What's On My Hook/Needles/Spindle: The list:
The Daybreak Shawl--still being ignored.
Ishbel Shawl --I'm close to monogamous on this now. And yet I also weakened and started the 198 Yards of Heaven Shawlette, in a show of support for the Summer of Shawlettes hosted by Dawn over at the Knit Naturally podcast.
Toddler Socks--I've turned the heel! Hooray!
The Argante Shawl--Not this week.

Dizzy Blonde:  Spinning merrily on luscious superwash in Orchid semisolid from Freckle Face Fibers.

Strategy: Dealing with the Aging/Ill Parent:  A few loose ends and DABDA when someone dies suddenly.

Something I Really Like:  Low carb chocolate at Trader Joes--Thank you, Heaven! And go visit the thread on Ravelry where we chat about organic CSA's and exchange recipes for their contents.

Blather: Becoming an undergrad again. Psychologists prescribing in the prisons...maybe someday.

I just wanted to tell you that I really enjoy your podcast. I have found the series about death very informative. I lost my husband about two months ago. A lot of things you have talked about, we went through. My husband died at home and we had Hospice. He had pancreatic cancer, but we were very fortunate to have 19 months after was diagnosed. He died at night while I was sleeping. Something woke me up that morning. He hadn't been out of the bed for about a week, but he had kicked his leg out of the bed and his arm was out. It was like he saw someone that he was trying to get to. It has been interesting to me that a lot of things you mentioned, we went through. Thanks again.

Dr. Gemma, I can't seem to find your email address so I will leave a comment here. The tuna blended mixture sounded good to me, hence I gave it to the DH. He blogged about it today at: http://livingthegrandlife.blogspot.com

It was so funny I almost wet my pants, and I hope you get a kick out of it, too!
