The topic: My poor, poor nose


The inside of my nose really hurts. The humidity here is 17%.  The repeated blowing of my nose has dried the inside of my nose out, badly.  You know, when you get a little bit of blood on the tissue from the little broken capillaries or whatever and you get little tiny scabs inside the nose that when they dry pull on the skin. Scabs are not at all stretchy.

I’ve put lotion up there, it helped, but didn’t last long. 

Last week I put Neosporin up there. Major, major mistake, what a horrid smelling ointment.  It doesn’t smell on your finger, but it sure smells in your nose. This morning I tried some Vicks.

I seriously thought I was going to puke.  I got a couple of Q-tips out and got them wet, put some Method liquid soap on them and washed out the interior of my nose.  I rinsed it out thoroughly.  The Vicks smell is gone.  But just to make sure I didn’t keep smelling it (you know how smells can be) I spritzed a little Shalimar on my left wrist. And if I think I smell any of the Vicks, I’ll just sniff my wrist.

I hate being sick.

The topic: Our fave breakfast restaurant


No longer carries sweet potato pancakes.  I guess it wasn’t a big seller and the owner got tired of throwing out over half the batter each day.  So, they no longer have them on the menu.

Earlier this year, due to financial constraints, we cut our Saturday morning breakfasts out back to once a month, not every week.  We figured we were saving at least $75.00 a month by doing so.  Imagine my surprise the first time we went in and my beloved sweet potato pancakes were no longer being made. They were on the menu, but not in the kitchen.  *sigh*

I found some mix on Amazon.  Just ordered some.  It’s not cheap, but I’ll have my sweet potato pancakes on Saturday morning, once again.
