  1. WHATCHA DOING TODAY?

    Unscented dryer sheets is what I've always been told. Just strew them about inside and shut it up for a day or 2, and they absorb the smell.
  2. It works well to soothe & coat the throat as a liquid when people have coughs.

    I'm the sort that watches when they're doing things, and when it went off, then came back on at almost the proper speed, I called the office and asked the lady to tell them that whatever they just did worked, please don't break it again. She started laughing and called the guys who were working on it.

    Lookie, lookie, at the pretty picture! Blood Sugar Changes

    Nah, it was just on the wrong frequency. And there's no lines, so our options are satellite or microwave radio.
  6. WHATCHA DOING TODAY?

    Today, I made a double batch of low carb pancakes for Mom and me. She wanted some to take out camping, I wanted some for...NOMNOMNOM. They came out saltier, I think 'cause I used vegan cream cheese that's a bit saltier than regular and cooked them in salted butter. They're fine once you add plenty of low carb syrup. I need to remember to tell her to make sure she doesn't let the dog lick her plate since the syrup has xylitol. Internet people are trying to figure out why our internet is running at about .36 Mbps (we're supposed to be getting state-of-the-art-top-of-the-line-for-our-area 15 Mbps). They might be out here traipsing up on the roof later to move the receiver.
  7. Off to the ER...

    Yeah, we've run into issues finding mortgage and insurance companies. Pretty much ended up using the people the dealer worked with all the time.
  8. Off to the ER...

    We live in a double-wide mobile home. When we build porches, there will be a ramp at least in the front, and possibly in the back as well. That way, MIL has the option to come visit (she probably still won't much, but she'll have the option), I can roll stuff up and down, and I won't have to negotiate stairs when I have a sprained ankle or my joints are being cranky. I can totally see the reasoning for a 1-story house as you get older (or klutzier, in my case!).

    You can come visit me and it'll be almost 90 today!

    Facebook doesn't like links without either a preview or the hyperlink, sadly. Or fortunately. Depending on your friends.

    MM! Lookey, zero-carb flour!

    They came out pretty tasty. I didn't have any cocoa powder, I should fix that. I tend not to use grains at all, as I have a known problem to enough of them that it's not something I want to experiment with. Seriously, 120g sugar raises my blood sugar to 135. A small bowl of real oatmeal (ie, not instant) raises it to 160. My system is weeeeeird.

    I have a bazillion resources, but as with most things, it's a matter of my brain cooperating enough for me to keep with it. 10 days in this time (I've done it several times, including for several months last summer, but tend to have issues about 3 weeks in). Oh, and these are about to come out of the oven: https://asweetlife.org/low-carb-gingerbread-blender-muffins/ Taking those, jalapeno poppers, and Zevia & vodka with me for drinking tonight instead of my usual margaritas or ciders.

    My main "prep" I'm working on right now is ME. I'm not going to be much use if I'm not healthy. Been doing keto pretty strictly for a week and a half, and dropped my fasting blood sugar by 30, from 115, which means it's not in the pre-diabetic range anymore and is actually at a pretty good number for anybody (80-85). Ate too many carbs yesterday (but not an absurd amount) and it was back up to 95 this morning. I'm going to have to stay on top of this. I'm slowly losing weight and starting to have more energy.

    For the cabbage? Preheat oven to 350F. Cut up a head of cabbage into bite size pieces. Dump it in a big baking pan. Add your favorite cooking oil. I used avocado oil. I've used bacon grease & butter before. Season it (I used Magic Mushroom Powder - that stuff is epic). Stir. Season it more, stir again. Shove in the oven. I left it in for about 25 minutes, I believe. Some pieces start getting black and crispy around the edges. You can stir it about halfway through.
