The topic: A photo of my crafting station

I like working in the family room, but I don’t like hauling all of this stuff out and then putting it all away when I’m done. Well, I guess I can look at the bright side, I get some exercise.

The topic: My cold is much better


And forget all of those cold medicines, what worked for me was plain old Benedryl. I almost felt human yesterday, it was nice.

The topic: Kirby cannot eat egg


Every time he eats them, he pukes. He likes them, they don’t like him.

He puked up his regular breakfast yesterday, I gave him a Pepcid.  Then he licked my breakfast plate, we had French toast. There was a little egg on it and Kirby got it.  Poor guy, puked more and there was the egg.

I ended up giving him 60cc of lactated ringers, I should really try to give them to him on a regular basis, I’m sure they won’t hurt him. He’s old and kidney failure is pretty common with the old guys.

Other than that, he’s going strong.

The topic: Labels!


Yesterday afternoon, I set my little workshop up in the family room to work on the labels for my pantry. 

I ended up bringing out my older Epson inkjet color stylus printer to use for printing out the labels. I hadn’t used it in a while, but it’s been covered and kept clean. I did have to install drivers for it on my laptop. Everything worked as it should.

It took a while to figure out how to print and cut with the Silhouette software, I’ve done it in the past, but haven’t done enough to reinforce the workflow in my head. I think I’ve got a handle on it now and will start printing labels today.  I did a few last night and I’m really happy with them.

I’ll take pictures.

And I ordered some glass spice jars (at Sunburst Bottle ; they had the best total price - shipping plus product) since I plan on getting spices at Sprout’s instead of prepackaged at the grocery store. I’m excited, this is something I’ve wanted to do for years. And I just found out that the sprinkle caps and inserts on the plastic bottles of the various Mrs. Dash products we have up in the cupboard, fit these bottles!  So, I’ll be able to save those as we use the Mrs. Dash! Way cool!
