Goaty and I have been in bed for a long while.
We are sickies!

After being super run-down for a few days and having a lymph node the size of a walnut, I finally gave in and went to Health Services. As my kind roomie John suggested on this post-it note.
Turns out it's mono!
Must have picked it up in my long travels home from Aussieland.

Everyone in my suite has been super great, bringing me food and making sure I don't go stir crazy.
Professors have been understanding.
Friends have been great!
Marmie sent me vitamins.
Hannah-sister sent cookies.

Lots of love pouring in, in the form of cards, emails, and calls from all the awesome people in my life.

Reminding myself to take it easy- that I don't have control over how I'm feeling each day. 
All I can do it rest, hydrate, and eat well!
Mostly functioning at this point and making it to most classes, but naps are required and I have to remember that my GPA can take this hit.

It will all get better eventually!

Recipe Book

This afternoon I had a few recipes I wanted to have in one place.
I cast around for an empty notebook, and for once, I DIDN'T HAVE ONE!
What's a girl to do!?
SO, a few magazines, some paper, and a pizza box became this!

I came across this on Facebook and felt the need to share. I just think it captures my feelings about things too well.


Delicious panini I made the other day for me and my dad after a morning hauling Christmas trees over here at Braintree Balsams:

Neighborly Farms Garlic Cheddar
Oatmeal bread from Manghi's Bread

Words cannot describe this deliciousness!

Video: "The High Price of Materialism"

By a Knox professor!

Homemade Hankie!

In the interest of a sustainably-minded but oft-runny nose,
today I whipped up this little handkerchief!

I found this little bit in a scrap pack I had picked up from Nido last year.
A few pressed seams and a short stint on the sewing machine, and voila!
