What's On My Hooks, Needles, and Spindles:

Not yet finished:
The OHM Shawl by Michelle Miller .
One Row Lace Scarf

Both are languishing as I give in to the sock craving.
 I am about 3/4 finished the Arrow socks:

arrow socks

Dizzy Blondes: 

Would that I might sit down quietly and do my plying marathon... I really DID finish the 24+ ounces of Shetland wool from RenCon Ranch.

Every now and then, you really do need to pay a little more for the thing you know you need. Waiting won't reduce some forms of need.

Put a Lid On It:
A quick plug for your dehydrator.

Recipe for surviving flu or infection:

Refrigerator jars for breakfast: The yogurt helps to keep your gut healthy against the onslaught of any antibiotics you may be taking

Smoothies for lunch: you need the fluids anyway, and the coolness is great for sore throats. Just leave out dairy as much as you can. I am using almond milk in place of dairy milk, but I still add a half cup of my own yogurt for fending off damage from anitbiotics

Stews for dinner: even more liquid, and this gives you a chance to use up your supplies from the freezer/

Aw Shoot!

I actually lost weight on our brief sojourn to San Diego. We walked 20,000 steps per day easily for 3 days, and I was careful about eating all weekend.
Things that helped: carrying our own fruit and small snacks, such as almonds and raisins.

Something I Really Like:
My neti pot.Get one at any decent health food store.


It's Mother Bear CAL/KAL time again!

Of San Diego and its outcome. We also visited the San Diego Zoo:

Enjoy listening to your podcast very much - helps my work time fly by (I stock shelves at Target). Just wanted to mention that even Target sells neti pots! Guess they are becoming a common thing.

Give the dogs a pat from me!
