Fruits of My Labor

Remember how I was saying I got this ridiculously fun, but hard work job of frying donuts? Well this lovely assortment of donuts, all made by me, is a mere sampling of my handiwork. Yes, this is what I get to be surrounded with while I'm working. I'm a lucky girl.


My physical therapists are also lucky. Because they're getting this lovely assortment of donuts. And to top it off, Wilma the Knee has decided to regress so I'll be in physical therapy for much much longer. They probably will get more donuts. Wilma has decided to continue to swell and cause me pain (which I faithfully report on a 0-10 scale, 0 being pain free and 10 being agony. Today is about a 4 1/2.) The doctor says that I'm still in the normal range for recovery, just at the bottom of it. So I am no longer allowed to ride my bike, work out, take long walks. It's highly annoying. No working out means no eating donuts. Shoot.


So while I'm pretty much laying on the couch icing and elevating (again) while I'm not at work, I've taken up a new hobby. Partly because interesting TV dies around 2:00. I've begun to knit. I'm currently looking for something cool to knit so that I can buy some of the buttons on this website. One of my physical therapy team members (yes, I have a team) just had a baby. So I made her this cute baby beanie and old man style cardigan sweater. The set is modeled by the oh so lovely Travel Bear.


Don't worry, I'm still cooking, it's just hot here and I thought you might like to see what I've been up to.

Brava! (Both on the donuts AND the sweet hat-and-sweater set!) Do you knit for sale? A friend of mine is having a baby and I LOVE that old man sweater! It's so darling!

And... er... you named your knee? *chuckle*

Amanda said...

PS, those donuts really do look fab. I would be fat as a cow if I had those anywhere near me.

You're being rather coy about the whys and wherefors of this donut job!

Adorable sweater and hat!

I hope Wilma gets her act together soon.

I hope the doughnut job isn't making your knee worse!! I took up knitting once, but started making a scarf that ended up WAY too long. I haven't revisited it yet, but maybe one day I will...

She cooks, she knits, she makes the donuts. Your husband is a VERY lucky man.

And, thanks so much for the linky love to my website.
