*I made granola yesterday. I used Pioneer Woman’s basic recipe. I cannot eat it right now, I have to stay with SOFT foods, but Fireman loves homemade granola. It is one of those things that is so much cheaper made at home. Do you make something at home that saves you a bundle?
*My sister and I decided NO NEWS coverage for 24 hours. We think it will be good for both of us. Do you take a news fast?
*How’s your Christmas shopping coming? Yes, I know it is January. There are great deals out there folks! I have purchased 4 gifts already at greatly reduced prices.
*I was pretty unhappy last night when I came upon a KNOT in my yarn. As in, they tied two broken ends together and kept going ,kind of knot. This meant, for me, tinking back to the beginning of the row and cutting the yarn . Then I rejoined at the row edge and kept going. I felt if I didn’t do this, the whole gorgeous shawl would unravel someday. (Do you join your yarn on the edge of a row? )
- Speaking of that, Some of my gum stitches fell out yesterday. The others are barely hanging on. I guess I’m healing quickly. I was told they may fall out; I see the oral surgeon for followup and stitch removal Friday. Knots, when you dont’ want them they are there, when you do they fall out….
*I was able to find out that because of the donor material placed in my gum socket, I cannot give blood for a year. I was happy to hear this as I thought it might mean I could never give again.
*In cat tooth news, Miss Pie is letting Fireman brush her teeth every night. She actually likes it. I keep her poultry flavored toothpaste far away from my mint flavor. Neither one of us would like to switch our flavors accidentally.
I’m off to the barn for class. Winter Session is in full force for our amazing students. I think it is really important for everyone to get out a bit this time of year…..it is good for me, too!
