Someone tell me what the heck is the point of fat free Half-n-Half? For some reason, I need to see that creamy brown color to my coffee in the morning. DH means well, but fat free just doesn’t cut it. I seem to be using more of this stuff because the color is not there… no taste, either. Sigh.
Well, on to today’s post which will just be a blurb. I’m in a hurry and I do not have photoshop and I’m not sure which program out there will flip the photo so that ya’ll can read the card, but it says that I have my platelet donation appointment today. I’m pretty excited because it’s been over a year since I last did this and it feels great to get back into the swing of things. A little worried that my hemoglobin will be low because I’m not eating red meat a lot, but DH has been a blood donor like forever and he eats red meat even less than I do. This morning will have scrambled eggs for breakfast and swiss cheese if we have any. These eggs are fresh out of the hens and ducks, though I think the duck eggs are eaten. Gotta be better than those that are mass produced. We get them from my dad’s neighbor in PA. Same guy that searches the woods for mushrooms. He’s from an East European country, but I forget which one, and this guy has kept his traditions. Amazing. I’m not dead yet, so I feel comfortable saying that he knows what he’s doing. The mushrooms have a really earthy taste… so different from the farmed ones. I can’t eat a lot of fermented or fungus-y stuff; but every once in a while, I either saute them or make a soup. The spouse skeeves (spell checker is no help) mushrooms, so all the more for me.
No spinning done yesterday. I think I needed a rest since I spent the last few days spinning almost constantly, between daily tasks and whole nights. In my former post, I said that the singles seem hard. However, the possibility exists that once plied, the twist will relax and the yarn will feel softer. Also, if it ply is not overly twisted, the finished yarn will be softer. Do I have that right? I’ll soon see because my bobbin is almost full, though I don’t see myself having the time to spin today because of my appointment. WHICH brings me the idea that I can spend some time before my appointment at All About Ewe since it’s just two-three blocks away from there… woo hoo! Missed going yesterday because of church commitments, but will be sure to get there today. What I love about her website is that there is a page that lists her stock. Very handy if you need something in particular, but that’s not to say that people don’t just mosey on over there. It’s a very nicely put together store and very spacious as compared to a lot of other shops that I’ve been to. Very nice situation, off street parking which is pretty convenient.
Okay, better get going I’m getting hungry and that means my day is starting with an nice eggs and toast breakfast, which is the most important meal of the day, you know!
