Instead of languidly succumbing to my normal post-lunch nap, today I've decided to post. ...about nothing earth-shattering (remember, I'm doing this to stay awake, & not to entertain you).

I just reserved myself an eMailorder from Kingpod. Maybe you'll receive a special X-acto Valentine from moi.

A tut. on how to make an old spice tin pretty & usable for other functions besides holding spices has been swimming around in my mind. Oh - but I'm sure that's already been done, and besides, there's a cat on my lap. So here's what they look like when they're all done! A cinch.

And finally, mild proof that there might actually be someone inside of me. (Don't expect these updates frequently).

3. Brain needed a re-charge at 7:30 am last Friday.

Isn't that a pretty quilt square?

Think, "Hmmmm..."


"For thousands of years, people ate healthily without knowing what an antioxidant was."

"On average, Americans used to spend 18% of their income on food and 5% on health care. Now we spend 10% on food, 16% on health care."

"The experiment of outsourcing the cooking of our meals has failed miserably."

- Favorite quotes from today's Talk of the Nation, Science Friday guest Michael Pollan, author of
In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto
