Oops, I never did get to making the celery soup yesterday. Instead I:
1. Did another practice LSAT test. (The result was disappointing.)
2. Made a gallon of homemade yogurt in the crock pot. (The result was NOT disappointing.) (In fact, it was awesome.) (I've got a bee in my bonnet about all the [plain and Greek] yogurt we eat and all the 1-quart plastic containers we throw away. Oh, all right, "send to the recycling center." But still, what most people don't know is that sending all that stuff to the recycling center should not leave one with a completely clear conscience. It's better than the landfill -- or is it? Does everything that we think we are recycling get recycled? Is there an outlet for all the recycleables? Is there a market for them? Is it economically sound to recycle them? The answer, more often than we wish, is no. I'm told by my recycling center reps that there is a huge glut of recycled stuff -- or more accurately, stuff that is returned by well meaning individuals who think it is really going to be recycled -- and nowhere to send it.) (Sorry for all the parentheticals.) (I won't do it again.) (I promise.) (Probably.) Plus, making yogurt was easy and fun, I didn't have to buy anything except a gallon of milk (I used 1%) and a box of nonfat powdered milk, and it will save (lots of) money. (Oops.)
3. Knitted on my red scarf. At last measure it was 45". (I'm thrilled to see the enthusiasm with which the blog community is taking on the Red Scarf challenge. If you don't already know, the Knitspot Ravelry group is having a knitalong -- with prizes!) Erika has instituted a six-inches-a-day plan. I'm not touching that one with a ten-foot pole. (Oops.)
4. Went to the gym and had a hell of a good and varied workout, using the Tabata protocol, and taught the protocol to Abigail. She's a fan.
5. Followed the workout with a light dinner of leftover broccoli-mushroom-cheddar soup and a huge salad, and grapefruit.
Life is good. Well, all except for that LSAT. Oops.
