Its all true, the boogie girl is real, and you've found her. She knits, sews, spins, does pottery and writes it all down in this blog.

My mittens don't fit!
The beginning of winter they fit but now they press on my finger tips.
What's up with that!?!?
I took them off to hollar at my hands because they shouldn't be growing. I'm a grup, this shouldn't happen. I know I didn't shrink the mittens. That's when I noticed something truely odd. Something that I almost never see.
Working in pottery keeps them pretty short and if they get a chance to start to get long, they just break off. I've avoided the pottery studio since I've been sick. I've become a weekling and a mildly heated shop with my hands in freezing water is not where I want to be.
Where do I want to be, knitting, sleeping, eating. Not necessarily in that order.
Knitting: I got my large project finished over the weekend. Phew. I'm actually on time even though I was a sickly little gal. I haven't knit much on the socks, I was only knitting on the big project so hopefully I'll finish the socks soon and I can get onto the next big project.
Sleeping: Well, that happens in cat naps. I still have the dizzies and only a couple of positions are comfy so I end up waking up when my nose, the side of my head, my ear is all tingly or owie. On the light side, I'm getting to see a lot of late night TV. Now I know more about makeup, pilates, rotissieres, ab crunchers and zits.
Eating: I have a recipe for you. Peanut butter granola
I make it with less honey and more PB because I like it to crumble good and eat it with plain or Vanilla yogurt. So if you want more traditional granola double the honey and add less PB
4 Cups of rolled oats
1/2 jar (or more, depends on my mood) of Natural PB (not skippy, I use the good stuff you know where the oil and PB seperates and there's no added sugar.)
4 Tablespoons Honey
If your PB is dry add a bit of peanut or vegie oil.
You can also add some crushed peanuts if you want more crunch
Mix well. Spread out on a baking pan/sheet. Cook at 300 degreesF for abotu 20-30 minutes. I usually check at 15 to see how it's going. You don't want to burn it but you want it crispy. Let it cool. It's also good as a topping over ice cream if you're so inclined. And if you really want to go all out you could add chocolate chips.
This is tonight:
I'm hoping at the end of the day I'll have enough energy to make it.
sorry you still aren't feeling 100%. have you tried probiotics? they're the good bacteria that you find in things like yogurt. they might give you the boost you need to beat this thing.
Thank you Secret pal. I thought the same thing about the probiotics. I bought yogurt this weekend and that's why I made the granola. I figure it's bound to take some time (I've never been this ill before) so I figure it'll be another couple of weeks before I'm 100%
