As It Turns Out...

I was sick.

Go figure. There's a fine line between what gluten allergies feel like and having a cold feels like. Both miserable! 

Thank goodness I pulled through because I started rehearsals for A Charlie Brown Christmas and I'm going to need all of that energy for ridiculous singing and dancing. Ridiculous! 

And my sister and I just opened an Etsy shop: Strong Arts & Crafts, so I should get my behind in gear and start making things to sell.

So much to do these days. Happy holidays!

Sick Of This!

After a full day of crafting, cooking, and getting things done around the house I should be exhausted, but I'm up late due to allergies and not being able to breathe. 

I started my day with an old favorite recipe for sweet potato hash from my ultra metabolism cookbook. It's whole foods based and I knew nothing about it would give me an allergic reaction. 

I procrastinated craft time by cleaning up my kitchen including putting away the party dishes from a few weeks ago. I fixed my loose closet door with a couple tooth picks in the screw holes. I even hung my new coca cola sign.

Then I headed into my basement to get crafting supplies and procrastinated a little more by doing some rearranging. Or organizing the crafts as I tell myself. 

I finally headed out to my workshop in the garage and prepped a bunch of barnwood for crafts. I've got some jewelry hangers, votive holders, signs, and bed spring trees and snowmen in progress.

I might actually have a few things to sell at the craft fair next week! I ended my evening with my Coffee Beef Stew (totally non-allergenic) and whipped up a new brownie recipe that seemed to be allergen free. 

I didn't even take my stomach meds tonight as I recently heard they can cause higher sensitivity to allergens (like I need that)! So that leaves the cider and brandy as a culprit. The brandy is probably not high quality and I tend to have a reaction when I'm slumming it with my liquor selections.

Perhaps never again. I'm sooo sick off this!

Than This Happened

It seems like forever ago that US Cellular sold my account to Sprint and forced a phone upgrade on me. But it was only about a year ago.

I felt like it would be convenient to have a phone that would communicate with my iTunes and that turned out to be correct. Since getting an iPhone I also got a new car with all the fancy Bluetoothness. I will never deny that it's pretty convenient. But it's pretty much just a glorified iPod. 

I absolutely hate the keyboard and pecking out each letter one by one. This is the modern age for crying out loud! Once I tried to download a Swype app only to be highly disappointed and I gave up. Until now. 

For some reason I was in the app store thingy and it recommended this Swype app. Don't mind if I do! Absolutely beautiful. It's as if we've been reunited... And it feels so good! 

So here I am back on the blog because I can actually communicate with this iPod now. So sweet. Stay tuned.  I'm going to attempt to get back into the blogging saddle.
