Just moving along

Friday morning I woke up with a horrible headache. I’m pretty sure that it was sinuses because it got better when I pressed the corresponding acupressure points.  Either way it was a totally wasted day for me. We’ve been doing saline nasal washes twice a day but I am no way as diligent as Husband so I paid the price. He has also been adding a few drops of tea tree oil to his neti pot. Being a bit of a woos, I declined the additive, but I’m now a believer.  I am also feeling like a normal human today, so it was only a 24 hour thing. I want to thank everyone who came to the Book Signing. It was a lot of fun. Joanna blogged about it and posted some great photos from the event.

I couldn’t stand it

Cruising the internet, I found the pattern for the mermaid blanket. The yarn is heavier and the needles larger than what I’m using but that is no big deal.

Husband says that I must have been a cat in a ...

activities for cooler weather

As the firecrackers scent the air with gunpowder and create patterns in the sky, I am reminded of various folk remedies to end drought, where rockets are shot into the air to bring down rain. The rains have finally come, nice long afternoon showers cooling everything off. Saturday, I scattered  flower seeds in the gaping maws of the huge cement pots where the skeletal Flor de Mayo trees are planted. Little seedlings seem to be sprouting, I can’t wait to see what I’ve sown because I indiscriminately broadcast the remnants of the outdated seed packages I have been saving.  The only planned sowing were Swiss Chard in a package label something like rainbow silver beet which I hope to see poking through  the zatar (also known as oregano grueso) in my big bushel sized tub. Gardening has been taking a backseat to my other activities, the yard is looking tamer these days. The gardener and I seem to have settled ...
