New Habits

In preparation for the new year, I’m starting my new habits early. I’ve started baking my steel cut oats with an egg in it to give it more protein and make it creamy. I’ve started journaling every morning with a pencil on paper. And I’ve started taking twilight walks instead of going to the gym.

The goal of this is self care. I may need to go back to the gym, but I was feeling driven and also stressed by my gym routine, as well as Noom, so I’m changing it up. I’m trying for moderation in all things including food and drink. Seems reasonable.

I’m dyeing my Tunis yarn with red cabbage. I’m trying for a gradient. Most natural dyeing sites don’t recommend dyeing wool with red cabbage as it doesn’t yield much color. I’m going for the soft gray blues and purples of twilight, so I’m hoping it will be ok. If not I guess I can overdye it with some acid dyes.

Bob is making sweet and sour cabbage soup for dinner.

I’m on Typhoid vaccination meds for my upcoming trip to Kenya. It basically makes me feel like I have the flu, so I haven’t been at my best. Not a lot of knitting going on!

  1. I hope you feel better. The stress and vaccines are quite a mix:( My husband gets that flu reaction to every vaccine he gets. He blames his hyper vigilant immune system:)
    I think pale yarn with the colors of twilight will be beautiful.

  2. I’m sure your trip to Kenya will be worth some some symptoms now. I thought about starting resolutions early and then woke up with a sore throat, cough and aching legs so maybe not today. Excuses excuses. Good for you making some changes.
