Ah, this is one of my favorite times of the year! College basketball March Madness. The Big 12 championship game between KU and KState was great — I have been a KU fan for years. I watched mucho basketball this weekend and will for the next few weeks to come! YAY! And it is great knitting time, too. I worked on the sleeves for the cotton baby cardi. The sweater will soon be done.
And the Mississippi State-Kentucky game was a nail biter! Kentucky sent the game to overtime with a bucket at .1 seconds left — and then won by 1. It just doesn’t get any better than the madness in March.
I made hummus on Saturday, carrot muffins and vegetable fried rice yesterday. I love the carrot muffins — the taste of carrot cake without the fatty frosting. They have crushed pineapple and I add walnuts, and the recipe calls for wheat germ but I use ground flaxseed instead. I had two for breakfast this morning.
I got my annual spring haircut so I am ready for warmer temps!
I finished reading The Swan Thieves. It was a good read — I didn’t enjoy it as much as I did The Historian, but it held my interest and I do like her writing style. I have The Hunger Games in my book bag to start.
It was pretty windy and chilly yesterday but the pug and I got out for a walk at the park after 3 hours of basketball watching.
