Hidden ailments/diseases

Sooo… I ended up having to go to the doctor, who called the next day to check on me (she told me go to the ER), I go to the ER and spend all day, and then end up having to go right back late in the night/early in the morning (depending on how one looks at it), and then they admit me for 2 days. Feeling awful makes it hard to bear oneself, so I didn’t get any knitting or crochet done while there.

I’ve been diagnosed with diverticulitis, along with a few other things. My grandmother suffered from it and my dad has bouts of it too. During an episode, if you want to call it, or a flare up, antibiotics are needed (which lemme tell ya are nasty tasting and can have some aide effects that are down right miserable). Then a low fiber diet, and alot of limitations to certain types of food, like nuts and seeds for example are no no’s. Then when well, a high fiber diet to keep things rolling.

If you’d like more info on the ailment…. here is a pic of simple terms.

I’m looking at making a batch of soap tomorrow will post then.

Iā€™m here again.

Well again I have just been not in the mood or forgetting things. So Im here again!

So here are my soaps I made, all wrapped up ready to be sold! Kiwi šŸ„ Swirl, Mocha Coffee ā˜•ļø and Pink šŸ‹ Lemonade.

I have samples of the Ocean šŸŒŠ Swirl, Oatmeal, Milk šŸ„› & Honey šŸÆ and Pink šŸ‹ Lemonade as well!

I am going to make another batch of soap today or tomorrow. I have been busy with working and trying to find a better job.

I finally got this done! All of it made with yarn I got off wish…not doing that again. Granted it came out looking beautiful, but scratchy.

This is my current project. Asymmetrical Shawl by Red Heart. Got alot of mistakes but it still looks good.

More to come, later.

Soap making

Well, I purchased everything to get atleast one batch if not two different batches of soap done. Unfortunately it is going take awhile to get the supplies to me tho, I thought it would take a few days not over a week.

šŸ˜”, I guess I have to relearn patience…especially since the setting time for the soap is going to be a month as well.

Busy or Productive, which are you?

Have you ever considered when you talk to someone about what you say and what you actually mean?Ā  For example when you say that you are or have been busy and what you actually mean is you have been productive?

When talking to someone, and when asked ‘how have you been?’ or ‘what have you been up to?’ and you respond with ‘busy’, do you consider what that actually means?Ā  I know in my generation (and I have no idea what generation I am in or what my kids are in now, but I digress) we were taught to think more about how we say things before we say them.

Busy

Ok, here is what I mean, do you know what the definition of busy actually is, compared to the word productive?

Definition of busy is having a great deal to do or keeping occupied, according to google.

Definition of productive is yielding results, benefits or profits, according to Merriam-Webster dictionary.

Having Time

So, with that being said, are you busy all the time or are you productive, or to think about it, maybe a mix of both?Ā  In today’s society we use some words interchangeably and sometimes too much.

Here’s another question….when one is being productive are they also busy; which is to say, when one is busy are they being productive s well?Ā  Yea I know, makes you actually think!Ā  There are plenty of times I am busy and not being productive but times I am being productive and am busy!
