swing of things

Ahh, spring. It's been lovely here and there, so I've been taking advantage of the nice today. Monday I went for a great run and today went for a nice long dog walk. Yesterday was rainy and gross, though, so I cleaned the bathrooms and now they're sparkling.

Oh yeah and last week I picked more strawberries:

more strawberries

I'm so glad I went the week before - last week's selection was a little more picked over. We still found plenty, but it took longer to find them. We had lots to eat fresh ... but I set aside a bunch and made this:


Lots of jam! I gave four of the six containers to friends, froze one for future use and put one in the fridge for us. It is so very bright red and delicious!

I've got tomorrow and Friday off work ... I'm going to lunch with my aunt at my new favorite restaurant and then going to a catered dinner for work downtown at a place I've never been. Friday, Josh and I might go to a late-night screening of the new Indiana Jones movie. Mostly I'm awaiting the arrival of a KnitPicks package in the mail (I finally ordered the Options needles!!) and going to try to finish the 3rd and 4th baby booties for my co-worker. Fun fun!


  1. wow... look at those berries.

    Another month or so before we get ours, and I can't wait.

    Glad you had a good run.

  2. Oooh! Options! Tell me how you like them. I've thought about them but I don't know anyone who actually has I'll be interested in your opinion. Niiice!
