Fiber-Rich, Calorie-Poor

Today, I felt fine, just fine, unless I ate something. So I didn't eat. Instead, I went to Aldi's, my new love, because it sells perfectly decent mayonnaise for less than $2 a jar. Also? Watermelons for $3.50 each, and good Kaiser rolls for hamburgers at $1.50 for 8.

Yeah, I had a stomach virus but I went food shopping. They don't call me "Mom" for nothing, you know.

And then I headed to the yarn store, because there was a 25% off sale there. I managed to snatch up the last couple of skeins of Crazy yarn, which is my current fiber crush. Every skein is different! Trade 'em with your friends! After that, I went home and tried again to eat, but that still didn't work, so I just knit instead.

See? It's CRAZY (even without the camels)
Cowl I knit from other skeins of Crazy (sans dromedaries)

With blatant disregard for my inability to eat, Anna chose today to make key lime bars to die for.  I'm saving mine in the fridge, for if I ever feel better again. Lord help the kid that eats it by mistake, I'll say that right now.

Larry is planning to kayak tomorrow morning, while I make a vat of potato salad and prep the hamburgers and chicken, stomach virus or not. We haven't invited anyone over, so it's not as though this is a Typhoid Mary scenario or anything. And I figure that anyone who lives in this house is already doomed, right?


  1. Touching raw meat always turns my stomach (not enough to make me a vegetarian, just enough to turn my stomach) so I don't know how you can possibly handle it. But I do know this: put your name on the well-wrapped key lime bar and woe to the person who dares to touch it!
    Hope you feel better by morning!

  2. Oh yeah. In the family it is already shared.

    At least it's not Thanksgiving.

  4. "Yeah, I had a stomach virus but I went food shopping. They don't call me "Mom" for nothing, you know." Truer words were never spoken.

    That stinks--being sick when there's good dessert in the fridge!
    But the yarn, the colors and patterns are beautiful.

  6. Spreading all your germs at the grocery store and yarn store ;) Someone I know one time said that they were so pissed off they had pink eye they touched everything to share their misery lol
