I've been a knittin' fool.
This past weekend was Greg's milestone 55th birthday! To celebrate on the actual birth date, we had brunch with his parents, Ron and Evie, at Palisade on Sunday.
Greg's parents are both turning 84/85? this year. They are in great physical and mental shape. In fact in 2007 they have 3 trips planned already. Arizona, a cruise from Singapore to Dubai, Colorado. They drive, they workout, they live a full life.
We got talking about working out. Ron has been working out everyday, lifting weights, feeling better than ever. Greg has been faithfully working out 5 days a week. Greg will ask if I want to join him at the gym. I say no. I'd rather knit!
Evie and I discussed how our hobbies are sedentary(knitting, scrapbooking, making christmas ornaments, soon to be spinning). She made a comment to me that really hit me.
It hit me in a very good way.
She said, "if you don't have time to exercise, you don't have time to knit!".
I thought about it. I continued to think about it.
Yes. I need to make exercise a priority before everything else. Without health, there is nothing else.
So my reward for working out? I get to knit.
What a concept. So far this week I'm two for two. I get to go knit now.
