bad blogger!

so they say it takes 21 days to make a habit, right?
well, i'd like to start forming two habits.
one - i'd love to start taking walks every day. without the pressure of exercise (yuck) but with the purpose of getting fresh air and loving my neighborhood. it's so easy to use knitting or housework or anything at all as an excuse to stay in, but that's silly and lazy.
two - i'd love to be back in the habit of blogging regularly. i love having a journal to look back at to see what's been going on. even if i just take ten minutes a day, post a photo or a list...i think i'll feel a little more centered by checking in with myself.

so what's going on? oh nothing really. we're finally getting some warm weather. it doesn't usually hit me this hard, but i'm really tired of the snow this year. we got 12 inches a week ago and i just didn't want to face it at all. i had to keep reminding myself that i wasn't the only person in the world who had to go out and shovel... (i'm such a big baby). the windows have been open the past couple days and the fresh air is just so super stimulating. i've gotten so much done!

i really have to go start dinner in about four minutes. i've been trying very hard to try new recipes...i have so many cooking magazines and cookbooks, and i HATE having the same meals in rotation over and over and over. tonight it's a recipe from everyday food from jan/feb 2007...roast beef with peppers, onions, and potatoes. (that's another thing - i need to expand our vegetables from just broccoli and asparagus). this recipe has a followup for what to do with the leftover beef later in the week. AWESOME. (beef and mango wraps scheduled for tuesday). i hope this recipe is good because the roast i bought cost almost $15. that's a chunk of the grocery budget. i love cooking in general, and there's something i really love about having a meal ready for hub when he gets home from work. domesticity!

knitting is good. mostly work projects going on right now. i'll try to post some photos later this week.

time to go cook!

p.s. i've decided Bollywood music is the best for cleaning house and getting stuff done!
