When in doubt, defer to kindness. Boy, do I struggle with this one!
Put a Lid On It:
I'm happy because people loved the cherry pickles! And the salsa, the melon pickles, the cherry-infused vodka...
Making basil pesto ice cubes to save for the winter. Throw a few into dishes all winter to get that fresh pesto flavor!
SCUBA was a bust in the end--my right ear just won't allow me to do it. But I had one open water experience, at least.
Sadly, I had to miss my first race of the season, based on my nasty old salivary glands that will not go to their normal size. Most cancershave now been eliminated as causes of this and/or the Fibromyalgia symptoms.
Something I Really Like:
