You know how when the kids are too quiet in the other room, you know for sure they're up to serious trouble? Same holds true for silent bloggers.

Yes, the Lifetime Fitness Triathlon. Because, for your first, why not just hit the biggest purse in the USA. The one broadcast on NBC.

The illustrious Miss Julie and I = Team Cupcake.
I swim and she does the rest. Of course, we immediately entered the Chisago Lakes in 2 weeks. Sheer Madness. For me.
Miss Julie, of course, was a smashing success. :-)

I promised knitting and knitting there is. Albeit in small order due to the Triathlon training and participation. Z is v. excited to road test these bad boys.

The garden is really turning it on.
Never again this year, I imagine, will we be able to say the word "zucchini" in singularity.

Baby beets.

Embryonic carrots. More from thinning than anticipation of eating.

And green beans.

I know. It just keeps coming. These we pan steamed and dry sauteed with garlic. Z requested for lunch the following day. With ketchup.

In crafting news, the real reason for the blog, after all - I got in on the Hello Yarn Fiber of the Month Club. Someday I'll have time to spin, and knit, and sew again.

What a prolific garden you have! It makes my mouth water and my non-existent green thumbs wriggle- I can't wait to have a space of my own to dig in the dirt. Maybe in the coming year?! The fibre club looks great too- will be interesting to see what comes your way.

Great garden! Participating in a triathlon? Very cool!

That is cool about the triathalon. My mom lives on a pond which holds one every year. We always go and stand on the dock to cheer on the swimmers, while we eat donuts, of course.

It sounds like you are doing something really healthy! And look at those veggies, I love homegrown food.

fabulous vegetables...when I have a backyard, I will definitely be growing stuff. For now, I'll have to settle for the farmer's market that happens a mere block away!

And congrats on the fiber club, I really wanted to do it, but I am beyond broke right now. Can't wait to see what you get.

The garden is certainly gifting you! I had a friend who's mother used to say, "you know you have no friends if you have to buy zucchini" now I feel guilty buying it at the store...but I have pine trees in my yard, so it's a little hard to grow here...yeah, yeah!
