Knitting? What's that?

So you probably noticed I haven't been talking about knitting much these past few weeks. I seem to have lost my knitting mojo again. It has nothing to do with my current projects, since I don't even want to start anything new. I do want to place a huge order on Knitpicks though (but I won't).

This past week has been pretty stressful at work. Our weekend news editor is on vacation and I'm filling in for him. Responsibilities = stress. And this past weekend, with all the swine flu crazyness, work was quite stressful (but I think I did ok).

I'm not working today but I have so much to do, I don't have much time to rest. Definite DORMA*. This morning I went grocery shopping and did laundry (I still have a mountain of clothes to fold and put away), then I had lunch. Next on the schedule : the rest of the laundry, gym and cooking. I want to make chicken and broccoli divan, vegetarian chili, pasta salad and carrot and raisins muffins. I need to have meals ready because my work week (starting tomorrow) will probably be crazy again.

My gym is currently having a little friendly competition. Each trainer has a team and each participant log their cardio minutes for ten days. There are going to be prizes at the end of the 10 days. I went yesterday and I want to go again today. I'm trying to go as often as I can during the week since I most likely won't be able to during the weekend.

I'm closing this post with a pic of my Phlox socks:


(They will look much butter when they're blocked). My goal is to get to the heel by the end of the week. Let's see if I can do it!

*Day of rest, my arse (thanks to Tara for the lovely expression).

I can't tell you how happy you've made me by using my expression. Maybe this is the beginning of a fad, like kinnearing? OK, probably not...

I've made the chicken divan recipe before. It's pretty good. Definitely add some spices (something really exotic, like pepper).

The socks look great!

I have made the chicken broccoli divan from Campbell's so many times. It's super good. I really recommend it!
