little late so it will be in the mail Sunday. I had to finish the bag. It is of course pink. Here are the finished socks. It was a fun knit. I really like the yarn, it is Socks that Rock.

Peaches

Peaches would be why I have not been here much. I have been drying, freezing and caning Peaches. I made a froze 2 peach pies and I have and am making lots of jars of peach sauce, it is like apple sauce with peaches instead. This has caused my hand to hurt a little bit and I have not been knitting because of this. But my house smells great. I even made some peach fruit roll ups.

This Sat. is the last day to get peaches from the Farmers Market. After this weekend it will be apples. There is less of them because of a late freeze. There was no plums this year which bummed me out. I loved canned plums.

Grocery Shopping

I like grocery shopping. Going though the food ads and coupons see what is on sale is fun for me. Unfortunately the main store I went to closed. They are redoing the strip mall that it was in and tore it down last month. It will be back bigger and better next year but that means I have to go some where else now.

It is not so much the fact that I have to drive some where else but the fact that the layout of the store is total different. I was looking for canning lids and I had to walk all over to find them. They where not where I thought they would be. I have this to look forward to.
