Teeth: a sale

No, I’m not selling teeth. That would be weird. Ew. I’m writing this because my sweet bunny Roxanne is at the vet recovering from surgery. She had to have some of her teeth trimmed, and several teeth removed because they were infected at the roots. The infection was so bad, it had gone up into …

Ibuprofen and Wool

Usually on Thanksgiving Day I post a list of things I’m grateful for. I missed it this year. It’s not that I’m ungrateful. I’m grateful for many things. But it was hard to focus on anything except my back pain. It’s been aching for the past month. Wednesday, after realizing I’d been saying “if it …

I’m not quite dead

I’m getting better. I’m still coughing, but I’m not coughing as hard as I was yesterday, when I was half expecting to see large solid objects pop out of my mouth as I coughed. Weasels. Alarm clocks. Refrigerators.* So when all I coughed up was a teaspoon of phlegm, I felt kind of cheated. I …

Valentine’s Day Sale and Spinner’s Flock Fleece Fair

Have you all got the cold from hell that I’m just getting over? Dude. For two weeks, all I had the energy to do was sleep and produce snot. Fortunately I’m starting to feel better, so I have the energy to do things like get dressed and write blog posts. So, now that I can …

It’s been 10 years since I’ve driven a car

combed top for fiber expo

Usually in my time-impaired obliviousness, I’m pretty fuzzy about what the date is. I just had a vague idea that it was late October. And I knew Fiber Expo was coming up this weekend, because I’ve been dyeing up a ton of yarn and fiber to get ready. (Here’s some of the fiber I’ve been …

I’m not quite dead

I was finally well enough today to mail club shipments. Thanks for your patience. I’m still not over this nasty thing that may be bronchitis or may be pneumonia. (My doctor said it could be either one and she would treat them the same, and since the only way to tell for sure which one …

The Bronchitis Blues

Were you planning to go to Greencastle this coming weekend to come visit my booth? Well, if you were going to see the other nice vendors too, keep your plans. But if you were just coming to see me, I’m afraid I had to cancel. I’ve got bronchitis. And since I’ve got asthma, it hits …

I hate colds

I try not to be too whiny here, but man, this cold is kicking my ass. This is day 9 of the cold from hell. I thought it was almost over a few days ago, but then yesterday I had a relapse. Either that or cold #1 invited some of its germy friends in to …

Punk pin cushion on wheels

So.  I did something I haven’t done for about three years.  Something I wasn’t sure I’d ever do again. I rode my bike. Certainly no big deal to many people, but for me?  I had to really think long and hard about it. I used to ride my bike everywhere, year round.  I even rode …

a pain in the neck

My neurologist referred me to a physical therapist since a lot of my migraines are accompanied by neck pain.  I had my first appointment with the PT on Monday and learned that wow, it's amazing how screwed up my neck and upper back are.  I won't bore you with all the details, but what it …
